Issue 95: Fall 2018


Fires in California, nonstop fiery tweets and record-setting temperatures worldwide have many of us yearning for cooler days. While we wait, good news can be found in people and organizations giving their all to improve the lives of dogs. We highlight a few in this issue.

Take the guest editorial from GREY2K USA Worldwide, whose mission is to support laws to protect Greyhounds and promote ex-racer adoptions. Their Amendment 13 is on the Florida ballot that will, if passed, phase out dog racing in that state, do hope they win and this barbaric industry is ended.

A fitness and service-learning course offered at East Carolina University, also inspires us. They have a course about getting fit with a local shelter whose dogs were badly in need of regular walking and enrichment opportunities. Such a simple and humane concept.
