When you Spay or Neuter your Pets, you Save Lives !

SAVE THE LIVES OF THOUSANDS, BY SIMPLY SPAYING AND NEUTERING YOUR PETS.

You, may very well be a very Responsible Pet Owner; but, if your pet accidentally gets outdoors and is gone for fifteen minutes, your pet may have already produced an unwanted litter of homeless pets left on the Streets, vulnerable to the cruelties of this World.



Spaying and Neutering is the best way to reduce the numbers of animals entering our shelters; and there are great benefits for you and your pet.

The number One Breed of dog to be killed in a Shelter for being homeless is the Pit Bull, the Second Breed of dog to be killed in a Shelter for being homeless is the Chihuahua. Right now in parts of California, such as San Francisco, there are THOUSANDS of Chihuahua's stray on the Streets, the Pounds and Rescues are filled to their Brims and cannot house any more...If these dogs are not spayed and neutered they are producing thousands of more homeless pets.
Other States have similar problems with stray Chihuahua's, like Arizona and New Mexico.


You’ll Never Believe How Many Stray Chihuahuas Are Running Around in the San Francisco Area

    Do not let unfixed male cats roam around outside, you are contributing to the thousands of feral cats filling the Streets of every City. Do not let male or female domestic cats outdoors period. It is a well known fact that domestic cats left outdoors are causing small wild critters and song birds to be going extinct. If you let your Cats roam around outdoors you are leaving them vulnerable and potential victims to crimes against animals. Keep you cats in the house, please. Save our small wildlife from extinction, that is forever and when it is man-made, it is unacceptable.   http://www.wildlifeextra.com/go/news/feral-cat-US.html#cr

It is the 13 th Anniversary of the tragic 911 event, here is a Rememberance Tribute.

IN LOVING MEMORY OF THOSE LIVES WHO WERE LOST IN THE TRAGEDY OF 911.
 
 
 
 
 
The following video from Budweiser is the most BEAUTIFUL Tribute I have ever seen! 



Budweiser 911 Tribute - Respect

 The Commercial Budweiser produced after 9/11. They aired it only once -- so as not to make a profit from the tragedy. This was aired during Super Bowl XXXVI in February 2002.

 



 The World Trade Center video is a moving video! A compiled history of the Twin Towers.

Do try and watch it in it's entirety. It is well worth it.

HALLOWEEN CAUTIONS FOR PETS!

HALLOWEEN CAUTIONS FOR PETS!

Halloween is fun for humans but can be a very stressful time for all pets so please keep this in mind. Dressing your pet up is fun but do not bring your pet on the Halloween festivities.

This holiday is the time when most pets end up in shelters or animal control facilities for being a stray lost pet. Pets run from noises and hectic situations. Pets get lost -- especially on Halloween! Everything is frightening for them. Costumed humans can be especially scary for your pets.

Candy and other foods eaten during Halloween can be poisonous to animals. Chocolate, candy, raisins, d├ęcor and candy wrappers. The Vets have an increase in calls during the surrounding weekends of Halloween. Be especially careful with pets and candles as well. (Burns and fire)!

24 hours, 7 days a week Animal Poison Control Center:
 1-800-213-6680

Hope you all have a very safe and nice Halloween.

TRICK OR TREAT! For pets it is the trick not the treat.

 
 

Sparky as Count Dracula!

Being A Responsible Pet Owner


It takes a lot of patience, humor, and compassion to raise a well adjusted pet.  It is a commitment. 

 
  • Always spay and nueter your pets. There are too many pets that are homeless and looking for new homes. You do not want to add to the overpopulation by breeding indiscriminatly.
  • Regular Vet care, grooming care, and exercise which is determined by the breed of dog's characteristics.
  • City dwellers need a license for pets, renewed yearly, or some Cities have lifetime licenses for microchipped pets ( considerable lower costs ).
  • Training classes help you to bond with the pet and makes for good household behavior.
  • Remember dogs learn by repetition and consistency.  You need lots of patience and this is very true with rescued or adopted pets.
  • Watch your pets personality so you can determine what is NOT normal.... sometimes very abrupt behavior changes could mean there is a physical problem. Ask your Vet if continuos behavior changes persist, it may just be an ailment they cannot tell you about.
  •  
  • Pets do experience fright, anxiety and pain.
  • Animals do have senitive hearing and it is more amplified than ours ( fireworks, thunder, lighting, rain ) can make a pet anxious. (the thundershirt may help you, see older post on this blog.
  • Dogs are pack animals and humans are part of their pack. Do not leave your pet out of your family functions. The dog or other pets will bond with the pack much easier and learns respectable behaviors in an active family role through trial and error and positive training techniques.....a much healthier relationship with their families is the worthwhile end result.
  • Enjoy and have fun with your pets it is so good to build the bond.
  • Do buy from repitable breeders or better yet adopt a pet from your local humane society or other shelters in your area....you may find the organizations in your area on the Petfinder site, devoted to finding homeless pets good homes. www.petfinder.com I found my adopted poodle elliot on petfinder, he was at a humane society and he is a joy to add to our family.
I hope you found some useful information on this blog and some great information is found on my other postings, I hope you check them out.....THANKS.
