Paws up: The Cleveland Co shelter in NC has removed its gas chamber. Paws down: Despite an additional $200,000 allotted for the shelter in the new county budget, the county expects to continue killing healthy/treatable animals. (Thank you Clarice for the link.)
Petty vindictiveness from PETA and the state vet board threaten lifesaving efforts in TX shelters. (Thanks Clarice.)
Anyone know if MSN went into effect today in Macon, GA? I haven’t seen anything in the news about it since it was passed by the city council last year. MSN is a proven failure and has never ended or significantly reduced the killing of shelter pets anywhere it’s been tried. (Thanks Valerie.)
Reader Lisa reports that her organization Hospets, which helps keep pets with hospice patients and senior citizens needing assistance, is halfway to its fundraising goal to build a physical shelter for pets whose owners are temporarily hospitalized. (Thanks Lisa for the link.)
An alligator in FL used a pedestrian crosswalk to cross the street to an adjacent pond. Good gator, no ticket. (Thanks Valerie.)
This small wild cat is totally on to your hidden camera shenanigans. Note: I suggest waiting to watch this vid until you are someplace it won’t matter if you start giggling like a schoolgirl. (Thanks Valerie.)
One thought on “Treats on the Internets”
Cleveland Co. is getting a 200K increase in budget and hopes to see their kill rate drop from 37% to 30%. Apparently, 200K only buys you 7% less death.
PeTA can kiss my backside.
