What a wonderful story, thank you. Great work, Humane Society. It's so gratifying to read about the kids' enthusiasm for the Critter Club. I loved reading about Danny Rendon's early walks with his dog as a result of the program--what a compassionate boy. Thanks very much, Palo Alto Weekly, for providing the grant. (Perhaps it could be bumped up a bit next year?)
