Reading Series: Dogland – Pet Deserts

“The shelter is at the back end of the equation. People need to realize these animals are not the shelter’s problem; they’re the community’s problem.” I love this quote, which comes from Chris Protzman, interviewed by Dogland author Jacki Skole, who helped found the Blount County Animal Center.

Top Animal & Environmental Law Tweets of the Week – 3/6/2017

If you follow my Twitter account at all, you’ve probably noticed that I am anti-Trump and his administration. Not only am I disgusted by his (and his administration’s) misogyny, sexism, bigotry, and racism, I am also staunchly against his anti-science and anti-animal platform.
