Cool Dog Jobs in the News; Sniffing out Elephant Ivory from Poachers

We love reading about dogs with jobs. Dogs are a lot smarter than people think. Just look at this article! 


THESE DOGS SNIFF OUT ELEPHANT IVORY!

  "Will Powell, the director of AWF's Conservation Canine Program, just finished training 10 dogs and 14 handlers to monitor two epicenters of the ongoing poaching crisis that's devastated elephant and rhino populations. The program has been running alongside officials from the Kenyan Wildlife Service and Tanzania's Wildlife Division for the past two months, and the detection teams will soon help patrol the ports of Dar and Mombasa."

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
