Alum of the Week
Paloma (right) and Wookie are precious Puppy Mill pups that LLR rescued from a huge Puppy Mill bust in Tennessee in 2007 - over 700 animals confiscated! Paloma was ~7 years and Wookie (who came to us blind) was ~8 years. They had lived in a cage their whole lives. Paloma and Wookie soon became a bonded pair that clearly needed to stay together. They became LLR Sanctuary pups when it was discovered that Paloma had a heart condition and needed extra medical care for the rest of her life. Sadly, Paloma's heart condition gradually but progressively worsened over the years and she crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Monday, 17 November at 12:03pm. As you can see from the picture above, they flourished and transformed into healthy, beautiful dogs. Thank you, Debbie Barrett, for pouring all your love onto these girls and showing them, for the first time EVER, how to be Lovin' Life in a happy home. We miss you Paloma...
HB 5772 - Has passed both Chambers. Requires that information about an animal's history be disclosed to consumers for any dog or cat available for sale at a pet store.
HB 4801 - Has passed both Chambers. Prohibits the private possession of primates as pets. 21 states have already banned the possession of primates as pets because of the risk of attacks on humans, the possible spread of disease, and the inability to properly care for the needs of a primate in a home.
HB 4722 - Has passed both Chambers. Requires the addition of a bittering agent to anti-freeze so as to render it unpalatable. Every year thousands of children and animals are poisoned after ingesting anti-freeze. Its ingredients smell and taste sweet, which makes the deadly substance attractive to animals and children.
