Donna Deathrow and her above ground cemetary...Hoarding is a documented mental illness. In this particular case we have a breed specific nutcase!

"Dethrow is also not breaking any laws."

The law is an ass!

Call this rescue? What a disgrace! Tying dogs on a leash all day, what a life.

Additional background on the story here (though I find it hard to believe that Shawnee bans the breeding of pit bulls as the state is ruled by an Anti-BSL law):

This is a pit bull breeding operation.

Dog fighters and fighter breeders have for some time used the "rescue" cover to hide their operations, including fighting breeding and tax cheating.

They also sometimes use the "show dog" or "pulling dog" or "responsible breeder" cover.

This woman needs to be reported to state and federal tax authorities. She is running an unlicensed business and not reporting income.

Another notch for unlicensed facilities. I really feel sorry for her neighbors - who are so afraid they won't even make a statement.
Do we have to wait for the third attack - one that will be fatal? Something is wrong with a system that waits until someone is killed or injured before something is done. Hey, wait! They've already attacked twice!

One more reason NOT to chain your dog:

"Carbon County sheriff's deputies say the lightning hit a large tree in her backyard Friday night and traveled along a metal wire strung between several trees. The medium-sized dog's metal leash was tied to the wire, and the charge killed him when it reached his metal collar."

By "Best Friends Animal Hospital" does she mean Best Friends Animal Sanctuary?

Is this Best Friends and their breeder enablement "No Kill" agenda at work?

This appears to be an organization in Shawnee (first link). There are others in the U.S. as well:

Add Shawnee to the Pit Bull Leading Bite blog post.

"Chris Thomas, the Administrator of Support Services with the Shawnee Police Department said, "Most of our bites, our attacks are pit bulls, and as you drive around town you see them all over the place and most of them are loose."

This woman looks kind of mentally retarded. I don't see how she can properly care for herself.

Anonymous Felony  |  8/10/2009 11:16 AM  |  Flag  
I just called
Best Friends Animal Hospital
3601 N Harrison St
Shawnee, OK 74804-2248
(405) 273-5617‎

And I spoke to the former head kennel asst and guess what? They do NOT offer and have never offered any courses or certificates.

DANA DETHROW is not just a retard, she is a LIAR! The news media should not let this go. There is something fishy going on here. People need to close her down.

Anonymous Anonymous  |  8/10/2009 3:46 PM  |  Flag  
Felony, have you contacted the editor of that newspaper? They might be very interested in that information!

I also wonder if the police would be interested.

She has now established herself as a liar.

A basic question: HOW DOES THIS WOMAN FEED 15 DOGS? How does she pay for basic veterinary care x 15 dogs? How does it work actually? I'd be so interested to know!

This woman has an illness. Is there no animal control organization that can shut her down?
Noise violation, no permit and too many animals...?

This Canine IED Cell is just another grotesque example of pit Bull community breed stewardship.

Regulate NOW!!!!

what is the sherriff doing? Dogs from this 'kennel' have attacked twice -is there any governing agent that will protect the people? Is that not high priority?

Why you can't afford a dog:
"How much is that doggy in the window? At least $8,000 over his lifetime -- and that's just for basic expenses. Fido costs a lot more if he gets sick, chews up your work boots or ruins the rug...In short, if you can't find at least an extra $800 to $1,000 in your budget every year, don't get a pet."

Gee, and what if you can't afford the 25/50/75/100k + medical bills cost if your "chained rescued" pit bull attacks? ANIMAL HOARDERS cost society and ONLY keep costing society. These hoarders must be stopped. They have NO WAY of paying for vet care much less the medical care of an attacked victim!

Tonight's news followup for a surprise visit found dogs in 90+ degree weather with water containers turned over; flies all over the dogs, one caught in his chain in a tree - how horrifying! When asked of the law enforcement - the reporters were greeted with - there's more complaints from the media than from the neighbors. I hope everyone is appalled by such a seen. Check out Fox 25 okc's coverage.

Something funny going on here. I called that hospital and the woman who answered said NO they do not offer courses/certifications. She in turn asked others nearby and they said NO they do not offer courses, and added that to their knowledge, they have never offered courses on anything. So i don't know what to think about this woman in the interview.

What kind of rescue keeps dogs tied out in chains, with flies swarming around them? What a fraud.

I know some pit bull rescue groups are run by kind hearted people that want to help dogs. But many are just hoarders and nut cases that don't actually care about the welfare of animals.

So where is Best Friends ANIMAL SANCTUARY of Utah? Where is Ledy VanKavage? Where is their pit bull advocacy? They show up to scream about aggressive fighting dogs. They ship Ledy around the country to advocate for pit bull breeders. Here are pit bulls getting abused and killed. Where is Best Friends? Why aren't they protesting? Why aren't they screaming to the media about poor pit bulls? Why isn't Ledy out there saving these dogs?


Anonymous Anonymous  |  8/23/2009 12:50 PM  |  Flag  
They're not all over this case, because there aren't any dollar signs flashing all over it. Don't you know Best Friends and Van Savage only care about pit bulls that bring them money?

here we are twiddling our thumbs while dogs get caught in trees, people get attacked, and neighbors are scared to speak up - and it's not a priority on the sherrif's stack of 'things to do' - who is protecting who?

Unbelievable! Another "chained" dog is struck by lightning:

"Stormy weather is forecast to continue in northeast Tennessee where heavy downpours and lighting strikes have occurred. The Johnson City Press reported a dog was killed Wednesday when lightning struck a tree to which it was chained."
