National Animal Shelter Appreciation Month – November 1, 2012

November 1, 2012 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

Several things I would like to bring to your attention this month.  November is National Animal Shelter appreciation month.  We have a  new shelter in Virginia Beach and the management and staff do an excellent job.  It is a great place to volunteer.

November is also, adopt a Senior Pet Month.  It is much harder to find homes for Senior pets, yet they make the greatest pets ever.  If you are thinking about adopting a new family member, please consider a senior pet.

As the weather turns colder there are a few safety reminders I would like to share.  We will be using our fireplaces more, be sure that you have a screen , so tails and feet don’t catch on fire.

Leave your dogs coats longer in the winter it gives them extra insulation it helps to keep them warmer.  Check paws after walks and outside adventures, to make sure there is no ice or chemicals stuck to their paws.  If you must use salt on your sidewalks, use Safe-Paws or kitty litter or sand.

Remember dogs and cats do better without Thanksgiving dinner.

If you feel you must give them something special for Thanksgiving perhaps a special treat. Not Turkey or human food.

It is time to make those Pet Sitting Reservations for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  We book up quickly and will fill our schedule on a first come first serve basis.  Please contact us at 301-7384 or email as soon as you know your dates.

Looking forward to being able to help you with your plans.

Joan, Jill and Ashley
