(Muncie, Indiana) – Grateful Rescue and Sanctuary is asking for donations and assistance from the public after saving 15 dogs from a backyard breeding eviction. “When these precious dogs arrived at our facility, they were scared and unsocialized. We’re currently spending time with each one, making sure they are getting the proper veterinary care, food and behavior training”, said Pamela Terhune, founder of Grateful Rescue. The dogs include two Huskies, a Chocolate Labrador, two Bernese Mountain Dog mixes and a Goldendoodle. A backyard breeder is an amateur animal breeder whose breeding may be considered substandard. Unlike puppy mills and other animal mill operations, backyard breeders breed on a small scale, usually at home with their own pets. Donations can be made at Grateful Rescue’s website, GratefulRescue.org. The community is already coming together to help Grateful Rescue. Roo’s Holistic Pet Supplies in Muncie is providing dog food, chew toys and nutrition guidance. City Fence has built fencing to help give the dogs a safe place to roam and exercise. ARF Animal Rescue Fund in Muncie is assisting with veterinary care services. Action for Animals has also been sending food. “These dogs came from heartbreaking conditions. A dark barn, with dirt floors and no electricity”, said Terhune. The community has responded to pleas for escape-proof harnesses and Kuranda Beds. Supplies are still needed. Grateful Rescue INC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Grateful Rescue takes unwanted domestic dogs & cats that find their way to us, rehabilitate and place them in loving homes.

Appeals court upholds a sentence: late last week, the Indiana Court of Appeals ruled that Madison County Circuit 4 Judge David A. Happe did not rely on an improper aggravating factor when he sentenced Trey M. Fields of Anderson, accused of stalking the same victim in spite of several convictions in multiple counties. The Herald Bulletin reported that in July 2016, Fields entered into a plea agreement. 25 of the 37 years sentence is to be served, and 12 to be suspended to probation.

Radio worked – TV did not: viewers watching Big Ten Network’s Rutgers-Indiana broadcast from Bloomington Saturday were treated to a weird series of technical issues. In the end, it meant missing a chunk of an entire drive in favor of a long, and at first unexplained, commercial break. After IU lost, some IU students apparently took off their clothes in protest for the loss.
