Patriots, Paws and Pages

The 4th of July can be a stressful time for pets and people alike. Many pets are fearful of the loud noises created by fireworks, causing great anxiety. Having someone spend time reading to them during this stressful time will make a difference in their lives.
Help our shelter pets stay calm and safe during the 4th of July Celebrations by registering for our first ever Patriot, Paws and Pages. Active duty and veteran members of all branches of our armed forces – and any adult who cares about reducing shelter pets’ stress levels during the holiday, are encouraged to register to read to shelter cats and dogs.
Preregistration is required and space is limited. All participants must be at least 18 years of age.
