Another Great Story From Houston’s Corridor of Cruelty – A Big Thank You To Those Saving These Animals!
This is a letter regarding Deborah Hoffman, founder of Corridor Rescue, a rescue group that saves abandoned and sick animals from an area of Houston dubbed The Corridor of Cruelty. Deborah and her team of volunteers, veterinarians, etc. save many injured animals that have suffered greatly. What a blessing to have such big hearts in our community. If you can possibly help them, they would love the assistance!!

I LOVE a story, so here goes…..your “feel good” story to start off the week. After meeting this terrified Border Collie at BARC on Thursday evening, and seeing him curl up his lip, it seemed there might be no hope for him. But after hearing of his traumatic capture that day, including a wild chase and being darted, I thought he deserved another look, as did others.Read More

Crime Stoppers has a new plan to put a dent in a crime that law
enforcement says is increasing in Harris County.
On Wednesday they announced the second annual animal cruelty and
anti-dog fighting campaign.
Investigators are targeting a quarter mile area east of U.S. 59 off of
West Little York known as the “Corridor of Cruelty.”
It’s one of the saddest locations in all of Houston that’s been
frustrating officers and animal lovers for more than a year.
People come there to dump unwanted animals.
“It is a crime to dump live animals,” said Belinda Smith, Harris County
Assistant District Attorney.
I absolutely love the point Hair Balls has made in his blog about today’s Houston Chronicle article titled “Can BARC Chief Pull Off A Miracle”. Here is his point:
“If you heard what sounded like a sonic boom this morning, it was the thunderclap of Hair Balls’s head exploding. And why would that be? Because one of the nation’s biggest newspapers — the daily for the fourth-largest city in the country — allowed a columnist to print the bizarre evangelical ramblings of a private consultant who was hired in secret to do the work that the director of Health and Human Services should have been doing over the last five years”.
Yes, that’s right. We are paying a “consultant” to do what our tax dollars were ALREADY paying our government to do. Again..please exercise your vote for Mayor and city council members this November!!Read More
