Hi, my name is Arnie, and I am grateful for all the nice people at Beaumont Animal Services: the animal control officer who found me, the judge who didn’t let my old owners take me back, the kennel staff who give me food every day and keep my kennel clean. I am grateful for my bed. Would you believe my old bed was a pile of wood pallets? I am grateful that I will never have to feel the weight of a chain hanging from my neck again. I am grateful for all of the nice visitors who stop by my kennel, and the volunteers who give me lots of treats!

Hall of Fame rockers The Lovin’ Spoonful said it best in 1966: “Hot town, summer in the city.” We are now nearing the end of July, and temps will consistently be in the upper 90s.
