I don't understand the negative comments about the Humane Society I have read in the past. It really bothers me. People shouldn't write about things they know nothing about. I have volunteered at the shelter for a long time and have meet and worked with a lot of wonderful people. They are so loving and care very much about the animals. The care they receive is wonderful. They provide this care mostly on private donations and there are a lot of animals to take care of. There wouldn't be so many animals if people spayed and neutered their animals, or stop throwing them out the door like they are nothing.

A cow originally destined for the Carroll County 4-H & FFA Fair this week remained at large in the greater Westminster area as of Saturday morning, according to the Carroll County Sheriff's Office. "I take them out to the fair every year for the kids' rodeo and a few of them managed to get off the trailer," said Doug Dell, the owner of the animals. Initially, four cows escaped on Tuesday, but three were later found. The missing animal is a 500- to 600-pound heifer, according to Dell, and was intended to participate in the "calf scramble" at Wild West Night, a rodeo event at the 4-H & FFA Fair.

Paul Shapiro's article on the true cost of farm raised meat was very informative ( "Eat less chicken," April 22). We would have to agree that the most environmentally sound way of raising animals was developed over millions of years in the natural world, through the predator-prey relationship. Eventually, every animal falls prey to something else and is eaten. The cycle then continues. Yet the Humane Society of the United States, Mr. Shapiro's employer, is a very vocal opponent of hunting.

The Humane Society of Harford County has introduced a new way to adopt a fun-loving feline - the "Pick Your Purr-Fect Price" cat adoption program, in which the humane society's intention is to unite even more fabulous felines with new families. Last year, HSHC took in more than 3,000 cats and kittens and expects this year to be just as busy. The spring and summer months are especially challenging because of the increased numbers of kittens and pregnant mothers entering the shelter.

A group of youngsters got their hands dirty, learned important lessons about animal welfare and got to see the fruits of their fundraising efforts during a visit last week to the Baltimore Humane Society in Reisterstown. Through a field trip sponsored by the Columbia Association, approximately 40 elementary school students went to the nonprofit no-kill shelter Monday to tour the facility and volunteer for the day. The students took advantage of a day off from school to clear debris and perform gardening duties on the 365-acre campus, then enjoyed a meet-and-greet with animals.  "It's terrific," said Wendy Goldband, a spokeswoman for the shelter, who guided the children on their visit.

Leave it to a bunch of dog-lovers, their canine friends, and the Humane Society of Harford County to turn part of a pet fair into a Guinness-certified world record. Two hundred dogs showed up to the Humane Society's Walk & Wag-a-Thon and Pet Fair last fall wearing identical bandanas. That was enough to certify the events as the world's largest gathering of dogs wearing the same bandana, which is a real category and was just officially announced. (Don't believe it? Look here .)

Apparently it's not a nice day for a white wedding. The Baltimore Humane Society was hoping Chico and TeTe - an adoptable dog and cat - and Aladdin and Jasmine - two adoptable guinea pigs - would be "married" Friday for its annual Valentine's Day promotion. But the winter weather has caused the organizers to get cold feet and postpone the festivities until Monday. The ceremony - complete with flowers, wedding cakes and guinea pig bridal outfits - will now go on at 1:30 p.m. Monday at the Baltimore Humane Society, 1601 Nicodemus Road, Reisterstown.

The Humane Society of the United States is extremely disappointed in the recent Maryland Court of Appeals decision designating all pit bull-type dogs as inherently dangerous, and holding owners, landlords and anyone in custody of the dog automatically liable regardless of whether it dog poses a threat ("Pit bulls are inherently dangerous, court rules," April 28). This is a backward step for Maryland, and it puts both dogs and people at risk. A dog's propensity to bite is a product of several factors, including early socialization, living conditions and the owner's behavior - not breed alone.
