The staff at the Champaign County Humane Society and I are hoping for a good turn out at this Saturday's "Kitten Shower" adoption event.

Last night, a report ran on local television news about the fatal shooting of a dog in Broadlands. The report indicated that people in the community are upset, and that the shooter is now calling for a ban on Pit Bull dogs in Broadlands.
I suggest we take the rhetoric down a notch and take a look at what we know . . .
