Have A Pet-Happy Halloween

Have A Pet-Happy Halloween

All night long, groups of noisy kids carrying flashlights and bags appear on your doorstep dressed in strange clothing, ring the doorbell, giggle, yell in unison and run away with candy. The front door stays open all night, the outdoor light is on when it shouldn’t be, strange orange globes sit on the front steps and people in the household look and act strangely. Sound weird? This might be the way your pet is experiencing Halloween. Halloween can be a lot of fun for you and your pet. The presence of our pets enriches our holiday traditions and Halloween is no exception, but with all the festivities and fun, there can be some stress and danger for our four-footed friends. In order to keep your cat or dog happy this Halloween, remember these important safety tips: Keep your pet inside. In order to avoid trouble, the best place for your dog or cat is safely contained in your home. Black cats are at especially high risk for abuse at this time of year, so these kitties should definitely stay safely inside. Dogs may be safer in a crate. If your house is welcoming trick-or-treaters, pets can become startled and anxious when kids approach the house and try to bolt out the door. Make sure your pet’s microchip is updated with your recent information and your pet wears a collar with your contact information in case it gets out. Costumes for pets should be safe. Whether your pet is doing its best Darth Vader impression or is looking scrumptiously cute in its hotdog costume, it should allow your pet to move, breathe, eat and drink easily, bark...
North Texas Giving Day: Be Inspired to Impact Change

North Texas Giving Day: Be Inspired to Impact Change

“Take a good look around you. Take a good look you’re bound to see. That you and me were meant to be for each other…..Martha my dear, you have always been my inspiration.” – Sir Paul McCartney, “Martha My Dear” I bet you didn’t know that Paul McCartney was inspired by a four-legged friend. Most people think his song “Martha My Dear” was about a girl, but he wrote the song about his beautiful sheepdog, Martha. The love she gave inspired him to write a song just for her. All animal lovers can relate to Paul’s love for Martha, that love that can inspire us to do anything…write a song, go out in public or just love a little deeper like our pets love us. There is a spirit of inspiration around Dallas Pets Alive! all the time. I get to witness, with awe, abandoned animals overcome the impossible and the countless hours and dedication our volunteers give to DPA. It’s their passion and commitment that inspires me to give more every day – to save more lives. With tens of thousands of pets arriving annually, Dallas Animal Services relies on Dallas Pets Alive! and others to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome as many pets as we can. Without inspiration, we could not have accomplished so much in only 4 short years. How does Dallas Pets Alive! inspire change? Dallas Pets Alive is participating in North Texas Giving Day because we’ve witnessed the spirit of giving in our city, and we know the power that spirit has on helping the homeless pets of Dallas. We ask that you honor a pet...
