10 Tips for Holiday Pet Safety

10 Tips for Holiday Pet Safety

As the holidays are getting closer, it’s important to set yourself up for success while celebrating with your pets. To help avoid costly or frightening accidents, try these ten tips:

1. Be careful your pets don’t get ahold of any snacks outside of their regular diet. Make sure they don’t have access to dangerous food like sweets, turkey, yeast dough, and other table scraps including onions, grapes, and fatty foods.
2. Ornaments, tinsel and other festive tree decorations can be dangerous for pets if ingested. Be sure to keep ornaments and decorations out of reach of all your pets.

Our hearts are full this holiday season knowing that over 800 families have new furry family members, and over 1200 animals were saved because of our life saving volunteers, donors, adopters and fosters just like you.

DPA’s Pawesome Person: November Foster Spotlight

DPA’s Pawesome Person: November Foster Spotlight

Dani does not shy away from fostering any type of dog – she has fostered Chihuahuas to Great Danes and everything in between. Despite having a full house of dogs and cats of her own, Dani treats her foster dogs as if they were there to stay. She has a knack for loving the ones with a long list of medical issues and seniors (aka the most looked over in the shelter). Her fosters came to her with their fare share of problems ranging from extreme allergies to severe malnutrition, injuries that require surgery to heartworm. Her patience is a virtue and her passion for rescue is inspiring. We are so lucky to have Dani on our team and know that each dog that goes through her home is on the road to the best life possible.

No doubt this pup has a resilient nature.
