Donnie is our Pet of the Week on Wet Nose Wednesday
We talked with Emily from the Humane Society today about Donnie
Donnie is a 3 month old black lab mix puppy who will be available for adoption soon! He is sweet as can be and would a wonderful addition to your family.
The American Kennel Club says: The sweet-faced, lovable Labrador Retriever is America’s most popular dog breed. Labs are friendly, outgoing, and high-spirited companions who have more than enough affection to go around for a family looking for a medium-to-large dog.
Halloween is tomorrow with lots of Trick or Treating happening. That could mean a rough time for your pet. So Emily suggested:
Halloween Safety for Pets:
Keep your pets safe this Howl-o-ween!
Halloween may be your favorite holiday, but many pets don't like this spooky season! Here are a few tips to keep your pets safe and happy this Halloween:
- Not all pets enjoy wearing costumes. For those that do, be sure that costumes do not obstruct vision, breathing, or make walking difficult.
- Leave pets safely at home. Even the most confident, well-mannered pets may become stressed in the presence of trick or treaters and their costumes.
- Keep all candy and treats out of reach! Chocolate, artificial sweeteners, wrappers and more can be deadly to our pets. If you believe your pet has ingested anything they shouldn't have, contact the Emergency Veterinary Hospital in your area. You may also call the ASPCA Poison Control Center for help at (888) 426-4435
Emily doesn't want you the forget:
