Twelve lobsters are alive and well and back in the ocean after being found in the back of a car.

There is only one pet store left in the state of Minnesota that sells commercially-bred dogs. Twelve lobsters are alive and well and back in the ocean after being found in the back of a car. A new study falsely claims dog walking increases your risk of getting COVID-19 by 78%. Aurora, CO, is considering repealing its “pit bull” ban after Denver recently did so. The number of communities placing over 90% of animals is increasing. Animal lovers in Ocean View, DE, are urging officials to repeal an inhumane local law that makes it illegal to feed and care for community cats. And Rosenberg, TX, just passed what may be the most progressive community cat law in the nation.

In case you missed it:

The number of communities placing over 90% of the animals is increasing, including:

These shelters and the data nationally prove that animals are NOT dying in pounds because there are too many or too few homes or people don’t want the animals. They are dying because people in those pounds are killing them. Replace those people, implement the No Kill Equation, and we can be a No Kill nation today.

And finally, that is what Rosenberg, TX, did in a big way. A new law passed this week by the City Council requires community cats to either be adopted, transferred to a rescue group, or returned to their habitats instead of killed. It allows community cat caretakers to reclaim an impounded community cat without fee if sterilized or for purposes of placing the cat in a TNR program. It only allows trapping of community cats for sterilization, providing needed veterinary care, adoption, transfer to a rescue group, or reunification with his/her human family. It provides for needed veterinary care for sick or injured cats. And it exempts community cats and their caretakers from any leash law requirements, licensing laws, and pet limit laws. It is perhaps the most progressive community cat law in the nation.
