We've witnessed a falcon being ganged up on and harassed by crows over in Greenacres 1, while it perched and while it flew. I wonder what injured this one...

Thank dog for San Mateo County's PHS - Palo Alto's wildlife in need of help would be doomed w/out this great organization.

Great job, PHS/SPCA's Tom & Annette Lantos Center for Compassion!

BTW, Hmmm, which "dog" are you thanking?

How did it go? ... about the dyslexic atheist who didn't believe there really was a dog?

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
