Animal Care Services reminds ‘pet parents’ to make responsible adoption decisions around holidays
SAN ANTONIO – A gift that is sure to warm the hearts of even the coldest Grinch is a puppy or kitty, however, Animal Care Services wants to remind the public to make responsible pet adoption decisions around the holidays. The city shelter strongly encourages that “pet parents” make informed decisions when adopting pets at any time of the year because having a pet is a long-term commitment. According to the shelter, area shelters and rescue organizations have hundreds of adoption ready pets who are invested in placing you with the perfect pet. “Vaccinations and spay/neuter surgery are generally included in the adoption fee and many animal agencies will have regular specials during the holidays,” the shelter said in a statement. There is also a change coming in 2021 when it comes to pet stores in the city.
The decade’s first meteor shower is happening this weekend
The new decade has arrived, and Mother Nature’s first gift to us all is an amazing meteor shower that will take place this weekend. The Quadrantid meteor shower will be easiest to see during the predawn hours Saturday, but is expected to begin late Friday. The Quadrantid meteor shower, which is known to produce 50-100 meteors, was named for a constellation that exists no more: the Quadrans Muralis. An astronomer by the name of Peter Jenniskens identified the parent body of the shower in 2003 as the asteroid 2003 EHI. EarthSky reported that if the asteroid is indeed the Quadrantid shower’s parent, the meteors come from a rocky body — not an icy comet.
