Adoption and DNA

"Assembly Bill 2949 will move to the
Senate for consideration. Please visit The ASPCA Press Room to read more about it! Thank God there is Hope for these innocent cats and dogs who need a loving home. Do you have room in your home for a loving dog or cat who can bring so much love to you? Please visit your local ASPCA affiliated adoption center today and see where your heart takes you! I feel very badly about people who have never experienced the unconditional love of a pet. Now more than ever, the have a chance to experience---perhaps for the first time the JOY of a Cat or Dog Here's where you can learn about the Bill:"

"A new DNA test can not only tell you what your mutt is made of but also what health problems he may risk.

Piper was discovered at the Cleveland APL about eighteen years ago. He's an old dog and we think he may be a mix of Scottish Deer Hound and Lab. But we could never be sure until now.

Piper's DNA is being analyzed by the Wisdom Panel DNA test. It will not only tell me what's in his breed mix, it will also identify 316 genetic markers.

From a small blood sample, veterinarian Carol Osborne says the test can determine what Piper is from 134 breeds recognized by the American Kennel Club."
