    Karma Rescue was in the news recently regarding a custody battle over a dog. It appears they adopted a dog out to a new family when they knew the original family was looking for it. Coincidentally (or not) the original family is a low-income single mother living in a Hispanic part of town, and Karma's adopters are overwhelming wealth west siders. A story ran in the LA times http://articles.latimes.com/2014/mar/03/local/la-me-0304-banks-lost-dog-20140304 and a very thoughtful, insightful blog post was shared by a well-respected animal rescuer http://www.swaylove.org/what-gives-rescue-an-undeserved-bad-reputation-is-the-sweeping-judgement-of-some-involved-participants. There are so many wonderful rescue groups who help low-income people care for and keep their pets, it seems like one of those groups could really benefit from your help :( Just thought you should know who GOOD is aligning itself with.

    This is so neat. I love seeing programs where you can see the immediate benefit to a cause. I can't wait to hear about the progress of the site and how it helps the shelter in the long term.
