Where Do Donations Go?

Hey, have you seen our commercial on television? You know, the one that shows the dog with super sad eyes looking directly at the camera from behind the cold metal caging and the sad song from that famous singer...

Monday, April 20, 2015
My annual “poisonous foods and plants” column is way overdue, by almost two years. I see that the last time I wrote about this, I mentioned that Murray, my four-legged companion, had eaten part of a dirty diaper!  I know -- lovely! ...

Cat Intros
Monday, April 13, 2015

Rabbit Event
Monday, April 06, 2015

Escape Artists
Monday, February 23, 2015
My wife came home the other day to find our dog, Murray, sitting in the driveway!  First, it was a rare day that he wasn’t with me at work.  He had the day “off” and spent part of it in the yard. She quickly saw that he ...
