Miss Tinkerbelle is the latest California death row dog to be rescued by CAPS, Santa Cruz SPCA and Societé Défense des Animaux! Miss Tinkerbelle weighs just four pounds and is a beautiful young Chihuahua lady. She is currently being vaccinated, micro-chipped and quarantined for her flight to freedom in France...for a LIFE in Provence! Isn't she adorable? And to think that she was dumped in the pound and was going to be euthanized. Now she is safe, thanks to generous donations from people like you. In less than 30 days, she will be packin' her bags and flying to the Riviera, where she will learn to bark in French.
If you would like to donate to fly a dog to safety in France, please go to the CAPS website and make a donation!

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- In San Francisco, where cats and dogs are officially called companions not pets, there is now a proposal to ban their sale.
The Animal Welfare Commission wants to prevent pet stores from selling dogs and cats, as well as smaller animals including hamsters, rats and chinchillas. Banning the sale of dogs and cats in the city is largely symbolic since few stores actually do, but they are selling the small animals and many eventually wind up at city shelters.
