Many pets get lost around Independence Day!

This week is one the worst for pets getting lost. If YOUR pet is lost, use these tips to help find her: 

Meow, meow, meow! I'm hungry!

Yikes! We currently have 115 kittens 3 months of age and younger - lots of hungry mouths to feed! We could really use some Fancy Feast canned kitten food, Royal Canin Baby Cat food (canned and dry for critical care needs), and gallon-size Ziploc bags. If you could drop these off at the shelter, that would be fantastic. We also have an Amazon Wish List - most orders greater than $35 ship to the shelter for free.

Summer has not even officially started yet, but the hot weather sure has arrived, with forecasts of temperatures in the 90's all week.  Did you know that dogs are susceptible to heat stroke?  Unlike humans, dogs don't perspire. They pant to cool off, and if panting is not enough, their body temperature can rise to dangerous levels that can be fatal.  Read this article to find out what to look for and what actions to take if you suspect your dog has heat stroke, including when a trip to your vet is in order.
