At 1.1 million people in its jurisdiction, the Fairfax County Animal Shelter is one of the largest communities in the nation in the 90% Club, an important milestone on the road to No Kill. This piggy boy is available for adoption there.

In case you missed it:

And finally, the animals lost a great friend and champion. Orly Degani, who used her considerable legal skills to fight for the rights of animals, died Monday, Feb. 4. Her many victories for animals included a California Supreme Court decision that upheld the ban on the sale of shoes made from kangaroos; successfully defending the City of West Hollywood in its ban on the declawing of cats; and, bringing the first Sec. 1983 lawsuit to protect the first amendment rights of rescuers and volunteers. In addition to being an avid rescuer and ethical vegan, she was also my friend. She was deeply loved and will be sorely missed.
