It is with deep sorrow that we share news about a wonderful wolf. Zephyr passed away today; he was 11 years old. Our hearts are broken, and we know many of you will be hurting too. 💔 Rest in peace, Zephyr. We’ll never stop loving you. ➡ nywolf.org/2022/07/rest-in-p…

Kentucky folks! Can you adopt a pet in Louisville this weekend to save a life? (And if not, would you pass it along?)
Within 48hrs, they will have to start euthanizing animals. If you have wanted to adopt a pet, now is the time to help out! Adoption fees have been waived. louisvilleky.gov/government/… courier-journal.com/story/ne…

And now to feel the sting of another disheartening ruling by the Supreme Court on West Virginia v. EPA, striking a blow to efforts to slow climate change that has left me down but not out. Photo by @GettyImages (1/4)

Just look at his sweet little face! 😍 He is in Olympia, WA. But he could move.
Just last week, Max and 6 other dogs arrived at KHS as transfers from an overcrowded shelter in Olympia. Now, Max is looking for a second chance. At 12-years-old, this senior sweetheart is looking for a home where he can spend his golden years. Adopt: kitsap-humane.org/adopt/avai…

A highly pathogenic avian flu has decimated Europe & Canada's nesting seabirds—raising concerns for eastern US populations. “We're facing kind of an evolving threat & it just doesn't seem very predictable at the moment,” says @projectpuffin's @don_e_lyons. bit.ly/39Wvg0P
