Dear Animals for the Care of Treatment, I'm in Mississippi right now for a suspected hoarding case, and I'm seeing dogs who are suffering -- forced to live outside with no water and, in some cases, dying from their conditions. With your emergency gift today, we can continue to respond and to save animals from cruelty. We're finding dogs with fresh, open wounds and limbs that have clearly been broken for a long time. Many of them are terribly dehydrated and completely infested with fleas. ... Read Full Post »

Wildlife and Wildlands in Danger Dear Animals for the Care of Treatment, The U.S. Senate will soon be voting on the dangerous "Sportsmen's Act�??, a radical handout to extreme trophy hunting groups.

Dear Animals for the Care of Treatment, In six months, I've been involved with six puppy mill rescues. This time our Animal Rescue Team was deployed to a property in Tennessee after receiving a call for help from local authorities. Here are just a few of the 101 rescued faces from Sunday's operation.
