 Lady available dog at Humane Society
Breed: Pit Bull (mix)
Color: White/Brown
Age: 3 years
Sex: Female
Hair: Short
Adoption Fee: $105

Lady is a loving and sweet companion looking for a special family and home to call her own.
Lady unfortunately came to us after being hit by a car.  With the care and love from the San Diego Humane Society, she has been getting better every day.  She is still on restricted exercise, so she will need a family who will help her with her recovery.  She is thrilled to go on short walks.  Lady loves to play and spend quality time with her favorite people friends.  She will do well in a variety of homes, but an adults-only home is recommended.  She would also prefer to be the only pet in the home.
 Her adoption fee is $105 and includes her spay, current vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, certificate for a free veterinary exam, and more!  During the adoption process a Humane Society Veterinarian will be present to explain her medical history, answer any questions, and share how to best care for me in the future.


Nico and available dog at the Humane Society
Breed: Chihuahua mix
Color: Tan/White   
Age: 1 year
Sex:  Male
Hair: short
Adoption Fee: $105

Nico is an affectionate, loving dog looking for a home.  Nico has the unfailing ability to brighten anyone’s day.  A sweet little ball of love, he can’t wait to find a family to cherish.

Nico came to us as a stray with bite wounds to his chest, and this resilient little pup has won over the hearts of our entire Veterinary Medicine department!  Nico has fully recovered and loves spending time with people friends that he knows and trusts.  While he can be a little shy at first, he warms up quickly.  He gets along very well with other dogs and enjoys interacting with them. 
Nico will do well in a variety of homes, but due to his initial shyness with new faces and places, a home with children 12 years and older is recommended.  Visit us in person at the San Diego Humane Society to see all of our great available pets. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Tiger will do well in a variety of homes, but a home with older children is recommended.  Tiger would do great in a home with other dogs!  His adoption fee is $180 and includes his current vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, certificate for a free veterinary exam, and more!

3 Laureates Celebrated at Kyoto Prize Gala 2011


The Kyoto Prize Symposium celebrated its 10th year with a gala April 4th, 2011, at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel downtown.

Hugh Davies with Joan Jacobs, William Kentridge, and Robin Parsky

Three Laureates were honored for their outstanding lifetime achievements in the fields of advanced technology, basic sciences and arts and philosophy. This year’s laureates are Shinya Yamanaka,  for his advanced stem cell research at Kyoto University; Hungarian mathematician László Lovász, who specializes in large computer systems; and South African William Kentridge, whose work in painting, sculpture, architecture and design have been focused on human rights.

Influential was the common denominator as a who’s who mingled before the awards’ dinner.

Among the supporters there were Honorary Chairs Irwin Jacobs (he’s the founder of Qualcomm) and his wife Joan Jacobs, ResMed’s Peter Farrell, and Union Bank’s Masashi Oka. Also there were Lynda Forsha and Dr. Hugh M. Davies, he’s the David C. Copley Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, oceanographer and past recipient Dr. Walter Munk and Mary Coakley, Marci and John Cavagnau, Renee and Duane Roth (Duane’s head of UCSD’s CONNECT), past President Stephen Weber, Ph.D. of San Diego State University, Chancellor Marye Anne Fox, Ph.D. of the University of California, San Diego, and President Mary E. Lyons, Ph.D. of the University of San Diego.

These 3 universities hosted free lectures by the laureates over 2 days. Point Loma Nazarene will be added to the host universities next year.

Dr. Kazuo Inamori, the Kyoto Prize’s founder, has long time ties to San Diego. Since 1971, San Diego has been the North American headquarters for his company Kyocera. Dr. Inamori has been very generous to the Kyoto Prize Symposium over the years.
