Long-time Animal Shelter operators at the nonprofit Animal Foundation announced plans for going "no kill" by 2020, announcing they plan to adopt the same model long touted by many of the foundation's loudest critics.
Sugar Baby is a Redtick Coonhound WHO NEEDS YOU! She's very sweet girl but she can be a bit timid as loud noises and quick movements do startle her.
Prohibiting slaughterhouse inspections is a start, but more comprehensive equine protection is a necessary finish. Our horses deserve it, and our humanity should demand it.
For years, I have been entering farming facilities in the dead of night, rescuing a small handful of animals. The scale of the violence endured by these animals (like Yulin's dogs) is hard to believe.

A litter of kittens was found dumped in a box on the side of a highway when they were barely two weeks old. With no mother present.

Mikey's owner Hillary tried everything she could think of to save the babies. Watching her cat suffer, Hillary was desperate for help and called Dori's Darlings, a cat rescue organization run by Dori Hillman in Houston.
The rats/mice/birds exclusion intentionally obfuscates the true numbers of animal used in research. And, it lends credence to the claims of animal rights groups that research institutions have something to hide.
Last night while the whole family was gathered together to watch a basketball game we noticed Murphy, our Cocker Spaniel, was acting strangely. I called the vet and described his behavior and she advised me to bring him in to the office. I
Even if you've never heard about a dog fight, that doesn't mean they're not happening nearby. We also can't relax simply because animal fighting is illegal. I've witnessed enough horrific crime scenes to know that animal fights can take place anywhere, and that they represent the absolute worst of human nature.
