Interview with an Undercover Investigator at Risk Under “Ag Gag” Laws

Multiple states have considered “Ag Gag” bills that criminalize investigators who document animal welfare abuses on factory farms. Iowa and Utah are the latest to approve them. These bills, lobbied for by Big Ag groups, are part of a long line of attempts to blame activists for exposing abuses, rather than hold corporations accountable.

Save Loews Cats! - Alley Cat Allies

The Orlando area Loews  hotels have always been a friend to animals - until recently when a new manager came on the scene.  Now, he wants all of the cats befriended by the hotel over the years to be removed.  If you or someone you know can give a home to a barn cat - please contact Alley Cat Allies at the link below.

Feral cats can make great barn cats.  I have one feral and one "fighter" - see Black Jack below.  Both do great work at my barn.

Last Will and Testament of a Companion Animal

This was shared by a friend:

Before a human dies, they write their last will and testament, give their home and all they have to those they leave behind. If, with my paws, I could do the same, this is what I'd ask......

To a poor and lonely stray, I'd give my happy home. My bowl and cozy bed, soft pillows and all my toys. The lap, which I loved so much, the tender, loving touch. The hand that stroked my fur and sweet voices which called my name. I'd will to the sad, scared shelter dog, the place I had in my human's loving heart of which there seemed to be no bound.

So, when I die, please do not say " I will never have another pet again, for the loss and pain is more than I can stand". Instead, go find an unloved dog. One who's life has held no joy or hope, and give MY place to "her". This is the only thing that I can give... the Love that I left behind.
This is my inheritance... my will and last my testament.....
