Protecting your Pet this Winter

  • Check your sidewalk for de-icer: salt and de-icer can irritate your pet’s paws
  • Wash your dog’s paws after walks: a warm water rinse will wash off salt and chemicals
  • Dog boots: Ultimate protection from the elements and help your dog retain body heat
  • Make sure your pet has a collar and a microchip with updated contact information.  A blanket of snow can make it difficult for pets to fund their way by scent.  Consider a GPS tracker on your pet’s collar so you can locate him/her with your smartphone.
  • Beware of antifreeze, coolant and other poisonous chemical spills that animals may ingest.
  • Use plastic bowls outside.  Your pet’s tongue can stick and freeze to metal.
  • Always bang on your vehicle’s hood to scare away any animals that may have been attracted to a warm engine before starting your vehicle.

Shelter Stars

O'Malley

O’Malley: Let me start by telling you that I been told I’m quite the character. Recently I went nuts over dinner time & kept hopping up and down. I’m a little embarrassed to know that the Board members saw this. I’m sure I looked like a cat that’s never been fed. I’m really a special guy with so much love to give my family. I need to tell you a quick secret though, I’m not the type of guy that wants to be outside with all the bugs – Yuck! I’m truly an inside dude. And because I’m such a “lover”, I really need a home that’s dedicated just to me vs having other animals in the home to steal my thunder. I’m sure you can appreciate that and actually feel honored that I want you to myself. I’d like to take some time to show you and tell you how I can be your one & only. Let’s have our meet & greet and talk about you being my fur-ever home.

Rocket: Let me start this conversation by debunking the thought that my name is telling of my behavior. Even though you would think at 4yrs old I should be spunky & fast like a rocket (hehehe), I’m actually just a sweet mellow dude. When I arrived at the shelter with my good friend Orion, we had a bet on who would land their new home first. I guess he won, and now’s my chance to shine. They tell me I’m polydactal, which I guess mean’s there’s just more of me to love. I have to say, I’m that kind of guy with a “big” personality and like a few of the other shelter stars, I really want my new home to include either older children (or none). I’m also not a fan of dogs, but after watching the movie Cats & Dogs, can you blame me? If you have some time I’d like to see if we are a good match in making your home my fur-ever. Are you game?
