Mutual Rescue – Josh Marino and Scout

 

 

 

 

 

Mutual Rescue 
A young soldier left the battlefield in Baghdad with traumatic brain injuries and P.T.S.D. after a mortar attack. Right before he was to give up on life, a stray cat walked up to him, placed his paws on his leg and saved his life. Josh Marino is here to tell his story of Mutual Rescue.

China Switches from One-Child to One-Dog Policy 
China may have scrapped its one-child policy, but one Chinese city (Qingdao) has now instituted a one-dog policy! Those who own more than one pooch will be required to surrender their furry friends to an adoption agency. Anyone who violates the rules will be fined the equivalent of $60 US dollars.

Employers Offer Pet Insurance 
There is a new and fast-growing trend for employees being offered by generous companies. It’s employer-sponsored benefit plans that insure the family pet, dogs, cats, ferrets, birds or potbellied pig against accidents and illness. Some 5,000 companies, including Microsoft, Yahoo, Xerox and Hewlett-Packard, now offer pet insurance.

Don’t Use Your Pet’s Name As Password 
When it comes to choosing a password, hopefully you do NOT pick a pet’s name, because that’s easy to hack. A behavioral biometrics company did some research and says the answer to finding a secure password is naming your pet a weird name, something incredibly unique after you do some research of your own. If your password is Max7$, after your cat, you aren’t alone, but you are putting yourself at risk of identify theft and other cyber crimes.

Switzerland Enacts Landmark Legislation for Animals

The Swiss have a long history of improving the working and living conditions for animals including landmark legislation in 1992 when it became the first country to include animal rights in their constitution.
