  • Fear-Mongering in Maine on Question 1

    According to the polls, the vote on Question 1 in Maine is very close, with reputable polling showing the race a dead heat. The good news is, there appears to be a clear majority of people who want to ban baiting, hounding, and trapping of bears, and once they sort out that a “yes” vote protects the bears, we should prevail. iStock photo But it’s certainly been a challenging campaign, largely because of the underhanded and overreaching tactics of the opponents who have spent nearly $3 million and drawn support from the Safari Club International in Arizona, the U.S. Sportsmen’s…

    Cats arrive full of soul and song. In some cases, they come with personal theme songs. Magdalene‘s is Run the World (Girls). Thimble‘s is Happy Talk. And George‘s is most decidedly Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh.* “Daaaaaaaaaaaaaad?” Make that simply Hello Fadduh. Once he’d laid eyes on the lookalike dad-he’d-never-had, George saw all the kin he craved. Somewhere in time, Sequoia may well have been a real biological fadduh.

    Courtesy spcaLAHalloween is the event that prompts Americans to collectively reflect and debate the issue of animal cruelty, specifically, cruelty to black cats.  This, in itself, may not be a bad thing.  The sad fact is that animal abuse happens year-round, to all types of animals whether in families, as part of organized commercial abuse or as victims or pranks on the street. If it takes the urban legend of legions of Satanists targeting black cats to remind us that animal cruelty exists, then so be it.Halloween is dangerous for all animals.While abusers might feel…

    28 Oct 2014 | 12:42 pm
    With all of the stumbles we’ve heard involving the U.S. Secret Service and breaches of security at the White House in recent months, it was especially big news when Hurricane and Jordan, two K-9 Secret Service dogs, helped distract and neutralize an intruder who jumped the fence there. The two Belgian Malinois got some licks in, but they also took their lumps. The assailant kicked one dog in the face, and he body-slammed and punched the second one. A veterinary examination, fortunately, gave the dogs a relatively clean bill of health, but they certainly had their share of bruises. In the…

    27 Oct 2014 | 1:33 pm
    Today, we announced the release of a new resource for farm workers who witness animal abuse and want to stop it. The HSUS and the United Farm Workers just announced a new tip line for factory farm whistleblowers, in which they can receive a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of farm animal abusers. Our hope is that this hotline (1-888-209-7177) will allow those on the frontlines to report animal cruelty and abuse in order to help stop it. Matt Prescott/The HSUS This new tool is vital for at least three reasons. First, factory farming has become so…
  • Maine State Agency Pushes Ideology, Not Biology, In Quest to Defend Reckless Bear Killing Practices

    We don’t expect everyone to agree with us in our fight to pass Question 1 in Maine to stop the cruel and unsporting practices of bear baiting, hounding and trapping. But we do expect a fair election and a government that respects the will of the people, rather than one that attempts impose its will on the people. The ballot initiative process was established as a constitutional right in half the states to be used precisely when obdurate state lawmakers and a governor’s state agencies failed to heed the will of the people.  It’s a safety valve, and it has driven essential reforms…

  • Plasticity

    Angela
    17 Oct 2014 | 11:36 am
    People, of which I am one, make assumptions about kittens. They say kittens are a blank slate. They say kittens have moldable personalities. People say a lot of things. Katniss (also pictured in thumbnail) takes a brief breather from the nonstop dance party of her life. This one is common: “Kittens are new. Kittens’ personalities are formless and void. We can mold them like Plasticine. They will be what we make them to be.” Ergo, a kitten raised with kisses and bacon is guaranteed to be the lovemuffin of your dreams. If you love him, he will become exactly what you intend.

It’s the 630th anniversary of Jadwiga being crowned King of Poland. It’s the eve of Wear Something Gaudy Day. But, much more than this, it’s National Feral Cat Day. I’m about to pelt you with gratuitous cat photos. But first, permit an etymological aside. The word “feral” can be divisive.

    Notwithstanding the fact that the NFL has been the most hospitable sanctuary for the vulgar and the violent, (animal abuse, domestic violence, bar fights etc.), I am hopeful that some good will come of the latest horror story involving the Raven's Ray Rice.It is not coincidental that violence against the vulnerable allows for multiple targets in the same setting. In other words spousal abuse and animal abuse, abuse of the disabled and elder abuse and so on and so forth. The crime is the same – the opportunity reveals the victims. These are all parts of one deranged whole.As early as the…

  • Dwarfism in Cats: It’s Only Cute ‘til Someone Gets Hurt

    Michele Metych-Wiley

    These pet owners deserve praise: they’re keeping their dwarf cats healthy, using their pets’ fame to raise money for no-kill shelters, and drawing attention to the plight of animals with special needs. But these cats were genetic accidents---no one selected for those genes, and both owners rightfully, helpfully, discourage breeding. But genetically deformed cats can and are being created by unethical breeders who are willing to risk the cats’ health and perhaps drastically shorten their lives in the name of creating designer kittens for members of the public who don’t understand the…

    The opponents of fair bear hunting in Maine are taking outrageous liberties with their misleading campaign rhetoric. One of their constant refrains is that Question 1—which would ban the cruel and unsporting hounding, trapping, and baiting of bears in the last state to allow all three extreme methods—is largely funded by out-of-state groups, including The HSUS and HSLF. Never mind that those groups have tens of thousands of members who are Maine residents, and who want to rid their state of this terrible cruelty. Alamy Voters in Maine will decide the fate of bears next Tuesday. But the…

    Michael Markarian
    23 Oct 2014 | 2:03 pm
    When advocating for the enactment of humane laws, we're sometimes reminded that getting a bill passed by the legislature and signed by the governor means we are “up at halftime going into the locker room.” Before we can have confidence that a new law will have impact, we often have to defend against legal challenges and ensure that it is properly enforced. We rely on all sorts of law enforcement personnel to do this work. But often a key second-half player is the state’s chief law enforcement officer—the attorney general. The HSUS AG Harris stood up for the humane treatment of…

    Whenever we’ve confronted terrible cruelty, there’s always been a fierce effort to defend it. I think of tough fights in Louisiana to ban cockfighting, in California on Prop 2 and extreme confinement, and on bear baying in South Carolina. Seldom do we see unanimous support for reform. There are always opinion leaders who don’t accept the real meaning of animal protection, or others who excuse cruelty or think it’s too much, too fast. That’s certainly the case in Maine, where there is a looming ballot initiative to ban bear baiting, hounding, and trapping. There, some opinion leaders…

    Michael Markarian

    Local and state anti-cruelty statues play a critical role in ensuring the humane treatment of animals in a community. When the right laws are on the books, animals can be removed from potentially dangerous situations, out of the hands of those suspected of abusing and neglecting them. Let’s say, for example, that 20 dogs, seven horses, and 39 chickens are found to be neglected, living and suffering in deplorable conditions on someone’s private property. Then, under a state anti-cruelty ordinance, the animals are seized by law enforcement, and officials proceed to press charges against the…

These tips for responsible feeding practices will go a long way in keeping the peace among human and feline neighbors. Give the cats enough food, but not more than they'll consume within about half an hour. Leftover food may draw pests and complaints, so remove whatever the cats don't eat. Be careful when using disposable plates; once they're empty they can easily blow around as garbage. Reusable bowls need to be cleaned, but they're less…

    Monday, October 27 2014When Idaho Humane Society decided to install acoustic baffling to reduce noises levels in their kennel rooms, they had the great idea to use a different color for each aisle. Since adopters are offered the freedom to bring dogs to the backyard or designated rooms to get acquainted, the color coded aisles help folks remember where the dogs came from when it’s time to head back to the kennels. According to IHS CEO Jeff Rosenthal, DVM, it’s not just visitors who benefit from this neat navigational trick—staff and volunteers find it useful, too. With a number of…

  • Dolphins - The Most Intelligent Animals Alive

    Are you a Swimmer?  Have you ever swum with Dolphins?  I have! Dolphins can swim 25miles per hour.  They're the acrobats and court jesters of the sea.  Mesmerizing to watch, dolphins have been gliding, flipping and dancing into our hearts for centuries. Dolphins communicate with their whistles and burst-pulsed sounds and some can identify themselves using a signature whistle. Dolphins have no sense of smell, so eyesight and hearing are essential for hunt and survival. In addition to excellent eyesight, they can hear frequencies many times more than a human. Dolphins are…

    Seriously, who doesn't love dogs? All they want to do is love you, lick your face, get their tummy scratched, play with toys. A dog will wait for you to walk in the door every night and make you feel welcome and appreciated, they don't care about their own day, as long as they can express their love to you. They come in all kinds of lovable shapes and sizes, with different kinds of ears, tails, and coats! Speaking of coats, wouldn't it be just awesome if you could get dogs on your coats? You can be as warm as a dog, while wearing a dog, at Cozy Hood, we have a bunch of polar fleece jackets…

    Tigers are some of the most amazing creatures on the planet.  Tigers are my favorite animals.  Back in junior high school, I used to wish my parents got me a tiger so I can take him to school with me and he can fight any bullies I had.  I would ride him to school, about 5 blocks away from my house and he would sit outside the classroom by the window.  He would snarl at any kid who tried to bother me as a warning.  He was my everything.  Then I found out this about Tigers…Tigers are the most magnificent of all the cats!  Tigers will go from stretching in…
