One of A Kind Education
Colder temperatures can affect our pets too. Even with their furry coats, they can feel the impact of colder weather. From increased joint stiffness to the risk of being left in cold cars, here is a list of how the cold weather can effect your four-legged friend.
We love to see cats and kittens happily playing, but what we don’t enjoy seeing are the cats and kittens who are out in the elements trying to survive. Sadly, there are large populations of cats and kittens that do not have homes and are feral.
According to the American Humane Society, 10 million pets go missing in the U.S. every year. Sadly, only 15 percent of dogs and 2 percent of cats without tags or microchips are reunited with their families. When you leave a shelter or adoption center your pet should have on a collar and an ID.
It is exciting to adopt a furry friend. You walk into an Adoption Center or rescue shelter and see the precious eyes, wagging tails, tilted heads, and hear the purring voices- but there are things to keep in mind before you take a furry friend home.
Annually pets are euthanized due to lack of shelters and loving homes. You can make a difference by having your pet(s) sterilized. Spaying and neutering can also help to reduce other serious health and behavioral issues.
Senior dogs seeking a new forever home have found themselves without their humans for a variety of reasons. When you adopt a senior pet you are giving them a second chance–one they so deserve!
We recently rescued 28 dogs, including many moms and their puppies from a hoarding situation. Sadly, there are many animals that find themselves in undesirable conditions like this.
We look forward to the 4th of July and its celebratory nature – cookouts, outdoor activities & of course, fireworks! There are some things to keep in mind while you enjoy the 4th with your furry friends..
We long for hot sunny days, and spending time outdoors with our furry friends but there are precautions to keep in mind. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals offers some tips on keeping our pets safe.
Summer traveling season is upon us! Though we are very excited to travel and vacation, especially after being home for so long over the winter season and Covid quarantine, our pets may not possess the same sentiment. To keep everyone safe and happy as possible, we have provided a few tips and tricks to consider while traveling.
Heartworm disease is a very dangerous and often fatal disease that occurs in multiple animals. Many assume that it is only present in domestic dogs, but heartworms can infect wolves, coyotes, foxes, and cats. This presents the reason why it is so transmittable. The disease is transmitted via mosquito and is present in all fifty states.
We are finally feeling the sun and as most of you know, the warm weather brings fleas and ticks. Did you know that there are about 2,000 different types of fleas and 800 different variations of ticks found throughout the world? We have discussed the importance of prevention in the past, but we feel a bit more education on the topic could be beneficial.
Have you ever had a disagreement with your very best friend or closest family member? Surely, we can all answer that question with a very quick “yes.” Especially in this time of a pandemic when we are all at home together with one another. The reality is, dogs are just like people and they experience these negative emotions too.
May 11th has been named “National Animal Disaster Preparedness Day.” How many of us are prepared for a disaster, and have made provisions for our pets as well? Regardless of your geographic location, there are steps that can be taken to be prepared should an emergency arise.
We are so excited to be celebrating “National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day!” and doing what we do best. Technically, we are a rescue, and not-so-much a shelter, but the fact of the matter is that we are all working together to solve the national problem of pet homelessness.
