City officials have unanimously agreed to waive all pet-adoption fees for senior citizens. Roberta Gorny, manager of the San Clemente Animal Shelter, said Monday that Orange County residents who are 60 years or older are eligible to participate in the Senior Companion Animal Program sponsored by the shelter. The program is about a month old and is designed "to provide love and companionship for seniors who couldn't afford to pay for an animal," Gorny said. Mayor Brian Rice said the City Council agreed to waive the fees 2 weeks ago "to make it easier for people to adopt the animals."

I hope the negative publicity surrounding the release of "Babe; Pig in the City" will not deter fans of the first movie from heading posthaste to the theater to catch this charmer. My friend and I, both in our late 40s, experienced the movie in a nearly empty theater. The few children in the theater were quiet, well-behaved and enthralled with the story. It was funny, touching and thought-provoking. Too dark for children? I think not. As a volunteer at the San Clemente Animal Shelter, I think it's important to teach our children compassion toward all living creatures at an early age. To see the reality of what could happen to our "disposable" animal companions would make a good topic for families to discuss over dinner after the movie.

The San Clemente Animal Shelter has many projects in which volunteers play a vital role. "We currently have about 100 volunteers," said Roberta Gorny, shelter manager. "The majority of the volunteers work with fund-raising projects, and the others staff the shelter. They help us remain pro-life. "Without the volunteer help, we would not be able to keep up the shelter as we do now." Some of the volunteers' duties include walking and bathing the dogs and taking animals to the veterinarian.

Read All About It: Laguna Hills Mall considers its Christmas campaign to combat illiteracy a resounding success. Shoppers donated 3,215 books to Human Options, a shelter for abused women and children in Laguna Beach. The response was so overwhelming that books will be sent to two other shelters as well. Fifty people volunteered to tutor people to read through the South Coast Literacy Council.

Susie, a half-blind, 10-year-old Teacup Poodle, is what the San Clemente Animal Shelter is all about. The curly haired dog with a surgically implanted pin in its foreleg would have been killed at the other Orange County animal shelters, San Clemente animal officials say. Instead, Susie was kept in a child's playpen while volunteers at the San Clemente Animal Shelter searched for a new owner. Susie wasn't allowed to stay with her previous owner, who went into a nursing home.

After being awarded a $10,000 grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the San Clemente Animal Shelter has made plans to create a rabbit habitat, just in time for the booming number of bunnies that are expected to crowd the shelter after the Easter season. Cuddly, furry and fluffy, bunnies are often a favorite gift for children during the holidays.

After waiting more than two years, dogs, cats and rabbits now have a permanent place to rest their paws. Over the weekend, more than 50 animals were moved from the San Clemente Animal Shelter into a new 6,300-square-foot facility that will serve as the animal shelter for both San Clemente and Dana Point.

As a citizen and dog owner of San Clemente for more than 15 years, I urge the City Council, city manager, Beaches, Parks and Recreation Department and commissioners to seriously consider establishing a dog park in San Clemente. This issue has been raised before, most recently at the Parks and Recreation board meeting Nov. 9. When a dog creates a disturbance or "makes a mess," it is the owner's responsibility; not the dog's. A "bark park" such as the one in Laguna Beach proves that most dog owners are responsible: They clean up after their dogs (and also clean up after the small percentage of owners who are irresponsible)

The 12-year-old dog, a friendly Samoyed, was found tied to a post by the front door of the San Clemente Animal Shelter. A note was found near her, telling of the hard economic times that had forced a family to abandon its beloved pet. "My name is Misha," the note said. "My dad lost his job and we couldn't keep our house."

Ugly, the pit bullterrier who is under a death sentence, will stay alive at least until Monday despite the expiration of an injunction that kept San Clemente officials from acting against him. The injunction, which had been issued Friday by an Orange County Superior Court judge, kept the city from killing the dog until after 5 p.m. Wednesday. The city did not object to the order obtained by owner Kyeli Beckmann but asked the court to require a $10,000 liability bond before Ugly could go free.
