Need a calendar? Cops and their rescue dogs

The Voice For The Animals Foundation has put out a 2013 calendar featuring LAPD officers with their own rescue animals. Proceeds of calendar sales go for medical treatment, food and shelter for animals. Chief Charlie Beck is on the cover of the calendar with his wife and their rescue dog, Handsome. Beck talked to Patt Morrison at KPCC.

There’s nothing cops like more than kids, expect for maybe animals. There’s a incredible amount of police officers that end up rescuing animals that they see during their daily work activity ...

Animal cruelty is definitely a gateway to violence. All you have to do is look at people who have a past history of abuse of animals, and that will translate to how they treat human beings. Particularly in the extreme cases, serial killers almost always start with animal cruelty.
