July 2017

Record-breaking June for Adoptions
June saw new records in animals adopted at ARF: 305 dogs and cats found loving homes, the most ever in one month. We are grateful for your partnership in our work and know there is more work to be done; many more lives to be saved.

During the summer months, ARF never takes a break from saving lives. It is the crucial time of year when abandoned pets and new litters flood into public shelters in staggering numbers, stretching resources to the limit and forcing heartbreaking choices to be made to accommodate the overwhelming number of dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens that continue to arrive.

Pet Tip: 4th of July Safety
4th of July  
While Independence Day usually makes for a fun and carefree day for people, it’s often a dangerous time for our four-legged companions. Fireworks exploding in the air are a particularly scary and confusing experience for animals. Keep them secure inside in a quiet environment with plenty of water. Additionally, playing some calming music to distract them from the booming noise outside can be an easy way to alleviate some of their anxiety. Learn more in ARF’s Pet Care and Behavior Library.
