The Woof Report: Brad the dog and Sheva the pit are trying to make a break from homelessness. It was released to the public earlier today that Brad and Sheva are at the Animal Shelter in Long Beach. They are searching for a safe haven after receiving a bad rap because of their nationality. It has been noted that Brad has been awarded the "Heart of Gold" prize of the year from the Humane Society for an American Staffordshire terrier. With his handsome looks and winning personality, he is bound to win your heart. Talk about one gorgeously handsome guy on four legs. It is a wonder that his new girlfriend, Sheva, is not head over heels in love with him. We hear from undisclosed sources that this courtship is merely an infatuation. Sheva, who is striking in her own right, has won the "Regal and Sophisticated" prize award from the Humane Society. Unlike the boyish charm of Brad, Sheva has style and grace and prefers to review new admirers to see if they pass her requirements for friendship. You must be a charmer to be included in her "circle of trust." These pits are a rare sighting in Long Beach. You absolutely must come down and see them today at the shelter. If you are lucky you might even be able to get an exclusive interview and be able to take Brad or Sheva for a walk.

End Cat Overpopulation! February is Spay Your Cat Month at our animal shelter. Low-income Peninsula residents can have their cats spayed for free during the month of February. For more information call the Animal Shelter at 642-1180.

Happy Adoption Tails! Animals adopted this last week. Dog Tails: Claire and Sleepy. Cat Tails: Henry, Christy, Sarah, Trixie, Gyspy, Pansy and Waldo.

Free Dog Training with Tina Woodworth on Saturday, Feb. 18, at 1 p.m. for dogs that have been adopted from our animal shelter. Pre-registration is required - call 642-1180. Please note: All dogs must be leashed and wearing prong collars, which will be available at the shelter.

Tina Woodworth teaches dog obedience, which is effective for dogs who are challenging. She recommends prong collars for dogs that do not respond to traditional training techniques.

Your help is needed! Please join the Fundraising Committee for the animal shelter. Help us raise money so we can provide food, care and shelter for animals in need. Our first meeting of this year will be this coming Monday, Feb. 6, at Western Coastal Mortgage (811 Pacific Hwy S #1, Long Beach) from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. Bring your ideas to help us raise money. Refreshments will be served.

Shelter Wish List/Shelter Needs: We desperately need quality puppy food such as Science Diet, or Nutro brands or Purina Puppy Chow for the eight puppies that we have, as well as laundry detergent, paper towels and kitchen-sized garbage bags.
