Another 4th of July has come and gone, and more animals were cowering in fear. Scared to death at the explosions occurring around them. Dogs, cats, horses and the rest have non idea it’s the 4th, and many of them are traumatized every year by these exhibitions. Animals in shelters often have no human contact during these nighttime hours, and the terror, once you’ve seen it, is palpable. This year, a group of people in Phoenix, Arizona decided to to something better with their time. They created “Comfort the Canines”, there to soothe the animals and give them a little human contact and love as the explosions bounced off the walls.
These are the type of people I want to spend my next 4th of July with. I really like this idea and hope it spreads. Giving back to those that love unconditionally is worth celebrating.
