Dear Mom & Dad, Last week you took me for a ride and left me at this place called the shelter. I’ve been waiting every minute for you to come back and get me, and I’m wondering if you forgot. For the last 10 years I’ve been with you and loved & adored you. I’ve been there to wag my …

DEAD in 7 Days

Take a good look at this dog. It could have been your dog. It could have been anyones dog, but it wasn’t… She was just another statistic in an “Animal Care” system that isn’t working… NOT AT ALL. The little girl was 2 years old when she was killed. Not by thugs, a car accident, not from sickness or negligence, …

Here is the email I received… The photos above are self explanatory…“Apparently the owner said Chaquira was fine with people and other dogs. Upon impoundment June 6th it was noted she tried to bite. She has been in isolation at the ANNEX at South Los Angeles where nobody sees her unless they specifically ask to be taken to the ANNEX. Now it is said …

Why Do We Call Them “Shelters?”

Bound Angels Blog Leave a Comment

When children are taken out of abusive homes they are put in “foster care.” When criminals are taken out of society they are put in prisons. No matter how crowded these systems get or how sick the humans get within these systems, they are never killed. Which leads me to question the integrity with which we treat animals. Of course …

When Those Who Are Supposed Save – Cause Death

Robert Cabral Blog Leave a Comment

This is a topic that could span many posts, as most of the dogs and cats that die today, do so at the hands of those we entrust to save and protect them. For the most part I would point the finger at the failing “shelter system.” However, since entering into the rescue community I’ve also found that many others …

the Sanctuary Irony – I’m Mad as Hell

Robert Cabral Blog Leave a Comment

I’d like to start out and “re-emphasise” that I started BOUND ANGELS as a media awareness organization, not a hands on rescue. I have been flung into rescuing a few dogs here and there. I receive much praise, and some criticism. Today I received an email response to my last blog entry that asked me to “temper my anger” because …

5 Dogs Saved from DEATH- Thank you!

Robert Cabral Blog Leave a Comment

To say I’m emotional at this moment would be a grand understatement. Since last Sunday May 18th, I’ve been working this case…and pretty much nothing else. This is the case of 5 dogs scheduled to be KILLED at the LA County Shelter. They belonged to a “challenged” man, who truly became a victim of the system. One of his dogs …

Robert Cabral Blog Leave a Comment

I’ve had no less than 500 emails about this rescue. My hands are tired from typing, so I figured if I write the synopsis here, everyone may read it and I can keep busy rescuing and training dogs. Think that might happen?? lets see. OK, to start off with, the rescue is progressing quite well. In spite of me not …

First off, thank to those of you who already opened your hearts and wallets to donate to saving these dogs. Here’s the update: The team at Bound Angles have been in negotiations with Torrance City Attorney to give us a couple more days extension on the dogs we are trying to rescue.
