More than a dozen dogs set to be euthanized began their journey to finding a permanent a home Saturday when the Newport Beach Plaza Retirement Community hosted its second annual pet adoption event. As part of a fundraiser for Stella's Hope - a nonprofit that finds dogs a foster home until they're permanently adopted so they avoid euthanization - the retirement community Saturday welcomed between 15 and 20 dogs for prospective owners to meet. None of the dogs are adopted at the event, retirement community spokeswoman Marilyn Williams said, but owners get to meet the animals and apply to have the dogs visit their home to see if it's a good fit. Williams said at least 13 applications had been submitted before Saturday's event had concluded.

Tootsie The holiday season’s pet adoption event at Fashion Island has been a fun and special time for kittens to find new homes. The longhair diluted torti named Tootsie lounges in her holiday decorated adoption cage wearing a festive hat. “She purrs all the time at home,” says the Allen family representative, whose daughter attends Corona del Mar High School. Tootsie may be seen in the caregiver’s home this week by calling (949) 759-3646, as the adoption event will be closed for the weekend following the Christmas holiday.

ORLANDO, Fla. — These reader questions were answered by experts attending the North American Veterinary Conference here Jan.14-18. Question: We adopted a kitten from a shelter, and at only 7 months she already weighs 14 pounds. We feed her a half a can of canned food each morning and have dry food available all the time. Sparky even sleeps near the food bowl, and eats often. I believe she must have gone hungry before she came to us. To cut calories, I have switched to adult dry food.
