Wolves Under Attack Dear Animals for the Care of Treatment, There is an all out war on our nation's wolves -- and in Michigan, they just took another hit. Last week, in a charade of a vote, the Michigan House passed the unconstitutional "Scientific Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act" -- a misleadingly named bill that will allow a group of seven political appointees to open up a hunting season on wolves or any other protected species in the state without citizens having any say whatsoever....

Dear Animals for the Care of Treatment, We found her with a serious leg injury. When I first saw this little girl, I wanted to give her the biggest hug. We named her Sasha.

The bad news is that her leg will v... Read Full Post »
