Spay DayIDA's Hope Animal Sanctuary Gives Mississippi Another Spay/Neuter Day

Thanks to your support, IDA's Hope Animal Sanctuary (IDA-HAS) in Grenada, Mississippi held yet another spay/neuter day last week, in conjunction with Mississippi State University. Thanks MSU! We spayed 8 adult female dogs, 9 juvenile females, and neutered 3 juvenile males.

The dayHope Animal Sanctuary spayed dog Nicholina and adopters, Eva was packed with excitement as our Hope Animal Sanctuary staff were called to an unrelated dog rescue during the surgeries, somehow managing to handle both. It's been a week of rescue and healing.

Pictured here is Nicholina, one of the dogs spayed that day, with her adoptive family, the Evaldis, long time supporters of IDA-HAS who've now adopted four IDA dogs.

CowMeat Consumption Per Person Dropping In United States

Two recent industry studies confirm that meat consumption in the U.S. per person is on a downward trend. 2010 was the fourth year in a row that meat consumption has declined in the United States and the fifth decline within a six-year period. 2011 is expected to continue this good trend for animals.

The Elephant In The Living RoomMust See Film: The Elephant In The Living Room

IDA has been urging you to avoid some movies this year because they featured elephants and other wild animals who are cruelly trained and confined. But here’s an award-winning film about wild animals that we highly recommend: The Elephant In The Living Room. This powerful feature-length documentary examines the subculture of exotic animal "owners" and dealers in the U.S., providing a behind-the-scenes look that is both deeply touching and disturbing. The Elephant In The Living Room is one of the most compelling and enlightening movies ever made about keeping exotic animals as “pets,” a cruel practice that is rampant in the U.S. despite serious animal welfare and human safety problems. If you can't find the film in a theater near you, you can watch a clip from it and order a copy on DVD or Blu-Ray. Share it with friends or arrange a special screening to educate people about this important, often overlooked issue.
