    A dog named Bruce had already suffered a rough life before he arrived at a Los Angeles city kennel. Just last year, a man without a shirt or shoes came to the shelter with Bruce and demanded that he be euthanized. When the shelter politely denied his request, he pulled out a box cutter and slashed the dog’s neck in front of the employees, The Los Angeles Times reported. Bruce’s laceration was six inches, and a veterinarian at the shelter was able to save him. A few months later, an Instagram video shows Bruce sitting in a kennel. “5 year old Bruce, #A1980803, is just done. He doesn’t want to eat treats, he doesn’t want to get up. He is listed as evidence/police. He’s not allowed out of his kennel so he just sits in this concrete cell since 5/26.” View this post on Instagram A post shared by Jenny Hoffman (@operationfreedomwalk) Bruce stayed at the shelter for seven months while the police investigated and sought charges. Bruce was not allowed to go on walks or...
    VIDEO3:1703:17Pet owners forced to make tough decisions as they deal with inflationThe News with Shepard Smith Lisa Spillman can't imagine life without her dog, an 8-year-old chihuahua mix named Rosebud. But she says her household expenses were getting tough to handle. "Everything – rent, groceries, dog food… it's all going really high," Spillman, 52, told CNBC. And she's not alone. According to a new survey conducted by pet care site Rover, the majority of pet parents say they are spending more on their animals than they were six months ago. More than 90% of pet parents in the U.S. say they have noticed an increase in pet-related costs due to inflation, up from 71% who said the same in January, according to the survey. Rover also found that to adjust for increasing prices, pet parents are trading down on things like food, treats and accessories for their dogs.  In some cases, owners have been forced to say goodbye to their furry best friends. Spillman, who lives in Tucson, was forced to move after rent skyrocketed nearly 40%. Her only option...
    Washington, D.C.'s homeless shelters are filling up because Texas Governor Greg Abbott is sending busloads of migrants from his state to the nation's capital, Mayor Muriel Bowser claimed Sunday morning. The D.C. mayor is requesting that Abbott stop preventing migrants from getting to their final destinations. Arizona's Governor Doug Ducey followed Abbott's lead earlier this summer as they both started sending migrants from their respective states to D.C. to take some of the load off of the migration crisis hitting border states. Due to this initiative, homeless shelters in the nation's capital are starting to cap out with these asylum-seekers. 'Well, this is a very significant issue,' Bowser told CBS News Sunday morning program Face the Nation. 'We have for sure called on the federal government to work across state lines to prevent people from really being tricked into getting on buses.' 'I fear that they're being tricked into nationwide bus trips when their final destinations are places all over the United States of America,' she added. Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser blasts Texas and Arizona GOP governors for sending...
    Police say the ex-U.S. soldier accused of murdering the daughter of a former Kentucky lawmaker allegedly studied the sleeping patterns of the family living in the home and targeted the $6.5 million mansion because he believed it had a fallout shelter.  Shannon Gilday, 23, did intense research before allegedly breaking into the home of former state representative Wesley Morgan, 71, on February 22 and shooting and killing his 32-year-old daughter, former Assistant Commonwealth Attorney Jordan Morgan, while she was in bed, according to police.  Gilday's research into Kentucky homes that contained doomsday bunkers led him to Morgan's home in Richmond, Kentucky, that had an elaborate underground shelter, which Wesley Morgan, a Republican, had built when Barack Obama became president, according to an arrest warrant.  A listing for the house shows that it contains a shelter 26 feet underground with a 39-inch solid concrete ceiling and 15-inch walls.  The arrest warrant said notes found in Gilday's apartment by a friend hours after he allegedly killed Jordan Morgan showed that he was researching the home and observing the Morgan family, even tracking their sleeping schedules, WXIX...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Residents of Chinatown are pushing back on a plan to increase the number of homeless shelters in their neighborhood. At issue is a proposed shelter scheduled to open next year on East Broadway. Residents say it will be the sixth shelter in their neighborhood and enough is enough, CBS2’s Dana Tyler reported Monday. The recent killing of Christina Yuna Lee, allegedly by a homeless man, has heightened their concerns. City officials say the new shelter was planned after four homeless men were killed while sleeping on a Chinatown street in 2019. But since that time, anti-Asian crime is on the rise.

A long, cold night awaits David Wywialowski, but the hand warmers he’s carrying aren’t for him. They’re for the people he’ll encounter as he helps the City of Chicago count its homeless population. “They could be in a tent, they might be sitting outside, they might be sitting inside a fast food restaurant, so we’re looking all over for people who are unsheltered,” he said. The annual count is done by 35 teams made up of volunteers for the city, several nonprofits, and homeless outreach groups like The Night Ministry–where Wywialowski works. “From 9pm to 3am the teams will visit homeless encampments throughout the city, to count how many people are sleeping outside,” he said. Prior to that, shelters...

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The pandemic has impacted how animal rescue organizations operate. Many in the industry think the changes are here to stay, and it’s for the best. “Our entire movement thought the worst, which is, ‘Here’s this uncertain time. People are going to surrender their pets. Shelters are going to be flooded with animals,'” said Julie Castle, CEO of the Best Friends Animal Society. READ MORE: New Streaming Service Paramount Plus Launches Wednesday The Best Friends Animal Society operates seven regional programs around the country and have more than 3,200 rescue partners.

Animal welfare groups knew that they would no longer be able to safely have their armies of volunteers come into their shelters every day. The organizations began the uncertain ask of pushing to get animals into foster homes and holding virtual adoptions. As luck would...

    President Donald Trump suggested that he may stop evictions around the nation, saying that people are “thrown out viciously” and it’s not their fault, but “China’s fault” in a news conference Monday night. “I don’t want people to be evicted,” Trump said. “They are evicted, thrown out of whatever the place may been. In many cases, they go to big shelters and if you talk about pandemic, this is a pandemic and they go to shelters. Number one, they’re thrown out viciously; It’s not their fault, it’s China’s fault. It’s not anybody’s fault, it’s China’s fault.” “If they are thrown out, they will often times go to a shelter with tremendous numbers of other people and the virus will spread,” Trump added. “We don’t want that.” On March 18, Trump announced that “The Department of Housing and Urban Development is providing immediate relief to renters and homeowners by suspending all foreclosures and evictions until the end of April.” Cities, like New York City, have extended that timetable but most areas around the United States are now facing high eviction...

    Well here is a story to make you feel a little better about humanity today! On the Fourth of July in Phoenix, Arizona, the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control began an experimental program called “Calming Companions,” where they invited the public into their shelters to sit with the dogs and cats. The loud and constant noise of fireworks being set off over the holiday can be a terrifying ordeal for small animals, and even more so in the cramped conditions of a shelter. Around 200 caring people came out to the event, visiting either of the control’s shelters. These wonderful volunteers brought their own chairs and blankets to sit on as they read, played music, and entertained the dogs. Staff at the shelters provided treats, toys, and games that helped keep the dogs and cats occupied, and the joint effort led to a great experience for everyone involved. Here is what volunteer Amy Engel had to say: “Ever thought about bringing your dog to crowded places? Even worse, crowded places with fireworks? I promise you dogs don’t like it....
    President Donald Trump’s administration is moving to allow single-sex homeless shelters to accept residents on the basis of biological sex and not gender identity, the Daily Caller has learned. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) rule change would adjust a 2016 regulation from President Barack Obama’s administration, which mandated that transgender individuals be given access to single-sex homeless shelters and other facilities for the vulnerable based on their gender identity, a source familiar with the proposed rule told the Daily Caller on Friday. “HUD has reconsidered its 2016 Rule and now proposes a modified rule pursuant to which shelter providers that are permitted by the Fair Housing Act to be single sex facilities, may determine ‘sex’ in accordance with their own policies, which may include consideration of biological sex, in placement and accommodation decisions,” reads a letter sent from HUD to members of Congress regarding the change.
