Homelessness hurts more than just people and families, it hurts their pets and it hurts society. Homelessness is the obscenity of our time and our shame if we do nothing.



Because most shelters today do not allow pets many homeless elect to remain homeless rather than abandon their companions.

American Humane

DENVER, Oct. 6  -- One-hundred thirty-two years ago this coming Friday (on Oct. 9, 1877), children were often toiling at hard labor in filthy sweatshops instead of going to school, and when they could play, they were forced into the bustling streets or garbage-strewn alleys instead of onto safe playgrounds. Work horses - often beaten mercilessly and nearly starved or dehydrated - were forced to work 20-hour days. "Pet" dogs and cats didn't fare much better, and livestock handli...

Compassionate veterinary hospice part II "Community Chest"

Posted by Taxi dog on Wednesday, September 2, 2009, In : Human-animal bond 

In part I of this series we described the basic format and rational for veterinary hospice in this edition we’ll examine the possible roles that hospice organizations might strive to fulfill within the community.

There are basically two types of hospice, for profit business models and not for profit organizations. This simplest distinction merits some consideration because it is at this basic level that society measures its contract with any group, organization or individual.

Domestic violence and the link to companion animal abuse

 

Instances of domestic abuse though in decline over the past few years have suddenly reemerged in response to the worsening economic landscape. Money problems, joblessness and foreclosures are prime indicators that the pain and desperation of families in crisis will once again raise the specter of violence in American homes.
