Summer TV Goes To The Dogs

(ANIMAL TV) NEW YORK — Big TV networks have finally decided to get involved and acknowledge that over half of Americans act as guardians to at least one pet. Three radically different shows revolving around dogs will start this summer and show just how much animals have become a significant part of our everyday lives. While one CBS show focuses on the point that there is a lot of work that goes into being a good pet guardian, a film on PBS stresses the benefits of adopting from a dog shelter. Another show on HBO encourages dog adoption, but takes a much different approach. Read on for more of this summer's canine-oriented TV, and how the media could direct the conversation about pets in a positive direction. — Global Animal

Pamela Anderson Against Animal Testing For Tobacco

(ANIMAL TESTING) Pamela Anderson is taking a stand against the FDA's recommendation to test tobacco products on animals.

The FDA's recommendation is highly misguided as rats don't contract the same diseases as humans, and the tobacco companies have used the findings from animal testing to mislead the public and deny the link between smoking and cancer.
