We hope you and your pets have a safe holiday! Here are some of our favorite safety tips to keep Fourth of July fun for everyone:
- Keep your pets inside! The loud noises and bright lights of fireworks spook animals and can cause them to run away from home to seek shelter. Keep your animals indoors, and make sure your dog is on a leash at all times, even in your own backyard, when you let them out to relieve themselves.
- Make sure your pets have plenty of water! The hot weather all weekend is sure to have your pets drinking more water than normal, so make sure to keep filling their bowls up!
- Make sure your pet is microchipped! Accidents happen, and should they get lost on the Fourth a microchip ID is your best bet to ensure they are returned to you. Having your pet microchipped allows shelters and veterinary offices to scan your pet's information and contact you if they are lost.
If your pet isn't microchipped, take advantage of our Fourth of July special now through July 3rd to get your pet microchipped for only $15! Or, come in after the holiday and get your pet microchipped for our regular, low-cost price of only $25.
Microchipped is done daily in the Dog and Cat Adoption Centers from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm. For more information, call 559-233-8554.
Happy Fourth of July from all of us at the Valley Animal Center!

Students from Clovis North High School joined Valley Animal Center volunteers and trainer Glenn Farris from Alpha K9 Training at the shelter this Saturday for a fun, two-hour dog training seminar with our shelter animals. In addition to obedience training, the lucky shelter pups got plenty of exercise, and lots of love and treats!

Garfield Elementary School raised more than $900 for the animals! Go Cubs - thank you for your continued support!
The Valley Animal Center joined Gnarly Charlie from KISS Country for fun live radio remotes, collecting donations for the animals while helping the station raffle off the ever-coveted Taylor Swift concert tickets!
And last but not least...
The Paw Party with Event Sponsor Union Bank was a huge success!
Thank you to everyone who volunteered collecting change on the street corners, and to everyone who brought their donations to the 2010 fundraiser into the Fashion Fair Mall branch during the party on May 1st. We really appreciate all of your support!
