One of A Kind Pet News
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?

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.
Having a pet is having a friend. For years, the Center for Disease Control has been stating the mental and physical health benefits associated with pet ownership.
