Though well known for their amorous natures, pet rabbits still aren’t fixed as often as they should be. To help curb the problem, the Seattle Animal Shelter will open its rabbit spay and neuter service to the public in January.

Shelter veterinarian Mary Ellen Zoulas says a common cause of unexpected pregnancy in rabbits has to do with folks mistaking Peter Cottontail for a female.

The King County animal shelter  in Kent has temporarily suspended the acceptance of adult cats.  The shelter is trying to reduce its population in preparation for possible flooding along the Green River.   In the event of a flood,  the animals will have to be evacuated to another facility.
