DUMP PASSES WANTED!
The Thrift Shop operation includes "dumping fees".  Unfortunately, we receive donations which are not in good enough shape to sell at the Thrift Shop.  Therefore, we are frequently taking these items to the Yuba Sutter Recology (dump).  If you have any "Free Dump Passes" that you don't use, we would be happy to have them.  For more information, please call 530-755-2025.  When donating to the Thrift Shop please only bring items which are new or very gently used.  No rust, tears, odors, (cigarette smoke), broken, missing parts, old computer monitors, old Tv's, printers with no software, broken furniture, ripped furniture, stained clothing, very worn shoes, molded items (books specifically).  We appreciate each and every donation, but we simply cannot afford to operate with the increasing cost of dumping fees.  We need your donations and welcome them, just be aware of items we cannot sell, as listed above.  Thank You again for all of your support for the animals.

COLD WEATHER TIPS FOR YOUR PET

  • Don't let your pets off the leash when you are in an area with heavy snow.  Pets can lose the ability to scent the snow and can easily become lost.
  • If you own a short-haired dog, consider getting a coat or sweater to keep your dog warm.
  • Never leave your dog alone in the car; the temperatures can decrease to a deadly level.
  • If your dog is sensitive to the cold, due to age or illness, limit their time outdoors, allowing just enough for relieving themselves.
  • Puppies are very sensitive to the cold and may be difficult to housebreak.  Try alternative training methods, such as puppy pads during the winter.
  • Make sure your pet has a warm place to sleep, away from cold drafts. 
  • Antifreeze is a lethal poison to dogs and cats, so be sure to keep any leaks from your vehicle cleaned up. 

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.
