    Pet of the Week- Cherry!

    Meet Cherry our Pet of the Week!  As a stray, she may not have experienced a lot of hands on human contact but with a little help from the staff and volunteers here at the ARL she is adjusting nicely. Cherry prefers slow movements and soft pets until she is comfortable with her human but warms up quickly. She is adventurous and loves to go on walks, she enjoys soft treats and thinks chasing and de-fuzzing a tennis ball is the best! This little girl would do best in a home without small children.  For more information visit Berksarl.org.
