Whoa!  Have you seen our little video on Facebook of the black lab pups playing?  Too, too cute.  And, while you’re there, take a look at some of the gorgeous flowers and baskets available for our Spring plant sale at PAWS Place. 

Busy, busy.  Great start to this year with 108 dog, cat, puppy, and kitten adoptions just through April.  Remember, every one that leaves makes a space for another sweet baby in need.  We’ve also been working on the summer newsletter, due out around June 1st, with lots of information and some thoughtful discussion. 

Doggie bathrooms in airports??  It seems these have been installed in a number of airports across the U.S.  Pet relief facilities are expected to be installed in all the major airports by August, per a recent federal regulation.  Love it!

What a long way we have come as a nation, over the past 20 years, in recognizing the importance of companion animals in all our lives.  Marketing gurus and businesses have known and utilized this devotion to sell their products for many years.  Governmental entities are learning, even politicians are beginning to get it.

Elephants no more in Ringling Bros. shows, no more orca shows at Sea World, country after country outlawing the use of wild animals for our entertainment.  Step by step we are re-learning to respect and treasure the precious ones who cannot defend or speak for themselves.

We continue our work.  We know what we must do to save more lives.  We need, as always, your help to do it.  Support us in your own way.  There is no donation or gift or thought and expression of your caring that goes unnoticed or unappreciated.  We’ll keep on as long as you do.



Meanwhile, if you see a companion animal in need, in trouble, or suffering, please, please call someone before it’s too late for them.  Call your local animal control office, the police, the Sheriff’s Dept., and let us know, too.  It IS your business if an innocent being who cannot speak for himself needs your help!
