One of A Kind Pet News
September 16-22 is “Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet Week.” There are numerous factors that could cause a pet to be considered “less adoptable”. In simple terms, any pet who is having difficulty being adopted from a rescue or shelter for a specific reason is “less adoptable.”
To recognize this special month, we would like to discuss a topic that is very important to all of us at One of A Kind: when cats should be indoors, when they should be outdoors and when the transition could be made from outdoor to indoor.
September is Responsible Dog Ownership Month. Adopting a dog into your family comes with great responsibility and should not be taken lightly. We encourage everyone to follow these guidelines when thinking about adding a new furry family member.
August 22nd is National Take Your Cat to the Vet day. Many may ask why it’s necessary to take your furry feline to the vet if they are perfectly healthy. Just as we take our children for well visits to monitor their overall health and growth, we must do the same for our pets.
August 17th is International Homeless Animals Day. This day is huge for us at One of A Kind. All of our pets are homeless, and all of us have dedicated our lives to finding their forever homes. The goal is to place every pet who enters our facility into loving, permanent care.
It’s National Immunization Awareness Month and we must not forget our furry loved ones! This a perfect opportunity to remind everyone to get the appropriate vaccines for their cats and dogs. As a pet owner, it is crucial to know when and why your pets need their routine immunizations and preventions. We are here to fill you in!
