Hey, I’m Cardigan! I’m a 6-year-old spayed female DSH brown and black tiger at the Berks ARL. I’ve been at the shelter since October and I’m getting very lonely here. I don’t want to spend my golden years by myself. I’m very sweet and affectionate. I love being petted, snuggling, and giving kisses. I’m looking for a steady companion to travel on the road of life with.

Effective January 1, the ARL has upgraded their volunteer dog walking policy. They are now using a color coding system. All volunteer dog walkers will be able to walk the dogs labeled “green.” In order to walk the dogs labeled “purple,” you will need to attend one of our volunteer orientation classes. Once completed, then you will be allowed to walk both “green” and “purple” coded dogs. All attendees must be over 16 years of age.
Please email Kristi at email@example.com to register for one of them.
