Adoptable dogs Smokey, Liesl, Hansel, and Gretel (and adoptable cat Imogene) all got a chance to take some dance lessons yesterday with Ballet Sun Valley’s Artistic Director and principal dancer at American Ballet Theatre in NYC, Isabella Boylston!
There are still limited seats available for Ballet Sun Valley performances tonight and tomorrow at the Sun Valley Pavilion! Get your tickets here: http://balletsunvalley.com/tickets/
Also – you can learn more about Isabella’s adorable animal understudies (we think Smokey has a real knack for ballet) below:

With the loud fireworks, exciting new smells, crowds of people, and general celebrations – July 4th can be a stressful day for pets. Before you head out to begin your festivities, check out the tips below to help keep your pet safe & happy during the holiday!
It’s FuriOsa, not Furiosah! Like Hermione, Furiosa is smart, quick thinking, and will tell you if something is wrong. Including basic obedience commands, Fury has all the traits to be a true Gryffindor- she’s patient, trustworthy and a true friend. While at a camping trip, Fury proved she can be trusted off leash. Initial greetings are still hard for her; thinking like the smart lady she is, who wants a complete stranger in their personal space?? Once she sees her foster brother relax, she relaxes too. But she’s still a little wary… he-who-must-not-be-named could be anywhere! With more training and love, FuriOsa will continue growing to be a magical mutt!
Ruby is a longer term resident who would love a break from the shelter!

It’s time to breathe easy!
Did you know that a healthy shelter environment requires a minimum of 14 full fresh air exchanges per hour? The mechanical systems required to prevent the spread of disease when housing a large number of animals together is nuts – the 13 rooftop units are each the size of a Volkswagon Bug! This means the adoptable animals will be healthier and happier, while the humans enjoy a pleasant and non-stinky shelter experience. 🙂

Meet Dexter! She is a ridiculously cute, friendly, curious young cat. Like most cats, she has an independent streak, but loves getting and giving attention as well. Some family should come bust this lovely cat out of the shelter, as she will be an amazing family pet and a great addition to your home. Dexter can’t wait to meet you- don’t keep her waiting!
We want to send out a big thank you to Dog Is My CoPilot, Inc. for making another incredible rescue flight happen! On Tuesday, Dog is My Copilot flew into Friedman Memorial Airport and dropped off a big crew of dogs from a shelter in New Mexico that was all out of space.
Keep your eyes peeled for these new dogs (including a few puppies) who will become available for adoption soon!
