ON TONIGHTS EUTH LIST
TO BE DESTROYED - 10/01/14
Brooklyn Center - New York
Ruff ruff, my name is Lola. My Animal ID # is A1014670.
I am a spayed female tricolor pit bull mix. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years old.
I came in the shelter as an owner surrender on 09/20/2014 from NY 11413, owner surrender reason stated was “No Time”.
You can call (212) 788-4000 for automated instructions.
You don’t get it. I barely understood it. I crave the kind of partner that will tell me when I’m wrong. Someone who will take the time to say to me ‘This is going to be a sucky conversation because it’s going to be uncomfortable but if I don’t tell you, I can’t be certain anyone will and I want you to grow continuously into a superb human being.’ Do you get it? Don’t you want someone who wants you to keep growing?

NEW VEGAN SUMMER CAMP set for summer 2015 announced by the AMAZING Teen Vgn!

Too old? Not to worry! Teen Vgn are looking for people over the age of 16- like myself- to volunteer and help organise the activities. If you’re interesting in becoming a volunteer, email email@example.com for details.
If enough people join, the’ll be running an adult summer camp the following year!!!
Have fun everyone and I hope to see you there. :D
Is there something like this for the us? I would love to teach vegan cooking to kids and something like a week long camp would be awesome because i can’t commit myself to much longer then that.
albertthedogo said: The fact that you get so many comments about your dogs just seems crazy to me! I've never experienced anything like it despite have several big dogs, one of whom genuinely was dog aggressive. Do you think it is just a product of where you live? Or have I just been lucky?
It is honestly crazy. I really couldn’t give you an answer, today I think it was just the girl putting on a show for her friend, but other than that, it must be my area? People are genuinely scared of him when they first meet him. He doesn’t give off negative body language either, he’s all smiles, tail wags and happy huffs, but people still fear him. :(
It happens in the States 2. I have realized its usually people who are not ‘dog people’ - almost every time someone has avoided Summer or made a comment they have approached Kaos wrong (running up to him, letting their dog jump on him, etc.)
In regards to the panic that will inevitably spread in re the first case of ebola in the United States, watch this health care triage video. (Also discussed: the panic of enterovirus, which is the virus that caused my meningitis.)
As Dr. Amesh Adalja put it, ““Ebola outbreaks are stopped in their tracks when basic public health measures are in place … and the United States would not be a hospitable environment for something that spreads exclusively through blood and body fluids.”
Ebola IS a huge, growing public health problem in several nations in west Africa. Because it has hit health care workers particularly hard, there are fewer health workers and resources available in already poorly equipped nations. That’s a disaster not only because of ebola but also because it means fewer vaccinated children and more deaths from preventable illnesses like malaria and diarrhea. Panicking over ebola in the United States distracts from the real problem, which is the thousands of needless deaths in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea.
JUST A WEEK AWAY FROM THE SEASON PREMIERE!
Animal Planet will be airing Pit Bulls and Parolees: Off the Leash Saturday at 10/9c, which recaps last season and gives viewers a SNEAK PEEK of season 6!
DON’T MISS IT!
Factory farming, the crowding together of livestock in factory-like conditions to cut down on production costs, is widely deplored for its harm to animals, workers, the environment and food consumers. It is hard to find a farm that crowds animals together in pens and cages that doesn’t also rely on antibiotics and growth chemicals, mistreat workers, spew manure into the environment and generate periodic safety questions about its products.
