Nikki Delventhal packed up her Prius, her rescue dog named Camper, and hit the road, embracing homelessness and travel full-time.

Since moving into her car, Delventhal has been trying to make an income as an influencer through a quickly growing YouTube channel and social media presence. She shares all about life on the road with her dog and people can’t get enough.

Acclaimed NYC Fine Dining Restaurant Eleven Madison Park Chooses Sustainability & Goes Meatless; Reopening On June 10th

As New York City restaurants are returning to indoor dining at full capacity, Eleven Madison Park (EMP) plans to mix things up a bit in the kitchen with a healthy compassionate twist. More than one year after closing its doors due to COVID-19, EMP Chef and Co-owner Daniel Humm announced that the acclaimed fine dining establishment will be going meat-free and reopening on June 10th.

“The pandemic brought our industry to its knees. With our closure, we laid off most of our team, and truly didn’t know if there was going to be an Eleven Madison Park,” stated Humm.

“We kept a small team employed, and with their remarkable effort, in collaboration with the nonprofit Rethink Food, we prepared close to a million meals for New Yorkers experiencing food insecurity,” Humm explained, noting that he began to experience “the magic of food in a whole new way” through this

The Fight To Restore Federal Protection For Gray Wolves Intensifies After Devastating Laws Allowing Their Slaughter Are Passed In Idaho & Montana

The Center for Biological Diversity, the Humane Society of the United States, Humane Society Legislative Fund, and Sierra Club recently petitioned the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to restore federal protection for gray wolves under the Endangered Species Act. This follows Idaho and Montana passing legislation aimed at drastically reducing wolf populations.

“Idaho and Montana’s legislative directives to kill wolves by nearly any means possible seriously endanger wolf populations in the West,” Andrea Zaccardi, a senior attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity, said in a statement. “The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service should immediately return Endangered Species Act protections to these wolves to halt the impending statewide slaughters.”

As previously reported by WAN, Idaho’s legislature recently passed Senate Bill 1211, allowing the state to hire private contractors to kill up to 90% of Idaho’s wolf population. It also allows hunters and trappers to kill an unlimited number of wolves,

Family Devastated After Their Lost, Microchipped Puppy Was Adopted By Someone Else

A family in Houston, TX is devastated after their lost puppy was found and turned into a rescue – only to be adopted out to someone else.

According to Click2Houston, the little maltese poodle named Byron had escaped their owner’s yard on New Year’s Eve in 2019, two years after they got him.

The family was devastated and did everything they could to find their missing dog, including marking him as missing on their microchip app and posting on Nextdoor, Ring, and other local platforms.

Despite his microchip being marked as missing, the family was never notified when Byron was found. Instead, the rescue that found him adopted him to another family and wiped his microchip clean!

Grieving Papa Swan Parents His Babies Alone In Heartbreaking Viral Photo

Like most babies, young swans — or cygnets — depend on their mothers for their survival. Mother swans keep their little ones cozy and safe, teach them to find food and swim, and carry them on her back to stay warm until their feathers grow in.

So, when a resident swan sadly passed away in Boston, her untimely death threw the fate of her 6 ducklings in question. Indeed, without their mother to protect them, one cygnet quickly drowned. Another reportedly had to be rescued by animal control.

Fortunately for the surviving cygnets, father swans aren’t slouches, either. Though they traditionally spend time guarding their territory against feathered rivals, these baby swans were lucky to have a doting dad willing to step up and shoulder the parenting duties after his mate passed away.

According to the Charles River Esplanade Association, which maintains the riverfront … Read the rest

Conservation groups and concerned citizens gathered at Crissy Field Beach in San Francisco earlier this week to honor 12 dead whales that have washed up on shore in the Bay Area so far this year. It is believed that at least four died from ship strikes.

“Dead whales washing up on Bay Area beaches is a wake-up call. We answered that call at this event by demanding action to address ship strikes, entanglement in fishing gear, and climate change,” said Steve Jones with the Center for Biological Diversity, in a statement. “Whales are essential to healthy oceans because they spread nutrients and store carbon. The more we can do to protect them as their populations recover, the better off we will all be.”

The Kitten with the Wrong Name

This story was originally shared on The Animal Rescue Site. Submit your own rescue story here. Your story just might be the next to be featured on our blog!

One fall day while my husband was working in the backyard, he saw a little brown and grey animal dart from its hiding place when he got too close with the edger and run underneath our flower bush. It turned out to be a tiny brown, black and grey tabby.

We already had two rescue cats who were brothers who were quite a bit bigger than this tiny kitten and we were afraid they would kill her, so we set up a nice house for her outside and fed her. We hoped her mom would come back to get her. The mother was not found. We think she did as so many mother cats do… take their weaned kittens on a … Read the rest

Breaking! U.S. Senate Passes Ban On The Shark Fin Trade; Next Step Is To Pass The House Of Representatives

Yesterday, the U.S. Senate passed the Shark Fin Sales Elimination Act (S. 1106), a bill that would ban the buying and selling of shark fins in the United States, as part of a broader legislative package known as the United States Innovation and Competition Act (S. 1260). Similar legislation (H.R. 2811) has been introduced in the House of Representatives and currently has more than 130 bipartisan cosponsors.

“This is a great day for sharks and our oceans,” Whitney Webber, Campaign Director at Oceana said in a statement. “We are now one step closer to officially removing the United States from the shark fin trade.”

Webber applauded Senators Cory Booker of New Jersey and Shelley Moore Capito for their steadfast leadership on this important legislation, and Senators Maria Cantwell, Roger Wicker, and Brian Schatz for their support of the bill during committee markup last month.

“The House already showed its
