Don’t let friends overheat in dog days of summer

Well I do believe that we are experiencing the “Dog Days of Summer,” don’t you?

If you think we’re in discomfort can you imagine how our furry friends feel? When temps are this high it’s important to keep your pets indoors or in the shade and hydrated. Cars get TOO HOT and pavements can burn their paws, so take care of not only yourselves but them too during these brutal days.

It’s time for the annual ROFF Summer Raffle. The drawing will be held on Aug. 7 at 2 p.m. There are five prize categories and the grand prize is a Char-Broil gas grill, grill cover, utensil set, grilling foil, cleaning brush, LED handle light, digital probe thermometer, Weber grill spray, sauce and rub, and a $50 gift card to Wilson’s Meats and Groceries.

The donation for a ticket is ONLY $5! Get your tickets now and good luck.


Drumroll please … introducing Smoke!

“Hey, check me out! I’m a saint … well, a Saint Bernard. I’m 4 years old and I have all my shots and I have tested negative for all those nasty diseases. On July 30 I’m going to be neutered and have my back dewclaws removed. (Not looking forward to that!) I’m housebroken, I love other dogs and cats but I have not been crate trained. And you know what? Those tiny humans scare me a bit. I have found that humans that are 10 years old and older are just fine. Come on over for a meet and greet! See you soon!”


Now, take a look at these three munchkins! Meet “Tess,” “Snickers” and “Bubbles.” They are about 10 weeks old, litter trained and have had their first vaccinations. They are so playful and friendly and would add joy and fun to your household. These adorable kittens are hunkered down at “The Cattery” in Reedsville and are waiting for you to give them a real home.


Applications for adoptions can be found on our website: www.roffrescue.wordpress.com, or call 1-877-933-ROFF (7633). We understand that not everyone can adopt a pet but would you please consider making a donation to ROFF? Checks may be made out to ROFF and mailed to: ROFF, PO Box 6, Lewistown, PA 17044. Thank you so much!

Until they all have homes…
