Area residents with an interest in wildlife are invited to a meeting Wednesday afternoon for prospective volunteers to PAWS (Preservation And Wildlife Society) Farm and Nature Center in Mount Laurel. Volunteers may choose between becoming licensed wildlife volunteers or doing yard and office work at PAWS. A licensed wildlife volunteer is someone who cares for injured and orphaned animals, said Barbara Smyth, a licensed wildlife volunteer for PAWS. "There is always a need for volunteers," she said, especially in the springtime.

Yo, Fire Commissioner Hairston, it's bad enough you haven't been supportive of firefighters seeking medical benefits in their battle against hep C. Letting Engine 50 lose Smokey 2 would be too much. Yes, we know the Fire Department forbids stations to keep pets, a policy established after some dogs nipped passers-by. But if you close your eyes to the presence of a new mascot at Engine 50, a grateful city will thank you. Apparently, it's your call; reporter Dana DiFilippo was told that if a waiver were sought, the commissioner could decide on a case-by-case basis.

Gather round the TV set, kitties, this ad's for you. Whiskas, the cat-food company, says the 30-second commercial it will be airing on ABC, CBS and NBC starting tonight is designed to appeal directly to cats. They, after all, are the ones that consume the product. "To keep cat owners in the loop," said the company announcement, "a 15-second teaser spot will run in advance of the ad, alerting them to get their pets to the TV. The main ad features a series of high-pitched sounds, zigzag lines and other images that researchers on feline behavior have found attract a cat's attention.

FOR YEARS, I've read Stu Bykofsky's work and admired his role in the animal-rights community. But his four-part series about PAWS has me somewhat confused. What is his motive with these articles? Is he trying to educate us about what really goes on inside PAWS? Or is he trying to turn people away from adopting at PAWS? I'm a volunteer for PAWS, and I think the real issue here is that people should understand how important it is to spay and neuter their pets. If there were a law to force people to spay and neuter pets, we wouldn't have the overcrowding.

The owner of a legendary hotdog eatery remembers the handmade dog donation bank from the Chester County SPCA that sat on the counter of the restaurant for many years. A year ago, it was lost in a fire that destroyed Jimmy John's Pipin' Hot Sandwiches, a devastating blaze that galvanized community support for the iconic family restaurant on Route 202 near the boundary between Chester and Delaware Counties. Owner Roger Steward credits that assistance with a rebuilding effort that put him back in business by December, and now he wants to extend his gratitude.

WHEN AN early-December fire consumed their kitchen and filled their North Philadelphia house with smoke, Sharon McCurdy and her adult son, Wilson Washington, fled onto 27th Street near Somerset. Their beloved gray-and-white cat, Tigger, was missing. Once the fire scene was secure, former firefighter Jennifer Leary and her Red Paw Emergency Relief Team responded to Tigger's absence as intensely as the Red Cross responds to families displaced by disaster. Leary found Tigger at the scene of the fire, boarded him in her house, took him to a veterinarian and placed him in Red Paw's network of temporary foster homes until he could return to his. After staying with relatives, McCurdy and Washington were able to move back home just before Christmas.

We have surveyed what's new and exclusive to the Citizens Bank Park Majestic Clubhouse Store this season. And we can assure you of this: The "Hug-A-Phanatic" plush ($29.99) will be the runaway hit in the Daddy I Need That category. It's big. It's plush. It's the Phanatic. And beyond that, it's interactive. A child puts her hands into the Phanatic's own fuzzy green paws, and whenever she claps he claps. Genius. Our own SportsWeek mascot Jessica Berkery (left in photo), got the hang of it in, oh, a second and was last seen leaving the Daily News premises with the Hug-A-Phanatic glued to her person.
