TonkaBell is a sweet girl who loves to play and has enjoyed a few meals. She needs a home where she can exercise and her diet monitored so she can lose those few extra pounds. If you would like give TonkaBell the love and attention she deserves, come and meet her.

TonkaBell 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 TonkaBell, please call PALS at 209-224-0354 or e-mail 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.


Thor is an approximately 1-1/2-year-old German shepherd. He was rescued with a female German shepherd named Gretchen. Thor is neutered. His vaccinations will be current and he will have a microchip before going to his new forever home.

Thor is friendly, affectionate, loving and happy. He has a pre drive, so he should not be around cats and probably small dogs. He is not aggressive toward humans. Thor enjoys ball-fetching and would be a great dog for many canine sports — agility, rally, tracking and herding.

Thor seems house-rained, since he is very clean in his kennel. He gets along with Gretchen and would be fine living with a female dog, but a male would depend entirely on the other dog and the owner’s ability as a pack leader. Avoiding another male would probably be best.

He is good on a leash and knows the commands “sit” and “down.” He is an active dog so an active family who would take him along with them would be a good fit for him. He will be a great companion.

Thor and Gretchen are doing exceptionally well in obedience class and neither shows any aggression towards any of the other dogs of any size, sex or temperament. Both respond easily to all training and love the attention. They do not need a home together.

Thor is being offered for adoption through Animal Friends Connection, a Lodi nonprofit organization dedicated to helping companion animals since 1990. For more information about Thor, call or 209-365-0535.

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.facebook.com/animalfriendsconnection. Sanctuary hours are from noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on weekends.

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?
