    Manchester dogs home is on fire with all the dogs yelping
    7:46 PM - 11 Sep 2014 Manchester, United Kingdom



    More than 40 dogs have been killed in a huge blaze at a Manchester dogs’ home. A 14-year-old male has been arrested on suspicion of arson, according to Great Manchester Police. Firefighters were called to the scene around 7pm after a fire was spotted in the kennel section. Around 150 dogs were rescued, however 43 reportedly died in the blaze.
    Local residents said they could hear "dogs yelping" as the fire spread. Hundreds of residents flocked to the site in Moss Brook Road with dog blankets, cages and food, with some reportedly helping to save some of the animals. More than 30 firefighters brought the blaze under control with damage caused to about a third of the kennels.

    A joint investigation by Greater Manchester Police and Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service is under way as dampening down at the home continues. Superintendent Marcus Noden said: "We are working closely with Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service to establish how this tragedy has occurred.
    "We are in the very early stages of the investigation and have a young boy in custody, however we would ask if anyone was in the area and remembers seeing anything suspicious around the dogs' home that they call police and tell us what they know. As a dog owner myself I understand that many people will feel angry and upset about what has happened but I would ask that they let the police carry out their investigations and not take matters into their own hands.
    "We have received an overwhelming response from the public and would ask if anyone wants to help they can make donations of food or bedding to North Manchester divisional headquarters on Northampton Road in Newton Heath."

    GMFRS station commander Paul Duggan said that some parts of the roof of the single-storey kennel section had collapsed and firefighters were working to ensure it was made safe before assessing the full damage. Anna Stansfield, manager of Cheshire Dogs Home, described the blaze as "soul destroying" and added all the rescued dogs would be transferred to its site in Cheshire.

    She said she could not comment on the circumstances of the blaze but confirmed that four members of staff were working there at the time. Ms Stansfield said: "I cannot describe what we have seen tonight. It's soul destroying. We are so grateful to the people of Manchester and Greater Manchester who have come to support us but we need to get the roads clear so we can get the dogs out."
    Manchester & Cheshire Dogs' Home opened in 1893 and has rehomed more than one million dogs. The registered charity is said to care for more than 7,000 stray and unwanted dogs each year and manages to rehome 95% of them. A surge in donations on its its JustGiving website took place in the wake of the blaze.
    Among those donating were Dominic Hunt who wrote "Heartbreaking. I wish I could give more" and Susan and Leanne Gresty, who said: "There are no words to describe the sadness we are feeling for the poor little animals who have lost their lives and those that are suffering tonight."

    Singer Jodie Prenger, a patron for Manchester & Cheshire Dogs' Home, tweeted: " All my thoughts are with you guys. It's broke my heart to hear such sad news."
    Battersea Dogs & Cats Home said it was "incredibly saddened" to learn of the fire. A spokeswoman said: "We extend our deepest sympathies to all the staff and volunteers at the centre.
    "We understand this tragic incident may have led to the loss of life of several rescue dogs. Battersea is very willing to help in any way we can over the coming days and weeks and we have attempted contact with the Manchester rescue centre to see how we can support them at this difficult time."

    I can't read the whole thing, my heart just breaks. How disgusting. I hope nothing but the worst for this piece of shit. I hope he finds misery around every corner in life. A painful, miserable life. Ugh.

    Shoveling? How about eating it, three meals a day, forever.

    This even made me cry. Just thinking about the whole trapped thing, gets me going again. I always attach human emotions to animals, so I can't help but think of the terror and panic, that the poor dogs were going through. The trapped in their kennels throws it into the torture category, and that makes me sick.

    Terrible. I hope the asshole that did this forever regrets it. He's going to have to watch his back.

    On a positive side the public reaction has been heartwarming. So much money donated already.

    Great minds think alike!

    I'm going to donate. I can't think of a better cause right now. And since 1893! that rehoming percentage! What an amazing charity.

    I hope they put that little shit away for a long, long time if he is guilty of this. Just evil.
