Buddy is a 4-month-old black tabby. He is very sweet and loves to cuddle. He is looking for a family to give him lots of love and attention.

If you are interested in giving Buddy a forever home, come and meet him. For more information about Buddy, call 209-369-6076.

Buddy is being offered for adoption through Cats of All Colors, a San Joaquin County-based nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the welfare of cats.


Tucker is a 5-year-old Labrador-Australian shepherd mix. His family lost their home and is unable to keep him. He weighs about 56 pounds, his vaccinations are current and he has been neutered. He will also have a microchip before going to his new home.

Tucker knows the commands "sit," "down" and "come." He has lived most of his life outside but would loved to be indoors with a family. He does not lift his let to mark on plants so he should be easy to house-train. Tucker loves to play fetch and will bring it back and drop it by you, he also enjoys playing Frisbee.

He is gentle, affectionate and playful but is afraid of fireworks and children's jump houses. He is also frightened by large dogs that bark at him when he goes for walks — he is not a barker. Tucker gets along great with dogs small and large, as long as the large dog is not barking at him. He enjoys going for walks and riding in the car. Tucker will make a great family companion since he also likes children.

Tucker is being offered for adoption through Animal Friends Connection, a Lodi nonprofit organization dedicated to helping companion animals since 1990. For more information about Tucker, call 209-368-1761.

Skunky is a young neutered cat. He loves playing with things on a rod, little fake mice and bouncy balls. He is always hungry and is known as a "cat-dishwasher." He climbs on shoulders and covers your face with wet cat licks.

Skunky needs an inside-only home and would do very well with other cats who are energetic and playful. He rarely meows but when he does it is usually important. He is an example of how amazing rescue animals can be, and how grateful they are to be given a second chance at life. If you are interested in adopting Skunky, come and meet him.

Skunky 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 Skunky, please call PALS at 209-224-0354 or email pals.lodi@yahoo.com.

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?
