Fireworks are a strain on any animal. Combine that with the stress of being in a shelter, it’s enough to cause major meltdowns.

Bradshaw Animal Shelter in Sacramento sent out a call for volunteers to help comfort their shelter dogs during the 4th of July. While the fireworks are booming, volunteers will be providing comfort by talking, reading, singing, and distracting the animals from the commotion going on outside.

The call was answered in a big way by several kindhearted souls.

Due to an overwhelming response, both comfort sessions on the 4th of July; 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. and 8:00 – 9:30 p.m. are filled.

If you’re still interested, there is a wait list. Email ingridc@saccounty.net to be put on the list.

If you need me, I’ll be at home comforting my own pets.

**Update 6/28 10 am: Both sessions have now filled up. Please email ingridc@saccounty.net to be put on the wait…
