Massachusetts Voters Ban Greyhound Racing




With Massachusetts voters finally passing a law to ban the Greyhound racing they will have to close two dog tracks in 2010.

Christine Dorchak of the Committee to Protect Dogs said: Voters looked at the facts. They made a judgment based on the tracks' own information and decided we in Massachusetts could no longer tolerate an industry that causes thousands of dogs to suffer every day.

The general manager of the Raynham Greyhound Park in Raynham Gary Temple said: I feel so sorry for these over 1,000 people who are going to be losing their jobs in an economy that can't see another 1,000 people unemployed.

OK we know that jobs will be lost, but the dogs have suffered long enough just so some one can make a buck off these poor dogs. So we say Thanks to the voters in Mass. for caring about our buddies.

Seniors Retire in Style at HarborPlace ... with Their Pets


Many seniors would like to live in a retirement resort, but do not want to leave their beloved pets behind. Now they don't have to. Small pets, dogs, cats, birds and fish are welcome at HarborPlace at Port St Lucie, a lovely Retirement Resort and Assisted Living Community.

Port St Lucie, FL, November 04, 2008 --(PR.com)-- HarborPlace Retirement Resort and Assisted Living Community has made it easy for seniors to retire without leaving behind their beloved pets... they can move right in together.

Residents of HarborPlace live in lovely yet affordable surroundings while receiving all the personal assistance they need to keep their independence. No evacuations are required in the event of inclement weather. There are no large upfront costs like some retirement communities. It's what they've always wanted: a beautiful, friendly place to live, where someone else does the cooking, cleaning, and maintenance.

Several spacious studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartment plans, some even offering balconies or patios, are available. And all are pet-friendly, so seniors bring their small dogs up to 20 pounds, cats, birds, or fish with them.

Pet care services, such as walking, waste control, vet trips, etc., are available multiple times each day (for a small fee) through Kitten Sittin', Walk the Pooch, Pet Butler, etc. For dog owners' convenience, a new dog waste disposal system was recently installed in the back of the building near the garages. There is a dispenser for bags and a place to put the used bag.
