For 10 years, Simca worked protecting the lives of the people of the British Embassy in Baghdad by searching vehicles entering the Embassy for explosives. When her retirement day arrived she wasn’t celebrated, she was locked away in her kennel and only allowed out twice a day for about 15 minutes a time to relieve herself. She had no bedding because she used to chew her blankets through absolute boredom, so the handlers took it away from her. All Simca had was a cold concrete floor until Alex found her. That day, Simca met her savior. More Adorable Photos and Their Full Story

Hey, Did You Know?
We could save the lives of millions of birds a year with better glass in our windows. As reported by Jane J. Lee at National Geographic, an estimated 600 million birds die yearly in window collisions in just the US and Canada. One expert says these collisions kill more birds than oil spills or pesticides do. Lee reports that new solutions are starting to be developed, like glass with patterns that birds can see and avoid, but that don’t disturb the human eye. If those products make their way to the market and catch on, millions of birds could be saved.
Please help our animal population - have your pets spayed or neutered!
