Angel of altruism: Where supermarkets saw trash; one man saw an opportunity
Just because it’s unsellable doesn’t mean it’s inconsumable. Far from it, judging by the life work of John van Hengel.

Volunteers set tails Wagging: County animal control makes adoption top priority
Here’s a bit of dog-pound math. Maricopa County Animal Care and Control has two shelters – one in west Phoenix and one in Mesa. Both rely on a total of some 400 volunteers to help care for and find homes for the nearly 56,000 dogs and cats taken in every year.
