You think dogs have it bad here? For decades the method of disposal / euthanasia in Ethiopia, where 750,000 homeless animals roam in an environment without spaying and neutering, has been to drop them into a deep pit. Guest DR ANTENEH ROBA was instrumental in closing the pit, but there are 5 surviving beautiful sweetheart dogs rescued from the pit who are on their way to Houston NEEDING IMMEDIATE ADOPTION while Ethiopia and Africa need help addressing homeless animal problems. The enslaved horses of New York City’s carriage industry need liberating from their squalid lives and dangerous work – running through Manhattan traffic, endangering themselves and people. TERESA D’AMICO of the Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages tells us what we can do. And what’s the best thing about our health care system? Avoiding it! DR STEVE BLAKE, author and doctor of holistic health with degrees in naturopathic medicine and herbal medicine, has suggestions. (He speaks at World Veg weekend at Golden Gate Park Sept 29 / 30 – see www.sfvs.org).
