Thea was found dying in a trailer with dead bodies of dogs around her.
Breaking news from our partners at the Humane Society of Louisiana: WDSU TV, Channel 6, reports that an arrest in the case that left two dogs dead and a third clinging to life may be imminent. What these cowards did is unthinkable. A terrible smell from a nearby trailer, lead a couple to investigate. Peering through a window, they saw the carcasses of two dogs and a third, tethered to a door knob, barely alive. We have created this campaign to help raise the funds needed to save Thea’s life. You can save her with every purchase of our Animal Awareness tees and jewelry.
A team of rescuers broke down the door, entered the trailer and safely removed the now named “Thea”. Rescuers immediately contacted both the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office and the Humane Society of Louisiana. Detective Demi Rice, the department's lead animal cruelty investigator, has been assigned the case and predicts that a suspect will soon be arrested.
Thea was rushed to the Emergency Vet to save her life. Should would not have survived another day. Medically Thea is a mess. Her body virtually destroyed. She is being treated for heartworm disease, anemia, and hook and whip worms infestation. Without being rescued when she did, Thea would have likely died, still tied to a door knob.
The Washington Parish Sheriff's Office will arrest the individual responsible for this crime and charge him with three counts of felony cruelty to animals.
To say we need your help is an understatement. We have partnered with the Humane Society of Louisiana to create the Animal Welfare Awareness candles, jewelry and apparel you see below. With every purchase you help give Thea the life saving care she desperately needs. With your help she will never feel pain again.

Our humane society was established in 1988. We operate two no-kill sanctuary: one for companion animals and one for farm animals. We are also a private detective agency, licensed by the state and one of our primary activities is to investigate cruelty to animal complaints. We work directly with dozens of law enforcement agencies on a regular basis, providing tips and logistical support, especially in the rural areas of Louisiana, where there are few resources for animals.
