animal news

It's October.....Adopt-A-Shelter Dog Month! If you're considering a dog as a new companion, please won't you adopt from a shelter rather than purchasing from a breeder or a pet store? Shelter dogs are more in need than ever, with many now being abandoned there because of foreclosures and economic reasons. Please, rescue a dog from death row.

In other animal news.....a true "march of the penguins"!.....hundreds of stranded penguins were recently rescued in Brazil, and were rehabilitated and then returned home via an Air Force jet! Here's the amazing story of what the rescue team from the International Fund for Animal Welfare did for those lucky penguins.
