Another look at Lied

This morning I received a call from Marie Montera, a reporter for Channel 3 news. They were doing a follow up story about the mass euthanasia at Lied this past February. The Humane Society released a 200 page report detailing the procedures at Lied and what was going on behind the scenes. Some of the details were pretty graphic, others were just plain lack of training.


They also interviewed my vet, Doctor David Henderson of the Sunrise Vet clinic. Doc Henderson has had past experience running a shelter and is a volunteer for Heaven Can Wait Sanctuary, in addition to running his own practice (if you are looking for a vet, I HIGHLY recommend his office).


The interview aired at 5 pm today and will was replayed again at six o'clock. You'll see me as the "animal advocate". One of the best things to come about from this story is raising awareness of the problems local shelters face in Las Vegas. If you are wondering what you can do to help stop overcrowding at the shelter, make sure your pet is spayed or neutered and microchipped. In Clark County, your animal must be altered, unless its of breeding quality and you have the proper licensing.

That's a good idea to have the spaying/neutering of the pets as mandatory, even if it might seem to go a bit far; sometimes I it's probably better to have more law than necessary rather than having a feral cat/dog problem that can get out of hand quickly.

I wanted to let you know about some of the things going on over at the US Blogs Community at Bumpzee. There is an RSS Feed which will give you snippets of every post in the community, both on blogs and in the community itself. Also, you can get a US Blogs button and a list of links to all the blogs in the community. As of now, we're up to 40 blogs, and it would be awesome if we could get the number doubled by the end of the month. It might seem to be daunting, but we've gone from none to 40 in the space of three weeks, so it's definitely possible. Be sure to tell all your blogging friends here in the States about it :)

Dear waitaminute,

You'll notice your vitrolic, mendacious comment was not posted. Anoynomous personal attacks are not welcome here, nor will they be repeated. If you ever get the stones to back up your comments with your real name, then I may take your input with more consideration.
