10 Tips for a Happy (and safe!) Halloween for Your Pets

10 Tips for a Happy (and safe!) Halloween for Your Pets

They’re covered in hair, have anywhere from two to four legs usually, can be found under your bed, in lakes, or sometimes your closets. They aren’t monsters, they’re your dogs and cats! This may be the spookiest time of year for us and tons of fun, but remember this time of year can be downright scary for your pets. Here are our tips and tricks, sorry we’re out of treats, to keeping you, your pets, and your visitors safe this haunting season.

DPA’s Pawesome Person: October Foster Spotlight

Nicole has been an amazing volunteer and foster with DPA. She decided to get more involved on the backend after fostering with us for a while. She serves as a foster representative and foster application vetter and excels in both roles. Due to her background, she is able to provide honest, considerate and compassionate advice to those interested in fostering, or currently in the process of fostering. No problem is too big and she will work tirelessly to find the answer. The foster team is so lucky to have her on board!

Myriam Hunter has been one of our most stellar and responsible volunteers for the PASS program since its inception. We count on her to not only be a wealth of knowledge and resources for citizens at our PASS table but also helping to train other volunteers on the program. Her dedication for PASS is a shining example for all our volunteers. PASS would not be the same without Myriam and it’s because of her hard work and commitment, many animals have been able to stay in their homes and out of the shelter.

What makes Jim so awesome is that he doesn’t shy away from any sort of foster case and he will take on a foster for as long as it takes. Jim is all about commitment until his fosters are adopted and tends to go for the adult bully breeds or other looked over animals. Jim’s fosters get to enjoy all the pleasures a dog could ask for including movie nights and day trips to the beach! We are so lucky to have him as a foster for us!

Caitlin joined our Adoptions Team when we were beginning our cat adoption program. She became an essential part of building the cat adoption side of that team and worked closely with our Adoption Director, TNR Director, and Foster/Medical Director in order to put our current policies and procedures in place to have the best outcome for our cats and kittens. Caitlin has a passion and the customer service skills needed to work closely with adopters and fosters to achieve the best match making possible in pairing adopters with their purrfect furever feline. Caitlin assisted in pioneering unknown territory for DPA and I know for a fact without her involvement this side of our program would have struggled to grow the way it has been able to over the past year. Thanks to Caitlin’s hard work and dedication we were able to assist our TNR program in rehoming cats and kittens that were adoptable and not eligible for release, while also enabling our cat program to take off after years of trying. Caitlin is part of the reason we were finally able to become Dallas PETS Alive!
