    SPRINGFIELD, Colo., March 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Wild Animal Sanctuary has completed the purchase of a 9,004-acre ranch located in southeastern Colorado near the agricultural community of Springfield. With more than 460 lions, tigers, bears, wolves and other rescued animals currently residing at the non-profit organization's facility near Keenesburg, Colorado, the need for additional space drove the organization to seek additional land to continue fulfilling its mission. Working with law enforcement agencies and other animal welfare groups within the United States and around the world, the organization had reached capacity at its 789-acre Sanctuary located just thirty miles northeast...

    Save HEREFORD — It was January 2010 when Horse’n Around Rescue Ranch and Foundation opened its doors on Single Star Ranch in Hereford. The nonprofit’s co-founders, Theresa Warrell and Steve Boice, opened the rescue after seeing a dire need to help neglected, abused and abandoned equines in southern Arizona. “At the time we started the rescue, we knew there was a need, but had no idea how great that need really was,” Warrell said. “To date, we have rescued 131 equines and adopted out 67.” On Sunday, Horse’n Around will be hosting an open house from 1 to 3 p.m....

    It was an idyllic but cold holiday morning near Daly City's Thornton Beach, the kind of morning that draws families and dog walkers to the coast. But just after 11:30 a.m., one man's attempt to save his dog cost him his life. The National Park Service confirms the 67-year-old man was trying to get to his stranded dog, which had made its way part way down a cliff, just west of Skyline Drive. But then he slipped and fell as many as 500 feet to his death. Firefighters had to race to beat the high tide to get to the...

    Animal rescuers were summoned to a Thailand fence where a massive monitor lizard attempted to squeeze between metal bars and found itself stuck. A video recorded Monday in Chachoengsao shows the 5-foot lizard stuck around its middle between the metal bars of a fence that it apparently attempted to pass through while hunting near its pond. The Chachoengsao Rescue Team was summoned to the scene and the video shows them using hydraulic pliers to separate the bars and free the chubby lizard. The monitor, apparently uninjured, runs quickly into its pond after being freed. The rescuers said they plan to...

    Oct. 14 (UPI) -- California Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation into law this week that requires pet stores in the state to exclusively sell rescue dogs, cats and rabbits. Assembly Bill 485, the Pet Rescue and Adoption Act, requires all dogs, cats, and rabbits offered for retail sale in California to be obtained from animal shelters or non-profit rescue organizations. "This is a big win for our four-legged friends, of course," the bill's author, Assemblymember Patrick O'Donnell, D-Long Beach, said in a statement Friday. "But also for California taxpayers who spend more than $250 million annually to house and euthanize...

    Some Glades residents fleeing Hurricane Irma left their pets tethered to trees and cars before evacuating the area, county officials said Saturday. Dianne Sauve, head of Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, said the department will be pursuing criminal charges against owners who abandoned their dogs and left them tied up in places where they would not be able to escape the storm. Animal control officers rescued 26 dogs from Pahokee and Belle Glade on Friday.

    Animal control officers in Palm Beach County say they are seeing animal abuse like they’ve never experienced before. Palm Beach County Animal Care reports animal control officers have rescued 49 dogs and two cats in the last 48 hours, according to WPTV. Local animal officials reported finding dozens of dogs chained to trees and parked cars as thousands of people flee the Sunshine State. High winds have now made it impossible for animal control officers to respond to these calls. County Director of Animal Care Diane Suave said she is encouraging anyone to shelter animals they see tethered outside.

    A dog owner accused of abandoning his pet found frightened and alone atop a car surrounded by rising Harvey flood waters wants him back. And rescuers have agreed to return the animal. CBS11 reporter J.D. Miles shared video of the pit bulls’ plight, which quickly went viral. People were outraged by the implication that his owners left their 3-year-old dog named “Blue” behind. But Blue’s owner Charles Rogers says rescuers are the ones to blame – not him.

    The devastating events through Houston and other parts of Texas have shown us not only the destructive power of hurricanes, but also, surprisingly, what we as humans really can be. In a world too often jaded by idiocy and recrimination, it is often a shock to realize how moved we can be by the plight of others. Pictures are coming out showing folk carrying their pets through the waters; some over the shoulders and some in their arms, and each one is more moving than the last.

    Good Samaritans helped move horses to safety after a fire broke out at a historic race track in Orange County. The fire began after 6 p.m. Wednesday at a barn at the Goshen Historic Track, a registered historic landmark, and quickly spread. Kaufman said there were just seconds to react to get one horse, named Caviar Hall, out. “Caviar Hall was in a burning stall after the fire erupted and it was thanks to one of the horse trainers that he was able to make it out safely,” he said. “The whole stall was full of flames and the horse...

    Hundreds of Huskies are being abandoned by Game of Thrones fans who want to have their very own 'Direwolf'. British dog charities are concerned that Huskies are becoming the next 'problem breed' after being impulse bought by owners, only to find they can meet their demanding needs. Direwolves are the dogs kept by the Stark family in Game of Thrones, acting as body guards to the children.

Neuter cookies will only neuter males. Better yet, they are being engineered so that they will only need to be...
  • Misguided Attempt to Free Thousands of Minks Goes Horribly Wrong (Libtards kill 40,000 minks)

    Between 30,000 and 40,000 farm-raised minks were released into the wild near Eden Valley, Minnesota, earlier this week when burglars—presumably animal rights activists—cut the fence to a mink-pelt farm and opened the cages holding the mammals, letting them run into the wild. Minks are strange little creatures somewhere between otters and ferrets, and when they run, their front halves and back halves teeter independently like two people pretending to be one horse. While the idea of tens of thousands of minks flopping through a pasture is quite amusing, the minks’ liberation likely came at a price: Farm-raised minks aren’t really...

    Cheri Glankler has been rescuing dogs for 20 years — the last five of those spent in Garden Valley — so the elderly retriever that ended up in her care in late June was nothing out of the ordinary. At least initially. From the outset, the dog looked rough. She was found collapsed on a ranch off Idaho 55 near Horseshoe Bend and brought to Glankler covered in fleas and ticks. “Please share if you know someone is missing her,” Glankler wrote in a Facebook post in the Lost Pets Boise page. But Glankler had a hunch about who might...
