Winter Tips For Your Pet

You're prepared for Winter, is your Pet?  Pets can suffer from hypothermia and arthritis, just like humans.  Here are a few tips to help your pet get through Winter.

  • Antifreeze is highly toxic to your pet!  Pets are attracted to it, because it is sweet.  Keep your pet AWAY from the antifreeze container and check your driveway for any signs of leakage from your vehicle.  If your pet does ingest antifreeze, CALL YOUR VET IMMEDIATELY!
  • Bathe less.  Bathing your pet too frequently in the Winter, can cause dry, flaky itchy skin.  Don't bathe as often
  • Don't leave your pets outside.  They can suffer from hypothermia and even death.  If it is too cold for you, it is too cold for your pet.
  • Provide a warm, draft-free area for your pet, with a cozy dog bed and or blanket to sleep on. 
  • NEVER leave your dog in the car during cold weather.  It is like a refrigerator, trapping the cold air inside the car and can even lead to death for your furry friend. 
  • Visit your Veterinarian for a "Winter Health Check' for your pet.  Especially older dogs, who may develop arthritis.  Talk to your Veterinarian about recommended feeding during the Winter months.  
CARING FOR YOU SENIOR DOG
It is difficult to come to terms with the fact that your pet is aging.  It is also important to recognize the signs of aging and to ensure your dogs quality of life doesn't change.  Here are some helpful tips for you and your senior pet. 
  1. Proper nutrition is essential for your pet's health.  Talk to your veterinarian about the special diet needs that you're pet may require.
  2. Your senior pet still needs exercise for their mental and physical health.  Just be sure not to overdo, short less strenuous walks are good.
  3. Keep your dog at a healthy weight.  Ask your Veterinarian to recommend the proper amount of food for your senior pet's weight maintenance.
  4. Don't ignore your senior pet's dental care.  Tarter can build up, causing gingivitis, which can allow bacteria into the blood stream.  You can brush your pet's teeth at home and provide gum care, but talk to your Veterinarian regarding your pet's dental health during your next visit.

Why Do We Have Adoption Fees?


  • Spaying and neutering
  • Vaccinations, including Distemper, Kennel Cough, Parvo, and Rabies and De-wormer.
  • Food and Shelter.   This includes providing shelter, blankets, dog houses, food, with some dogs requiring special food for special diets. Also, we provide toys and treats.
  • Flea control, grooming supplies, and bathing.
  • Medical Care and Medications, which can be quite costly to the Rescue.  We frequently use eye medications, ear medications, skin medications, intestinal medications and also we provide x-rays when needed and any emergency or any other needed medical attention when  necessary.

A common question among adopters is why do we have adoption fees?  Shouldn't the dogs be free or at least discounted because they are rescue dogs?  When you adopt a dog from our Shelter, your fees are helping with the continious costs involved in the care of the dog.  These costs typically include, but are not limited to:
The cost to provide care for just one dog can be anywhere between $150.00-$500.00, and depending upon the particular situation, possibly more. This of course does not include costs involved in maintaining the rescue, maintenance and other day to day operational costs.  Please remember, we do not receive Federal or State Funding.  The adoption fees we charge allow us to to continue to care for these animals.
