Pilots to the Rescue

I just found out this morning on the Mother Nature Network website about a wonderful organization called Pilots N Paws. This South Carolina organization was started by animal lover Debi Boies and pilot Jon Wehrenberg in 2008. Today the organization boasts 3000 pilots and 12,000 volunteers across the country who rescue animals, transport them, and even provide foster homes. To date, they have rescued over 12,000 animals but they do a whole lot more as well. For more information and to make a donation to help them continue their wonderful work please visit:

European Union Goes Cruelty-Free

Great News From the Leaping Bunny Website for all you compassionate shoppers. 

"In less than two weeks, animal testing on personal care products will be banned in the European Union (EU). Our international partner, the European Coalition to End Animal Experiments, has worked on this important issue for over two decades, and starting March 11, it will be illegal to market, import, or sell animal-tested finished personal care products or their ingredients in the 27 countries that make up the EU.

Free Feeding Your Furry Kid

As an experienced pet sitter I have often run into many pet parents who free feed their dogs and cats. What do I mean by free feed? I mean putting down a bowl of food for the day and letting the pet eat as much as he wants. It usually involves refilling the bowl as it gets empty.

If you are one of these pet parents you may be asking yourself so what's wrong with that? In many cases, nothing. If your pet is an ideal weight, and just eats when he is hungry and is in good health, free feeding is generally not a problem.

Pet Food Stamps

I just had to let you know about this new program for people in dire financial situations who need help purchasing food for their companion animals. Please read this and pass it on to anyone you know who may need help. Finally, help for our animals.

"With the continued growth of the Pet Food Stamps program, it is expected in the 4th quarter 2013 to expand into offering free or heavily discounted veterinary care for all qualified program beneficiaries as part of the Pet Food Stamps program.
