Horses Perish in Barn Fire Wednesday Morning in Janesville Wisconsin.

Horses Parish in Barn Fire
When I received the call from Cindy Bondowski that she had lost 24 horses in a barn fire this morning, I couldn’t stop thinking “why?”  
I realize there are heartbreaking tragedies everyday that affect people all over the world but I just couldn’t stop thinking about Cindy’s loss.
You see? Cindy and Jim are some of the most caring people I have ever met.  They both have a profound love for animals who work their horse rescue 24/7 to save horses, retrain them and then find good homes for them.
I visited Cindy and Jim and met many of the horses who perished in Wednesday’s barn fire.   
Cindy could hardly speak when we chatted but I could understand clearly when she said, “I rescued them and worked hard to save them and to give them a better life, and I lost them.”
I can only imagine the pain that Cindy and Jim are enduring as they grieve for their horses at this very moment… that said, my thoughts and prayers will be with them for quite awhile.
Animal Fairy Charities pays tribute to Jim and Cindy for all of their tireless efforts to help horses in need.  We can only hope that they will find the strength to rebuild and to recommit their lives to the passion that gave them so much love in return.
If you’ve missed one of our shows that featured Jim and Cindy and some of the horses who were lost in today’s fire… please go here: AATV Featuring H.O.R.S.E. (Janesville, WI)
Animal Fairy Charities would also like to help raise support for Jim and Cindy to help them rebuild their barn and their lives. If you would like to donate to help Jim and Cindy, please log on here: and enter “Jim and Cindy’s Horse rescue” in the comments field.

With a heavy heart,

Candlelight vigil to be held on Fri, Nov 26 for dogfighting victim

Last Friday evening, a MADACC animal control officer (ACO) received a call from Urban Ecology Center staff that a female pit bull was trying to get out of the lagoon in Washington Park. The dog’s severe scarring proved she was a long-time bait dog involved in extensive dogfighting here in Milwaukee. (Bait dogs are dogs used in training exercises with fight dogs.) Someone attempted to drown the dog in the lagoon, but some how she miraculously survived and made it to shore. The dog was rescued by MADACC’s ACO;  however, she was in such bad shape including having violent seizures, that ultimately, MADACC humanely euthanized her to end her suffering.

Unfortunately, this sad story happens more often than many people in Milwaukee know.

MADACC’s Battle Against Dogfighting (BAD) program is organizing a candlelight vigil to recognize Lucy, the dog brutalized and killed on last Friday. The event is not only to mourn the lost of Lucy, but for the numerous dogs still out there, waiting to be saved. We hope to raise awarenss in the community to make sure such cruelty does not continue to happen in the darkness. Please join us: 
Friday, November 26 at 6:30pm at the Washington Park lagoon (40th & Lisbon, Milwaukee; near the Urban Ecology Center).
