Dharma Goes to Jeff City

April 20th was Humane Day, when animal related organizations from around Missouri travel to Jefferson City to talk to legislators about humane animal issues. Dharma and Mutts-n-Stuff were at the state capital to talk to lawmakers about the big bust last year and the horrible plague of dog fighting that is afflicting the state. Legislation has been proposed that would make things a lot harder for dog fighters and a little easier for bust dogs. We had no idea what a celebrity Dharma is! Many people – including members of the state House and Senate – recognized Dharma immediately. She was a real trooper and gave lots of kisses and snuggles. Here are some pictures from her big day. These were taken by photographer Mike Bizelli, who took the pictures at the bust site last July. He was thrilled to be able to take some new pictures of Dharma now that she is happy and healthy.

Dharma takes a break from the crowds.

Nobody can resist Dharma's sweet little face.

  1. I get overwhelmed when I think of all the inhumane and unjust acts that people are capable of performing but then I visit my bookmarked Mutt’s Blog and I read about the very good that come from people. Thank you for being a voice for the animals. They deserve such compassion and understanding.

  2. I agree with Teresa. I get very overwhelmed but the cruelty people unleash on these loving dogs. But then I see the selfless work the people and rescues do and once again I am amazed. Thank you for all you do.
