And here's the Wiki on him.
Jennifer Foster of Florence, AZ was visiting Times Square with her husband Nov. 14 when they saw a shoeless man asking for change. She writes, “Right when I was about to approach, one of your officers came up behind him.
The officer said, 'I have these size 12 boots for you, they are all-weather. Let’s put them on and take care of you.’ The officer squatted down on the ground and proceeded to put socks and the new boots on this man.
The officer expected NOTHING in return and did not know I was watching*.
I have been in law enforcement for 17 years. I was never so impressed in my life. I did not get the officer’s name. It is important, I think, for all of us to remember the real reason we are in this line of work. The reminder this officer gave to our profession in his presentation of human kindness has not been lost on myself or any of the Arizona law enforcement officials with whom this story has been shared.”
Our thanks to the Fosters for their attention and appreciation, and especially to this officer, who remains anonymous.

Why not just boycott the parent company brands? Those of us who support organics rarely buy products like Diet Pepsi or Kellogg’s Genetically-Modified-Sugar-Coated Frosted Flakes. The only way to pressure Big Food is to boycott the brands wRead more about the boycott here, where you can "Take Action" with a prepared letter to the parent companies.e actually buy. Brands like Kashi, Naked Juice, Horizon, Silk, Honest Tea and yes, even Ben & Jerry’s.
Let’s be clear. These Big Food companies are gobbling up organic brands to make money and to greenwash the fact that industrial agriculture, factory farms, and their so-called "conventional" brands are undermining public health and destroying the environment and climate stability. They recognize the huge profit potential in the fast-growing organic and natural markets. They want our business. If we stop buying their organic and so-called "natural" brands, they know there’s a good chance we’ll find alternative brands. We might never look back.

The Senior Dogs at Muttville are dreaming about that forever home with someone to snuggle up to. Since November is "Adopt a Senior Pet" Month, why not celebrate with Muttville Senior Dog Rescue? We've got events every weekend, in hopes of finding loving homes for our seniors for the holidays.
Meet your new snuggle partner at www.Muttville.org
AboutMuttville is dedicated to rescuing dogs 7 years & older, and providing medical care and new homes...because it's never too late for a new beginning!MissionMuttville is a nonprofit organization dedicated to changing the way the world thinks about and treats older dogs, aged seven years and older, and to creating better lives for them through rescue, foster, adoption, and hospice.Company OverviewMuttville is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to improving the lives of senior dogs. On a local level, Muttville rescues senior dogs and finds them new homes or gives them hospice. On a global level, Muttville provides information about caring for older dogs and support for people who do.
Through associations with shelters and other animal organizations, Muttville finds senior dogs that have been given up and are not likely to find adopted homes.

Ultimately, Muttville will have its own facility to house dogs that are not yet placed, or that are unlikely to be placed.DescriptionMuttville Senior Dog Rescue....it's never too late for a new beginning!
