Responding to Bites
Wednesday, April 20, 2016
I was thinking about this today while stuck in traffic (thanks, San Mateo Bridge rubberneckers!). Most people know what to do when they are involved in a traffic accident. Pull over to a safe spot, exchange phone and insurance information with the other motorist/s, jot down the make, model and license plate of the other vehicle, and if there is any doubt as to fault, contact the police to help sort matters.  How about a dog bite or attack?

March Madness
Monday, March 14, 2016
Some of our adoption promotions are tailor made. Take our St. Pitty's Day celebration, for example.  Around this time last year, we turned St. Patrick's Day into St. Pitty's Day, and waived adoption fees for – you guessed it -- ...

On time, under budget.  One doesn’t often hear those words associated with big construction projects.  But, if you picked up the Daily Journal last Wednesday, you likely noticed the front page ...

I’m a day late for this special, Oscars edition of my weekly pet tip column. But, since Hollywood writers are just now writing their post-mortems about last night’s big show, ...

Kitty Litter Box

Anyone have an old claw foot bathtub to donate?  We’re seeking one for a new interactive display inside the Peninsula Humane Society’s Humane House, the walk-in miniature house on the second floor of our Center for Compassion. ...
