The Purr-fect Cat Shelter is holding their Purr-fect Cat Shelter PetWalk this Sunday. Y3K Tutor In Your Home donated our test prep and tutoring services as a fundraiser prize. Please help them with their mission of sheltering homeless animals and finding homes for them.
Arnold Goldstein, Vice President of Y3K Tutor In Your Home recently presented blankets, towels, toys and supplies to the Buddy Dog Humane Society shelter located in Sudbury. Pictured is Goldstein donating a blanket to Chase the dog, Guy the cat (one of the many dogs and cats available for adoption) and Kathy Wozniak, Adoption Counselor. All of the items were from Y3K Tutor In Your Home’s successful 12th annual collection drive for the Buddy Dog Humane Society shelter.

Never leave dogs or children in a parked car. This is true even for a quick errand and even if the windows are cracked open on a warm day.

Teach your kids that if you make a lot of money, put it to use helping others while you are living. That is wealth’s greatest satisfaction.
The Medical College of Wisconsin announced recently that it has ended all animal use in its medical education programs. This is due to the fact that more students are morally objecting to the use of animals in various dissections. The educational dissection models and computer programs have made it so not only can students opt out of animal dissections, but also entire medical schools can do the same. No animals are now used in any of the medical education curriculum at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
“An Act Concerning Dissection Choice” passed the Connecticut Senate this week with a 34-1 vote and now heads to the Governor’s desk! Connecticut will now join 15 other states and the District of Columbia in guaranteeing students their right opt out of animal dissections and to learn through superior and humane alternatives.
Acts of cruelty to animals are symptoms of deep mental problems. Research in psychology and criminology shows that people who commit acts of cruelty to animals don’t stop there. Many of these abusers move on to hurt people as well. According to a Federal Bureau of Investigation profiler, murderers very often start out by killing and torturing animals as kids. Studies have shown that violent and aggressive criminals are more likely to have abused animals as children than criminals who are considered non-aggressive.
