Puppy was surrendered to a shelter for the worst crime of all: getting old! Her owners decided she was too much trouble and dumped her as though they were throwing out a bag of trash. We are disgusted; would you do this with an elderly relative? Just dump them out when caring for them gets too hard? These people probably would…

Friends of West Valley Animal Shelter is taking care of her adoption and wrote this on their website: “Let’s get this girl a home as soon as we can! Puppy is a spritely thirteen years old weighing just thirteen pounds. She is a white Poodle, Miniature mix, and has been spayed. She is in good health, and is full of life. There has to be someone out there who wants to take her home!”

Senior dogs deserve just as much love and affection as any other dog. They give us the best years of our life so why can’t we do the same for them? There are too many older dogs who are cast aside in favor of cute puppies or anything that is less trouble. How can you dump a dog at a shelter just because they are getting on in years? Please don’t overlook a senior dog if you are looking to adopt!

If you are looking for the next member of your family or have fallen in love with Puppy as quickly as we have, please visit her adoption page at West Valley Animal Shelter.

The Plant Based Foods Association (PBFA) has partnered with Lucky supermarkets to help market and promote plant-based food products at 70 of the retailers stores in Northern California! Over the next eight weeks, shoppers at these grocery stores can expect to find discounts, tasting demos, educational booklets, point-of-sale ads, a radio spot, and even a celebrity appearance.

JUST Foods (formerly Hampton Creek) is an innovative plant-based food company most widely known for their mayos and spreads. Earlier this year, they debuted a new product, the Just Egg, an animal-free scrambled egg alternative made from mung beans, and its popularity has already soared, filling in the long-standing need for more vegan egg alternatives.

As you may already know, a large part of your personal carbon footprint is determined by what kinds of foods you choose to fuel your body with. With this in mind, GRACE Communications Foundation recently released a new website designed to help consumers track their own personal “foodprint.”
