Jane Lynch Hosted Bark Business Benefit For K9s For Warriors

Filed under: GleeJane LynchCharityDogRescueDr. Patrick Mahaney

We LOVE Jane Lynch's passion for helping out the greater good!

This time, Animalfair.com hosted a benefit for the Bark Business Benefit at the Omni Hotel, which helps K9s For Warriors - a fantastic organization that pairs rescued Service Dogs with veteran armed service members who suffer from PTSD.

Thank goodness for Dr. Patrick Mahaney, our favorite vet, getting Jane to come to the event!!

This is just one of the many times Jane has worked with K9s For Warriors, and it looks like her Gleeful celeb-status has helped raise at least $145,000 so far, which is enough to pair up 15 service members with doggies!!

UnbeWOOFable! Wanna lend a paw hand?? Then click HERE to donate!!

Check out some more pics (below) from the incredible event!

S.W.A.T. Star & World War II Veteran Steve Forrest Dies At 87

Filed under: TV NewsR.I.P.Sad Sad

steve forrest dies

So, so sad.

S.W.A.T. star Steve Forrest passed away on Saturday at the age of 87 in Thousand Oaks, California.

In addition to his many other roles, the actor, who was surrounded by family in his final moments, most notably spent two years on the 70’s action show as head of the police department’s special weapons and tactical unit.

What’s more, Steve was a World War II veteran, having served at the Battle of the Bulge. Following the war, he studied theater arts at UCLA and was quickly discovered by none other than Gregory Peck himself.

Our thoughts are with his wife, Christine, his three sons, and his grandchildren.

disabled veteran fighting to save service dog web

Wow…it is truly sad how pets get absolutely NO RESPECT when it comes to the law!

Jeremy Aguilar is a military veteran who has fought in both Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as responding to Hurricane Katrina relief with the Oklahoma National Guard.

Aguilar now has his pooch, four year old Dutch, to help him through his disabilities, but unfortunately, the selfishness of one person may sentence this dog to death.

Dutch was left with his former owner while Aguilar and his wife, Heather, drove a friend to the airport. The former owner then began to MERCILESSLY beat Dutch, first punching the dog repeatedly in the face before her hands hurt…then she used a metal pole.

The pooch finally defended himself and bit the owner on the leg and butt….and now Dutch has been labeled a vicious dog and faces euthanasia as the former owner relentless pursues legal action.

The former owner even ADMITTED to

You might recognize this story — we've talked about it before. With the help of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation and its partner, the Gary Sinise Foundation, the house is being completely donated.

Here's what Dominguez said:
