ARR Receives Grant from Bissell Pet Foundation

We are grateful to Bissell Pet Foundation for their recent generosity to Animal Refugee Response.

Through their “Feed the Shelters” program, Bissell Pet Foundation is supporting our shelter cats with a grant for $500 for canned food. 

Our sincere thanks to Bissell Pet Foundation for helping our cats’ time with us be extra special. They look forward to their wet food each day, especially the elderly ones.

Cat Loft Mural Project Celebrated

The well-loved loft in our cat environment, built by Keith Anderson includes sleeping cubbies, backed by wood with cat-sized peep holes. When Keith fashioned cat ears to the top, those peep holes became eyes, and all that was left was to paint the cats he envisioned.

We were very lucky when two talented artists stepped forward. Susie Guyett began the painting with brilliant, happy colors. When Susie had to return to South Dakota before she finished, Olivia Guralas picked up the paint brushes. She continued the project with her own artistic flair. Now complete, the mural of happy cats welcomes all into our cat area.

ARR finds homes for 38 dogs from Contra Costa Animal Services

Dogs that find themselves at Animal Control with “behavior issues” or medical/age issues, are often the ones left behind when offered for adoption or rescue. Their time is limited.

In a partnership with Contra Costa Animal Services, Animal Refugee Response is taking these dogs and working with them until they are ready for adoption. Many of them just need to be held and talked to. Others need a home-like routine. And some, of course need medical care. It takes a lot of time and effort, but we are proud to say that as of mid June, 2020, we have found loving homes for 38 of these dogs so far.
