finding homes forever is a great thing," Myers said.
while East C.A.N. works to find stray or abandoned animals homes year-round, they
really step up their efforts when they know the weather could be deadly for
these furry friends.
That's something great about East C.A.N.,"
Myers said. "Especially when it gets colder they're looking for those dogs that are just
chained up and they're offering to those neighbors something to keep the dogs
warm or if they're looking for a foster home for those dogs and then to find a
forever home for those dogs."
And while East C.A.N.'s mission to bring more and more animals out of the cold

Houston brother will be his own attorney in court
June 18, 2013 13:02 GMT
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Roane County man will face federal gun violation charges next month without an attorney.
The Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/17VlXpM ) reported Rocky Joe Houston will represent himself on a charge of possession of a gun by a felon.
The charge came after Houston earlier represented himself in state court on charges stemming from a police chase. He was convicted of evading arrest and reckless endangerment.
Houston and his brother, Leon Houston, were tried, but not convicted, in the 2006 shooting deaths of a Roane County deputy and his ride-along companion.
In federal court, Rocky Joe Houston is claiming the officer who charged him with the felony had no legal authority.
