Two refugees from Spindletop arrived at BAD RAP August 21, 2012. The dogs have disappeared. BAD RAP refuses to give any information about these two dogs who survived a nightmare only to disappear. As a group which rakes in almost a half million dollars a year in public donation money, this group owes an explanation to the public about these two dogs. Where are they?
