Dogs Rescued in Jefferson County, Arkansas Available for Adoption in Florida and Tennessee

Happy Friday everyone!

I read today on the Humane Society website that there are 46 dogs recently rescued in Jefferson County, Arkansas that are now available for adoption. These poor dogs were rescued from unsafe and unsanitary conditions and are now looking for pet parents that can love them and take care of them properly.

The dogs will soon be moved to Florida and Tennessee, where they look to be adopted. If you live in those states, or know somebody who does, please share this information with them. The organizations handling the adoption process in Florida and Tennessee are:

  • Florida: Alachua County Humane Society, Humane Society of Naples, Humane Society of Tampa Bay, Humane Society of Sarasota County, SPCA Tampa Bay, Tri-County Animal Rescue
  • Tennessee: Humane Educational Society

Have a good weekend everyone!

Dogs Abandoned on Hot Roof in New Jersey – Some People are Animals!

This story is just disgusting and horrifying. Two poor dogs were recently left abandoned on a tar roof in New Jersey that was so hot, the tar was literally bubbling. And they were left up there without any water! This literally makes me sick to my stomach.

The Associated Humane Popcorn Park Shelter in New Jersey’s largest city says it got a call about two dogs in severe distress on the rooftop Friday, and its officers found a pit bull and Yorkie frantically “dancing” in an effort to stop their paws from burning as temperatures soared to 96 degrees.

If your stomach is strong enough can read the whole story from NBC New York if you click here. Special shout out to The Associated Humane Popcorn Park Shelter whose officers went up to the roof and rescued them. Very happy and thankful that they did! According to the story, the dogs have received medical care and are now recovering. Lets hope these puppies fully recover and this story has a happy ending.

We’ve talked a lot recently about the importance of keeping your dogs cool in the summer so this seems like a good time to mention again the tips we’ve provided to help you do just that.

Also glad that somebody noticed these dogs were in distress and did the right thing by calling the proper authorities so they could be rescued. “See something say something” applies to situations like this as well.

Regular readers of this blog know we spend a lot of time talking about the overall health and well being of Samoyeds. But of course, many of the things we discuss apply to all dog breeds.

With the mercury soaring outside, it’s very important you actively do things to keep your dog cool in the summer heat. I recently wrote a blog post about ways you can keep your dog cool which you can read by CLICKING HERE.

The New York Times is also giving this topic some much needed attention. There’s an article in yesterday’s Sunday edition I wanted to share with you called “Keeping New York Dogs Cool as the City Heats Up.” The article mentions many of the same things we discussed in our blog post such as the importance of keeping your dog’s feet cool and bringing water with you on your walks. These things are important everywhere, but particularly important if you live in a big city like I do.

“About This Petition
