Like a mother protecting her young, Scooter, a 4-year-old pit bull, kept her eyes on the new puppies in the puppy ward. Scooter looked over the puppies, found the frightened ones and licked their faces through the wrought-iron fence. When any whined, she nudged them. It's all part of the job. As mascot of the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society and Wildlife Rehabilitation Center here, Scooter helps make all newcomers feel at home.

Bonnie is in a bad mood. In fact, Bonnie is always in a bad mood. A tough 7-year-old who weighs maybe 90 pounds, Bonnie would rather curl up in a corner than consort with strangers. The idea of people getting too close makes Bonnie rear back and stick out his tongue. That's right, Bonnie is a boy. A male Burmese python, with a striking net-like pattern along his ample length. Right now, he has a bulge down near the middle of his nine-foot body.
