Can anyone adopt JOEY? 

His cute expression is irresistible, and his 
soft, black and white fur is just made for 
petting and cuddling! He has a brother, 
but if you have another young feline at 
home for a playmate, he can be adopted 
by himself. Please consider an adoption 
or foster, as we are really in need. Joey 
will come already current on vaccines, 
neuter, chipped, and more. Submit the 
application on our website and come and meet him!Age 6 mos. Can 
we get him a fur-ever home by Easter? 

See more pictures of Joey at our website’s Very Young page. You can 
meet him and fall in love by submitting the adoption or foster application 
at Good news: LOVEY from last week has been adopted!

 ALL THINGS By Jeff Brown

William Falk, Editor-in-chief “The Week”

Did you know that Silicon Valley Bank imploded because it was “woke”? Or that masks 
provide absolutely no protection against Covid? Or that SARS-CoV-2 was created in a Chinese 
lab by a sinister “bat lady” in cahoots with Dr. Anthony Fauci? 

Millions of Americans believe all

these statements to be proven fact, despite being unsupported by actual evidence, because 
that’s what they’ve been told by Tucker Carlson and the far-right infotainment system-which 
knowingly lies to it’s audience for profit and power. Whether it’s pedaling stolen elections 
or mass deaths from vaccines, the recipe is the same: Start with a tiny sliver of information, 
separate out 99.8% of the evidence, inflate with hot air and repetition, and voila! You have 
The Real Story. 

Since the audience wants to believe the lie, it will happily add a big dollop of confirmation 
bias, transforming misinformation into blind certainty. Take masking. People who equate

masks with tyranny recently seized on a meta-analysis of 78 studies as proof that masks are 
of no value whatsoever. In reality, 76 of the studies where not about Covid masking at all; 
the 2 that were showed that masking did substantially reduce infections.

Other studies have provided strong evidence that good masks block viral particles. As for

the lab leak theory, there is zero known evidence that SARS-CoV-2 was created in a lab or 
escape from one. Scientists have tracked the original Covid cases to people who worked, 
shopped, or lived near the Wuhan wet market- where SARS-C0V-2 was found on surfaces. 

And the “woke” SVB? Its board had 11 members. 10 were white. 1 was black, 1 was gay, and 
5 were woman. In the Wall Street Journal, Andy Kessler wondered if “12 white men would 
have avoided this mess,” and suggested that “diversity” was at fault.

No financial institution run exclusively by white men has ever acted stupidly...Right?

Pet of the Week

 Who can say no to this smile? Charming Jett is about as fun 
as they come. He is always up for an adventure, whether it be 
a hike in the mountains, a trip to the beach or a stroll around 
town. Afterwards, he never turns down a snuggle! 

Jett has been spending time with a foster family and they 
absolutely rave about him. They’ve shared that he gets along 
well with their dog and likes everyone he meets. Jett is 
described as “easy-going and affectionate.” At only 50 pounds, 
Jett is big enough to hang with the big dogs and small enough 
to curl up next to you on the loveseat! 

 Jett is a young six years old, which makes him eligible for the 
Seniors for Seniors program; his adoption fee is waived for an 
adopter over 60. 

 The adoption fee for dogs is $150. All dog adoptions include 
spay or neuter, microchip, and age-appropriate vaccines. 

 New adopters will receive a complimentary 
health-and-wellness exam from VCA Animal Hospitals, as well as 
a goody bag filled with information about how to care for your pet. 

View photos of adoptable pets and schedule an adoption appointment at Adoptions are by appointment only, and new adoption 
appointments are available every Sunday and Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. 
Pets may not be available for adoption and cannot be held for potential adopters by phone 
calls or email.
