Volunteers Rescue 108 Abused Dogs From Breeding Farm

Published by:

An extraordinary rescue campaign called Operation Cavalier Rescue in the U.S. has led to the rescue of 108 lucky pups (most of them Cavalier King Charles Spaniels) from a puppy mill auction in Missouri.

The dogs, many of which needed medical attention, will be distributed to foster homes, where they will receive the medical and psychological evaluations they need before being distributed to forever homes.

Read on for more information about this gripping story!

More info: operationcavalierrescue.org | Facebook | cavalierrescueusa.org (h/t: mashable)

A heartless breeder was attempting to sell all these poor dogs to puppy millers

Many were blind or deaf from infections and covered in fleas and their own waste

Operation Cavalier Rescue started raising money to buy them out from a breeders’ auction held on Nov. 22

The campaign raised hundreds of thousands of dollars from contributors all over the world

“Auctions are not a place for people who see dogs as pets,” according to the campaign’s organizers.

“Auctioneers rattle off a dog’s qualities to attract bidders, shouting things like ‘this one’s in heat, she’s in heat folks!’ or, ‘this is a young female—she’s ready to go to work for you’ and ‘she’s pregnant, that’s money in the bank.’”

The volunteers’ goal was to leave no Cavalier behind, and they succeeded – all of the dogs were bought out

96 Cavaliers, 7 Shiba Inu, 2 Cocker Spaniels, 1 Shih Tzu, 1 French Bulldog and 1 Yorkshire Terrier were rescued for a total of 108 dogs

MTV Brazil Website Redesign

Published by:

MTV Brazil Website Redesign
MTV Brazil Website Redesign

It’s fascinating to see the design direction that most big content-centric sites are following resulting in a simplified look and feel with more white space and big images. A good example of this is the personal project that Paulo Rogerio Ziolle Junior put together for the redesign of the MTV Brazil website. Check it out and let us know what you think.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been analyzing web sites that are portals with content related to music, MTV caught my attention because of its content, so I decided to design it as if it would be on my way. It’s all in Portuguese, sorry about that. ;(

For more information about Paulo Rogerio, visit http://www.pauloz.com.br/

MTV is known worldwide for its close relationship with the music and everything that is related to it. The website does not serve simply to publicize the program or display video clips, Youtube exists for a reason.
The focus should be on quality content.

Australian Bat Rescue Clinic Demonstrates How to Swaddle Baby Bats So That They Look Like Burritos

Published by:

Trish Wimberley, the Director of The Australian Bat Clinic and Wildlife Trauma Centre (previously) in South East Queensland, demonstrates how to swaddle infant flying foxes, making them look just like “baby bat burritos”. These adorable bats were orphaned when their mother died due to an extreme heat wave that hit the area. According to the clinic, the bats need a lot of care while they are young, but will be released into the wild once they are old enough to survive on their own.

When a bat mother dies, often their young are still attached and will not survive without the right care. Bat carers play a vital role in not only retrieving suffering bats, but rehabilitating them until they can be released back into the wild. When baby bats first enter rehabilitation it can be traumatising for them as they have just been separated from their mothers to which they have formed strong bonds. Bat carers have to ensure that the baby bats not only are well fed, but that they are nurtured and feel safe in their temporary new home. Providing affection to the bats is a necessity. The teats represent their mother’s nipple, and this makes them feel more comfortable, as does the security of the blankets which they are often snugly wrapped in. The bats will remain at the Australian Bat Clinic until they are old enough to be released.

The clinic rescues thousands of baby bats every year, which can get a bit expensive.

Trish Wimberley looks after hundreds of orphaned baby bats and rears them until they can be released into the wild. It’s a tireless, never ending job which keeps her awake all hours (she apparently went 3 nights without sleeping once). A typical day may include feeding (the food is about $1000 a week), health checks, doing their laundry (the dryer and washing machine electricity bill costs up to $8000 every 3 or 4 months!), bat transportation for release — everything they need in order to survive.

Donations are always welcome and can be conveniently made via PayPal.
