You’ve heard of Da Vinci, Monet and Picasso, but what about Bamboozle, Diesel and Benny? These brilliant artists may have fur and four legs (and no thumbs!), but they are creative, too!

Your gift today not only helps provide activities and training to enrich our furry friends’ lives, but helps them find forever homes, as well. -emily

Not so long ago, in many communities, animals coming into shelters were more likely to be killed than adopted. With love and determination, however, these communities turned it all around.

After a decade, the city of Lakewood, Ohio has finally repealed its “pit bull ban,” making Lakewood the third Ohio city to repeal its breed-discriminatory ban in recent months, opting instead for a safety-focused dangerous dog ordinance that treats all dogs as individuals.

Read more in today’s blog about how victories like Lakewood’s are happening all across the nation, thanks to local advocates who recognize that politics is not a spectator sport. -emily
