Animal Shelter Fundraisers

Animal Shelter Fundraisers

During the Fall, many local animal shelters hold special events to raise money to support their services. Local shelters and humane societies are always in need of support such as food donations for the animals, monetary support to build better facilities or having someone provide a loving home to a dog or a cat. Some of the events that these organizations hold are dog walk-a-thons, dog contests, auctions, adoption events and even “Yappy Hours” where local pubs and restaurants have special menu items for dogs and the proceeds support local shelters. If you are interested in participating or volunteering in an event, we encourage you to check out your local animal shelter or humane society for more information about their pet events.

Fun Fall Activities For Dogs

Fun Fall Activities For Dogs

Now that Fall is here, you’re probably thinking of some fun activities that   you can do with your dog outside before winter sets in. Well here are few ideas to help get you started:

Take a Hike!! Nothing sounds better than exploring tree lined trails and admiring the changing leaves with your furry best friend right by your side. But before you head out on any trail, make sure that you bring plenty of food and water for your dog and even a coat in case he or she gets chilly.

Playtime in the Yard!! Along with playing your favorite games, your dog might enjoy jumping into a nice big pile of leaves. This would even be a good time to practice your dog’s training skills. But when you go outside make sure that your pet avoids any snakes that are getting ready to hibernate and mushrooms that are growing in your yard.

Family Outings!! Take your dog out on a picnic or for a run at a local park. If dogs are allowed, bring them with you on a visit to a pumpkin patch. 

Tell us about your dog’s favorite Fall activity!!

Dogs & Chocolate

Dogs & Chocolate

If your canine companion is more family member than pet, you may be in the habit of sharing the foods your family loves with him.

Although some people foods are fine in moderation, this is definitely not the case with chocolate.

Chocolate can sicken and even kill dogs, and it is one of the most common causes of canine poisoning, according to veterinarians.

Veterinarian Michelle DeHaven says the worst case of chocolate poisoning she ever saw happened when some owners fed their eight-pound poodle a pound of chocolate on his birthday.

“We had to treat the dog with fluids and anti-seizure medication for five days,” says DeHaven, who practices in Smyrna, Ga. “Every time we stopped the meds he would start seizuring again. You wouldn’t feed a kid a pound of chocolate, but they fed it to a small dog.”

No amount of chocolate is OK for your dog to consume. Dark chocolate and baker’s chocolate are riskiest; milk and white chocolate pose a much less serious risk.

Halloween candy should be kept out of reach and away from your furry friends! Try keeping your chocolate in the fridge, less temptation for your dog and your treats will stay fresh longer!

Keeping your dog safe

Keeping your dog safe

The “dog days” of summer can be dangerous for dogs — especially those dogs left inside hot cars. Every year, countless dogs die after being locked in cars while their owners work, visit, shop, or run other errands. These tragic deaths are entirely preventable.
