  • Mailbag: Concerns about H.B.'s animal shelter

    Newport Beach Animal Control has contracted with the Orange County Humane Society shelter on Newland Street in Huntington Beach ("Newport OKs contract to use shelter," April 28). With an already overcrowded shelter with Costa Mesa's and Westminster's...
  • Mailbag: H.B. shelter is a humane facility

    The Orange County Humane Society would like to address some of the concerns raised by Lynn Beasley in the Independent ("Concerns about H.B.'s animal shelter," May 12). The OCHS remains a pro-humane shelter, only euthanizing animals if they are...
  • Community Commentary: Misinformation about animal shelter

    You published a letter from Lynn Beasley who writes as if only she knows the facts about the Orange County Humane Society on Newland Street in Huntington Beach ("Concerns about H.B.'s animal shelter," May 12). Let me be very clear, I do not have any ax to...
  • City Lights: Some toys have a real story

  • Bird population declines

    The height of summer beach season at Bolsa Chica State Beach is also the height of nesting season at Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve. As you're probably aware, California least terns and Western snowy plovers like to nest on sandy beaches. But during the...
  • Bring back Rockin' Fig

    As the horrific environmental disaster in the Gulf continues to destroy the precious wildlife and threaten the livelihood of generations of seafood fisherman, it is impossible not to empathize with the longtime residents. The fallout will ultimately...
  • Sounding Off: Animals need help from us

    Huntington Beach contracts with OC Animal Care in the city of Orange, serving 17 cities and unincorporated areas (more than 2.1 million people). I believe it is more than a $600,000 yearly fee. Every coastal city from Seal Beach down through San Clemente...
  • Mailbag: Adopting pets better than buying them

    Lynn McCluney ("Animals need our help," Sounding Off, July 29) is right on the mark, especially with her suggestion to adopt pets from various animal shelters instead of buying them from pet stores, and having mandatory neutering and spaying. The...
