Video: Dog Left in Car Blares the Horn

1 Comment

This dog is furious about being left in a parked car with the windows up and wants everyone to know.  According to the video’s uploader, the dog was discovered in Eureka, California. Apparently, it’d drawn a few onlookers by the time the videographer arrived due to the fact that it had been blaring the horn on and off for several minutes.  No word on whether or not the road-raging pup ever got the attention of its owner, but you have to assume the reunion was tense. Or at least awkward for the owner to come to a parked car full of strangers watching.

How Being Vegan Really Helps Animals

Leave a comment

More people are moving toward a plant-based diet, owing in part to evidence about human health and environmental sustainability, and in part to the emerging scientific consensus on the breadth and depth of animal consciousness and sentience.  Full disclosure: I am a pesco-vegetarian — I eat an occasional fish.  But how might choosing to eat fewer animals than ever before — or no animals at all (vegetarian), or no animals or animal products (vegan) — make a difference for animals or for the world.

Lawmakers Aim to Protect Farm Animals in U.S. Research

Leave a comment

Farm animals used in federal experiments to help the meat industry would receive new protections against mistreatment and neglect under legislation introduced on Thursday by a bipartisan group of lawmakers from both houses of Congress.  The bill aims to extend the federal Animal Welfare Act to shield cows, pigs, sheep and other animals used for agricultural research at federal facilities, including the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center in Clay Center, Neb., a unit of the Department of Agriculture. The act, which became law in 1966, excluded those animals, focusing largely on cats and dogs used in laboratory research.

GIFs That Show What Animals Are Really Thinking

Leave a comment

Since the beginning of time, humans have speculated on what animals are truly thinking.  The human-animal language barrier really puts a damper on things — if only we could get into the minds of our animal friends, and figure out what they really mean with all of those barks and meows.Until we figure that out, however, the new subreddit r/AnimalTextGIFs is giving our furry friends the voice they deserve by providing subtitles that accurately convey their emotions.  Yes, your cat hates you. Sorry.

Dog and Cat Found Together Adopted Together

Leave a comment

On Thursday we told you about a stray dog and cat – best friends – who were found together in Georgia.  We’re pleased to tell you that they’ve already found a home – together!  Henni the dog and Penny the cat – both females –were brought to the Columbia County Animal Services in Grovetown after a woman discovered them in her yard.  “They were brought in as strays to us by a citizen in Martinez who found them in her yard and the owner actually found them online and contacted us to let us know that they were her pets,” explained Shelter Operations Manager Daniel Mayne.  “She wasn’t able to come back and reclaim them. Her husband is in the military and got stationed up in North Carolina so she wasn’t able to come back and get them.”

Dog Has Cat’s Back

Leave a comment

Hello and thank you for the insane cat pictures.  Below you will find an example of dog heroism.A cat in need of protection receives it and a further escalation is avoided. That is obviously good news.  But more needs to be done to get at the root of the problem that caused the initial conflict between the two cats. That dog won’t always be around to bail its friend out.  Perhaps the bully cat had a rough upbringing. Maybe there was some sort of traumatic incident in its past that makes it act out violently.
