In four years of producing this blog, we’ve never seen a story like this one. Two years ago, the Humane Society of Pulaski County (Arkansas) rescued more than 160 dogs from a breeder named Sandra Nance, who was later charged with animal negligence. However, Nance sued to get her dogs back, and in May a court ordered HSPC to return the dogs. As you might imagine, the Humane Society volunteers who have been caring for these dogs are not happy.

Please do NOT give these poor souls back to that breeder, please.
Now, on the face of it all this might sound cruel. But like in child custody and ward cases, when children are later turned over to their original parents from their foster homes by court order (or by reversing a previous court order), these parents have had to show how they mended their ways and all that. Might it not be that this breeder has since improved conditions and mended her ways to such an extent (though it may remain to be seen if it holds) that a court which has to respect due process and property laws as well as animal rights, had to turn the dogs over to the original owner again?
