As it has been lately, this community is intended to be self-run. It will and should remain as- is. I can no longer moderate on Google Plus because I now work for the National Wolfwatcher Coalition and it takes most of my activism efforts. Thank you and I wish you the best.

This kind of thing really upsets me.

https://www.puppyspot.com/

This website PROMOTES dog breeding. It "guarantees" that you will purchase a puppy that has NOT been born in a Puppy Mill.

Big deal. At any given time, in the continental US alone, there are 7 million dogs in shelters who have been dumped or found, waiting to be adopted. 7 MILLION.

Maybe we, as a collective, should be focusing our efforts more on THAT, rather than on deliberately breeding dog after dog, just to have more puppies to SELL to add to the already overgrown population and issue.

And don't forget that not ALL bred puppies from breeders get new homes. Many are kept to be used as breeder dogs and many are dumped or euth'd because they are not "sell" worthy.

Please. #AdoptDontShop.

The cooler weather is coming, but YOU can start making plans NOW for a Better #Bee Environment next #Spring!

It doesn't take much effort to help the Bees, and THEY NEED ALL THE HELP THEY CAN GET.

Remember, if Bees die, pollination stops, and then THAT will negatively impact AND kill off many living things.

Starting and maintaing a Bee Garden is a great way to connect family, and introduce awareness in the classroom (great school or group project)! Bring it up as a idea at school, Scouts, Nursing Homes, etc.
