Legislation introduced in Ohio would require anyone convicted of animal cruelty to register with the Attorney General’s Office. Hamilton County, NJ, officials are being prosecuted; they killed over 300 animals over a two year period in violation of state law. The Maryland Court of Appeals has given animal lovers a powerful new tool to reform their local pounds. Lincoln County and Polk County are part of the 90% Club, putting North Carolina on the map. As home ownership declines and renting increases, it’s time to make landlord pet restrictions illegal. Red Robin is now offering a delicious plant-based burger to go with those bottomless fries and sodas, an iconic American meal without the cruelty. Nativists in Australia are citing PETA — which has long argued against TNR — in their support of the government’s decision to kill 2,000,000 “feral” cats as PETA . In fact, PETA itself is using donations sent to them to save animals to instead round-up healthy kittens to be killed. Among the dead are eight week old kittens, 11 week old kittens, 13 week old kittens, six month old kittens, seven month old kittens, eight month old kittens, and 1 year old juveniles.

In case you missed it:

And speaking of PETA, according to records obtained under the Public Records Act, the vast majority of kittens rounded up by PETA employees in 2018 and delivered to the Norfolk, VA, pound — nearly seven out of 10 killed — were killed in less than 60 seconds of being impounded, with no effort to foster them or find them homes. Among the dead are eight week old kittens, 11 week old kittens, 13 week old kittens, six month old kittens, seven month old kittens, eight month old kittens, and 1 year old juveniles. Some of the cats killed were pregnant, resulting in the deaths of the kittens in utero from anoxia (oxygen deprivation) once the mothers were killed. They suffocated. Since none of these kittens were counted in statistics, the death toll is even higher.
