Our staff and volunteers will be on hand to care for the animals, but we will not be manning phones or checking emails. We hope you and your canine friend can get out and enjoy the holiday, no matter the weather! 

Remember, itโ€™s never a good idea to leave your pets alone in a locked car, even for only a short time. The guide below shows just how quickly the inside of a car can get dangerously hot, even in mild temperatures like today. That means that even โ€œjust for a minuteโ€ can be long enough to have devastating effects for your pet. In most cases, itโ€™s best to just leave Fido at home rather than risk their health and safety. Letโ€™s keep summertime safe and fun for all!
We have a Happy Homes story about a lovely little cat named Flora who reminds us that even the shy, scared, or timid pets deserve a chance at a loving home. More often than not, once an animal gets adopted, they blossom into a truly outgoing and friendly companion who just needed a home environment to shine! Here's what Flora's parents have to say about her! 

"Flora joined our family about two years ago, and has brought immense joy, comfort, and affection to us since then. The day that I came into to AWS, the member I met with mentioned that this blue-eyed beauty was very, very shy. Nobody other than those caring for her had any luck getting her to trust. With another shy kitty at home, I knew to enter the room cautiously. I remember that Flora was curled up in a corner under a cat tree. I quietly sat on the floor just to get a good look at her. She perked her head up, crawled over, and promptly laid down in my lap. If I hadnโ€™t already had my heart set on her, that wouldโ€™ve sealed the deal right then and there!
Now, this kitty is THE definition of a cuddle bug. She sleeps in her humans bed each night, purrs louder than any kitty Iโ€™ve ever known, and demands attention vocally if it isnโ€™t given in a time deemed appropriate to her. She has two other kitty friends, along with her sister that she loves to play with, and she spends her days either lounging in the sun, or curled up right next to her people. Thank you AWS, for everything you do!"
