Welcome to the Pet Newsletter - for those who love animals! Sponsored by a non profit foranimals: Animals Alone Society of Kindness Services.
Subscribe (top right of right column!) to be Notified of our next Newsletter and Enjoy your stay! Add your comments to the topics so that others may benefit as well!
With the New Year underway, the newsletter will be taking on changes concerning the promotions of animal related topics and most of all - AASK Shelter and Rescue. We have an entire new product line for all Pet Lovers and their four legged loves.
This year, we begin with a suttle approach to Animal Abuse via our newest designs that get the word out there with compassion.
"Protect and Respect" is our design that we hope animal lovers will wear or use with pride and help promote the cause... there's a variety of products available for you to choose from with this design! Shoppers can now choose the product wanted as opposed to us picking a specific product. Lotsa choices this year!
We've got Bumper Stickers lined up and all kinds of goodies that promote the health and wellness of animals and people - not to mention, helps us support our cause.
With New Years around the corner and Christmas behind us, I'm hoping that folks remember the plight of our furry friends and deter from purchases of real fur and to be especially precautious when labels state that it's faux fur.... brand names like Bloomingdale's, Neiman Marcus, Lord & Taylor, Dillard's, Saks Fifth Avenue and Yoox.com—have not addressed this consumer deception and continue sales in fur collars and trims, claiming it to be faux fur. Certain jackets sold by these companies with the brand names Burberry, Andrew Marc, Marc New York, Preston & York, Aqua, Ramosport and Adam+Eve were found to be falsely advertised or mislabeled as faux fur.
C'mon now, do you really want to be wearing something that has a trim of REAL Dog or Cat Fur???
Last winter, of 25 fur-trimmed jackets tested by The HSUS, every single one was falsely advertised, falsely labeled, unlabeled or had a combination of these problems. Twenty were identified by laboratory testing as raccoon dog and three as domestic dog.
Raccoon dogs and domestic dogs are both raised for their fur in China—a country with no functioning animal welfare laws, and where investigators have documented animals being skinned alive for their fur. Like many other species, rabbits raised for their fur spend their entire lives in tiny wire cages. Much of the world’s fur is processed in China, where environmental problems associated with the industry are receiving scrutiny - to find out more - visit the Humane Society's website at http://www.hsus.org/furfree/news/holiday_shoppers_real_fur_as_faux_122007.html
more coming, something has come up.......
This month's newsletter takes us to a shelter in Leander TX where it's occupants display an active, happy life, until a "forever home" can be found. The clip(s) show a couple of playful residents who - while in their cages, show how shelter life isn't all that bad considering, it is hoped to be temporary!
