Furry Friends: Dude

Furry Friends: Dude

From the Pulaski County Humane Society:

This is Dude, a ine-year-old hound mix who has been at the shelter since last June.  He's very friendly and loves people and other dogs.  He's very smart, and we know he will be very easy to house train.  He's walked several times a day at the shelter and knows what he's supposed to do!

For information on how to adopt Dude, visit warmhearts.org or call (501) 227-6166.

From dumpster diving to corralling horses

From dumpster diving to corralling horses

Well, as Joey the Garden Cat’s caretaker (aka momma/agent), I’m always on the lookout for interesting or heartwarming pet stories.  So, recently while taking a horse riding lesson I was greeted by a very chatty cat named Izzy.  I was amused to see Izzy navigating with easy around all the horses, dogs, cars and people who were busy about. And the funny part was she had something to meow about at every step and turn, which told me she was the boss around these parts. I just had to know Izzy's story. 

Izzy was homeless and living off dumpster scraps at the restaurant Izzy's, hence her name.  A cat lovin' lady rescued her, making sure she got spayed and received all her shots before trying to find her a forever home.

Animal Law CLE Enters Fourth Year

Animal Law CLE Enters Fourth Year

 

For the fourth year in a row, the UALR William H. Bowen School of Law will serve as host for the Practical Animal Law continuing legal education program. Registration from the event, which will be held April 13, will benefit the Humane Society of Pulaski County and the Central Arkansas Rescue Effort for Animals (CARE).

“Whether advising clients on ways to assure that their dependent friends are taken care of adequately in the event of their own death or disability, or addressing issues of legal liability, or any of dozens of developing subjects, the lawyer faces many challenges in this area,” said Professor Emeritus Morell Mullins. “Our program offers cost-effective, quality continuing legal education to the bar.”

Attorneys can receive six hours CLE credit, including one hour ethics credit. The day-long CLE program will cost $75 for attorneys and $60 for non-attorneys or attorneys who are not seeking CLE credit.
