Toronto Humane Society still has its membership page disabled. Since August 2009. Even the button that says "...become a member today!"

Humane Society of the United States is doing an e-mail campaign based on the Haitian disaster. Wonder if they'll use one-half of one percent of those donations for the Haitian animals? Investigate before you donate. Tip o' the hat to Kathy on Chicobandido.

The Michael Bryant case is a continuing saga. See the next installment on March 5th.

February 14th is the Chinese New Year, Year of the Tiger, as well as Valentine's Day. What a convergence. Gung hay fat choy, gong xi fa cai, and xin nian kuai le!

Animals in Haitian disaster

There are animals suffering in Haiti, too.

Apparently the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) and the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) will be working on the ground to help the animals in Haiti. They have developed the Animal Relief Coalition for Haiti (ARCH) to assist in the response efforts.

Best Friends Animal Society is also a member of ARCH. If you want to donate, there is a link for donations on the Best Friends website. The website states "100 percent of your donation will go directly to help animals suffering in the aftermath of the earthquake."
