is about a 1 year old Black Lab mix. Forall
was one of the dogs who was rescued from
the notorious C.C. Baird Martin Creek Kennels
and Patsy's "Pat's Pine Tree Farms"
after Baird, Patsy Baird, Jeannette Baird,
and Patricia Baird, their agents and employees,
successors and assigns, directly or through
any corporate or other device, were ordered
to cease and desist from violating the Animal
Welfare Act and the Regulations and Standards
and had to pay the largest penalty in history
of $250,000 plus another $250,000 if Baird
or his family attempt to be involved with
dogs/cats. Baird sold these dogs to research
labs all over the United States. Almost
all teaching Universities like UAMS in Little
Rock use animals in research projects. Some
of the dealers are called Class B dealers
and have "random source" dogs.
Legally, a random source dog is supposed
to only be sold by an individual who breeds
and is the actually the owner of the dog.
Unfortunately, most of these dogs are "Free
to Good Home" dogs in the paper, strays
and some are actually stolen family pets
out of their own backyard.
A scared and hungry Forall during his registration
by the USDA at the Baird place.
have no idea where Forall came from, who
previously owned him or what kind of life
he has had. He is a young Lab mix, about
1 year old, sweet and friendly and was saved
from being a research lab animal. Once you
pet Forall, he is stuck to you like glue.
He loves attention and is so sweet and loving.
He has been very dog friendly but has met
a few dogs he didn’t care for. Forall
just licks and licks you so he is considered
a somewhat needy dog and would need to be
adopted by some one who wants a needy, loving
dog. He is not real independent although
he might become more so after learning how
to live outside of the compound where he
has been for some time.
Look at me now!
upon thousands of dogs passed through CC
Baird's property in Williford, Arkansas,
but thanks to the efforts of Last
Chance for Animals and the
that will not happen any more. There are
only 4 Class B dealers left in the US. Efforts
are being made to change the laws to make
it illegal to use "random source"
animals. You can read more about this on
World Wide Woof message board
and the article "No
Free to Good Homes". Forall's
story will hopefully help educate the public
about why it is important to microchip your
dog and never give dogs away for free, ever!
You can come and meet Forall at the WLR
Petco every Sat and Sun on Chenal Parkway
across from Target and Home Depot. We will
be there from 1-5. Forall's adoption fee
is $75 and covers all of her vetcare to
include spay, rabies, heartworm test and
preventative, microchipping and payment
of 50% of basic training classes.
And quite by chance we discovered that at DogsOnly, Forall formally Number 53's ID tag is No. 1
