Now more than ever, you are needed to donate your old blankets, towels, and sheets to your local animal shelter. With financial cut-backs, repairs on shelters are often put off, so if it's drafty, the animals suffer. I know my shelter uses rags to stuff under doors. No kidding! Empty out those closets... this is your chance to get rid of stuff and do something useful!

Puppy-Mill Puppies Making Their Way to Long Island for Adoption

Dogs rescued from Missouri puppy mills arrive by bus in Chicago, will be flown to Long Island

CHICAGO (AP) — More than 50 dogs rescued from puppy mills in Missouri are flying to Long Island in the hope of finding loving homes.
The dogs were taken by bus Thursday to Chicago, where they were given a rest break and special Thanksgiving meals.
On Friday morning, Pet Airways was scheduled to fly the dogs from Chicago to New York's LaGuardia Airport. They will then be taken to the North Shore Animal League America in Port Washington, N.Y., where they will be put up for adoption.
Missouri launched an aggressive campaign last summer to investigate and prosecute unlicensed dog breeders.
In September, more than 100 dogs were removed from what officials called an unlicensed puppy mill in mid-Missouri where dogs were living in filthy conditions.
