Halloween Safety Tips for Your Pets

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.
  • With lots of kids of all ages out and about in the neighborhood sometimes a fence or gate gets left open or candy gets dropped along the way. Check the yard after trick or treating hours are 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 cat indoors for Halloween night to lessen the chances that it will run away or get injured.
Have a spooktacular and safe Halloween!

Share Your Pet Adoption Stories

With the month of October being adopt a shelter dog month, we want to hear from you! Share your journey of adopting your pet in the comments of this post. If you have advice for anyone thinking about adopting, please share that too. We would also love to hear how you have helped a shelter or if you have volunteered and what that experience was like.
