Florida bro, 52-year-old Jay Hamm, is biking across the nation, via his Pedego electric bike, to raise awareness for pet therapy!
He also utilizes his pets, Chibby Choo and K Poppy, for pet therapy as well. The dude rules!
Hamm packed his pups in a custom-built sidecar and rode off from Jupiter Inlet, bound for Huntington Beach, Calif., trailed by a support bus with bedding, coolers, paddleboards and supplies.
His making his trek to raise awareness of the benefits of pet therapy and how dogs help people. The motivation, when his dog comforted his sister, Tamra Williams, who was dying of cancer in 2015.
Both of his dogs are certified for pet therapy and he also launched a non-profit, Paws for Compassion, which he operates under. He brings his dogs to medical facilities in the area and to Tequesta Terrace, an assisted living facility, where he spreads smiles, left and right.
When Hamm returns, he is going to jump behind the wheel of the bus to promote the organization in shuttling dogs to areas of need around Lake Okeechobee.
Hamm’s passion is to serve others and to that, we give this bro, two thumbs up! Keep up the great work!
A still-unidentified man who broke into a Taco Bell for the register cash and stayed for a snack, is now being tied to a previous crime at another Taco Bell as well.
Boynton Beach Police are continuing a search for a man responsible for breaking into the fast food Mexican restaurant in taking register cash and then reaching for a pre-fried tostada shell.
All police have to go off of is video surveillance and numerous body tattoos in trying to recognize the man. The restaurant owner had noticed a loss of profit, as well as a loss in inventory, which prompted the manager to call police.
Per the footage, the man is clearly guilty, so now it’s just a matter of time before he is identified and brought to taco justice.
Five-year-old Jake Nealy pulled up to school in grand fashion with his very own police escort!
It was Nealy’s first day of kindergarten at Crystal Lakes Elementary School in Boynton Beach, Fla., but also one without his father, Sgt. Bill Nealy, of the West Palm Beach Police Department, who died of cancer less than a month prior.
One of his final dying wishes to his fellow officers was to take care of his wife and two children, especially for Jake when he started school.
Jake walked up to his classroom hand-in-hand with his mom, officer Brent Treu and a dozen other officers and first responders, that saw him to his seat and introduced him to his new class and teacher.
“He was a good guy to talk to, a family man,” said Treu. “He would ask me about my wife and my kids and how they’re doing. And him not being here today, it still hurts almost a year later.”
The awesome gesture had all involved in tears, but Jake was all smiles.
An elderly couple in West Palm Beach was just trying to keep their spark alive by enjoying some quality time together in their home jacuzzi when they were slapped in the nostrils with a putrid smell and the sight of the biggest pile of iguana shit they have ever seen. Not wanting to get it on in a “porta-potty”, the elderly couple contacted a local trapper to take care of the problem so they could get back to taking care of business. Aside from the smell and sight, iguana feces tends to contain salmonella and can pose a serious health risk.
Green iguanas have been wreaking havoc in South Florida so much so that Florida Fish and Wildlife authorities have encouraged “homeowners to kill green iguana on their own property whenever possible.” This seems like a great opportunity for those who offered other kinds of exterminations on the now-defunct Silk Road, a dark web site that offered illegal services, to turn over a new leaf and give back to society legally.
