The dogs need your help. Please take a few minutes to read
this and act soon. Then forward this to everyone you know.
Julia Hudson is a terrible breeder in Lancaster County
Nebraska. The Department of Agriculture and the sheriff’s office have
visited often and found horrible, horrible conditions. They have found
conditions typical of any puppy mill: feces piled in cages; filthy water;
small, cramped cages and dogs with their teeth literally rotting in their
mouths. What makes this horrible, according to Hearts
United who ended up with some of the dogs, is the dogs with open wounds and
holes rotted through upper jaws and into sinus cavities,
The county filed charges a few months ago. Last week, Hudson pled
no contest to animal cruelty and neglect and she was found guilty. The
prosecutor has worked hard on this case and is to be commended. The
hearing for the sentencing is October 25.
Last year, we worked to get a law on the books (Nebraska Statute
28-1019). This law would make it clear to judges that they have the right
to prohibit someone found guilty from owning any animals for 5 years. This
simply must be applied to this case. It would be horrible to allow this
treatment to continue.
These poor little dogs are looking to you for help – each one of
you. Our voices are all they have.
Today, please write to Judge Phillips and ask him specifically
to include Nebraska Statute 28-1019 as part Julia Hudson's sentence, so
she cannot own animals again for a period of five years. She has had
plenty of chances to change the way she cares for her dogs and has chosen not
to do so. It is time for the law to step in and stop further abuse and
neglect of these dogs as well as any new ones she might acquire. Please
ask him to consider her continued abuse and neglect in his pre-sentence
investigation. Also ask that the dogs currently on her property
be turned over to Hearts United for Animals immediately after sentencing.
Include the case number and be very polite and professional.
Case: State v. Julia Hudson
Case number: CR13-2975
Address letters to:
The Honorable Timothy Phillips
Lancaster County Court
575 S. 10th Street, 2nd Floor
Lincoln, NE 68508
Hearts United is planning a demonstration at the Courthouse on the
day of sentencing - we will be joining them. Please watch the NHS
website for details of the demonstration. We would like to show law
enforcement and the Department of Agriculture that puppy mills must be stopped
and the owner’s dogs removed immediately, and for as long as possible.
Let’s stand together for the dogs!
Please forward this to everyone! We must be the voice for
those poor dogs – we are their only voice.
Genevieve asked to make a sign for her mom. She picked out the wording for the sign. We started with an Artist's Loft 11"x14" white canvas. Genevieve painted the canvas Turquoise Craftsmart paint with a foam brush. She wanted to add some bling. We went thru my "stash" and found some bling and cute flowers that had bling in the center of the flowers.
Genevieve is holding her completed sign and anxious to give it to her mom! Genevieve told me when she grows up she wants to be like me make crafts. (Unlike me) she will put them on E-bay and try to sell them! Future Entrepreneur! You go girl!
I am watching my 9 year old Granddaughter for the weekend. She asked me if I would make a sign for her. She picked out the wording. V.I.P.M. = Very Important Princess Model. She enjoys pretending to model her bathing suit or the dress up clothes in the closet. I saw the words "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful" in the Silhouette on-line store. I made my own version using my free fonts. She saw the words printed and in cursive. Genevieve liked the "cursive" font better.
This is Genevieve holding her sign she designed!
The Artist's Loft canvas was purchased at Michael's craft store. The canvas is 11"x14". The canvas originally white and was painted Ebony black Americana acrylic paint. Pink vinyl was cut out with the Silhouette Cameo and transferred to the dried canvas.
