In the world of rescue, it is like a battlefield between rescue groups and Animal Control. It’s a pretty simple battlefield: rescue groups want to save a life from being ended at a kill shelter. In the eyes of a rescue group, Animal Control kills perfectly healthy animals with just a few days to make it out of kill shelters. But people keep dumping their pets at high-kill shelters knowing they may die within three to seven days once they have been left there. From our perspective, we see the staff as heartless humans who take a life of a healthy animal. So, speaking of Animal Control in a positive manner is uncommon in the world of rescue.

Mell’s Mutts: Petunia

About a month ago, we were told of a little bulldog sitting alone in a back room at our local city shelter. She was in the kennel all alone, possibly blind and hours away from being euthanized. See this sweet girl had such a bad infection in her eyes that we weren’t even sure she had eyeballs! Somehow she ended up at the shelter and was never claimed and was too sick to be placed for adoption, so she sat quietly waiting for her time to end.

Fresno Bully Rescue: Karma

Let’s talk about the pros and cons of adopting a senior versus a younger dog or puppy. Everybody loves puppies, I get it. I love puppies, you love puppies, your best friend just got a new puppy, and you’re beside yourself with jealousy. It makes sense the default choice when adopting a new dog is to go for the younger pup, however, you may be surprised by how rewarding it can be to adopt an adult dog, a senior dog to be exact.

Dogs can bring a lot of good to the community; therefore, it is our duty to build a society that embraces dogs and recognizes their essential role in our lives. When dogs are present, the people and the community thrive. When you take your Frenchie puppies out on a walk, people will stop you just to pet them. Dogs have been shown to bring a positive impact in communities; therefore, it is the duty of the community members to make it good for dog owners if they want to thrive. Here are some ways to do so.

As a volunteer with Rattie Ratz Rescue, a non-profit pet rat rescue located in the Bay Area of Northern California, I have witnessed first-hand the affects Covid has had on the running of a rescue. Of course, as soon as Covid became publicly known, keeping the volunteers and animals safe was the Board’s primary concern. All public events were canceled as soon as the shelter in place was ordered back in March 2020, and they will remain cancelled for some time to come.

The pets in Deborah’s Sarah Blair series share their thoughts on the books.
RahRah: Cats rule the world of cozy mysteries – especially if they are Siamese cats like me.
Fluffy: You know I don’t usually disagree with you, but dogs have a place in cozy mysteries, too.

Little Aunt Peggy, as the Col. Potter folks named her, was in rough shape when she came into the Cairn rescue. She had a severe ear infection, bad skin, and she walked with a head tilt. As her foster Susan said, “She walked like a drunken sailor.”
