There are some great tips for helping your pet through the summer heat, as well as providing comfort during Fourth of July fireworks events that can sometimes be quite unnerving for kitties and puppies who would prefer a little peace and quiet. It’s true, the Fourth of July can be a pretty stressful time for animals, as they’re not used to all of the booms and racket caused by fireworks. Those things sure are pretty to watch, but most of the time we’re hiding under the bed and don’t get to see them.

The graphic below also has some great tips and information for you to help your pet beat the heat.

We hope that you and your pets enjoy a safe and happy Independence Day, and we hope to see you at our shelter very soon! We’re even holding a special adoption special on Friday July 4, with special adoption hours from 11am to 4pm that day.

We are also open every weekend from 10am – 4pm Saturday and 1pm to 4pm on Sundays for adoptions and visiting the kitties. Check out our website at http://www.catsociety.org for information about volunteering opportunities, adoption, fostering, and much more. We always appreciate your help and support!
