It’s the dog, Taylor. The New York City-based rescue group that cares for him, Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue, is the organization behind a genius calendar that combines handsome shirtless men with adorable, adoptable doggies.

The 2015 calendar, fittingly called “Hunks and Hounds,” benefits Louie’s Legacy financially and also promotes of animal welfare.

“The message of the calendar is that we should all be kind to animals and protect them from harm,” says Mike Ruiz, a celebrity photographer who shot the calendar’s images.

Will My Dog Go to Heaven?

Dogpaddling Through Life

When I was growing up, the consensus of religious scholars was that animals have no soul, and therefore, there’s no place for them in heaven.

Indeed, that was the philosophy of Descartes, who wrote in Meditations that animals are automatons with no souls, mind, or reason.

049 Happy dog with a new toy? And what is that cat doing, anyway?

But as I have grown older, I have watched more people develop close relationships with animals, as close as any other family member. Many of us even refer to our companion animals as “children.”

As scientists show us that animals have feelings, and share community, the religious scholars began to debate that premise. Surely animals have a greater worth than just to be here for our pleasure.

Now we have priests and pastors crawling out of the woodwork to bless animals as a part of the Feast of St Francis of Assisi, celebrated…

Stop the killing of 900 Bison in Yellowstone Natl Park!!

Exposing the Big Game

Bison are incredible animals who once roamed the Great Plains in astounding numbers.  According to the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, Bison populations were estimated to be 30 million – 60 million in the 1500s. Today, those numbers are a fraction of their former glory – only 20,000 – 25,000 remain in small herds across the US.  The Yellowstone National Park Respresentives have recommended 900 park bison be removed this winter through hunting and ship-to-slaughter methods.  A better solution would be to relocate these animals to other herds…there is NO reason to kill them.  Join us in making our voice heard for the Bison who shouldn’t have to perish!

Madrid will kill dog of woman infected with Ebola

The Extinction Protocol

The husband of a Spanish nursing assistant who contracted Ebola poses with his dog in this image posted to the Facebook page of Asociacion Protectora Villa Pepa.
October 2014SPAINMadrid’s regional government said it would kill the pet dog of a Spanish nursing assistant who became infected with Ebola — overcoming the family’s objections on Tuesday with a court order. The nursing assistant was the first person infected outside of West Africa, after caring for a Spanish priest who died of Ebola last month. Authorities have three people under quarantine and said that available scientific knowledge indicates there’s a risk the dog could transmit the deadly virus to humans. There has been some evidence that dogs can get Ebola, and that people can be infected by animals. In Africa, the virus has been thought to spread as a result of handling bushmeat — wild animals hunted for…
