PAHS Held Another Yappy Hour!

People and canines alike enjoyed the ambiance, fare, and music at our latest evening Yappy Hour this past Thursday, July 12. The Sheraton Palo Alto and Poolside Grill generously contributed 20% of all purchases for the evening, which totaled $1,100! Heartfelt thanks to the Sheraton and to PAHS Board Member Colleen Gerstner.

Polydactyl (Extra Toes) Feline Family Needs a Home!

Please contact Ann Chasson from The Dancing Cat directly at annc@svpetproject.org.

This mom cat and what may be her two kittens (they’re different sizes) were abandoned by their owner. They are being temporarily housed by a kind neighbor, but the neighbor is suffering from a serious illness and cannot keep them very much longer. With the shelters bursting at the seams right now, taking them to a shelter is not an option.

The mom is probably under a year old. She’s black and white, friendly, and already spayed. She has 6 toes in front, 5 in back. The older kitten is about 8 weeks old, male, already neutered. He’s medium hair brown tabby with white. The smaller kitten is a brown tabby female, not yet spayed although this will be arranged before adoption. They all have extra toes!

All three will be microchipped and brought up to date on their vaccines if they’re not already.

Local Animal Community Unites to Save JoJo!

JoJo, a frightened, abandoned, German Shepherd dog, found his way to Palo Alto Animal Services. Rescuers learned of his plight, and Joe Lee from M.I.T Mixed Breed Rescue, which was just shy of receiving 501 c 3 status, appealed to PAHS and friends to help save JoJo. Cody Macartney from Animal Services lent his support, and Deborah Buck stepped up to offer a rescue option so JoJo could leave the shelter with Joe Lee. As for us at Palo Alto Humane Society, we provided a neuter voucher and paid for other veterinary expenses for JoJo who had suffered a minor injury. JoJo is now happily settled in his “furever” home.
