Pet Hurricane Safety

There is no bigger story this week than Hurricane Irene. I had my own experience with it last weekend as my daughter is in the Dominican. Fortunately, they were spared the full force of this powerful storm. I am sending prayers and best wishes to my fellow pet bloggers who are in the path of the hurricane.  Here is a link to Life with Cats' post on resources for pet safety during the storm

No Kill Success Story

I love these stories. This one appeared on Yahoo! today. Buddy, who had been frightened by a loud noise, jumped out a 3rd story window landing on concrete and broke both of his legs.  The owner couldn't afford the medical costs so they surrendered the dog to the SPCA who could then fundraise to pay for the dog's surgeries, saving his life. Full story here.

The man in the photo was Buddy's foster dad during the recovery and is now officially his pet parent.  Wonderful!
