    Re: Beware of Pet Treats Made in China

    I don't have a dog, so I'm pretty ignorant on China and the dog food industry. What is China doing to their dog food and treat products to kill pets?

    Re: October is Pit Bull Awareness Month!

    I know that, at least in the UK, it is the American Pit Bull Terrier (among a few other breeds) that are banned. In America, the legal definition of a 'pit bull' is an American Pit Bull Terrier,...

    It seems this questionnaire isn't meant for US citizens so I'll skip this one. I think I may skew the statistics anyways; I work at a shelter, so I take home many fosters but I don't donate cash,...

    Re: Stray kittens

    Probably not all for free. You could see if a TNR place will fix them and give them shots, but to do that they usually only want feral cats, not adoptable kittens. They will also cut the corner of...

  13. Re: What's your opinion about Dogs and Rats as friends?

    It's possible and not unheard of. It would be harder with ratting breeds, of course. If you can get your dog and rat to make friends, then that's awesome! As for the general public, I think most...

    Re: What animal is this?

    Looks like that to me! It's funny, I rarely hear one of those chubby guys called a groundhog; around here they are called woodchucks and you might confuse someone if you called it a groundhog.

    When I see dogs with abnormally sized balls, it often ended up being cancer. We have even had dogs with cryptorchidism with very swollen lower abdomens due to testicular cancer. I would say a trip to...

    Sticky: Re: Shelter Manager's Thankless Job

    We are very lucky at my shelter to have quite a bit of expendable money for our animals; we have lots of ways to make money on top of just money donations.

    That said, we are able to treat most of...
