Summer camp starts; don’t leave dogs in cars

Greetings Sonoma! Ahhh, summer is upon us and I like it! Our ninth annual Kids Summer Camp starts June 9, so if you haven’t signed up yet, please do so now. It is filling up quickly and is one of the more popular camps in town.

We have Lynette Lyon who will join us at camp every Wednesday with her collection of amazing rescue animals. You will see fenic foxes, servil cats, baby alligators, hedgehogs and more.

We have been experiencing some really hot days lately, so here’s a reminder to not leave your dog in the car even for a few minutes. The interior of your car heats up exponentially in proportion to the outside temperature even with your windows open.

When it’s 75 degrees outside, it’s 95 inside the car, 77 is 103 inside the car, 85 is 130 in the car ... well, you get the picture.

I’m a new dog owner myself, so this is something I have to keep in mind as well. No quick stops to the grocery store when the dogs in the car if it’s over 80 degrees. Perhaps it will motivate me to be more organized when I shop.

Kitten season has officially started and just last week, we got in more than 10 kittens with more on the way. They are all too young for adoption yet, but if you are interested in fostering, please go to petslifeline.org, click on “volunteer” and fill out a volunteer application. Our next foster orientation is June 21 and if the next few weeks are anything like last year, we will be needing additional foster families for July, August and September.
