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!

The First Jackasses of Spring

via Orlando Sentinel:
Two women face animal-cruelty charges, accused of leaving two dogs inside a hot car in the Altamonte Mall parking lot last weekend.

Bridget Maria Casiano, 42, and Nancy W. Charrez (might be Chavez, still to be confirmed), 47, both of Port St. Lucie, each are accused of two counts of animal cruelty by tormenting, depriving, mutilating or killing animals.

The dogs' temperature was 120 degrees when they were found an hour after being left in the car in 90 degree weather. The two women came out one hour after the dogs were found.  Also, the short-snouted dogs have the hardest time with hot temperatures and respiratory issues (not that it woudl have mattered at 120 degrees). These dogs were pugs.

Either they are complete morons, or did this intentionally. Who could be that dumb?

When an address is found, as is the custom of this blog, it will be posted here. As well as pictures. I hope they get lots of sternly worded letters from the public.
