A couple strolled into Jamaican Me Crazy in Haddonfield on St. Patrick's Day. As the woman called the store owner over to one side of the sales counter, the man swiped a charity donation can and tucked it into his jacket. The same day, the pair distracted Nikolaos Lavdas, owner of The Bistro at Haddonfield, by asking him about catering and the store menu. There, the woman snatched a donation can by the register and hurried out. Her partner followed. Donation cans are stolen every so often, but this time, the thefts were caught on surveillance video - twice.

An animal-rescue volunteer says the Delaware County SPCA is by far "the worst shelter" she has ever seen. Irene Meisel, who volunteers saving pure-breed cats from about 20 shelters in the Philadelphia region, said Friday that nine of the 11 cats she took from the Media shelter in the last six months were ill - and that four died. "Those animals are not even given vet care," said Meisel, of Eagleville, Montgomery County. "The problem is not the staff. They go above and beyond.

Officers with the Pennsylvania SPCA late Friday removed at least 23 dogs from the property of a woman in Marcus Hook who runs what she calls an animal rescue. Terry Silva, operator of Sixth Angel Shepherd Rescue Inc., faces animal-cruelty charges after officers executing a search warrant found sick and underweight animals in a filthy house, according to PSPCA spokeswoman Wendy Marano. She said officers were continuing to search the property Friday night for more dogs. Silva, a lawyer, was cited by the Bureau of Dog Law Enforcement in 2010 for transferring dogs in a public place and other violations.

I AM A lifetime resident of Philadelphia involved in animal rescue. The stories about the animal-control shelter are especially sad and ironic since, only a few weeks ago, the Alliance for Philadelphia Animals formed, pledging to bring about "no more homeless pets" in Philadelphia. The trouble is that all the negative energy and criticism will be directed against PACCA. If people give it any thought, they would see that they need not to boycott these institutions but to adopt as many animals as possible from them to lower the appallingly high death rates.

Sitting in her yellow farmhouse kitchen, noisy with the rat-a-tat-tat of five sets of pacing paws and the untimely squawking of three pet birds, Debby Cugliotta reveals she spends $400 to $600 a month out of her own pocket in an effort to save dogs that might otherwise be euthanized in shelters and pounds. Among other jobs, this involves constant phone calls and car trips all over the Northeast, middle-of-the-night runs to shelters to pick up dogs on death row and hours spent nursing neglected animals back to emotional and physical health.

Time is running out for Sam. "He's three years old and a real cute little guy," said Joseph Pulcinella, who manages the Delaware County SPCA in Media. "He's been with us for almost two weeks, and we all love him. " But there's hope for Sam, who Pulcinella says is incredibly companionable and "great with kids. " Hope that on Sunday the sad-eyed beagle, who's only about a foot wide across the shoulders, won't be put to sleep forever, but will find a home. The hope is "Adoption Sunday," from 1 to 3 p.m., when Sam and about 75 other dogs and about 50 kittens are put up for adoption at the SPCA kennels at 555 Sandy Bank Rd. "Every month, we take in about 700 cats and about 650 dogs from throughout the county," Pulcinella said.

New Jersey's most famous fat cat "looks great," according to officials at the Camden County Animal Shelter, after an initial visit to the vet by the 44-pound feline - known to the world as Prince Chunk - found no immediate signs of health problems. The vet visit said the cat boasted beautiful teeth that looked like those of a 7-year-old, not a 10-year-old, reported Catherine Harr, president of the animal shelter's board. The previous owner of the cat said that he was 10, Harr said.

For decades, disaster evacuation plans had strict priorities for people and pets. Move the humans first, worry about the animals later. Recent storms had eroded that maxim, and Katrina has blown it down. After New Orleans residents died because they wouldn't abandon their pets, emergency planners from across the country began embracing a new reality: They can best save people by saving animals, too. "We've always assumed that pets would be left behind," said Thomas Sullivan, Montgomery County's director of public safety.

WERE YOU shocked to hear about Jon Stewart's post-"Daily-Show" plan to join his Philly-born wife, Tracey Stewart, in running a farm for rescued animals? It was no surprise to Gene Baur, who has helped reshape attitudes - the Stewarts' and many others' - about food and animals since cofounding the first Farm Sanctuary for rescued farm animals almost 30 years ago. Baur was a recent "Daily Show" guest, and when I inquired, postinterview, about reports that his first book, Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds About Animals and Food , was a major influence on the Stewarts, he shrugged off the credit, saying, "All of us here at Farm Sanctuary are very grateful to the Stewarts.

THE TITLE isn't an exaggeration. It was something of a "Big Miracle," the way the plight of a family of gray whales, stranded under the Alaska ice, captivated the country and forced oil men and environmentalists, natives and Cold War foes to team up back in the waning days of the Reagan administration. And it's no small miracle that the story of that nearly forgotten moment makes for a delightful family movie. Political cynicism, media opportunism, dogmatic native "tradition," corporate greed and environmentalist stubbornness are each, in turn, dashed against this sunny Ken ("License to Wed")

It was an ordinary day until I found a fawn in the garage. Don't worry, this has a happy ending. Here's what happened. You may recall from my previous adventures of Buddy the Pony that I ride with two girlfriends, Nan and Paula. Well, the three of us had just come back from our ride, exhausted. We weren't exhausted because we ride so hard. We rarely trot and never canter, so what we do is sit on the horses' backs while we talk. But sometimes our horses wander far apart from each other, as we have little or no control over them, and rather than stop talking, we merely shout our entire conversation to each other, which can be exhausting.

Twenty-two dogs rescued from Michael Vick's dogfighting operation were brought to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary last year. They arrived at our Utah facility in various states of trauma. While we've had many breakthroughs with the dogs, some have yet to recover. And some may never recover from the abuse and neglect they suffered in Vick's care. To our knowledge, neither Vick, his handlers, nor the NFL has called to ask how the dogs are doing. And these very real, living victims of the crime are nowhere to be found in the continuing debate about Vick's rehabilitation.

HARRISBURG - After nearly two years of wrangling, the stage is set for an end-of-session showdown in the state House this week over Gov. Rendell's sweeping proposal to improve conditions for thousands of dogs in Pennsylvania's commercial kennels. Few issues in recent years have provoked as much debate in the Capitol and public reaction as Rendell's effort to curb "puppy mills," large kennels that, critics contend, churn out hundreds of puppies a year while packing the breeding dogs in cramped, filthy cages.
