Last week in “The Days of Our Nine Lives,” the cats were evaluating the fine qualities each possesses.

Dovey: So, want to hear the latest? As the office cat, I’m privy to all the ARF business, you know.

Bobbie: OK, spill it!

Dovey: First of all, some of us might be leaving ARF this weekend, because Saturday the 23rd is the Clear the Shelter event. Any of us can be adopted for only $20!

Leia: Yippee! I’m so, so excited. I hope I find a home.

Dovey: ARF humans are teaming up with NBC4, who is sponsoring this event. And adopting families will take home gifts from Petco!

Bill: Wow, now that’s cool.

Ginger: This is the best news I’ve heard in weeks. What else have you learned, Dovey?

Dovey: ARF has two dogs now!

Bill: What’s the 411 on the canines?


Dovey: There’s Paris, who is about 8-years old. She’s a shepherd-mix and is so good with other dogs. But she doesn’t really care about us cats. She’s very calm and likes to take easy walks.

Ginger: Whew! That will be good when she’s in the ARF House.

Dovey: And then there’s Bailey. She’s a youngster, maybe a year old, and she’s an Irish Wolfhound-mix. She’s sooo beautiful! She is good with dogs and cats, she’s really calm for being so young and she absolutely loves every human she meets.

Bobbie: Sounds a lot like me. You know, the “loving humans” part.


Dovey: The ARF humans were going nuts over both of these dogs. They say they’ll probably find homes very quickly.

Bobbie: I just hope lots and lots of people show up on Saturday to help ARF Clear the Shelter and take us home.

How many ARF pets will be adopted this Saturday? Be sure to keep up with the animal antics of “The Days of our Nine Lives” each week. And please stop in to say hello to the entire adoptable cast at the ARF House, 26890 Hwy. 243 on Saturdays 10-4 and Sundays 10-2, or by appointment M-F by calling 951-659-1122.
