See baby Melody at Save the Chimps in Florida.

Baby Mel was rejected by her mother but two other chimps, Ron and April adopted her. She is so precious. It is amazing how much like our children they are.

Cora’s story

Cora is my lovely and delicious dog, I adore her and we have been living together for nearly two years. But her life hasn’t always been easy and happy: in fact, she arrived at the dog-pound of Ponzano Veneto (Italy)when she was about one year. None knows what had happened to her before, but I’m sure she hadn’t been well treated. Although I’m a volunteer of this dog-pound, I don’t remember her first two years there: perhaps she was kept in a box where I didn’t use to go. But one day I entered a box and immediately noticed a brown and medium size dog sitting in a corner. The dog was trembling with fear and this stroke me...

No Fun for Elephants by Bob Barker

Summer is here and you may see elephant rides being offered. This is animal abuse. These majestic creatures are poked, hooked, beaten and tazored to be submissive to the elephant handlers. This is No fun for them. Do NOT take any elephant rides because you are furthering animal abuse.

Dear Breeders: Stop – Just Stop Breeding puppies.

img_2594-2

Seriously – if you can’t do it right, just don’t do it at all. This is definitely a stab piece against dog breeders, but not for the reasons you’re probably thinking. I’m not here to condemn dog breeders or spout the “adopt don’t shop” religion. The few good, responsible breeders that exist have my full support and respect. Of my five dogs, two were purchased from breeders, and I will most certainly buy from breeders again. I like knowing my dogs’ bloodlines, and I will pay the money for a dog with health clearances. There are plenty of reasons to get a puppy from a breeder (though there are also plenty of reasons not to, as well).

Wolf 755M (right) was the alpha male of the Lamar Canyon Pack seen here with 889F (left) the fourth wolf with whom he has tried to restart a pack after his mate was shot and killed outside Yellowstone Nat’l Park.

We met Rick Lamplugh and his wife on the 2013 Wolf Rendezvous. He has become a regular contributor to Oregon Wild and is the author of the new, bestselling book In the Temple of Wolves: A Winter’s Immersion in Wild Yellowstone.
