The Heat Is On to Save Lives

KittenSummer is a time of abundance, with food, fun, and celebrations aplenty. The warm weather and longer days mean a different sort of bounty for ARF — an overwhelming number of kittens.

Happy Tails: Juggler

JugglerIntelligent eyes, sweet face, and master of cool tricks, Juggler's new family knew she belonged center-ring. Now named Poppins - both for Mary Poppins and for her habit of popping her head up when anyone enters the room - her enthusiasm and superstar smarts has shown her family that she’s perfect in every way. She's even made her modeling debut, winning “Pet of the Month” at Lucky Supermarkets. The only word to describe Poppins’ new life is obvious: supercalifragi…well, you know the rest!
