Unhappy Animal Testing on Dogs

Its too late for me now, but incase it ever happens to anyone else, and maybe to help the guilt I have always had, I'd like to pose a question. My first dog of my own was kidnapped out of my backyard. My first reaction was that he somehow got away. But, his collar was hanging up on a post and unhooked from his run line and the gate to the yard open. I called the pounds and posted a reward sign and went through some grueling visits everytime there was a "group rescue" of several dogs (including once case of a crazy old lady that had over a 100 dogs and cats). I finally was told that he was probably stolen to be sold to the science labs. I was living near johns hopkins medical school where there are numerous study labs etc. I tried calling around but ofcourse animal testing is not anyone is willing to talk about. The idea that he spent the rest of his life as a guinea pig in a cage was and still is unbearable to me. I still wonder WHAT COULD I HAVE DONE TO FIND HIM? Now that there is internet I feel like I might have been able to find help. Are there any associations that deal with this issue? I wish there were a law that required them to post all animals to the local pound or something. My poor chubaka, i had to learn the hard way.

I'm so sorry for your loss...I don't know what you could have done to prevent it. It sounds like you did everything in your power to find him. Maybe you should write into your local news station or newspaper and tell your story. Your community needs to know what is going on. If nothing else, perhaps you will spread awareness and get the thieves to stop stealing other dogs. I am fearful for my horses because around my area, people have been stealing horses to sell them for slaughter. I can't imagine how you must be feeling..

(I know your post was a long time ago) I'm soo sorry that happened! That must have been sooo hard! I can't even imagine what that would feel like. I think you should share your story and educate people on animal testing. . .and help people be more aware of people willing to steal peoples' dogs, like cowgurl said!
