We’ve been hearing a lot about the International Whaling Commission meeting that’s due to start on the 21st of June (Monday). Whales are facing the worst crisis since before the commercial whaling ban went into effect more than 25 years ago.
We’ve gotten several notes from the HSUS and other animal welfare groups so we though we’d publish our favorite one today. The following letter, via the HSUS, is the publicly offered personal message from Pierce Brosnan, who’s been working to protect whales for years. While you might know him best as the newest Bond, James Bond . . . we’ve all loved him since the Remington Steele days. So it was easy to pick our favorite “Save The Whales” appeal to share.
Here at PETSblogs we love music nearly as much as we love animals. If you’ve ever seen the Sarah McLachlan video for the ASPCA and been moved to tears (or having to turn the channel because you just can’t take seeing any more of the instances of animal cruelty it shows) you know what we mean. It’s a good thing when celebrities can use their fame and fortune to help promote animal rights and place the issue in the spotlight.
We recently discovered Malea McGuinness, a pop/rock singer-songwriter who’s been an extremely active animal rights advocate and we wanted to introduce other pet-lovers to her music and her mission!

When you have pets, you need to take care of them by giving them love, attention, medical care and of course making sure that they are fed. Unfortunately, some people can’t seem to understand how important this responsibility really is. In tonight’s episode, the Rescue Ink team takes on some pretty “Desperate Dogs” and their owners to make sure the pets are well taken care of.
Six genetically identical puppies began work for South Korea’s customs agency, sniffing out drugs. They all share the same name, TOPPY (tomorrow & puppy combined) because they were all cloned from the same superb sniffer dog named Chase (a Labrador Retriever in Canada).
The dogs went through an 16-month training program and are now hard at work sniffing out drugs at Seoul’s Incheon International airport and at border
In the United States alone, as many as ten million animals enter shelters each year and millions must be euthanized due to lack of space.

Whitworth, Acting United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Nevada company and its owners pleaded guilty in federal court today to distributing a tainted ingredient used to make pet food, which resulted in a nationwide recall of pet food and the death and serious illness of countless pets
One of the pets blogs I frequent, Gandalf and Grayson, posted a story about Blackie and Little Jim today that makes my heart sick. It makes my stomach turn so much so that I nearly couldn’t read the original story in the Valdosta Daily Times.
There were 3 cats in the story, one of which had to be euthanized and two of which are alive but have
