    Runners helping shelter dogs in Austin Tx. Seems like a great idea. People looking for running/walking companions take a shelter dog with them. Good exercise for both and visibility for the dogs.

    Would any of the shelter directors you know go to such lengths to save a cat?
    She was unable to actually rescue the cat, but it was later rescued by its owners, members of the irresponsible public …

    The irresponsible public at work:

    For those who can’t access a Facebook link, a bag of mixed small coins – it comes to about $20 – was donated today to the Sonoma Humane Soc. by a homeless woman. All she’s got, pretty much, is her dog, and yet – and yet.

    North Carolinians can now report animals experiencing physical harm under the care of an individual, pet shop, kennel or animal shelter to the North Carolina Attorney General’s Animal Welfare Hotline.

    Just because he has a pet black bear that he bought at five weeks old doesn’t make him a bad person. Or that he’s a puppy miller. Or that his wife performed puppy neuters herself without anesthesia. Or that they own a pet shop which is a front for their puppy milling business. Or… oh, never mind, they’re bad people.

    Owner of a dog boarding facility allows seven dogs to attack another dog. She then denies medical care to said dog for hours. By the time she allows transport to an emergency vet it is too late for them to save him.

    She then launches a coverup that includes lying to a pet crematorium (claiming to be the owner) and never notifying the owners that their dog died, much less how. She also refuses to allow the owners to pick up their dog’s ashes. That would have clued the people there into the fact she was not the owner and they would have likely told the owners what condition their dog was in when she brought him in.

    There are several different versions of what happened floating around Facebook at the moment. But that is solely because the owner of the facility has told many lies about what happened when. Even now no one is sure the full truth is known.
