A BIG THANK YOU to our friends at Paint Branch High Pet Advocate Club. The PAC club held a donation drive in addition to 2 Bake Sales to benefit the animals! Overall they raised $550 and 6 huge bags of goodies. Young adults like this not only help the animals but help us feel very positive about the future.
If It Helps Just One....
A Volunteer reports a friend accidentally left her pantry door open. When she returned home, she found her dog had gotten its head stuck in a cereal box and suffocated. While this may seem very unlikely, it’s not the first time we’ve heard of it! Several years ago, a dog we know died in a potato chip bag. Similarly, cats have been reported to suffer the same fate getting stuck in cat food cans. We’ve probably all wondered why “this bag is not a toy” even needs to be said. But food containers don’t usually post a warning, and for our four-legged friends, anything with food or food residue is especially tempting. So be safe and keep food and trash out of your pet’s reach.
In our position, we often get alerts or stories that people want us to share. In an effort to bring them to you in an organized fashion, we’ll post them under this title. Our goal is not to be depressing or alarmist, but to present things you may never have thought of but should know. If it helps just one, it will be worth it.
