Rocky, a 3-year-old Shih Tzu-Yorkie mix, was one a handful of pets that received their blessings on Sunday — and a bag of doggie treats. Several dog and cat owners arrived at the Center for Spiritual Living in La Crescenta with their pets or photographs of their animals to be blessed by the Rev. Beverly Craig, the Rev. Steven Van Meter or practitioner Laney Clevenger-White. Nora Barsuk, 61, of Glendale, brought a picture of Rocky, adopted from the Glendale Humane Society.

The Southern California Veterinary Medical Assn. hosted its annual rabies vaccination at Fire Station 28 on Oct. 11. ?We hold this event once a year,? said Maria Maldonado, license investigator for the city of Glendale. With the fire station graciously offering the use of their driveway for the rabies clinic, the two licensed veterinarians began their work. Whether dealing with feisty cats or snappy dogs, the vets tried their very best to get the job done quickly and painlessly ?

Glory be!! At last I have common ground with Bob Tanabe! I commend him for his concern for the well-being of pets affected by Hurricane Katrina, and for bringing to our attention our local agencies helping to care for some of these animals. It is estimated that nearly 500,000 cats and dogs were directly impacted by the hurricane, and untold hundreds (probably thousands) have been left to die a slow, miserable death in the heat of the Gulf Coast. The heroes are the many volunteers from animal rescue agencies such as Best Friends, ASPCA, Alley Cat Allies, HSUS and Noah's Wish, and I urge you to visit their websites for information about how you can help and for reports of rescues and reunions of pets with owners.

The first-ever crowd-sourced bill was approved this week by the state Assembly with a 72-0 vote. The process to put together “wiki bill” AB1520 was thought up by Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake) and came to fruition by opening it up for anyone to edit online. The bill would give pet owners new measures to provide for their pets once an owner passes away, including not immediately putting an animal to sleep. “Too often, special-interest groups draft legislation behind closed doors, keeping the public in the dark,” Gatto said in a statement.

Aggie is a 10-year-old white-and-brown Boxer/German shepherd mix. She's very friendly and enjoys attention. She does have arthritis so a calm home would be great for her. Her normal adoption fee is $125; however, she does qualify for our “Seniors for Seniors” program in which her adoption fee is waived for adopters 60 years old and older. Aggie's adoption fee includes her spay surgery, a microchip, the first set of vaccinations, as well as a free follow-up health check at a participating vet. New adopters will receive a complimentary health-and-wellness exam from VCA Animal Hospitals, as well as a goody bag filled with information on how to care for your pet. Ask an adoptions counselor for more information during your visit.

When James and Lynnette Hamada of north Glendale found the lifeless body of their beloved 85-pound black Labrador retriever named Bubba in their hillside neighborhood, they feared that the culprit could be a mountain lion. The attack apparently happened about 3 a.m. Friday, Dec. 27, on Rimcrest Drive, near Canonwood Drive, said Bubba's owners, James and Lynnette Hamada. They found Bubba on Saturday afternoon in a neighbor's side yard with a dead rabbit lying on their dog's lifeless body.

A bobcat was spotted walking toward the wash near Rosemont and Mayfield avenues in Montrose Wednesday morning, a day after officials from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife held a meeting informing La Crescenta residents how to avoid and handle potential encounters with wild cats, coyotes and bears. By the time Crescenta Valley Sheriff's deputies arrived on scene on Wednesday, however, the cat was gone. Tuesday's public meeting - a joint project of wildlife officials and the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's station - was spurred by the death of a pet dog named Bridgett, who was killed in late November by a mountain lion in a La Crescenta backyard.
