MAY 13, 2005: Well, it's finally here...the day the SPCA...and 76-lb. Samson!...have been anticipating. After careful screening, education, and interviews, Samson was placed in a loving, new home. He'll be living with fellow greyhound and new brother, Rover, in the Olean home of the Meccas. See photos below for the happy union with his new family...and a tearful goodbye as he leaves the SPCA. Now, the wonderful Meccas have promised to keep us updated, to send us photos, and to bring him in to visit, so this isn't the end of the Samson news. Keep visiting SPCAEC.com for photos of Samson in his new home, and for news on former owner Ida Thomas' animal cruelty trial, scheduled to begin later this month.
MAY 5, 2005: Although the court trial for Samson was scheduled to begin today, his former owner's attorney requested further motions and case dismissal mere hours before the 2 pm start time. Judge McLeod did NOT dismiss the case, rescheduling the trial to begin Thursday, May 26, 9:30 am in Buffalo City Court. Read Samson's story below...
APRIL 13, 2005: Starved and dehydrated, Samson came to the SPCA on March 15, 2005 (his 'owner,' Ida Thomas, pled 'not guilty' in Buffalo City Court this morning on charges of animal cruelty; her trial is scheduled to begin May 5, in front of Judge James A. W. McLeod. For related headlines, go to the SPCAEC.com News page, first on your left-hand menu bar.). Since his arrival, with the help of donations from animal-lovers throughout the country, he's been making a remarkable recovery while under the care of the SPCA infirmary/ kennel staff. He's slowly gaining his weight back, and although his wounds still have a long way to go before being fully healed, Samson has remained affectionate, loving, and always ready for a hug...or a meal.
