Dr. Seuss Fans Get A Treat This Week With New Book All About Pets

He passed away in 1991, but his body of work lives on and is still as fresh and relevant today, as it was when we were growing up. Now, you can add to that legacy yet a new tome - one that’s being lauded as “pure Seussian magic (with) loopy drawings, crazy rhymes, kids taking charge and even a little mystery at the end,” according to a NY Daily News review.

Euthanasia Halted By Photo Going Viral On Facebook

While many of us might dismiss yet another ‘cute’ dog photo going viral online, there was one this past week that was just so heartbreaking, it actually saved the lives of a couple of pups who from all appearances resisted being separated. For those who don’t know what a ‘high kill’ shelter entails, it sets a time limit on just how long rescue animals can be housed before they are euthanized.

Tsū Network Allows For Social Giving To Animals

Social networks like Facebook and Twitter were perhaps the first to create an opportunity for charitable organizations and foundations to set up a presence in the social media space. However, more currently they have been overshadowed by a young upstart social network called Tsu, which in its short 9-month tenure has earned a solid reputation as the go-to platform for social giving, particularly when it comes to animals.

6 Things You Can Do For A Dog Stuck In A Hot Car

Most of us treat our dogs like they're members of the family. Since they can't talk back, there are moments where they're treated even better than the humans in our lives (though we're often reluctant to admit that). Unfortunately, not everyone thinks the way that we animal lovers do, and as we approach the hottest part of the year for most of the country, reports of dogs locked in cars are popping up all over the place.

Leaping Lizards Batman, Your Look-A-likes Can Fly

What animal looks like Batman, weighs more than a ton, can grow to 30 feet in width and is able to fly? While it could be mistaken for a prehistoric bird, we’re talking about a manta ray (aka “flying mobula”). And they’re often captured on film bursting out of the ocean ascending as high 9 feet in the air.

Knitting Nests For Injured And Abandoned Baby Animals

Wildlife Rescue Nests is a non-profit group created by Katie Deline-Ray in Ontario, Canada that provides free knitted and crocheted nests to wildlife rescue groups. These little nests and burrows help rescued and orphaned wildlife feel warm and safe while they heal and recover. It has earned her the nickname of "the crazy nest lady."

Windshield Wiper Vandalism Case Solved, Perps Won't Become Jailbirds

Japanese police are “raven” after solving a mysterious case of auto vandalism in which up to 40 cars had the rubber stripped from their windshield wipers. No arrests will be made, however, as the perps turned out to be clever and resourceful neighborhood crows.

Tama, Japan's Feline Stationmaster, Says Sayonara

Sad news came out of Japan this week that Tama, the feline stationmaster for the Wakayama Electric Railway's Kishi station has passed away. The calico cat had taken up the post after it was noticed how much the little stray enjoyed meeting people who arrived at the station. Making her stationmaster saved the financially strapped Kishigawa Line from being closed.

Quasi Modo -- The World's Ugliest Dog 2015

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder then so is ugly. A panel of three judges at the 27th World's Ugliest Dog contest in Petaluma, California got together on Friday and declared Quasi Modo, a Pit Bull/Dutch Shepherd mix, the ugliest dog in the world. She beat out 25 other dogs for the title and took home $1,500 in prize money and a huge trophy.

Same-Sex Unions In Animal Kingdom Set A Precedent 560 Million Years Ago

While it just took 9 judges (with a 5-4 vote) to deliberate on the historic decision allowing same-sex marriages in the United States, there’s been no need for such formality in the animal kingdom. In fact, homosexual behavior in the animal kingdom has been around since our co-inhabitants first walked the Earth some 560 million years ago.
