The Solano County Friends of Animals recently adopted out its 2,000th pet. The nonprofit organization, which has been facilitating pet adoptions at Pet Food Express for nearly 30 years, has now added a cat center to its operations. Despite its relatively modest budget, the nonprofit relies on donations to provide services to local animals.

A developmental screening is important for identifying problems in early childhood. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all children be screened for developmental delays or disabilities at birth or at their first well child checkup. Proper interventions can greatly reduce the negative consequences of many problems. Solano County has a county-wide collaborative for developmental screenings and early intervention.
