10 Ways to Keep Your Cat Cool This Summer

10 Ways to Keep Your Cat Cool This Summer

A cat that becomes overheated in summer can suffer from dehydration, shallow
breathing, and can even get heatstroke. Keeping your cat cool is an important
part of ensuring that he/she enjoys a safe and happy summer, especially if there’s
a heat wave.

1. Keep your cat calm
2. Create a “snug retreat”
3. Ensure that your outside area has shade for your cat to enjoy
4. Allow your cat to choose a cool spot for them to rest or hangout.
5. Use a damp towel to cool down your cat.
6. Brush the cat daily.
7. Use your cooling methods to cool them down as well.
8. Always provide access to a supply of cool water.
9. Create cool play for them.
10. Avoid the heatstroke conditions.

Thank You Bishop Gadsden!

Bishop Gadsden Episcopal Retirement Community displayed their passion for animals in an amazing show of support!  On Wednesday, February 21st, the Charitable Giving Fund awarded Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary a check for $34,000! These funds will go a long way in supporting the dogs and cats who may be less adoptable due to age, medical, or behavioral issues. Thank you Bishop Gadsden residents and staff for your generous spirit of giving!

Bridge Run For Their Lives

Bridge Run For Their Lives

This event is a “Peer to Peer” fundraiser meaning everyone who donates has the option of inviting their friends and colleagues to donate too! Our easy to use site allows participants to simply donate, join a team or start their own. Each team member can design their own web page to spread the word (through email or Facebook) encouraging support for their team and getting others to donate to the animals at Hallie Hill. So if you have a lot of contacts on your email list, or a lot of Facebook friends, consider joining a team for a pawsome cause! And best of all- you don’t have to run the bridge! Each team only needs one person participating in the Bridge Run on April 7th!
