Rescued pups, dogs, cats ready for homes

Caring for a big influx of animals in need isn't easy, but the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Tampa Bay has been getting plenty of practice at it lately. Four weeks ago, the local SPCA was enlisted to help the Humane Society of the United States raid a puppy mill in Lyles, Tenn. The raid, which the SPCA said was the largest of its type ever in Tennessee, brought 101 animals to the society's shelter in Largo. Many needed urgent treatment and attention. Now, while some of the rescued dogs, puppies, cats and kittens are ready for new homes, others continue to need care from the SPCA, its staff and volunteers. If you're interested in adopting any of the organization's animals, visit www.spcatampabay.org or call (727) 586-3591. The SPCA Tampa Bay is at 9099 130th Ave. N. Its hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

  3. 'Baby Driver' literally turns heist movie genre on its ear, set to slick soundtrack

    Movies

    Buckle up for Baby Driver, a movie so full throttle cool that you want to fist bump the screen. Style is the substance of Edgar Wright's inventive heist flick, a fresh, masterful synching of music and getaway mayhem, as if La La Land's traffic jam was moving, armed and dangerous.

    Baby (Ansel Elgort) is a getaway driver for heist arranger Doc (Kevin Spacey). Plagued by tinnitus, Baby tunes out his distracting “hum in the drum” by listening to music while he drives.
