Who doesn’t remember Lassie, Toto and Rin Tin Tin?

What Do You Know About Calico?

Calico cats are known for their coat of three or more colors, but many people don't realize that this is not a breed of cat. The "calico" only refers to the colors of their fur, not to their breed. A calico can be any number of breeds, but they are most commonly alley cats. According to legend the calico cat is supposed to bring good luck to its owner. What other facts don't you know about these curious kitties?

Cecil The Lion, King Of The Hill, ‘A’ Number One

The story of Cecil the Lion is now ubiquitous. His tragic ending at the hands of a nihilistic American hunter has been rebuked as pure savagery. Much has been written and captured on video. This past week, Jericho, Cecil’s brother also received global attention when it was erroneously reported that he too was killed by poachers.

Fear For Cecil The Lion’s Cubs After Uncle Was Initially Reported Killed

In the wake of Cecil the Lion brutal killing last month and his murder receiving condemnation from around the world, it was initially reported that Cecil’s brother Jericho was also killed by a hunter August 1, according to an announcement issued by the Zimbabwe Conservation Task force.

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.
