National Adopt a Shelter dog month!



Are you thinking about adopting a dog? What better month than October?

If you are looking for a companion, a hiking pal, a friend for grandparents or parents, an agility hopeful, or just a happy, warm face to welcome you home each day then this might just be the perfect timing! 


Across our valley there are numerous places that you can choose from to adopt a dog. Many No-Kill Shelters are full and have weekend discounts so they can open up space for new dogs. But what about those dogs that end up in our High-Kill Shelters? Maybe this is a good month to dedicate our adoptions to one of the shelters which pets don’t have good chances in making it out. We all know what they are facing after just a few short days, so let’s make this month one that we dedicate to getting down to the “Kill Shelters” and finding a new friend!


We're not saying that you should avoid other shelters where animals do have good chances at finding homes and do not face euthanasia, we're simply offering the idea to dedicate this month to see if we can make a difference in some of the dogs lives that weren’t so lucky to end up in a no-kill shelter.


Pinal Animal Control and Maricopa Rabies Animal Control are two “High-Kill” Shelters where many dogs only have 3-7 days to get adopted. 


If you are looking for a new pet please consider these two Control Facilities. You will never forget the smile on the dogs face as he walks out with you and gets in the car to ride home to his new family. You will find a forever family member and one that will likely never forget that you and your family came that delightful day to make a difference in his life. 

 

Pinal Animal Control: 520-509-3555. 1150 S Eleven Mile Corner Rd, 
Casa Grande, AZ 85194




Maricopa Rabies Animal Control:   602-506-PETS(7387)2630 W. Rio Salado




·        The West Valley facility is located in Phoenix at 2500 S. 27th Avenue (27th Avenue and Lower Buckeye). 




 Thanks pet friends!

NATIONAL "ADOPT A SHELTER DOG" MONTH

SNAKES IN ARIZONA

Article written by Kim MacCrone-CVT 






Okay, we all live in Arizona because the weather is almost perfect, the sun is almost always shining, the golf courses are luscious, there are multiple and beautiful wide open spaces and endless hiking trails! 

Surprisingly enough these are also places where some “not so delightful” inhabitants hang out in our state! You've heard the news this past week...... Snakes bites are on the rise!! Again! 
Here are a few simple tips to help keep you safe.



If you hike: 
 • Tap ahead of you with a walking stick before entering an area where you can't see your feet. Snakes will try to avoid you if given enough warning. • When hiking in an area known to have snakes, wear long pants and boots if possible
 • Consider purchasing a snake kit Avoid rock piles or tall green grass/bushes where snakes like to rest. 

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…

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.
