Cold Weather Field Trips for Pets

If your dog is feeling cooped up this winter, try taking him or her on outings with you during the week. Even a short trip to a dog friendly pet store or coffee shop can make their week more eventful. For dogs and cats, consider having a pet sitter drop by to exercise your pooch or play with your cat.

New Year’s Resolution: Pet Exercise!

Exercise is the most common New Year’s resolution for humans and there is no reason why it can’t be for your pet too!

Indoor games can keep your pet active while giving them some quality one on one time. For dogs, try some new toys like a rope to play tug with. Fetch is also a great game to play indoors with small stuffed animals. To increase the pet’s activity level try tossing the toy up stairs (make sure the stairs have carpeting or a runner to prevent slipping).

If your dog likes to chase, try attaching a stuffed animal to the end of a rope. Even though going outside is difficult this time of year, indoor open areas work well too.

For cats try to mix up their toys and introduce some feathery or fur-like toys on “fishing poles” that will encourage stalking, leaping and pouncing- especially right before mealtime when your cat is hungry. Interactive toys are enjoyed by both dogs and cats especially ones that dispense treats!

Help Sarah Lee Find a Home

This beautiful kitty was found here in the parking lot one sunny day! She is a very young and feisty girl but loves to be amongst company. We have found that she is not bothered by dogs and is very “playful” with other cats. She is very independent but loves a good pat on the head or scratch behind the ear every now and then!
We call her “Sarah Lee”. She is already spayed, up to date on all her vaccines and Felv/FIV negative
