CALLING ALL CAT LOVERS! With an influx of 8 to 14-week-old kittens at the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center, now’s the time to get your pick of the litter or two. In fact, if you adopt two kittens, DAWG, which raises funds to support animals in need of medical treatment at the shelter, will pay the $100 base adoption fee for the second one. That means new owners will get the second kitten for only $35 or two kittens for $170. (The adoption fee for one kitten is $135.) The shelter is accepting applications for 18 adorable kittens. The kittens – tabbies, calicos, tortoiseshell and fuzzy black kittens – are vaccinated, de-wormed, spayed or neutered, micro chipped and ready to find loving, permanent homes. People interested in welcoming fun and feisty additions to their homes should drop by the center at 28095 Hillcrest. For more information, call 949-470-3045 or visit the City’s Web site at

The event is good old entertainment for the entire family, not to mention the richest 2-day rodeo in the nation with a purse totaling over $200,000. The top 30 rodeo contestants in saddle bronco and bareback riding, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, bull riding and team roping will come to San Juan Capistrano for this chance of a lifetime. Celebrating the golden age of early California history and the American West, Rancho Mission Viejo has committed to the preservation of the cowboy way of life. Carrying on the cowboy tradition of “passing the hat” in support of a sick child or needy friend, all proceeds from the rodeo will benefit local charities. The cost is $20.
