Black Cats
Monday, August 11, 2014
It’s a fact.  In shelters and rescue organizations across the country, black cats spend more time awaiting adoption than cats of any other color or color combination. We don’t doubt some potential adopters shy away from ...

Glue Traps
Monday, August 04, 2014
Our neighbors told us about their new intruders: mice.  They were set to buy sticky glue traps since they are the “humane” ones, they said.  They figured they would trap the mice, then gently pull them off the glue trap and release them outside....

Myth Busters
Monday, July 28, 2014
It’s time for one of my bi-annual myth-busters columns, starting with this classic: pit bulls have locking laws.  Not so, it’s physiologically impossible!  Pits have stronger jaws than most breeds, ...

July 4th
Monday, June 23, 2014
Fourth of July is around the corner. While it’s a great night of celebration for us humans, it can be a scary night for dogs.  Our four-legged friends left alone in yards get spooked by the fireworks and do whatever they can to escape. They can injure themselves in the process, or worse, become lost.  ...

Adoption Readiness
Monday, June 16, 2014
