Across the internet this past week (late!)

Sorry I’m late in posting this. I had a busy weekend. So I’m rolling last week and the past couple of days all together for this collection of links to some interesting articles and thought-provoking pieces from across the internet. Don’t miss Lesley’s article about gifting of animals, and also don’t miss Virginia Messina’s articles on the same subject. There’s also a post in here on the new Animal Welfare Blog, which has been quite good so far. The post is well worth reading and thinking about.

Great set of links. That article on the Heifer Project from Lesley Fox was oh-so-necessary.
