Rules are Made to be Broken

Wednesday, 26 March 2014 12:33 by Life's Abundance

There's one rule in this house ... the dog is not allowed on the bed. What the pet parents couldn't figure out was, why was there so much dog hair on the bed every time they came home from work. So, clever people that they are, they set up a video camera to find out.

You can probably guess what comes next ... but not how much fun the pup has when breaking the rules.

Foundation Award to Paws South Florida Rescue

Thursday, 16 January 2014 14:02 by Life's Abundance

Starting an animal rescue is a much bigger endeavor than most people think. Some groups lack the resources to make it through the first year of service. This is why, when a small, tight-knit group of people unite to not only create a functional rescue, but also demonstrate a willingness to tackle big problems, you know you have something special.

Beagle Finagles Her Way to Oven-Baked Goodies

Wednesday, 15 January 2014 06:39 by Life's Abundance

Lucy the beagle definitely knows her way around the kitchen.

This clever pup exhibits serious skill at claiming her next meal (apparently, a batch of chicken nuggets). Not content to move furniture at-will in order to leap up on kitchen countertops, she’s also proficient at removing pans from the toaster oven.

You’ll be amazed by how this dexterous pup pulls a reverse dine-and-dash, using her noodle to get the nuggets. We caution our canine viewers … do not try this at home. Oven, hot!

Lucy is the pet kid of Rodd Scheinerman, who originally uploaded the video last July. According to the proud pet parent’s YouTube comments, he wondered why paw prints kept appearing on the countertops. With a little detective work, he certainly got his answer!

NM Rescue Rewarded for Good Karma

Friday, 20 December 2013 07:33 by Life's Abundance

Beaumont
‘Beaumont (a.k.a. Beau) flourishing under
CARMA’s excellent care.’

This month’s featured grant recipient is Companion Animal Rescue & Medical Assistance Inc. (CARMA), a non-profit organization doing its utmost to alter the destiny of dogs and cats abandoned in New Mexico.

Just over a decade ago, many of the unwanted animals in the rural Albuquerque suburb of Village of Corrales faced almost certain euthanasia. Fortunately, this group of supremely dedicated volunteers came together in 1999, determined to make a big difference in the way abandoned animals are treated. Their efforts have been rewarded, effecting a much broader change, saving innumerable lives every year. More...

Smiles All Around for GRIN’s Work

Missy

Even though the U.S. has seen a dramatic reduction in the annual number of dogs and cats euthanized – rates are one-quarter to one-fifth of those in decades past – an estimated 2.7 million still fail to be adopted every year. Given that 25-40% of rescue dogs are purebred, the need for specific-breed advocacy is vital. Championing the merits of a particular breed not only helps the breed in question, it also boosts the perception of all breeds. This month’s featured grant recipient has made significant inroads towards fighting canine homelessness through their tireless advocacy on behalf of Golden Retrievers. More...

Emergency Food Donation to CO Flood Victims

Monday, 30 September 2013 15:23 by Life's Abundance

Small and medium-size rescues are the primary beneficiaries of the grants awarded by the Dr. Jane’s HealthyPetNet Foundation. However, in times of crisis, they also bestow emergency donations of food and financial support to casualties of disaster. Thus far, victims of hurricanes, tornados and fires have all received funding and/or food donations from our non-profit. We can now add flood victims to the list of recipients who’ve benefitted from the foundation’s generosity.

In this special video report, Dr. Sarah serves as our ‘boots on the watery ground’ in flood-ravaged Colorado. Our Staff Veterinarian reveals what our non-profit has done to help alleviate the suffering of pet parents who’ve lost their homes and most, if not all, of their possessions.

As you’ll see, whole neighborhoods have been submerged or wiped off the map by the deluge, putting countless companion animals at-risk. Even now, weeks after the initial torrential rains and widescale flooding, rescue crews continue to search for missing people, dogs and cats.

Fortunately, amidst the chaos of indiscriminate destruction, Colorado residents have also been inundated with kindness from all corners of the country. Life-saving and sustaining aid pours in, including that from the Dr. Jane’s HealthyPetNet Foundation.

We also encourage you to watch last month’s episode of Pet Talk, ‘Disaster Prep’, which details the steps that pet mamas and papas can take now to be ready should disaster ever strike in your neighborhood.

Located in Los Angeles County, FastFriends Greyhound Adoption of California maintains a wide foster-home network. When it comes to their rescue, FastFriends has a one-track mind - to help transition greyhounds from racing careers to lives of companionship with adoptive families. More...
