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!

Puppymill Bust in Tennessee, 120 dogs Saved, 5 Die

Get the story at The Tennessean:

"A horrendous situation,'' said Peg Petrelli, the Tennessee liaison for Animal Rescue Corps, which partnered with the Warren County District Attorney's Office to rescue the animals.
...Earlier in March, Petrelli had gone to the alleged puppy mill as a potential buyer after Animal Rescue Corps received a tip from an informant, she said.
"When you save these lives, it doesn't mean anything to the world,'' said Ady Gil, an animal advocate, who donated $25,000 to this operation. "But it means the world to these dogs.''

Thank you to the Warren County Sheriff's Office, Animal Rescue Corps, and to the generous donor,
Ady Gil. Way to go!!
