This Coming Sunday is National Dog Day!

National Dog Day
National Dog Day is celebrated August 26th annually and serves to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year, and acknowledges family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. Dogs put their lives on the line every day – for their law enforcement partner, for their blind companion, for a child who is disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage. You can celebrate by planning a fun activity with your dog or contacting one of the local shelter/rescue groups in our area to learn about the various ways in which you can help them.

Dodgers Pitcher Chad Billingsley Supports the Berks ARL!

The Animal Rescue League of Berks County (ARL) is proud to announce that Los Angeles Dodgers’ starting pitcher and Berks County resident Chad Billingsley has committed to support the ARL’s 60th anniversary Diamond Jubilee celebration. For every strikeout thrown by Chad, he will donate $100 to the ARL and for every game he wins, Chad will donate $1000 to the ARL. To date, Chad raised $7,200 towards the Diamond Jubilee fundraiser. During a recent interview with Chad, he stated, “There wasn’t a single day of my life that we didn’t have a furry family member, and they were just that, members of our family. I now continue that with my own family, and our two dogs, Riley and Roxy. The Animal Rescue League best exemplifies the love and caring that all animals need. They go above and beyond any other animal shelter, to truly care for each animal coming through their door, and no one will ever be turned away. Hopefully, with my continued support, the Animal Rescue League will be able to help many more of our furry friends.” Here is your chance to play in the big leagues! Pledge a matching donation for Chad’s strikeouts and/or his game wins and get a chance to meet Chad. A $100 pledge gets you an invitation to the Meet and Greet on November 7 at the shelter; a $1000 pledge or greater gives you two tickets to join Chad at the Animal Rescue League’s Annual Gala on November 9th at the Reading Crowne Plaza. “Chad and Tiffany are two of the best people I have met in all of my years in animal rescue. They are true animal lovers and I am thrilled to have them as major supporters of the Animal Rescue League,” says Board President Barrie Pease.

ARL is quite full right now, especially since kitten season has begun. Once kittens arrive, the adult cats often get overlooked. In an effort to find good homes for as many pets as possible, the ARL is now offering half off the adoption fee for any pet who has been there for more than 3 months and free adoptions for any pet here longer than 6 months. Please look for the caption below each pet’s photo on the Adoptable Pets page for eligibility. Thank you for considering adult pets! For more information, please contact www.berkarl.org
