A tragic story about a cat in NJ who was severely injured after being tortured by a group of children, saved by other kids, then turned away by every public facility that could have helped him. The cat suffered for 2 days before finally being euthanized by a vet. (Thank you Karen for the link.)
The Young-Williams Animal Center in TN killed more than 100 cats in response to a panleukopenia outbreak. The CEO blames the virus on the pound’s open admission status but doesn’t mention what, if any, measures the facility takes to avoid and minimize exposure. (Thank you Luke for the link.)
An article centered on transporting homeless dogs from the south to the north which fails to mention why that sucks and gets everything else wrong too. (Thanks Valerie for the link.)
The Humane Society of Fremont Co in CO announced it will no longer be paying its board of directors. Hopefully that money will be put into lifesaving efforts. (Thanks Davyd.)
Henry Co AC in GA is somehow quarantining an entire neighborhood for 31 days after several rabid raccoons and foxes were found in the area. (Thanks Valerie.)
Never mind the bird predation hysteria (billions and billions!) from feral cat haters, the US government killed 4 million animals, mostly birds, last year under the guise of eradicating threats from wildlife.
