Help stop the Puppy Mills in style

puppytradeOscar's Law is an Australian based initiative to stop puppy mills - those farms where they mass produce breeds in nasty conditions and mistreat the poor old pups.


It's a hideous way to get everyone their little bundle of joy - especially when there are pleanty of natural births and especially abandoned pups to go around.


The group behind the laws are pushing the message far and wide, and have a lovely new range of merchandise that you can get your hands on and support the good work of Oscar's Law.

'Gay' Dog rescued from Shelter in the USA

A dog in Tennessee whose owner dumped it at a shelter because he thought it was gay was saved from euthanasia at the last minute by a kindhearted animal lover.


The dog was left with a rabies control shelter in Jackson, Tenn., this week “not because he’s mean or tears things up… But because his owner says he’s gay!” the group Jackson TN Euthanasia, which tries to find homes for dogs in kill-shelters, posted on its Facebook page on Wednesday.


“He hunched  another male dog so his owner threw him away because he refuses to have a ‘gay’ dog!” the group wrote in a post that went viral, leading to thousands of comments online and hundreds of people calling the shelter.


One of those callers was Stephanie Fryns, a veterinary tech from Jackson, who rescued the bulldog-mix. She named him Elton.
