On a warm Saturday afternoon, back to San Mateo Pet Club, I-92@I-101 for another large bag of puppy food. The “adoption” van was out front with 4 stacked up, empty wire crates inside. Sure enough, the other 9 crates were lined up in the store with the human crew lunching at one of their card tables; white man and woman, T-shirts, “Rescued is my favorite breed”. The dogs were mostly napping. The adoptioneers seemed busy among themselves.
Across the store was Homeless Cat Network, a long established local (c)(3) with a crew of volunteers and a bank of 8 cages.
