    Last Mondaythe Washington Department of Revenue (DOR) reversed its recent decision to require animal rescue groups toapply state retail taxes to adoption fees. The rule would also have required the groups to pay the taxes retroactively on past adoptions as well.

    If the rule had not been reversed, Washington rescue groups would have had to come up with tens of thousands of dollars to pay the retail tax for past adoptions and lost a significant portion of their revenue on future...

    URGENT NEED: Please share!

    Hello my name is Tyson. I am a black Lab (used to be black, anyway). Thanks to the woman who rescued me, I now weigh 75 pounds. I dont keep track of my age-its just a number after all- but if I had to guess, Im between 11-12 years old. Those are the basics about me. Please let me tell you my story.

    Tyson is a sweet 12-year-old lab who has had a rough life. Can you give him a home? Image from Old Dog Haven

  • Prosthetics allow quadruple-amputee dog to walk again

    A Rottweiler that lost the lower portion of all his legs due to frostbite has been fitted with prothetic legs that allow him to walk again.

    Brutus suffered from frostbite on all his paws when he was a puppy. His breeder decided to treat Brutus himself and cut off all his paws.

    Side note: This is another example of why you shouldnt buy puppies from backyard breeders. I hope this one was charged with animal cruelty for allowing a puppy to get frostbite and cutting off his paws.

    The truth is catching up to Brett Bennett. Fast.

    As Ive written multiple times, Bennett has cashed in on millions of views of his YouTube by staging confrontations between his Rottweilers (he only has one now) and other dogs in the Seattle area.

    He has also claimed, among other things, that his dogs are service dogs, therapy dogs, or some combination of the two.

    He even tried to sneak into Seattle Childrens Hospital twice by claiming his Rottweilers were therapy dogs when in fact the...

    After watching this video from TalkItUpTV about the rescue and its founders Thayne and Chris Hamilton, Im kicking myself for missing the opportunity to see this amazing rescue.
