One of A Kind Education
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.
National Pet ID Week always begins on April 17th and runs for seven days. One of A Kind Pet Rescue was founded fifteen years ago due to a lost pet. This is clearly a topic that is very near and dear to our hearts, and why we require all our adopters to purchase an ID tag.
Almost daily, we are contacted by individuals saying, “We would like to rescue rather than purchase.” We are so appreciative of those individuals, as they truly understand the problem of pet homelessness and the great need to save so many companion animals.
These are very uncertain times, but One of A Kind Pet Rescue has been focusing on how to safely continue rescuing pets in the most need, while also finding them forever homes. The following changes have been established.
Urbanley was surrendered to One of A Kind Pet Rescue in June of 2018. The purpose of sharing Urbanley’s story is to showcase the incredible work that happens at One of A Kind Pet Rescue.
