When is a Rescue Not a Rescue?

No one wants to buy from a puppy mill. But did you know that you could be even if you adopt?

That’s right! The Don’t Shop, Adoptcampaign has been so successful that some puppy mills are getting sneaky and setting up their own “rescues.”

What? Are you kidding me? What? Are you kidding me?

Oh, they look good.

They hold adoption events. They contract with a vet to provide care for the animals. Some even have 501(3)(c) status.

But all they’re really doing is “adopting” out the older puppies that weren’t sold. They’re not lying when they say the animals were removed from a puppy mill. They just don’t tell you THEY run the puppy mill.

Other so-called rescues are run by brokers who buy the puppies from the breeders, then turn around and “adopt” them out.

And they’re not just “adopting” out animals at the same rates they would have sold them for, they’re…

Strange But True: Finnish Reindeer Glow at Night to Prevent Accidents: PetMd

HELSINKI  – Glowing reindeer can be spotted in northern Finland thanks to a reflective spray which makes them more visible in a bid to prevent car accidents, Finnish reindeer breeders said Tuesday.

 

“We are hoping that it is so useful that we can use the spray in the entire region and on all reindeer, from young to old,” said Anne Ollila, head of Finland’s Reindeer Herders’ Association.

 

The association has started testing two reflective sprays on the animals’ antlers so they are more visible to motorists at night.

 

According to Ollila, there are between 3,000 and 5,000 accidents involving reindeer every year, which are “much deadlier for the reindeer than for the drivers.”

 

The trial period started last week, when the association sprayed the antlers of 20 reindeer in the Rovaniemi district, the capital of the Lapland region.

 

The animals were sprayed with two different types of reflective liquid: a more permanent one for the antlers and one that washes away for the fur.

 

If the test gives positive results, the association plans to spray more animals next autumn.

 

Lapland, one of Europe’s most sparsely populated regions, attracts thousands of tourists especially around Christmas as it claims to be the “home of Santa Claus”.

South Carolina House Bill S.193 (Animal Cruelty)

Attention S.C. Animal Lovers!! I am asking you to contact your local Legislators and request them to amend a current bill in The House. (BILL S.193) Request that they introduce an #Animal Abuse Registry (modeled after child abuse registry) for those convicted of animal cruelty. The National Humane Education Society has an article on other States leaning towards this animal abuse registry. Our State currently ranks 46th in the Nation (2013 State Rankings for Animal Protection Laws/US Humane Society). **You can find your local representatives by clicking on the link below, then click on “Find Your Legislators” in the blue tab on the left**
Lets Continue Our Fight For Animal Welfare!!
