Elfie's Refuge, Brooksville, FL -- "At Elfie's Refuge we have two objectives - One - We provide life-long sanctuary and hospice care for small dogs that are blind, crippled, disabled or terminally ill - dogs that would not be considered adoptable and would otherwise be euthanized. Two - We attempt to take in adoptable dogs that are in danger in public or private shelters. Our goal is to spay or neuter, if needed, provide immediate medical care, and seek out carefully screened homes for these pets. For more information, please pay a brief visit to our website."

Tell the President of Wayne State University to Halt Cruel Heart Failure Experiments on Dogs --

For more than 20 years, experiments have been conducted at Wayne State University using dogs in heart failure research. Supposedly intended to find out more about heart failure in humans, these experiments have not, in fact, done that. Over that time, hundreds of dogs have been used and killed with no human health benefits to show for it. Since 2000, more than $5 million in taxpayer funding—doled out by the National Institutes of Health—have gone to these experiments. Sign the petition of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine to end these inhumane and pointless experiments.

Factory Farming Doesn't Want You to Know about the Horrors....

The right to free speech belongs to you only if factory farmers say you're entitled to it. If they have their way, laws may soon be passed in some states making it illegal for the public to try to find out and report the truth about factory farming.

Quotes of the month:

"Always hold firmly to the thought that each one of us can do something to bring some portion of misery to an end." Author unknown

"The assumption that animals are without rights, and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance, is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality." -- Arthur Schopenhauer, German Philosopher

"A man is truly ethical only when he obeys the compulsion to help all life which he is able to assist, and shrinks from injuring anything that lives." -- Albert Schweitzer, Alsatian Theologian, Musician, and Medical Missionary
