Delta Air Lines will not allow dogs deemed “pit bulls” as service animals, defying the U.S. Dept of Transportation. Best Friends, Michigan Pet Fund Alliance, and others are putting animals at risk when they declare No Kill before it has actually been achieved. After over 400 days at a shelter, a dog named Queen has been adopted, so why does PETA think she would have been better off dead? Disneyland announces that they are adding a plant-based menu to every single one of their restaurants. Pitkin, Routt, Eagle, San Miguel, and Ouray County, CO, place over 93% and as high as 100% of the animals. And technology promises to end the era of dogs (and children) dying in cars due to excessive temperatures.

In case you missed it:

And finally, Tesla’s Dog Mode allows you to control the internal temperature of your car to keep your dog comfortable and safe. Eventually all automakers will embrace Dog Mode, first as an option, and then with generational change at government agencies like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, as a mandatory standard. But there is more that can be done. The Hot Cars Act of 2019 would require all automakers to install technology that can detect when a dog (or child) has been left in the backseat and sound an alarm both inside and outside the car. Combined, Dog Mode and Hot Car alerts would end the era of dogs (and children) dying in cars due to excessive temperatures.
