ARRI Holiday Photo Booth
Thank you to all who came out this past Saturday to have their furry best friend photographed at ARRI's annual Holiday Photo Booth event. If you missed it, fear not. Another one takes place 12/10, noon to 4 p.m.! See you then! Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Meow! My name is Mio and I am a 2-and-a-half-year-old domestic longhair mix. I have been here at the shelter since March! While I do love my temporary residence, what I really want is a home for the holidays. I am a very laid-back cat, content to sunbathe on your couch while you brush me.
Thanks to a generous donation by David Lerner of the Clicker Institute, ARRI has installed the first-of-its-kind, iPet Companion system so online visitors can play with our shelter cats and kittens in real time.
We love sharing notes from families who have recently adopted our rescues. "Felix is doing great! He is such a happy cat and lives up to his name. He fetches and retrieves things and jumps so high. He loves stuffed animals and plays with his octopus a lot. He follows us around the house and lays at our feet wherever we are. So far, he likes being in a puppy playpen and walking with a harness so he is able to safely be outdoors with us. Thanks, Nicole, for introducing us to such a wonderful cat and everyone at the shelter for giving him a such a good start."
ARRI's “How to Bring a Rescue Dog Home,” a free, two-hour class for new adopters in Rhode Island, is getting rave reviews! The next class takes place Sunday, December 18, noon to 2 p.m. For more info or to reserve a spot, please contact Shelter Manager Jennifer Gebar, 401-783-7606, ext. 104.
