The Liberty County Sheriff's Office and the Houston SPCA seized all of the animals on the property on Jan. 4.
De Waal does not deny that animals can behave aggressively, but he points out that all species have checks and balances when dealing with confrontation, seen in the way chimpanzees develop and use coalitions to return to a balanced order, rhesus monkeys groom each other after a tiff, and bonobos resolve tension and re-establish intimacy through "makeup" sex.
While people tend to anthropomorphize animals by assigning them human characteristics and behavior, researchers like de Waal cast light on the animal-like characteristics within us. Such insights inspired UI sociology professor Alison Bianchi to create the first-year seminar "Group Processes: It's Not For People Only," which considers the similarities between human and animal social behavior—including what this might say about humankind, as well as the universality of all living creatures.

This work also provided me a way to explore how we as a westernized culture mediate animal images and forms into products of decoration, entertainment and play as typified through lawn ornaments, masks and plush or plastic figures. We alter animal forms in perverse and removed manners, no longer building totem poles or objects of reverence but rather, saving money in ceramic piggy banks, bathing with rubber duckies and using plaster elephant bookends.We are committed to promoting responsible pet ownership, preventative health care and health-related educational opportunities for our clients.

They had me take her back to the "exam room" for the blood draw, then we waited in the lobby for the results, didn't take very long. Petmeds called and said there was a problem and I had to talk with the vet, then get back to them to fill the medication. I spoke with a Vet at Animals R Us, and he just explained that my dog was heavier than the meds i had ordered, so I ok'd the bigger dose. He was professional and friendly. It was then that I was informed about the $10.00 fee for the service.Please take a moment to contact us today, to learn more about our veterinary practice and to find out more information about how Animals R Us can serve the needs of you and your cherished pet. Rabies is a dangerous virus that infects animals and humans worldwide. The virus is generally fatal in all species, and any warmblooded animal can become infected. Foxes, skunks, coyotes, and certain rodents are implicated in many cases of exposure. Surprisingly, cats are more commonly involved in transmission of rabies than dogs. In fact, cats are the number-one domestic animal carrier of rabies in the United States.
