Dog Day for ARF

It has been widely reported today that the Animal Rescue Fund on Mayes Street was vandalized and burglarized last night.  Misery loves company as more of it was dumped on the ARF today. The Executive Director posted this message on Facebook a little while ago:

ARF was broken into last night.  Window busted out.  I called David Glass and Mirror this morning to get it replaced and our building secure. Told them we were vulnerable.  Told them it needed to be done today.  They assured me someone would come today. I just called back. Not only did they not show, when i just called back inwas told they "aint gonna do it today and don't care.   Now our building is wide open and it is too late to get another glass company out. ...

Lowes - and Home Depot - both sell 5/8" plywood. That's what most people do when they have a busted window; doesn't take a glass person, just a skilsaw and a hammer. That way, don't have to demand immediate service, and keeps the facility secure.

Buying the plywood is not the problem.
Getting the labor done it is the problem.

4:29, my comment will sounds sexist, but do you really think a bunch of cat women from ARF are going to head over to Lowe's and buy some plywood? And then bring it back in their 2-door car? And then cut it to size with what saw they having laying around?

Why don't you head over there and do the job yourself, ToolMan?

Ugh. Used David Glass for a project and that sounds about right. Was generally underwhelmed. Kept telling them the urgency of timing their work. Showed up hours late and failed to get the project done in the time window we needed and spilled over into interfering with operations. And they got sassy like that on the phone quite a bit.

Watched the news ... but two to three minutes into this feed i realized I could't handle the damn dogs barking constantly... and "I AM" a dog and cat person. Pippa jackson is a saint for being able to walk thru this EVERYDAY and not be rattled by this non-stop rap-rap-rap of dog babble crap !! Kudos to her and staff!

Were you bullied as a child? Or maybe you still live in mom’s basement as a middle aged man...Whatever it is that happened in your life, it caused you to be a miserable human being to post something so hateful when you know nothing about ARF or what happened to them. ARF does nothing but good for our community and you thank them with anonymous attacks and offensive allegations. Your misery must be unbearable. I feel sorry for you.

I've used David Glass several times in the past and never had a problem with them. Sounds like they've got new management or something has changed.

It's on Mayes Street, just leave it unlocked, that way they won't break the glass. That's what I do whenever I go in the hood.

Oh...I feel vulnerable so I think I'll put a piece of sixteenth inch glass between me and the 'vulnerability source' so I can feel unvulnerable. Ahhhh. that feels so much better.

What the hell is there to steal at a cat rescue house? Wait! The burglar must have been a Senior Citizen if he was after cat and dog food.

Reminds me of the soup kitchens who, every December, claim their supply of canned goods is depleted plus they've been broken into.

8:13am I'm sure they were looking for drugs.

8;13 - you must not think an animal shelter needs pet medicine, dog food, computers, blank checks and furniture to operate? All nice things to steal. Why don't you show a little remorse for your stupid comments and drop off a check this morning? Better yet, clean a kennel or help feed some dogs. How about some dog food, bleach and sanitizer wipes? How about being a doer instead of a complainer? I'll be there this afternoon. Be glad to show you how to make the world a better place.

They were after animal pain killers. That's why they ram sacked the pharmacy. I love CARA & ARF. Took 2 cats & 5 kittens to ARF because they cause my house to get over run with fleas. Peoples at church thought I had the measles with so many flea bites. Wow!

7:09 PM You can go sit on a tack.

I wish Kingfish would let us attach pictures.

These were "cat burglars."

11:12 I'll bet you do love them. Take all your cats there because they have fleas?!!! Certain they don't have the same opinion of you.

EVIL souls at August 17, 2018 at 7:09 PM, August 18, 2018 at 8:13 AM and 8:56 PM, I hope to hell y'all are neutered! What is wrong with you???????? If you ever gave, if you ever volunteered, or even ventured out of your basements or mansions, or whatever narrow environment you spew from, you would see that animals and people are sincerely in need, and good people like those at ARF, CARA, "soup kitchens" and so many others are thankfully there to provide. They do have to ask for help from the community, and most of us are more than happy to volunteer or donate as we can. But you miserable SOBs wouldn't even buy a can of soup or drop a quarter into the red kettle at Christmas. Prayers for your Grinchy hearts!

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
