Dogs In Hot Cars

Leaving a dog (or any animal for that matter) in a parked car during hot weather is not only cruel but can be downright deadly as well.
Even with windows cracked opened - the temperature inside a parked car can raise as much as 40 degrees in as little as 15 minutes.
80 degrees outside can become a staggering 120 degrees inside! Literally baking your animal to death!

In America, so far 14 states have enacted laws that protect dogs in hot cars. But even in places lacking such a law - leaving an animal in a hot car may constitute cruelty.

So please - if you can't take your animal in with you during hot weather - leave them at home. Seriously consider their welfare & not just your own.

Stop Killing Alaskan Wolves!

Right now, your help is needed to end the brutal and unfounded aerial wolf killing programs that have already claimed the lives of more than 1,000 of these magnificent animals.

Easy targets against fallen snow, wolves are gunned down from airplanes or chased to exhaustion, then shot at point-blank range. State-licensed riflemen can target entire packs -- even pregnant wolves!
It’s not wolf management. It’s a wolf massacre.

Defenders of Wildlife has long led the fight to rein in out-of-control aerial wolf killing and promote sound management of wolves in Alaska. They were able to stop this terrible practice twice, only to see it started up again after two years.

The blood is not only on the ground but on the hands of these sick people as well!


What a horrible waste of a beautiful animal!

Saving The Prairie Dogs

Just one of the many animal causes 
I totally support & wanted to share.

Prairie dogs are more than adorable, they are necessary for a healthy prairie ecosystem. Still, every day prairie dogs are poisoned, shot, bulldozed, or victims of exotic diseases.


The reason for this is due to the fact that prairie dogs are considered a pest by the ranchers & farmers. They live in burrows under ground & eat the roots of crops. For years people would actually have a "shooting party" where a group would get together and try to kill as many as they could. They would gather them up in big burlap bags. It has become an event & some sick people even consider it fun!

The Humane Society of the United States' Prairie Dog Coalition and their partners are working to turn things around for this keystone species. Through non-lethal management trainings and wild-to-wild relocations, they are saving the lives of individual animals and restoring the prairie dog ecosystem on protected public lands.

Please mommy - protect me from those ranchers! 

Hold on to me luv

The Rescue

* And actually this particular rescue showcased here was not due to ranchers. This was due to the fact that these prairie dogs made the very bad decision to set up house near a rifle range. So to get them out of harm's way - they are being relocated.

These people are truly heros!
Yea! Safe at last!

Protecting Your Pet

Many of us are so unaware of the dangers certain foods & common household items can be for our beloved furry friends. Please take concern for your pets as you would for your child. For they know no better. It's up to YOU to keep them safe. The excuse - an animal eats it so it must be ok - is total nonsense. A dog might eat it's own poo (that is full of toxins). I don't consider that healthy - do you?!
