'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Spay Day

World Spay Day is Feb. 26, and it serves as a reminder that nearly 70,000 puppies and kittens are born every day in the United States.

Where do these animals find a home? Unfortunately, many do not and find themselves on the street, in shelters or euthanized because of overpopulation.

Animal Protectors of Allegheny Valley would like to encourage everyone with unaltered pets to get them spayed or neutered. Female dogs usually have two heats a year (generally spring and fall) and can start cycling at 6 months. Female cats can come into heat every two to three weeks.

Please don't wait. Not only does spaying and neutering reduce the number of unwanted animals, but studies show that these services enhance a well-loved pet's health and quality of life. Spayed and neutered pets live longer and have fewer incidences of cancers.

Call your veterinarian or a local, low-cost spay/neuter clinic to provide this important service for your beloved pet. Only you can help your pet live a longer, healthier life.
