PETS: Golfer plays for Brutus, his Akita –

Last week I happened to see a posting on Facebook from Larry Burns, who is participating in the June 27 golf tournament at the Victoria Country Club in Riverside to benefit the Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center.

“I do it for Brutus, my 11-year-old Akita mix,” he wrote. “He was born at the PAC and he’s given my sons and I so many years of happiness, protection and joy.”

Volunteers and donors are an integral part of every shelter. Last Saturday and Sunday, 14 staff and volunteers from the pet adoption center took dogs to the L.A. Super Pet Adoption event sponsored by Best Friends Animal Society at La Brea Tar Pits Park in Los Angeles.
