Redwood Pals Rescue experienced a fun time at Arcata’s Fourth of July parade! It’s possible you noticed us. We introduced 3 shelter canines – Tico, Rosie and Kimmie – to accompany Sparky the Kinetic Foster Doggy. 

My aged guy Hank arrived along for moral help as he is very the veteran of Kinetics and parades. 

We were so pleased with how properly the dogs behaved with the crowds and the loud noises! They had been delighted to acquire pets and hugs from the little ones and older people that came about to satisfy them. We could see their noses twitching when the llamas caught up to us at the stop of the parade but the pet dogs nevertheless managed to manage their composure!

Sweet Kimmie is the eighth doggy to come into the shelter this calendar year who has tested optimistic for heartworm.  

We are on the lookout for a foster residence wherever Kimmie can go by way of her treatment. Fosters do get the first chance to adopt and whoever fosters this lady will never want to enable her go! 


Kimmie is about 9 decades outdated and will get together with anyone. Hank offers her two paws up! She likes a wonderful stroll or a superior snuggle. She is so very good-natured and is a excellent ambassador for the bully breeds. The foster gets the pleasurable of pet dog possession without having the financial obligation of her therapy. All professional medical costs are lined by the shelter’s Crisis Medical Fund. 

The treatment method time is generally about two months, probably a little more time to accommodate the pre-treatment method which has not began however.
