Adoptable Pet of the Week: Cali

Say hi to Cali, the newest Adoptable Pet of the Week! Cali is a treat loving girl that loves watching Netflix and is looking for her forever home.

Cali’s friends at Animal Welfare League of Arlington, which is currently at or near capacity for its dog kennels, had this to say:

Cali’s favorite things are: treats, nose boops, cuddles, sticking her head out during car rides, and more treats in between!

Her special talent is: making sure to meet her quota of sniffing 2,000 blades of grass a day!

Her perfect day would be: wrapped up in a blanket and watching Netflix on the couch all day! She is now a Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul fan!

If Cali was an ice cream flavor, she would be: Being in Cali’s presence will leave you floating like a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a strawberry soda.

Important facts about Cali: She may have that big dog bark, but all she really wants to do is sniff the heck out of you and be your best friend.

Are you and Cali a match? Check out her complete profile to learn more and to meet Cali in-person!

Yes, live performances at theaters have begun again. Good news for patrons, good news for actors and crews, and good news for the industry overall, right? Well, yes and no as COVID is proving to be a powerful enemy. “The show must go on” is still the mantra — unless a cast or crew member tests positive. Then the curtain must fall for about a week — incurring huge financial losses for theaters, including paying the contracted professionals and refunding ticketholders. Production costs also now include purchasing testing equipment which can run into tens of thousands of dollars each month for larger theaters.

How can we help them continue to keep their doors open?

Go see a show and urge others to do the same! Word of mouth is the best means of filling theater seats!
