Women Have A Few Things To Say About Disgraced Dudes Rejoining Hollywood

Some things have changed, says actor Alyssa Milano. “I used to joke that whenever there was an animal on set there would be someone from the Humane Society [there] … but women are made to get totally naked with not one protection mechanism anywhere. I think all of that is going to totally change.” – Variety

The PACT Act hopes to ban animal cruelty at the federal level

Even though it has been a federal crime to create and distribute animal torture videos for nearly a decade, the actual act of animal torture has not been banned at the federal level. Now, Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) and Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-Fla.) are trying to change that with the re-introduction of the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act (PACT Act). If passed, the PACT Act would prohibit “intentional acts of crushing, burning, drowning, suffocating, impaling or otherwise subjecting animals...

Animal Advocates Say Vicious Dogs Are Often Neglected

Pro-animal groups are reading over new legislation that would strengthen laws regarding dangerous dogs and their owners. Those advocates say, if the state is going to address vicious dog attacks, then it must add another topic into the conversation. Corey Roscoe with the Humane Society of the United States says dogs are being neglected by being tied or chained up for days on end without proper care. “They’re socially isolated, they get bored, they might suffer injuries from being out in the elem...

How cities took the lead in a new statewide law requiring pet stores to sell shelter animals only

The era of pet stores selling backyard-bred puppies was already waning in California as cities began banning the practice several years ago. Now, a statewide law that took effect Jan. 1 is expected to cover all the rest, making sure that any dog, cat or rabbit purchased at pet stores come from animal shelters or nonprofit rescue groups and not from any so-called puppy-mills. An adoptable female cat named Lightning waits for some attention in her multi-tiered enclosure at the Pet Food Express...

We’re suing California to fix state’s broken labor laws

Are California business owners who unintentionally make a payroll error equivalent to the worst perpetrators of hate crimes? It seems silly to even ask the question. Yet that’s the twisted logic that, more than a decade ago, led the state Legislature to pass a harmful law called the Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA). This week, my organization — the California Business & Industrial Alliance — is filing a complaint against the state to try to right this wrong. The facts couldn’t be clearer: Ra...

Cold Choices in the Ugly Part of Town

Across the U.S., the typical "Humane Society" or SPCA building remains an ugly wreck located in a depressing and trash-strewn part of town. The employees there are so over-worked and underfunded, that it's all they can do to keep the killing machine going full-bore.But they manage.Poor infrastructure and poverty-level funding are a commonality to animal shelters across the country. This is what you get when you make a pact with City Government to become a municipality's dog-and cat-killing mach...

The Importance of Sacrifice to Our Careers

I am usually up well before 7:00 a.m. However, due to some issues I have been dealing with, today I decided to sleep a little longer than usual. According to a doctor I recently met at a conference, when you are stressed out the best thing you can do for yourself is to sleep more. He said that cancer, heart problems and other things are often caused by a lack of sleep. I am usually up and about well before 7:00 a.m. and had I been up earlier today, I am confident I would not have seen the bloods...

China Has Postponed Lifting a Ban on Trading Tiger and Rhino Parts for Medicine

(BEIJING) — China is postponing its decision to allow trading in tiger and rhinoceros parts a bare two weeks after the easing of the ban had raised fears the country was giving legal cover to poaching and smuggling of endangered wildlife.

California makes cage-free hens a state law by approving Proposition 12

California voters overwhelmingly approved a measure Tuesday requiring that all eggs sold in the state come from cage-free hens by 2022. Proposition 12 also bans the sale of pork and veal in California from farm animals raised in cages that don’t meet the new minimum size requirements. That means the Golden State’s new rules will apply to farmers nationwide whose eggs, veal and pork are sold in California.

Voters guide to California’s 11 ballot propositions

On Nov. 6, voters will weigh 11 ballot propositions that, on their face, sound no more or less crazy than usual for a California ballot. There is a seemingly obligatory fight about the gas tax and four (!) propositions about housing. Other high-stakes proposals would put money toward water conservation and hospital construction. But, as ever, 2018 also will include propositions that seem aimed at narrower audiences. Should ambulance drivers be on call during meal breaks? It’s on the ballot. Shou...
