Lots of stuff going on that is dog and cat related in Tucson and beyond.

Buy bracelets for Mini Miracles

Mini Miracles
Beading Divas to the Rescue’s charity for July is Mini Miracles. Check out all the good work they do and, of course, buy a bracelet or three. See our latest post and look for dazzling new bracelets coming next week.

Hope Animal Shelter, Tucson no-kill shelter is asking people to vote everyday and in every way in the Pepsi Non-Profit Challenge. Pepsi is giving away big bucks. Help keep the doors of Hope Animal Shelter open.

Check out the story that KOLD-TV did about Hope Animal Shelter and then vote, vote, vote.

Sniff, the dog movie, plays on the big screen at Tucson’s Screening Room on Saturday July 10 at 6 pm and 8 pm. This is part of the 2nd Saturday festivities. The movie is part documentary and part fiction but a must-see for all dog lovers. Admission costs a mere $6 with a portion being donated to Hope Animal Shelter.

Dog Food & Pet Supplement Recalls
Merrick Pet Care, Inc. of Amarillo, Texas is recalling 86 cases of its 10 oz “Beef Filet Squares for Dogs” pet treats (ITEM # 60016 LOT # 10084TL7 BEST BY MARCH 24, 2012) because they have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.

United Pet Group, Cincinnati, Ohio is voluntarily expanding its recent recall of its Pro-Pet Adult Daily Vitamin Supplement tablets for Dogs to include additional pet nutritional supplement products for dogs and cats due to possible salmonella contamination.

Good News for Greyhounds
Greyhound racing is done and gone in Kansas, the home of National Greyhound Association, and the progressive state of New Hampshire ended greyhound racing too. 

“No longer are dogs being held hostage as the state subsidizes an industry that people have stated loudly and clearly with their pocketbooks that they no longer have an interest in supporting.” Hats off to New Hampshire and Kansas!

This means that less greyhounds are bred for racing for starters plus all the other animal cruelty that follows during their careers. Roo!
