National "Be Kind To Animals" Week 2015


 What will you do this week to help be kind to an animal?

Just yesterday I received a phone call from a young lady who had intervened an attack on a small bird from neighborhood cats. There were many of them, attacking this small, helpless, brown bird. Just your average bird you see every day flying in the sky.
The young lady was frantic on the phone and didn't know what to do with this poor little bird. She asked me for help and asked me questions as to what she could do to help him.
I offered her some tips, asked her if she thought she could in the very least get the little bird into a small carrier and out of the yard where it would be in danger. She did have a pet carrier and was able to get the bird into it after gently picking him up from under a bush. She placed a light cloth cover over the carrier and set it in a quite room so the bird could de-stress from what just happened. Certainly it had to have been in shock.

Throughout the day this young lady texted me repeatedly, worried about the small bird. She was confused as to what to do next. For her to be so worried and so upset about this small, average, little bird, made me even more proud of her. She was definitely being kind to an animal and was worried about the little bird all day. She wanted to do what was best for him and tried all day to contact bird rescues.
This is a perfect example of how to be kind to an animal. It doesn't matter the species, they are all living, breathing creatures. This young lady did not turn her back on the small bird which she easily could have. It turns out that she did find a rescue to take the bird to help it recover and release it once better.
Hats off to Elizabeth! I am so proud you helped this little bird! What a perfect start to "Be Kind To Animals" week!

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…

National Adopt a dog month

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.
