Melissa is a medium-sized, 10-month-old, short-haired terrier mix. She is has been spayed and all of her vaccinations are current. Melissa is housebroken and uses a doggy door. She is a fast learner, and knows how to sit for treats and plays fetch.

Melissa is being offered for adoption through PALS, a Lodi-based nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the welfare of companion animals in Lodi. For more information about Melissa, please call PALS at 224-0354 or email pals.lodi@yahoo.com.

To see other cats and dogs available for adoption, visit the PALS Adoption Center at 1405 W. Kettleman Lane, Lodi; or visit www.palslodi.org and www.petfinder.com. Center hours are Tuesday through Friday from 1 to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.


Tessa is a black-and-sable lab/dachshund mix and is 21⁄2 to 3 years old. She weighs between 25 and 30 pounds, has been microchipped and spayed, and her vaccinations are current. She loves to take walks, rides in the car well and likes to sleep in a human bed. Tessa likes to be the boss of her world and wants her family to recognize she needs to be pet and praised all day. She is trainable, knows the commands “sit” and “stay,” and will stay in another room while meals are served and eaten. Tessa doesn’t take quickly to strangers, especially men, but once she gets to know you she will be your best friend. She is great with all children.

Tessa is available for adoption because her human is allergic to her soft fur and has to let her go. If you are interested in two dogs, she can be adopted with her house-mate Winnie, a 30-pound, 3-year-old, small shepherd mix. The house mother is not allergic to Winnie and will keep him, but Tessa and Winnie are good with each other and it would be nice to keep them together; although it is not necessary as long as Tessa gets a loving forever home.

To view other dogs and cats available for adoption, visit the sanctuary at 933 S. Cherokee Lane, Lodi; or visit www.animalfriendsconnect.org and www.pet finder.com/shelters/afc.html. Sanctuary hours are Monday through Friday from noon to 6 p.m. and weekends from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.


Seth and Starr are adorable 2-year-old cats who are very attached to each other. They are a little shy at first, but when they get to know you and are comfortable, they are very affectionate and love to purr and cuddle. The two of them have lived with the same family since they were kittens, but the family is divorcing and is unable to keep them, so they would love to be adopted together. If you have love and time to give, come and meet Seth and Starr.

Seth and Starr are being adopted through the Abandoned Cat Team, a San Joaquin County-based nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the welfare of cats since 2005. If you are interested in adopting Seth and Starr, please call the Abandoned Cat Team at 712-4064.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
