Have the recent animal stories in the news been dragging you down?  A few weeks ago, the buzz was about a stray pit bull shot in the face by police. Days later, it was the poodle allegedly smashed in the head by a neighbor for trespassing.  After that, we saw a report about a squirrel in Menlo Park that tested positive for West Nile Virus....

Response to Strays
Monday, July 16, 2012
Again this week, my topic comes from a Daily Journal reader who wrote in response to an awful situation in Menlo Park last Sunday.  A seven-month-old dog escaped from his property and was reported to have threatened people enough that they called the local police department. ...

Running with Your Dog
Monday, July 09, 2012
This week’s tip comes from a Daily Journal reader who spotted a woman jogging with her Chihuahua last weekend. The dog was overweight and his little legs were having trouble keeping up. While my tipster silently applauded the jogger’s effort to get her dog in shape, she felt the outing was obviously...

Found Pet
Monday, July 02, 2012
Once or twice every year, I write about lost pets, focusing on steps owners can take to avoid this awful situation or go about finding a lost pet.  But, I’m not sure I’ve ever covered this topic from the angle of the person who finds a lost dog and would very much like to keep him....

Humane House
Tuesday, June 26, 2012
Parents seeking novel (and free!) summer break activities for kids can add this to their list: visit the Humane House at PHS/SPCA.  This interactive learning space on the second floor of our Center for Compassion at 1450 Rollins Road in Burlingame, resembles a tricked-out kids’ clubhouse....

Poop DNA
Monday, June 18, 2012
f you are the kind of owner who leaves behind your dog’s poop pile every now and then, your days could be numbered. You could be outed, CSI-style. Property managers, homeowners associations, condos and apartment complexes across the nation tired of seeing uncollected...

Dog Parks
Monday, June 11, 2012
With summer around the corner, please consider this dog park etiquette. If your dog is a pup, avoid parks until he has received all his shots.  And, if you’ve recently adopted a dog, don’t overwhelm her with a trip to the park too soon.  Never visit a park on your way home from the shelter. ...

Lost Pets
Friday, June 01, 2012
A friend sent me a frantic text last Wednesday night after 10 pm. Her mom’s dog got out after dinner and the entire family was wreck fearing the worst.  My friend asked if there was a number she could call that night to see if we found their dog.  I explained that there is no number...

Spay or Neuter
Monday, May 28, 2012
We believe a humane society should make it easy for people to do the right thing. It’s why our adoption fees are so low; they don’t come close to covering the amount of care, training, food, vaccinations and other veterinary treatment and behavioral work an animal receives prior to adoption.  

Junior Volunteers
Monday, May 21, 2012
This time of year we begin receiving calls from parents looking into volunteer opportunities for their kids. Many are seeking a meaningful experience for a child who’s demonstrated an interest in animals, while some are simply looking to fill a week between summer camps.
