Chihuahua Fix
Tuesday, November 06, 2012
If you’re a regular Daily Journal reader, you’ve heard me yipping about Chihuahuas and you know the situation. PHS/SPCA and other Bay Area open admission shelters have been inundated with Chihuahuas. Reasons for this trend include: “backyard breeders” breed dogs for profit; people don’t spay/neuter ...

What happens to pets when their humans can’t get along with each other and file for divorce?  Sadly, the family pet is somewhere between a couch and a child in legal terms.  Pets are considered property, legally speaking; their value is based on what someone paid for them or, in some cases, what they can earn. ...

Cat Coach

If you are among the few thousand cat owners who have called the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA’s free Behavioral Helpline seeking advice in recent years, odds are you spoke with our volunteer, Marilyn,

Dog Bite
Monday, October 15, 2012
The San Mateo County Ordinance defines bite as an animal’s tooth or teeth breaking skin.  According to national stats and by local accounts, the great majority of victims are bitten by a dog they know.

Hands on Our Buns
Monday, October 01, 2012
I’m going down the bunny trail again.  Last week, I wrote about big buns; specifically, why we like them. This weekend, noon to 4 pm both days, we’re showing our love for buns of all sizes. Slide both of your cheeks in for our first annual “Get Your Hands On Our Buns” Rabbit Adoption Extravaganza. 

Big Buns
Monday, September 24, 2012
We like big buns…and we cannot lie. Yeah, I know. A famous rapper “sampled” this line from us and made it something less tasteful.  Let me explain why we like ‘em big when it comes to bunnies 

Monday, September 17, 2012
Time for what’s become a bi-annual myth-busters column. You know the officers you see driving animal control trucks and vans throughout the county? People assume they’re government employees, but they are actually employees of the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA, a private non-profit. 

Myth Busters
Monday, September 10, 2012
You have a dog or cat you love dearly. A true companion who’s been the center of your life for years.  Then, you met that special two-legged someone, which changed the relationship with your pet.  In some ways, this was positive, as it meant your pet had two favorite humans who loved her dearly. 

Bring Your Dog to Work
Monday, September 03, 2012
Here’s one for Labor Day. Bring your dog to work. If your company doesn’t allow this, you might have more than a whisker’s chance of changing that. Those of us at PHS/SPCA with...
