On Saturday, about 200 people gathered at Elmwood Cemetery to say goodbye to a gentle deer who for more than two years was a welcome sight to visitors of the cemetery in Kansas City.

Ella became famous when the story of the deer and the stray dog she befriended went viral.

"Freedom" is a Husky that has been living on the streets of Soldotna, Alaska for the past 14 months. Freedom does not bother anyone. She has not bitten anyone.  So why is the Soldotna police chief trying to kill her, instead of accepting free help from a DVM expert at capturing wild dogs? 

Please read more and sign petition:

The kitten that was brought to the Front Street Animal Clinic in Sacramento, California with burns to his ears and body has passed away.

The four-month-old kitten, named Phoenix by the clinic, had been soaked in fuel and set on fire.  

A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible.

Please help get the word out, this person must be caught.  Phoenix is not the first animal in that area this year that was found burned after being set on fire.

On August 5, as part of a plea deal, a judge suspended a 270 day jail sentence after Rodney Smith pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges.  Sixteen dogs, 2 cats, 3 hamsters and 2 parrots were removed from the home.  The judge ordered that he could not own animals for five years.

Then just weeks later, on August 26, police were back at the home, and removed four dogs, two cats and one ferret.

No charges have been filed against him (yet).  

Photo is of one of the dogs removed from the home.

Do you remember when this happened?  It still hurts to think about all those beautiful animals getting killed.

Today, an auction will be held at the estate of Terry Thompson, the Zanesville man who in 2011 released his exotic animals, then shot himself.
