The Humane Society of Westmoreland County’s Breakfast for the Animals turned into breakfast with the animals, as two adorable shelter puppies showed up to steal the show.

The chance to cuddle the fur babies was almost as big a draw as the gourmet breakfast buffet, served June 1 at Christ Our Shepherd Center in Unity.

The event, overseen by HSWC executive director Kathy Burkley, also featured door prizes and a basket raffle.

Westmoreland County Commissioner Gina Cerilli came away as the big winner, snagging three prizes, including a lottery ticket tree and a basket of restaurant gift cards.

Cerilli said the tickets and the restaurant cards were going to her grandmother, while the third basket was returned to event organizers for use at their next fundraiser.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
