I have devoted a great part of my life to a cause dear to my heart --the plight of shelter dogs. Our 4-legged companions are almost universally loved, but most people have no idea of the perils that these animals face. Even fewer people are prepared to do something about it. I have donated blood, sweat and tears to making some small impact on the lives of our furry friends. It is a labour of love!

Announcing the inclusion of the animal welfare clause on December 1, 2013, Cairo animal advocate Dina Zulfikar forwarded two different translations of Article 45 from the Arabi...read more

According to my last few interactions with rescue organizations, I can only conclude that the euthanasia of innocent animals and the horror of mass breeding operations aren't all that bad. One shelter refused to adopt to a retired couple because the couple said if they could find a Springer Spaniel who was trainable they would like to use her for hunting. The shelter didn't believe in using dogs f...read more

Here's how Craigslist hurts animals! Craigslist and classified ads are favorite resources of serial animal abusers, dog fighting rings, hoarders, laboratories, and a variety of inappropriate people. Some of the ...READ MORE ABOUT WHY WE ARE BOYCOTTING CRAIGSLIST

A second lawsuit has been filed in Torrent County against the Fort Worth veterinarian who kept several pets alive for experimentation purposes after their owners had asked for them to be euthanized and thought that they were dead.

Dr. Lou Tierce is now faced with two million dollar lawsuits for his alleged unethical actions. The circumstances alleged in the second case are similar to the first. Kimberly Davis had taken her 12 year old Chihuahua, Hercules, to Dr. Tierce for a second opinion in 2013. Hercules had been having difficulty walking, and was diagnosed with hydrocephalus, an accumulation of fluid on the brain. Davis left Hercules at Tierce's Camp Bowie clinic for what the veterinarian called experimental treatment, hoping to save her dog's life. During the following tw...read more

There have been three recent major developments regarding the ongoing investigation of Chicken Jerky Treats made in China, including FDA updates, retailer news, and a settlement agreement from Nestle Purina.

The FDA updated their website with additional information, including updated statistics about the victims: 5,600 dogs sickened? 1,000 dogs have died? 24 cats and 3 people have all become sick from chicken jerky treats. Approximately 1,800 cases have been reported in just the past 6 months. Big box retailers Petco and PetSmart have both announced that they will no longer sell pet treats made in China. Petco is making this policy effective by the end of the year, but PetSmart will not make the change until March of 2015 probably due to contractual obligations. The lawsuit consumers brought against Nestle Purina was settled on May 30. From early on, pet advocates have been...read more

Desperate Dogs, a self-published manual for rehabilitating shelter dogs, arrived for review with impressive endorsements. Testified Frank Andrews, executive director of the Humane Society of St. Lucie, Florida, 'In my 50 years of animal welfare work, I have never read a more useful 'bible' for all of us who want to give more dogs a second chance.' Andrews, formerly director of animal control in Los Angeles County for more than a decade, in 2012 succeeded the now retired Warren Cox as longest tenured professional in the field. But much of Desperate Dogs resembles the 'Prussian school' training advice dispensed when Andrews and Cox were young. 'If you think you have to beat a dog and jerk the dog around to make the dog safe,' Cox responded, and reiterates today, 'then you shouldn't have the dog.'

On April 9, 2014 a major victory was celebrated in Cook County. An ordinance was UNANIMOUSLY passed to end the sale of retail cats and dogs in pet stores. Pet stores would only be allowed to sell dogs and cats from rescues and shelters.

Sadly, less than 2 months later, three Commissioners are trying to reverse the ban.

The Puppy Mill Project, the leader in the fight against pet stores selling mill dogs, is begging for Chicago residents to contact their commissioners and express their support for the original ban.

Spearheading the amendment is Commissioner, Joan Patricia Murphy. She recently spoke out on WGN 720 radio in an interview with Steve Dale. Murphy states that one of the very reasons that she is now opposing the ordinance is that it didn't follow proper legislative procedure. She also states that the pet store ban will put store...read more
