The Cutest Music Judges Ever!

Introducing the 2024 season of musical talent judges!

Their baby whimpers for attention, cries at meal time, and sibling play barks let us know that they are well qualified to critique anyone who hits the stage.

Welcome to fosters Luke, Richie, and Katie. We love you already!

These babies are 4.5ish weeks old. Mom (a lab/golden mix) was poisoned (by a suspected neighbor). Dad was either the springer spaniel or the St. Bernard of the home.

These babies are accepting applications now, however it will be a while before they can go to forever homes.

Spotlight On: MAHINA!

Spotlight On: MAHINA!

This big girl is big on love! When you sit down, Mahina jumps right up next to you to be brushed or petted. She loves the attention, and her sweet face is sure to make you smile!

Mahina came into the program with kittens. After they were weaned, she put on a little post-pregnancy weight, but she’s hitting the treadmill to get back in shape.

Mahina has been with ARFP since July 2022. As much as we love her, we know it’s time for her to find her forever home. Could that be you? Or someone you know?

You can meet Mahina at the Next Step Adoption Center on Saturdays from 9 AM to noon. Or fill out a no-obligation application today!

Tiny Toes and Peeking Peepers

Tiny Toes and Peeking Peepers

Daphne’s kittens are eleven days old now, and they’re growing by leaps and bounds! Folks say kids grow like weeds, but they’ve got nothing on newborn kittens.

The kittens have doubled in size already. They’re getting more active, learning to meow, and — this is a biggie — THEIR EYES ARE OPENING!

A tiny tabby kitten with eyes barely opened
Blink! Blink!

I love that cute little face!

Of course, with more activity comes new challenges — like how to get a nap when your siblings are bound and determined to belly up to the milk bar. Even if that means sticking a foot in your mouth or shoving you out of the way.

If you ask him, that kitten says he was roaring at the end, not yawning. Whichever it was, it was cute!

Daphne is also making the kittens take on some of the responsibility for keeping themselves clean.

Well, they’re young. They’ll get better at it.

Oh, and you’ll be happy to know that the kitten that had that loooooong umbilical cord still attached has dropped it.

As for Daphne, she’s like a whole different cat!

We’ve learned that treats are her weakness. And she loves to be petted. We are no longer allowed to go into Chad’s office without paying the Daphne toll — which essentially amounts to petting her. And petting her. And petting her some more.

She spent some time today sitting on the bookcase by the window, behind Chad, watching the birds in the yard. It’ll still be several weeks before the kittens are weaned and Daphne can start looking for her forever home. But when she does, I have no doubts that someone will fall in love with her fast.

Yoga: Good for the Body, Good for the Soul

And, of course, ARFP will be there with adoptable pets for you to meet. So mark your calendar for some cat poses and downward dog that will not only be good for your body, but good for the homeless pets in our community, too!

Greene St. in Greensboro will be hosting ARFP from 5-9 PM to help us raise money to pay for medical costs for our foster puppies and kittens.
