HEAVEN'S GATE Animal Rescue will hold a car show from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday on the Costco parking lot off Ordnance Road. The event will include food and music along with the opportunity to view vehicles owned by members of the Custom Car Club of Maryland. Rain date is Sunday. Heaven's Gate, a Glen Burnie-based nonprofit organization that rescues abandoned or unwanted cats and dogs, was founded 20 years ago by Joanne Redelius. Because many of the animals have health problems, the organization averages $2,000 a month in veterinary bills.

Officials at an animal rescue center in Harwood said Friday they are housing the feral cat that last week prompted closure of Richard Henry Lee Elmentary School in Glen Burnie. Anne Arundel County school officials had spotted the cat last Friday and, after failing to capture it, closed the school over concerns that students might be bitten or scratched. The cat was finally caught Sept. 2 by county animal control officials. On Friday, officials from Rude Ranch Animal Rescue in Harwood, a volunteer-based nonprofit, said animal rescue had brought the feline to its facility.

Jon Boyer is probably going to take a lot of heat for this -- we're sorry, Jon. But it's really our duty to report your utter fabulousness and rock-star status as an animal rescuer. Not that the ladies of Baltimore need any reminding, apparently. Homeless and injured animals seem to have something of a magnetic attraction to Boyer, who's a Baltimore police officer. He says police rescue cats and dogs all the time -- comes with the job. But he's a little flummoxed that his occasional drop-off at the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS)

When "cat-house legislation" came before the Baltimore County planning board last week, it drew nearly 3,000 howls from animal lovers, and one moderately anti-cat speech from a Parkville man who lives next door to an animal shelter.The cat-house saga began in September, when Council Chairman William A. Howard IV of Parkville -- responding to a constituent's complaint -- introduced a resolution asking the planning board to limit the number of cats allowed per household.But the planning board staff recommended against such legislation, saying the county code already covers any potential cat problems.

So you want to get a puppy. Great! Now where should you go and what should you do? I would imagine that the owners of the new store in Columbia called "Charm City Puppies" would want you to immediately walk through their doors. Or the folks who manage "Today's Pet" would want you in their store. But are there other, better options? If you were to ask me the question of where you should get your puppy, my answer would be to head to Columbia's animal shelter — the Howard County Animal Control and Adoption Facility (HCAC)
