Giving Tuesday

We all know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday but have you heard about #GivingTuesday?

The holiday season can be very busy and it can be very easy to get lost in the commodities.  Sometimes, we forget what the holidays are all about. This year, on Tuesday, December 2, we can all be part of a call to action that will change the calendar and help make history.  We can celebrate a day dedicated to giving- when charities, families, businesses, community centers, students, retailers, and more will come together for #GivingTuesday- a movement to kick-off the holiday giving season.

Please join us in this celebration by donating to the Animal Welfare League of Arlington on #GivingTuesday.  We also encourage you to use #GivingTuesday on your social media pages to share your impact with your friends. Let’s make it our goal to improve the lives of animals in our own community.

Rabies & Microchipping Clinic

Rabies shot: $10.00

Microchip (including registration): $30.00

Please bring proof of a prior rabies shot (a rabies certificate, not a tag) to get a three-year rabies shot. Without it, your pet will receive a one-year shot. Waiting is outdoors, so please dress for the weather. All dogs must be on leash and cats must be in carriers.

Please bring cash. It will make everyone’s wait shorter.

Give your pet the protection of a 24PetWatch MiniChip. At one third the size of standard microchip technology, the 24PetWatch MiniChip is the right size for every pet, including cats, kittens, and small breed dogs which often go without microchip protection.

Baby-Ready Pets

Babies and petsEvery year, thousands of animals are turned into shelters by parents concerned about how their pet may affect the health and safety of their new baby. Any pet can have undesirable, although natural reactions to a new baby. New sounds, smells, and activities surrounding an infant may cause a pet to see the baby as competition, prey, or even a toy.

Baby-Ready Pets offers preparation and assistance to help expectant families prepare their home and their pets for the arrival of the new baby and to make sure that it is a safe and (relatively) stress-free experience for all. This seminar is based on a program created by the Providence Animal Rescue League and the Rhode Island SPCA, and has been endorsed by the ASPCA. The Animal Welfare League of Arlington?s staff will present Baby-Ready Pets for expectant parents in a two-hour workshop at the League.

After the program, participants may call or e-mail follow-up questions if they need additional support. Participants will also receive helpful handouts and a CD of baby sounds to help desensitize their pets to the sounds of the new arrival. This is a HUMAN-ONLY class, please leave your pets at home.

There is no fee for the class, but donations are welcome. Reservations are required and space is limited. To make a reservation or for more information, please e-mail amintz@awla.org or call (703) 931-9241 x246 with the following information:

the number and type of pets that you have in your home (including breed and size);
your approximate due date;
your phone number and email address;
the number of people attending.

You will receive an e-mail to confirm that space is available and you are registered.
