Artist John Coleman paints faces of pets on a mural at the Animal Hospital of Desert Hot Springs Save-A-Pet clinic in Desert Hot Springs, California, December 2, 2013. The resort town in California warned on November 12 that it will run out of money by March due to burdensome salary and pension costs and could join other U.S. cities that have recently filed for bankruptcy protection. A bankruptcy filing by Desert Hot Springs, a city of 26,000 about 110 miles (177 km) east of Los Angeles, would make it the third California city since 2012 along with San Bernardino and Stockton to seek court protection from creditors.
