Jackie Dale—The Cat Mother/Cat Trapper: Too Busy to Write

by Jackie Dale

The past few months have been so busy I didn’t even have the time or energy to write my columns for the past two months. The non-stop cat work combined with the holiday season just made for an extremely hectic time. In addition, the vet was leaving at the end of December, so I had to get as much done as I could before then. That included resuming trapping at the golf course. I had only been trapping there for a couple of weeks before the rains started.

by Alisia Sanchez & Juan Guitron

Edwina (Animal ID: 25792) is a petite six-year-old cutie who was brought to Valley Animal Center by a local animal advocate last year in June. Edwina was malnourished, and her patchy fur was a result of ringworm. With the appropriate care and treatment, Edwina gained weight and her fur grew back. She is now available for adoption but is having a difficult time finding a furever home.

Happy New Year peeps! How’s your noggin’? Today is the day for hangovers, leftovers, and water under the bridge.

Fresno Bully Rescue: Checkers & Sy

by Terese Shaw

What exactly is a Pitbull? The fact is that there is no such thing as a “full-blooded" Pitbull. The majority of dogs labeled as Pitbulls are mixed breed dogs, however they are labeled a Pitbull due to a few of the following characteristics.

Feral Paws Rescue: 4 Cats & 2 Dogs Find Rescue

by Paula Hunsaker

Our rescue over the years has seen and been through so much that is heartbreaking and joyful at times. But there are times when you have to stop and question the human race. I have learned over time that there is a huge difference between the mind of the public and the work of rescue. I have found over time that there are some very heartless humans. We get so attached to our rescue pets and some even become forever pets with the rescue.
