Senior Cats Need Loving Too. Do You Have Room in Your Heart?
Amy from the Humane Society of West Michigan talked today on Wet Nose Wednesday about our Pet of the Week, Pebbles. She is a love and needs some love!
Pebbles is a 15-year-old, female cat: This senior lady is as sweet as can be and the definition of a companion kitty. She loves to lounge around next to you, on your lap, or cuddled up under blankets. In her foster home, she loves to nap on her foster dad's chest and purr the day (and night) away. When she isn't being held or pet you can find her keeping an eye on the wildlife outside the window or gobbling up anything Tuna flavored. If you're looking for a low-maintenance, quiet, affectionate kitty to keep you company, Pebbles is most definitely the girl for you. Visit hswestmi.org to learn more or come and visit us!
Empty the Shelters:
In partnership with BISSELL Pet Foundation and MetLife Pet Insurance, HSWM is beyond excited to be participating in a summer Empty the Shelters. Now through July 15th, all adult dogs are $50 to adopt and all adult cats are $20! We are so grateful to have already had so many animals go home during this Empty the Shelters and hope to have so many more find loving homes. Be sure to come out and meet some of the amazing animals we have in our care and maybe even take one home!
Tito’s, Tots, and Tails:
Blue Dog Tavern in collaboration with Tito’s Handmade Vodka presents Tito’s, Tots & Tails! Join us for a night of fun with puppies, signature drinks, great food, and lots of fun! This event is July 20th from 4:00-7:00p at the amazing Blue Dog Tavern! A portion of all sales will go directly toward the animals in our care!
Hot weather Safety Tips:
As we are in the midst of a hot summer, let’s talk about some tips for keeping pets safe in hot weather:
• Pets can get dehydrated quickly, so give them plenty of fresh, clean water.
• Never leave your animals alone in a parked vehicle.
• Do not leave pets unsupervised around a pool—not all dogs are good swimmers.
• When the temperature is very high, don’t let your dog linger on hot asphalt. Being so close to the ground, your pooch’s body can heat up quickly, and sensitive paw pads can burn. Keep walks during these times to a minimum.
