Following a three hour public hearing on its Feeding of Feral Cats draft ordinance Thursday night, the Weed City Council added new language that would allow some feeding of the abandoned pets and their litters.

If voted on and passed next month, the ordinance would permit feeding feral cats on private property if the owner consents. This includes feeding by the owner of the property. Feeding without consent would be prohibited, as would feeding on all public property – including on streets, sidewalks, alleyways and in parks.

WAUKESHA — The Humane Animal Welfare Society of Waukesha County is helping those impacted by hurricane season!

HAWS welcomed a flight from Wings of Rescue full of pets displaced by the devastation of Hurricane Ida, mainly in Mississippi and Louisiana.

When the hurricane hit, shelters in the South had to clear space, so they could act as emergency shelters. HAWS takes in those pets that are already up for adoption and puts them up for adoption in our area. Staff say the program works well because it allows for shelters in hurricane impacted areas to provide shelter and reunions for

COTULLA, Texas, Sept. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Leading animal welfare nonprofit, Born Free USA, welcomed a new monkey to its primate sanctuary in South Texas last week. Five-year-old vervet monkey, Maliki, was surrendered after he bit his former owner. He is the third pet monkey the nonprofit has rescued in as many months.

The falling Miami cat and this Cricket dog had the best sports weekend ever

Only wicked pet

There is nothing better than a good sporting animal, and this week gave us not one, but TWO amazing examples of sports being invaded by our feline and canine friends.

Why should humans have all the fun? Why do they get to be the focus of attention just because of their speed and jumping skills? Cats and dogs would be better at sports than all of us if they possessed opposable thumbs, and that’s all there is to it. What I’m trying to say here is that we need dog soccer.
