Fort Bend County, TX, is violating the First Amendment rights of animal shelter volunteers. A second horse has died at Santa Anita in just one week. Over 1,000,000 animals have been saved by a California law mandating rescue. A study finds that living with dogs reduces your risk of death from all causes. Two cats who were thrown from a car are being threatened with more violence by the agency that is supposed to protect them from it. Three new communities join the 90% Club. Other communities are seeking new leadership to do the same. And legislation to ban housing discrimination for people who live with animal companions is on the horizon.

In case you missed it:

And finally, about 20% of relinquishment to shelters involves housing issues and the problem is getting worse. People should not have to choose between losing a family member or losing their home. Thankfully, there is a solution. New legislation to ban housing discrimination for people who live with an animal companion will soon be introduced in a Northeast state. If passed, it will be the first in the nation to extend existing protections for kids to pets.
