Halloween Safety Tips

Here are a few friendly reminders for our beloved pets on Halloween night.

Constant doorbell ringing can be frightening or plain stressful to your pet, so consider putting them away in a room for the trick or treating hours. Don't forget water, food and a chew toy to keep them busy - and check on them consistently throughout the night!

With lots of kids of all ages out and about in the neighborhood, sometimes a fence or gate gets left open. Check the yard after trick or treating hours is over for open gates or debris.

Candy is very toxic to our pets so be careful of what you have in the home and what might have spilled on the sidewalk.

Lastly, for our cat owners, it is better to keep your kitty cat indoors for Halloween night.

Have a spooktacular and safe Halloween!

As Adopt a Shelter Dog Month comes to a end, we wanted to highlight other programs that you can donate to help shelters. The Dogist has created a program called Give a Dog a Bone, which aims to get more dogs out of shelters and also give those dogs a better life while they're in the shelter.
