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!

Another Shelter Ends Gassing

If you read this blog even semi regularly, you know I am on a tear about gassing.

But here is welcome news reported by Pawsitively, a group I know from Facebook that does a lot of dog rescue. Congratulations (and thank you!) goes out to SEAGOVILLE Animal Shelter, for doing the right thing and banning this barbaric practice.

Turns out they work with a group called CRASH, Citizens for Reform of the Animal Shelter, and they report that only one shelter in Texas with a population over 35,000 people, Garland, still gasses to euthanize.

Gassing in neither quick, nor painless, nor humane.
