As firefighters battled a blaze this mother dog was spotted going back and forth from the burning building, dragging each of her puppies to safety inside the fire truck. There’s nothing like a mother’s love!
Adoptable of the Week: Sparkey! Sparkey is a quiet, mature fellow who is looking for the same qualities in his new adopter. Years ago, he left the shelter as a shy, timid guy who could barely leave the shelter for a walk. He blossomed under the care of his adopters who gently helped him come out of his shell. They were devastated that they could no longer keep him, and hope that he will find a new loving. Meet Sparkey today!http://tinyurl.com/cdnh4gs
Adopted Stokley from SFSPCA today. Here he is emerging from his box and stepping on his little blanket, which is an art piece created by one of the kids at the SFSPCA’s Humane Education program. Talk about a consistent experience. He’s been cool sitting on it and looking around for the last couple of hours. Looks like he’s settling in.
We’ve joined 15 California Humane Societies to call for a boycott of Ringing Bros. Circus. In March 2012 Ringling was fined $270,000 for mishandling animals, the largest civil penalty ever issued to a circus. Please join us by only supporting entertainment venues that don’t use animal performers! More info: http://tinyurl.com/bovk7mu

BREAKING: The Fluffington Post Snubbed By Pulitzer Board
The 2012 Pulitzer Prizes were announced today, and media watchers were stunned by one notable absence. Among the news organizations not winning one of the prestigious awards is The Fluffington Post.
“I thought for sure their landmark coverage of Duck Duck Goosegate would get them recognition,” said Dr. Abel Jepson, a professor of communications at Columbia University. ”This is one of the worst snubs from the Pulitzer Board in the past decade.”
According to sources, Olly the Cat, a junior reporter who works at The Fluffington Post on the duck equality beat, was so distraught that he has locked himself in a conference room at FluffPo headquarters and is building a fort out of newspaper.
