A Fearless Fourth for Fido

Jul02

 

For most Americans, the Fourth of July holiday is a time for fun, family and fireworks. But the holiday can be a nightmare for our four-legged friends. As you make your plans to celebrate Independence Day, please keep your pets in mind and follow these tips to ensure your cat or dog's safety this Fourth of July.

Fourth of July Pet Safety1. Fireworks may be fun for us, but the loud noises are stressful and scary for pets. In fact, more pets run away on July 4 than any other day of the year. Keep your dog or cat securely inside the home and provide them with a quiet, comfortable place to rest. If your pet is especially scared of loud noises, you can turn on "white noise" sources such as the radio, the TV or a fan.

2. If you're expecting guests, set aside a room just for your animal with food, water and a bed. Crowds can overwhelm your pet, and giving them a quiet space to retreat to will go a long way in helping them feel safe and relaxed.

3. If you're heading out to a community fireworks display, please resist the urge to bring your pup along to the festivities. Large crowds and loud noises can be scary and overwhelming.

4. Keep dangerous items, such as alcoholic beverages, fire crackers, citronella candles or insect coils, and lighter fluid out of your pet's reach.

5. In the event that your animal does escape the house, make sure that they are wearing a collar with identification tags, and that all contact information is up-to-date. Also ensure that your pet's microchip information is current. 

For more tips on avoiding holiday hazards, visit PAWS.org

Happy Fourth of July from all of us at PAWS!

Help Us Save 200 Lives in July!

Jun28

 

Are you up to the challenge? This July, help us save the lives of 200 shelter animals by joining the 2013 PAWS Foster Challenge! Our goal is to save the lives of 200 cats, dogs, puppies and kittens through our foster care placement program.

Help Save 200 Lives! 2013 PAWS Foster ChallengeThe need for foster homes is constantly growing, especially for medium to large sized dogs.
Fostering is flexible enough for most lifestyles and PAWS will custom-match the animals to each foster home.

By offering your time, energy and home to an animal in need, you prepare the animal for adoption into a permanent home as well as help prevent overcrowding in our shelter.

Our greatest foster needs are:

  • Adult Dogs
  • Cats 
  • Momma cats with litters
  • Orphaned kitten and puppies

In July, a special “one-stop” introduction to the PAWS Volunteer Program and a full foster training will be offered every Sunday from 10am – 1pm.

Register now for one of these orientations and learn what it takes and choose how you want to get involved! Drop-ins welcome.

Sign up today and help us save 200 lives!
