Pig ears with salmonella risk recalled
WASHINGTON (AP) — An Illinois company is recalling pet chews made of pig's ears because they could be contaminated with salmonella.
One illness, to a dog in Missouri, has been linked to the chews, called Pig Ears for Pet Treats. The product is being recalled by the Keys Manufacturing Co. Inc. of Paris, Ill.
Salmonella can affect animals, and there is risk to people from handling contaminated pet products.
The bacteria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, elderly people and those with weakened immune systems. Symptoms include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Pets with salmonella may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea fever and vomiting.
The pet treats were distributed in Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Virginia.
Consumers can return the pet treats to the place of purchase for a full refund.
Can anyone help?

Subject: Blind & Deaf Kitty Under House
There is a blind kitty under my house. He is gorgeous. I am pretty sure he is deaf too. He is not skinny. I know he is blind because his eyes have that glaze, and when he walks he puts his paw out to guide himself to figure out where he is going. I feed him day and night, fresh water, etc. When I call him, he does not hear, but he CAN feel movement, and he runs further under my raised home. I do not believe he runs because he is feral, but because he is scared (deaf, cannot see, lost). He is as comfortable as possible. My neighbor, Viviana, has put a makeshift bed under the house to keep him comfortable as there are many big boulders and gosh knows what underneath my raised house. Prior to this "bed" we made, i.e., a box, he was perched atop pipes, etc. I can tell he is very lonely, scared, etc. I believe that there is no way possible that this angel could have lived this long as a feral. I believe he is someone's cat. Someone is grieving over the loss of their kitty. I think he somehow got out the door of his owners. He has been under my house since this past Christmas. Location: Hesper Avenue / Helois Avenue near the Lakefront. I don't want to describe him (his colors and markings). If someone is missing a cat of this description, I want them to provide a picture and advise description.
I hope you will post this. This baby is NOT in the best situation, but the best I can provide.
Thank you so very much.

Darling 11 year old needs a home!
Ok peeps, here we go again. Let's see if we can find this baby a furever home. How can people let a dog go after 11 years is beyond me. Give Jacob a call at the safe haven at 504.392.1601 or just email me. Thanks again you all are great...... Donna > > > Someone called me yesterday and asked me to try to find a home for a senior cocker spaniel. She is a spayed female about 11 years old. She was treated for heartworms about a year ago and has been on heartgard ever since. She probably needs shots, definitely needs grooming (picture was when she was groomed). Not matted, but hair getting long. > > > > Sister had problems with husband and he kicked her out. She asked her brother to care for the dog because her kids were very upset that she was getting rid of the dog. Brother has kept dog for about 5 months, but he is older, alone, has a pit of his own and his father's poodle. Can't afford to care for dog properly. Dog is hard of hearing. Sister has since gotten a house, but no fence. Will bring to shelter if they can't find a rescue. > > > > Please contact me if you can help. I will get you in touch with the man. > > > DSchexnayder@sosurg.com,
Donations needed for animals affected by Tuscaloosa area Tornado
The Humane Society of West Alabama is assisting victims of the tornado in the Tuscaloosa, AL area. They contacted us today asking we help them network. They are in dire need of DRY kitten, adult cat, and puppy food (they currently have none & demand is high). They've gotten large shipments of adult dog and that's mostly what the public is donating also. They pulled all the kittens and a good number of cats from Metro Animal Shelter in Tuscaloosa to make room for the storm animals.
Since we are in New Orleans, we are asking everyone to please share this note so it can reach people closer to Tuscaloosa. I also read on their facebook page they need flea/tick shampoo and preventative, collars, leashes, bowls. ONLY DRY FOOD PLEASE. Puppy and kitten food, senior food, large breed food, toy breed food, gallon size zip lock bags, leashes, collars, bedding, bowls for cats and dogs, water jugs, plastic containers for food/items.
Humane Society of West Tuscaloosa, 3201 Main Ave (near McFarland Blvd), Northport, AL, 35476.
Maigen Sullivan is the contact and her number is 205-310-6638. Hours are 10-5
They can get mailed donations also (USPS, UPS, & FedEx are delivering). OR go towww.humanesocietyofwa.org and click the donate button on the home page.
We can personally vouch for this group. We worked with them in 2005-2006 with Maddie's Fund. Also we're in touch with some of their volunteers on the ground now.
