Kindergartners scampered around inside a temporary pen Wednesday on the front lawn of Mark Keppel Elementary School. They inhabited the fenced-off area for close to an hour with animals of many shapes, sizes and textures. The visiting creatures were from Giddy Up Ranch in Acton, Calif., a petting zoo that brings animals on visits to schools, state fairs and birthday parties. Keppel kindergarten teachers invited the petting zoo to visit the school to give students an up-close look at animals, teacher Suzanne Buckhoff said.

The music of French composer Charles Camille Saint Saens? Carnival of the Animals was brought to ?puppet life? last week for Mountain Avenue Elementary School kindergarten students. Members of Jim Gamble Puppet Productions performed the musical tale incorporating rod puppets and marionettes for the students who delighted in the fantasy of a young boy who writes a magical musical for an imaginary carnival. The boy envisions his piano teacher, Mrs. Zucchini, as a dancing frog and even brings to life a tinker toy creation to music: The Tinkertoyasaurus.

The faithful at St. George’s Episcopal Church in La Cañada, Montrose’s Holy Redeemer and La Crescenta’s St. James the Less Catholic Churches were among those who focused their spiritual attention and blessings on pets this past weekend. St. Francis of Assisi was a French aristocrat born in 1182 who, after years of taking advantage of his family’s wealth and position, had a life-changing experience while in the military. He turned to ministering to those less fortunate, gave away all his worldly possessions and devoted himself to God. He was recognized for his kindness to those less fortunate, extending to all creatures, and resulting in his being canonized in 1228.

In December 2000, my daughter adopted two cats from the Glendale Humane Society. One, a female, was supposed to be around a year old, but was very tiny, and the other was a male about 7 months old. She was not allowed to take them to our vet in Burbank, and had to leave them to be taken overnight to a local Glendale vet to be spayed and neutered and given their first immunizations and a physical exam. When she picked them up at the Glendale vet, the female had a runny nose and eyes and was sneezing, but was given a clean bill of health.

Students at Valley View Elementary School got to walk on the wild side at a recent Animal Planet assembly held in the school's auditorium. The assembly was not only exciting and interesting but an honor for the school. Through their computer lab teacher, Shelley Owen, students responded to a pledge to help animals. The students were required to promise to "Reach Out, Act and Respond" [ROAR]. Owen helped her students while during their computer lab to sign up on line, then students took the initiative at home to contact family and friends to pledge to ROAR.

Regarding Liz Duvall's letter about having the Glendale Humane Society hire Chrissi Fernandez: I don't think I would go that far. Since Chrissi and her supporters say that they have the best interest of the animals at heart, why don't they help instead of thwarting the efforts of Glendale Humane Society to adopt out the animals, i.e., turning PETCO against us. Also, if they were to volunteer and be foster parents to...

Dogs, cats and even a turtle were blessed and thanked Sunday in the parking lot of the First Baptist Church of Glendale. The Rev. Charles Updike blessed the animals and said a prayer for pets that were present with their owners or foster families. Volunteers from the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA brought dogs awaiting adoption for the blessing. Some participants came without animals but carried photographs of their deceased pets. ?We do the blessing of pets because they are very close to us, and they love us unconditionally like God loves us,?
