Here is a wonderful solution to a terrible situation. One woman is closing stores that sell puppy mill puppies. It's a common sense approach that all of us could do.

Some of these products make my skin crawl. I have changed my mind about the treadmill. But pet parents should not treat their pets like accessories. 

I would love your comments on this! http://petnewsandviews.net/2012/03/10-pet-products-that-make-me-say-what-were-they-thinking/

I wrote a post that will not make me popular. It's about pet products I hate. One made me cry when I saw it. It's a tiny fish tank/teddy bear that children can carry around. It actually got an award from a major pet blogging association. 

I would like to hear your thoughts on these and other pet products that make you say, "What were they thinking?"

It actually got an award from a major pet blogging association. I have no idea what they were thinking when they decided to give an award to this product or what the creator of this product had in mind. It's cruel.

I would love it if you would share your opinion on my blog about these and other products that make you say, "What were they thinking?"

I am hosting a contest with The Honest Kitchen. They make high end all natural pet food. I posted it here on Care2, but would really appreciate it if you could visit this link and leave a comment.

If I get 100 comments, The Honest Kitchen will donate a total of 800 pounds of cat and dog food to Bideawee and Second Chance Animal Rescue. Both are NY shelters. 

And one winner will receive a 10 pound box of Love dog food from The Honest Kitchen. My goal is to run one contest a month. I don't get any $ from this. The pets at the shelters get products, which are desperately needed. 

So, please leave a comment & if you want to share, that would be great too! Here is the link: http://petnewsandviews.net/2012/03/contest-to-benefit-bideawee-and-second-chance-animal-rescue/

The sea otter has been protected, and their numbers are coming back. Now, a congress person wants to change that. It will endanger the sea otter's existence. We can all stop it if we send the letters to our state reps. The form letter has a link to every state's rep. 

This is only for folks in the U.S., but it you have friends here, please share!

The sea otter has been protected, and their numbers are coming back. Now, a congress person wants to change that. It will endanger the sea otter's existence. We can all keep the laws protecting the sea otter in place if we send a letter to our state reps. The link  below has a form letter that you can send to your state's rep.

Mark your calendar for February 28, 2012. It’s National Spay Day. And I know (and hope) that many of you are thinking that this should not be a one day a year event. Everyday, everywhere in the world pet parents should spay or neuter their dogs and cats.http://www.care2.com/news/member/293228672/3109922

Or you can go here and leave a comment: 

http://petnewsandviews.net/2012/02/everyday-should-be-national-spay-day/

I would love to know how you will spend National Spay Day.

Pet News and Views is offering subscribers a Free Pet Discount Drug Card good for pets and their humans. This card can save you up to 55 percent off the price of your prescription medications.

This card is good for pet and human prescription medications. A lot of the drugs prescribed for pets are the same meds that we take—just smaller doses. I signed up to distribute Free Pet Discount Drug Cards, and thought it would be nice to share them with my subscribers.

The cards are accepted at over 80 percent of all pharmacies in the U.S. and its territories, from national chains to your local pharmacy including Walgreens, Rite-Aid, Target, CVS, etc. The card never expires and can be used over and over again. 

Not Insurance
This is not pet insurance or health insurance for people. 

With this card you can save up to 15 percent on brand-name medications and up to 55 percent on generics. All you have to do is get a prescription from your vet (or physician) and take it to a participating pharmacy with this Prescription Drug Discount Card.

To Get Your Free Pet Discount Drug Card
If you would like to receive a FREE Pet Discount Drug Card, click on the link for details: http://petnewsandviews.net/2011/07/free-discount-drug-card-for-pets-and-their-humans/ and subscribe to Pet News and Views. Or you can visit the link and print out the card image on the screen. It has the full ID number that you can use. You can use the card over and over again.
