    In the news and current events category.. It seems like the heat and the pressure of an extended puppy and kitten season is getting to everyone. Too many animals, too much to do, to little time and nowhere near enough money. Call it what you want, but tensions are high in the animal welfare community right now and its important to keep an eye on the big picture.

    A friend put her finger on part of the problem, when she reminded us all, The road to hell is paved with good intentions. It is. And...

    In May of 2012, I attended Animal Care Expo in Las Vegas and learned about a brand new community outreach program called Pets For Life. At that time, the City of Dallas No Kill task force was wrapping up, having concluded that the way to make Dallas a no kill community was to focus more effort on the community, rather than the shelter. I knew right away Pets For life was what we needed. Its taken nearly two years, but thanks to the wonderful PFL team at HSUS, the generosity of PetSmart...

    On Sunday, I caught an afternoon flight back from Kansas City to DFW. I had just settled into my seat when I looked out my window to see this: Two crates containing live animals puppies no less abandoned in a cargo trailer on the tarmac. The temperature was in the upper 30s it was cold and drizzly. I watched and waited, and eventually someone came along and loaded the puppies into the cargo hold of the aircraft. The minute they were loaded, the puppies began screaming in terror. You know...
