Poisonous Plants for cats

Cats and kittens love to chew on grass and other plants! Unfortunately some of these are dangerous! Some only cause mild symptoms, diarrhea, vomiting, others can cause organ failure and even death.

Pet owners need to be aware and take the steps to protecting their cats from these plants. If you have plants in the house you should know the name of them. Some plants have different common names depending on the area of the country in which you live. Please make sure you know what you have!
If you think your pet has chewed or eaten one of these plants, please contact the poison control center for advice.
The ASPCA National Animal Control Center hot line number is:

About 150 people in Arizona are bitten every year. 
Some of Arizona’s rattlesnakes can also be lethal. 

Scottsdale is notorious for having snakebites and s…

National Adopt a dog month  And National Adopt a Shelter dog month

Are you thinking about adopting a dog? Has the thought crossed your mind in the past few months? If so, that's great! This is the perfect month for you to get down to business and do just that!

You might be looking simply for a companion, maybe a hiking pal, a friend for your grandparents or parents, how about an agility hopeful, or just a happy, warm face to welcome you home each day? Then this might just be the perfect timing!

Across the valley there are numerous places that you can choose from to adopt a dog. Many Shelters are full and have weekend discounts so they can open up space for new dogs. Unfortunately some will be placed on the E-List almost immediately due to its breed, temperament or health.

A dog that is on the "E-List" (to be euthanized) is commonly a dog that might have growled when captured or put into a kennel, but it doesn't necessarily mean they are aggressive.

They were SCARED.
