Animal Stories

Luke & Ike

A while back, two beautiful Percherons, named Luke & Ike, served their purpose to a carriage company and were subsequently discarded, like trash, by their owner to suffer the horrors of starvation, no vet care, no farrier, no nothing. In steps the real hero, a sworn law enforcement Humane Agent named Heather. After months of observing and trying her hardest (as animal laws unfortunately don't give a lot of wiggle room for actually helping) and after many visits to the abuser at his home, Heather was able to get this man to sign over Luke & Ike to her (I might mention she got there just in the knick of time as he had his vet there to put them down to try to stya out of trouble). This woman is incredible and has done all she can to protect the ones that cannot speak for themselves. She didn't have an absolute plan, but she saved the boys. In steps the Humane Society of Greater Dayton, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization who I don't believe has ever been recognized for their huge part in saving the boys. This Humane Society and Heather found the rescue organization that would house the boys until they could find a home. The reason I am writing this morning is to let you all know who is really responsible for saving the lives of the boys and from the bottom of my heart, I sing your praises Heather and the Humane Society of Greater Dayton. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Your heart my break daily with what you see and deal with, but I thank you for having the courage to step up and speak for those who have no voice. My boys are proof of your huge heart. 

- Karen, owner of Luke & Ike
