Hans is available for adoption through Pets In Need.

Hans is an 18-month-old male terrier mix available for adoption through Pets In Need. He is initially shy around new people, but it doesn’t take him long to warm up, according to Pets In Need reps. His favorite hangouts are on the desk and the lap of PIN’s shelter operations manager. He enjoys watching her type and provides occasional finger licks to solicit a cuddle. For more information on Hans and other animals available for adoption, call Pets In Need at 496-5971, visit petsinneed.org or stop by the facility at 3281 E. Bayshore Road in Palo Alto, noon to 5 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays.

Literature expert highlights Shakespeare's enduring legacy


Engel

Professor Emeritus Elliot Engel explained the enduring legacy of William Shakespeare in his April 2 Morning Forum of Los Altos presentation, “Shakespeare 400 Years Later: More Alive than Ever.”

“Although Shakespeare died in 1616, he is the greatest person who picked up a pen and wrote,” Engel said. “He’s our greatest writer and always will be. Because Shakespeare wrote plays, he wanted his words to roll over us as we listened to them.”

Gracie is an 8-month-old pit bull mix available for adoption through Pets In Need. She’s a sweet “pupper” and is full of spunk, according to Pets In Need reps. “She’d make a great exercise buddy, as she’s full of energy, and our volunteers say she’s a dream on-leash,” they said. Gracie already knows “sit,” and she would benefit from a family that’s willing to teach her more commands and tricks. For more information on Gracie and other animals available for adoption, call Pets In Need at 496-5971, visit petsinneed.org or stop by the facility at 3281 E. Bayshore Road in Palo Alto, noon to 5 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays.
