The beginning of the end of “the blood money contracts between puppy mill owners who abuse animals and L.A. pet retailers.”
Too bad this is happening in a zoo setting, but precedent setting … Elephant Koshik imitates speech with his trainer:
BEST PRACTICES & E-SIGNATURES:
(thanks to the animal rescue network) …For once I don’t feel so tiny in this big world trying to help animals.
I lost my dog a few weeks ago and wa wondering if you could post a picture on you newletter? I’ve handed out flyers and called local vets, animal control, dog walkers. Stll no response yet. I am heart broken and just want her to come home safe and sound. Her name is Jodi. She is a 7 year spade female Parson Russell Terrier. Josi is about 15lbs. She all white with two light tan ears and a really faded tan patch over her left eye. Unfortunately she is not wearing any tags and her microship is not registered. She went missing in Cookstown, ON in the area of 5 sideroad and hwy 89. There is a reward for anyone who finds her. I am desperate to get her home. Jodi went missing on October 15. If you have any suggestions as to what else I can do I am open to trying anything. ThanksStephanie Beatty

ANIMALS IN NEED
Hi, just wanted to spread the word on “Talia”, a Husky in need. She is being boarded in Lucknow, Ontario, (near Kincardine). She has been in the kennel for over a month, the rescue cannot find any suitable fosters for her. She has been taken and returned by fosters that could not cope with her high energy with their own dogs. Without another dog in the house, she is calm and pretty much perfect. Housetrained, gentle, happy, very good dog. She is very happy to be with other dogs, but will play without end, which can be too hectic for some. This is what her petfinder ad should say…but so far has not been changed. This girl is very sweet natured, well adjusted and affectionate. She is a young, highly energetic dog who really needs room to run, but in a controlled environment, (not ever let loose). Rides well in a car. Perfectly house trained. Nice manners. Non destructive, likes toys. In a home without dogs, she is quite calm, with dogs she is a wrestler, but very careful not to hurt another while playing. She loves other dogs and can play/wrestle endlessly. She would be an excellent working dog, fit, strong, and just wants to GO!! Very gentle with people. High prey drive, no small animals. Someone who loves outdoor activities such as running or sled activities would be a good match for Talia. Very nice, sweet dog. Needs a well contained fenced in play/exercise area. Healthy with a beautiful coat. Petite build. She really needs a foster who understands how energetic young Huskies can be, but meanwhile she sits in a kennel 24/7: http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/24186985 email@example.com or call 519-528-3045 after 6 p.m. if you can offer any help – thank you! www.adoptapet.lucknow.on.ca

UPDATES ON RESCUES
What I would like to say is that Snuffles and I are so very proud to know each one of you and we are very thankful to all of you who have sent your love, prayers, support and donations towards her care. She is doing much better and I am hoping to post some pictures next week to all of you so that you can see the improvement in her skin. Her ears and skin are really doing much better and she will have one of her eye surgeries in the near future. Many thanks to you all for all you do to help the dogs. Blessings and Peace, Lisa Taylor, Max’s Dog Sanctuary for Abused, Disabled and Medically Challenged Dogs
RIP Heckman: for those of you who saw the lost dog alert this week in Toronto (and alerted C4P right away – thanks for that!), Heckman sadly, was found to be struck and killed by a car. Poor old boy. SOB of a way to end a life. Our hearts go out to him and his family.
Little Mary: well, home check is done – new mom and dad Sarah and Dustin absolutely love her – she has tons of toys, love, hideouts – and two budgie birds to chirp at her, when she’s on the window ledge (don’t worry, birds are perfectly safe and happy) And so is Mary. She’ll be the queen of the family for the next 20 yrs or so. Amen. She’s celebrating her first birthday this week.
We encourage our American C4P readers to ensure they get out to vote. We’re ALL desperate for a compassionate, fair, and sane world.
