EDUCATE

Kindness to Animals

Animals are an important part of our lives. Our pets teach us what it is to be unconditionally loved, and how to love something that we can never communicate with. They teach us that small acts of kindness can change the life of a living thing. 

Spaying and Neutering

The decision to spay or neuter your pet is an important one for pet owners. It can be the single best decision you make for their long-term welfare. In the U.S., there are an estimated 6-8 million homeless animals entering animal shelters every year. Barely half of these animals are adopted. Tragically, the rest are euthanized. These are healthy, sweet pets who would have made great companions. Many people are surprised to learn that nationwide, more than 2.7 million healthy, adoptable cats and dogs are euthanized in shelters annually. Spay/neuter is the only permanent, 100 percent effective method of birth control for dogs and cats.

Proper Care

Having a dog is a big commitment, starting with proper care.  All dogs need a well-balanced diet, daily exercise, proper grooming, housing, vaccinations, flea and tick medication and lots and lots of love.  

Training 

Most rescue dogs come from shelters and they didn't end up in shelters because they were given a lot of training. That alone is probably the number one reason dogs end up in shelters, even the purebred dogs. It doesn't mean they are bad dogs but just no one has ever shown them what is acceptable and expected.  

Body Language

Because dogs don't speak our language, the only way to truly comprehend and communicate with them is for us to understand and appreciate what they are telling us through their body and vocal language. Often, gestures or actions that we assume mean one thing are actually the dog telling us the exact opposite, and determining what that wagging tail or exposed tummy really means can sometimes be the difference between a belly rub and a bite.
