Would You Take In Eight Disabled Dogs?

What started out as an amazing story – a pup run over by a motorcycle and left for dead in  Costa Rica, then brought to the US for veterinary care – just got more tearful.

Papillo’s new family already includes SEVEN disabled dogs, including a blind Lab and a Great Dane with intestinal issues.

While the new owners seem capable and rational about what constitutes humane veterinary care, would you consider taking in this many animals with disabilities?

June is Adopt a Cat Month!

Big thanks to Monique Balas at the Oregonian for reminding us that June is Adopt a Cat month!

While summer is kitten season, there are plenty of more mature cats, like 7-year-old Kent above, who need loving, forever homes as much as their youthful colleagues.

That’s why Cat Adoption Team is encouraging potential adopters by having a “name your own adoption fee” day today for all cats over 12 months old.
