Anna Grace is our Pet of the Week on Wet Nose Wednesday
Anna Grace, from the Humane Society of West Michigan, came to visit.
This girl is a staff and volunteer favorite. She has been with us for over a year on and off. She has been returned for multiple different reasons, one was because she was adopted by an elderly woman who had issues with her hips so she was unable to walk her, another was because the adopters significant other did not approve of the adoption. None have been Anna Grace's fault. She should be an only pet, and has urinary incontinence which appears to be under control now (she did have to wear diapers which she didn't mind at all)! She also is on a special diet and can only have special treats and food.

An annual event to remind the community to spay neuter pets. Why? It battles pet overpopulation. Animals that are spay/neutered can live a longer, healthier life. Spay neutering also reduces the risk of cancer and urinary tract infection. Spay Neutering also offers a calmer demeanor for some animals.
Rabbits - spay neuter when sexually mature - 4 to 6 months. Puppies and kittens at 8 weeks. Exotics, too. Work closely with your veterinarian to protect your beloved companion.
