Did you know.... You should never leave your pet alone in a vehicle. Even with the windows open, a parked automobile can quickly become a furnace. Parking in the shade offers little protection, as the sun shifts during the day. Always carry a gallon thermos filled with cold, fresh water when traveling with your pet. When temperatures are high, don't let your pet stand on hot asphalt. His or her body can heat up quickly, and sensitive paw pads can burn.
Provide plenty of fresh water and plenty of shade for animals kept outdoors; a properly constructed doghouse serves best. When walking your dog, steer clear of areas that you believe may have been sprayed with insecticides or other chemicals. Do not apply sunscreen or insect repellant products to your pet that is not labeled specifically for use on animals. Ingestion of sunscreen products can result in drooling, diarrhea, excessive thirst and lethargy.
The misuse of insect repellent that contains DEET can lead to neurological problems. Stay alert for signs of overheating in pets, which include excessive panting and drooling and mild weakness, along with an elevated body temperature. Announcements: In the Beginning - Clarence and Scar: Clarence and Scar were the first 2 animals to enter our shelter. Clarence Clarence came to our shelter as a senior dog, seeming only to want a peaceful place to sleep and the chance to go outside every day.
Instead of putting Clarence up for adoption, we decided he was happiest at the shelter, being loved by the staff and walked each day by the volunteers. Clarence spent his final 3 years living with us. We loved him very much. He passed away sleeping on his special bed that eased his arthritis. His time with us is one of the best examples we can give of the care and compassion given to all animals entering the shelter.
Scar Scar was brought to the shelter bleeding from a wound that ran almost completely around his neck…the result of being used as bait for dog fighting. We gave him the medical attention he needed, but more importantly, he became the “Shelter” cat…roaming freely and visiting everyone who entered the shelter. Eventually, Scar’s winning personality won out and he was adopted into his forever home.
