December 22, 2009, Huntington, NY - Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center www.littleshelter.com, one of Long Island's oldest no-kill shelters dedicated to saving all companion animals in need, announced today a Holiday Donation Drive.  Little Shelter is under financial pressure and must cut back on services for needy animals due to a 30% decrease in donations, the 2009 closing of two Long Island shelters (Bide-A-Wee in Wantagh and Animal Haven in Flushing), and the bad economy, unemployment and foreclosures causing more animals to be surrendered to the shelter. Without holiday donations, Little Shelter will be forced to cut back on medical care for its 400 cats and 50 dogs and will reduce essential community animal care services.

Web Site to Evaluate Dog Training Methods: What Its Advocate Founder Is Trying to Do and Why

ALBANY, N.Y., Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The first anyone realized that dogs may have Mary Beth Close on a short leash -- rather than the other way around -- was 41 years ago. After a huge winter snowstorm, the traumatized five year old didn't go out skating and sledding with her friends. Rather, she pleaded with her parents to round up the homeless dogs that she feared might freeze. (Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20061214/NYTH104 ) Close, along with respected industry experts, has launched http://www.caninekingdom.com/, a Web site devoted to separating fact from fiction about dogs.

"Much of the information out there is a collection of hype, opinions and myths, and we will separ... (more)

Pancreatic Cancer Action Network Opposes Sequestration Cuts To National Institutes Of Health & Cancer Research Grants

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif., March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is calling attention to the potential affects sequestration will have on medical research, and specifically pancreatic cancer research. The onset of sequestration could lead to significant and harmful cuts to the budget of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI), which will affect cancer research grants.  According to some estimates, medical research supported by the NIH would be cut by an estimated $1.5 billion, including more than a $250 million reduction in cancer research funding in 2013 alone. In total, these cuts could lead to 1,380 fewer research grants being funded next year.   (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20111004/LA79914LOGO) For the nation's deadliest cancers, such as pancreatic cancer, where the need for scientif...
