21 dogs waiting in Iraq... waiting for rescue, and new lives. 10 have been saved so far - 11 more still wait. Before these pups can touch down on American soil and see their new homes, our dedicated team of rescue experts must navigate difficult logistics in war torn Iraq. A lot needs to fall into place, often at the last minute. Not everything runs smoothly and details change at the drop of a hat, which can be good or bad. From airline changes to difficulty getting clearance to drive just 5 miles, these pups have been through it all. However nothing can prevent us from getting them home safely for the American patriots who love them. See Photos and Learn More
Sam's Cause: Helping Dog Fighting Victims
Many dogs are forced into dog fighting every day around the world. For most this is the only life they'll ever know, usually succumbing to their injuries and dying. As you may remember, Sam was a bait dog who was saved from the brink of death; he is one of the lucky ones. In honor of him and the support he received, we launched Sam's Cause to help more dogs survive the aftermath of dog fighting. Meet the First Four Grant Recipients
The Not-So-Mini Pig Problem
Intelligent. Clean. Social. Curious. These are all words that can be used to describe a pig. Borrowing from the book "Charlotte's Web" by E.B. White, we can add "terrific, radiant and humble" to the list. "Micro, mini, and teacup" are words that should never be associated with pigs. The trend of people purchasing "micro-pigs" seems to ebb and flow with pop culture. How Can You Help?
Hey, Did You Know?
The basking shark is the second largest fish and can grow up to 30 feet long. Instead of eating fish, they eat plankton and other small organisms. They do this by swimming around with their huge mouth gaping open! They filter the plankton out of the water and into their stomach through gill rakers. They can be found swimming around Cape Cod and other temperate coastal waters.
