Homeless, but Not Hopeless

Local organizations help homeless pets and their owners

Animals can be a huge source of comfort and companionship for the homeless, and it is an incredibly simple act to grab an extra bag of kibble the next time you're at the grocery store and to drop it of at a food bank on the way home.

Fiona Apple cancels tour to take care of dying dog

Fiona Apple isn’t exactly known for her most well-grounded moments. You can look at her meltdown at Roseland Ballroom in 2000, or her ever-famous speech at the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards where she stated, “This world is bullshit,” or most recently, her marijuana bust that landed her in jail in West Texas during her most recent tour.

Regardless, the singer-songwriter has garnered a massive, cult following, and the release of her latest record, The Idler Wheel is Wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More than Ropes Will Ever Do, has further cemented a fanbase that remains loyal and somewhat protective.

In recent news, Apple has postponed a South American tour that was scheduled to kick off on Nov. 27, and before fans can shout with fury or start sending heinous letters to her press rep, they should know that Apple is cancelling the tour to nurse her soon-to-be-no-longer-with-us pit bull, Janet.

Apple posted a heart-wrenching letter to her Facebook page that notes the loving relationship she’s fostered toward her canine pal over 14 years, and points out the necessity to choose love and hope over vanity.

In the letter Apple writes, “If I go away again, I’m afraid she’ll die and I won’t have the honor of singing her to sleep, of escorting her out. Sometimes it takes me 20 minutes to pick which socks to wear to bed.

“But this decision is instant. These are the choices we make, which define us. I will not be the woman who puts her career ahead of love and friendship.”
