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!

Increased Penalties For Dog Fighting In California
Other tightened penalties apply to dogfighting. A law written by Assemblyman Pedro Nava, a Santa Barbara Democrat and candidate for attorney general, doubles the maximum jail term — to one year — and quintuples the top fine — to $5,000 — for anyone convicted of watching a fight.

For those who own the dogs, a law by Sen. Ron Calderon, D-Montebello, authorizes the seizure of property and profits related to the fights

I got this info via Our Pack, Inc. (  out in San Francisco, who took in Stella during the Missouri dog fighting raid. She is the redish pit bull laying her head on two others dogs.
