For most, the Fourth of July is a day of celebration with friends and family. But for animal shelters, it’s the reason for the largest intake day of their year: July 5th. Fireworks and other loud noises can take a dog that may normally be cool and collected and make them into a stressed escape artist. Animal control officers and good samaritans find a large number of lost dogs after the holiday and bring them to the shelter with the hope of reuniting them with their family.
Meet Petey! He is ACPB's littlest teeniest tiniest foster in the history of our organization.

If there’s one thing that’s become clear this year, it’s that we can’t seem to resist puppies. Yes, they’re pretty darn cute, and yes, they get adopted in the blink of an eye, but those aren't the only reasons we leave the shelter with our arms full of adorableness on occasion. Pulling puppies gives us a chance to help at risk mamas and babies.
