Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

Starving, ‘Lifeless’ Dog Dumped Over Shelter Fence – Be Vigilant My Friends

Starving, ‘Lifeless’ Dog Dumped Over Shelter Fence

Shelter workers at a Mississippi rescue were leaving for the day and almost didn’t notice a small creature huddled up in a tarp outside the facility.

They moved closer and realized they were looking at a dog. Poor little “Flounder” had been cruelly thrown over the fence and abandoned! He was almost completely hairless and so malnourished he resembled a walking skeleton.

Helpless animals who have been senselessly abused and neglected deserve better. That’s why American Humane Association’s Second Chance® Fund program is here — to make sure they receive the medical treatment they desperately need to start a new life.

Won’t you please donate today to support this vital program, enabling us to help more animals like Flounder?

Flounder Is Now Flourishing!

If you saw Flounder today, you would never suspect what he’d been through. It’s not just that he has a full and lustrous coat, and is a healthy weight. It’s the look in his eyes, which are no longer lifeless and dull, but instead filled with curiosity and joy.

This incredible change happened because caring donors like you took action. American Humane Association was able to provide a Second Chance grant to the Mississippi shelter where Flounder was abandoned, helping the shelter cover the cost of his veterinary care.

Flounder has since been adopted into a new, loving home, where his happiness and newfound zest for life shine through every day!
Flounder proves that homeless pets are far from hopeless. But he’s not alone; thousands of abused and neglected animals need assistance. Please help us help them by donating now to our Second Chance Fund!

Please Support a National Pet/Animal Abuse Registry and Tougher Animal Abuse Laws:

Pet Abuse Registry Started in NY by Suffolk County SPCA… An Idea That is Waaaay Overdue and Needed Everywhere!  So Let’s Do It!!

Tough New Law to treat animal offenders like sex offenders…  Does it go to far… Heck NO!!

It has been proven that child molesters, serial killers, wife beaters, and deviates of all kinds often started as animal abusers or do both through their lives.  It is our job to stop all these types of abuse… and why is abuse of a helpless animal of less importance than child or spousal abuse?  elder abuse?  Or any type of abuse?

Animal abusers of New York’s Suffolk County on Long Island will now go to jail and on a registry for which they will have to pay $50 to maintain the program

The abusers will be registered and their information will be listed online and on lists for rescues, pet stores, and all animal type programs who will be required to check these before selling any pet.  Abusers can also do jail time, public service time and pay larger fees as part of the the program.

Checkout SuffolkSPCA.org

The new program is sparking National Interest!!

Time to create a National registry and database to help abused animals and often their human counterparts that their abusers encounter.

An idea that is waaaaay overdue and Needed everywhere… Let’s do it.  Let’s take it National!!

Heed these tips for keeping pets safe during Halloween

Heed these tips for keeping pets safe during Halloween

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Pet owners realize the Fourth of July, with its loud, frightening fireworks, can be a problem for their furry family members, but Kern County Animal Control is reminding folks that Halloween can also pose many dangers.

"Our pets rely on a daily routine. When that routine is disrupted by lots of noise and commotion they can become frightened or agitated. By following these simple tips, parents, children and pets can enjoy a safe and happy Halloween," said Maggie Kalar, marketing and promotions associate for Kern County Animal Control, in a news release.

Officials provided these tips Wednesday for keeping pets healthy and safe this Halloween:

  • Generally, keep pets at home when trick-or-treating
  • Keep pets safely inside, away from trick-or-treaters and other Halloween activities; they can become frightened or feel threatened at the sight of noisy, costumed children, and run off into the night
  • Keep pets safe in an enclosed area with a toy and some soothing music
  • Always make sure your pet has proper identification. If they become lost, a collar and tags and/or microchip increase the chances that they will be found and returned to you
  • Do not let your pet eat candy. Candy can be harmful to pets, and chocolate can be fatal to cats and dogs
  • Keep foil and candy wrappers away from pets, as these can cause vomiting and could even produce intestinal blockage
  • Don’t put your dog or cat in a costume unless you know he or she loves it. For pets that are dressed up, make sure the costume isn’t annoying or unsafe. It should not constrict the animal’s movement, vision or hearing or impede the ability to breathe or bark. Look out for small, dangling, or easily chewed-off pieces on the costume that a pet can choke on
  • Never offer or allow your pets to consume alcoholic beverages. Keep drinks out of a pet’s reach. If ingested, the animal could become very ill and weak and may go into a coma, possibly resulting in death from respiratory failure
  • Keep pets away from decorations, such as pumpkins and decorative corn. Although considered relatively non-toxic, these items can cause gastrointestinal upset and may even result in intestinal blockage as well if large pieces are ingested
  • Jack-o-lanterns and candles can quickly singe, burn or set fire to a pet’s fur. Pets can easily knock a lit pumpkin over and cause a fire
  • Keep wires and cords from electric lights and other decorations out of reach of pets. If chewed, pets can experience damage to their mouth from shards of glass or plastic or receive a possibly life-threatening electrical shock.

RIP: Paul, The Psychic Octopus

by JAMES FURBUSH on OCTOBER 26, 2010 · COMMENT

Terrible news coming out of Germany this morning.

Death’s inescapable tentacles have curled themselves around Paul the octopus, the cephalopod sage who won worldwide fame over the summer by correctly predicting the results of a host of World Cup matches.

Paul the ‘psychic’ octopus predicted the winners of all Germany’s World Cup clashes, and then the victors in the final, by selecting one of two boxes, each loaded with a mussel food treat and marked on the outside with one of the teams.

Stefan Porwoll, the manager of the Oberhausen Sea Life Centre in Germany that the tentacled psychic called home, said Paul appeared to have died peacefully of natural causes during the night.

He was 2 1/2 years old. No word on if he predicted his own death.  But. There’s always a but.  His last prediction was that England would host the World Cup in 2018.  Paul’s definitely won his place in the animal hall of fame.
