Guardians of Rescue Begins Sting Investigations into Hazardous Internet Pet Sales

As the world embraces the age of technology, everything is available online----including the sale of pets. Guardians of Rescue, a nationwide animal rescue organization, has stepped up to protect these poor animals from the cruelty of being bought and sold via the Internet. Guardians of Rescue is working with law enforcement in various states to try to reduce the amount of harm inflicted on these innocent dogs.

“Getting a new pet is always a big decision, and buying a dog you haven’t met in person is not smart,” says Dori Scofield, vice-president of Guardians of Rescue, an organization whose mission is to protect the well-being of all animals. “If you buy a dog through the Internet, you risk supporting puppy mill cruelty and being scammed out of your money. The Internet is also used by criminals to buy and sell fighting dogs, using certain understood language.”

Sentencing set for man who shot at White House


WASHINGTON (AP) - An Idaho man who pleaded guilty to shooting at and hitting the White House is set to be sentenced.

Prosecutors say Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez should spend 27 years in prison for the 2011 shooting. His sentencing is scheduled for Monday afternoon. No one was injured, but prosecutors say Ortega-Hernandez hit the executive mansion about eight times and did nearly $100,000 in damage.

Ortega-Hernandez's lawyers say he was suffering from extreme depression and mental stress at the time of the shooting and was under the misguided belief that Armageddon was coming. They argue the 23-year-old should only spend 10 years in prison.

Prosecutors initially charged Ortega-Hernandez with attempting to assassinate President Barack Obama but agreed to drop the charge as part of a plea deal in 2013.
