Augies Doggies Rescue
At 12 years old, Augusta Delisi decided she wanted to help dogs. On her 13th birthday, instead of presents for herself, Augusta asked for Parvo disinfectant. She then donated the disinfectant and other supplies she received to a local animal shelter. Now today, at 15, she has her own all breed rescue called Augies Doggies dedicated to save the lives of animals who would otherwise be euthanized in animal shelters.

Many people, including animal lovers, do not realize that declawing is a surgical procedure in which the animal's toes are amputated at the last joint. A portion of the bone, not just the nail, is removed. Declawing may result in permanent lameness, arthritis, and other long-term complications. The practice, although common in the United States, is rarely performed in the rest of the civilized world. It is actually illegal in many countries.
