There is always a need for bleach at the shelter, and you may wonder why. It is the disinfectant most used to prevent the spread of disease.
Wish List Tia
Dishes are washed in soapy water, rinsed in clear, then soaked in bleach water. Bleach is used in all the laundry (and there’s a lot of laundry to be done). Bleach is also used in the drains to clean them. Bleach is vital to the health and well-being of the animals. Other needed items include
Metal dog bowls Clean used towels, blankets, or mattress pads Thank you for your generous donations!

Becky Aguirre, and daughters Ilennia and Felicitas, planned and organized the Yappy Days event as a fundraiser for ACARF patterned on a similar event held in Wichita.
The planning it was done, In miniscule detail. Nothing was forgotten; Yappy Days—it could not fail. The hot dogs were a heatin’, Prize baskets wrapped and bowed. Auction items were assembled, All were waiting for cars to unload. But—lo!—came Mother Nature, Without even an invite! She brought cold air and dampness And covered the bright sunlight. So much for all the planning, The ‘dogs and the pretty ties. When all was done and over, Mother Nature took First Prize. But Yappy Days took Second And that’s just not too bad! All had a good time. Made some money. We’re Glad! Thank you, Becky!

There's just something special about Angelina.
her loving nature, and the way she sweetly leans into your outstretched hand.
It might be her gorgeous, tuxedo-style
eyes. Look for pictures and descriptions of all available cats and dogs on our website www.acarf.org
One of the most outstanding things about Angelina,
however, are her whiskers. They are very white against the very black background of her face; it's almost as if she chose them carefully to go with her coat. Angelina is a beautiful, unusual, and fabulously feminine cat. And she has the accessories to prove it!
