Our pets of the week are Kelli and Conway. Kelli is a pretty, 10-month -old tortoiseshell kitty. She has a beautiful face with big, golden eyes that just beg for attention. Kelli is gentle-natured, but at the same time she’s playful and adventurous. She has been spayed and is ready to go home to live with her special family the day she is adopted.
Conway is a 10-year-old Boxer mix. His graying muzzle confirms his age, but Conway is a happy boy and is still spry on his feet. He loves to meet visitors and go for walks on a leash. Conway was surrendered when his previous family moved. Senior animals often have a hard time with placement, but Conway has a lot of love and joy to give for his remaining years.
We already have experienced some severe weather, even though our storm season usually doesn’t begin until April and May. Along with a disaster plan for the family, it’s important to have a disaster plan for your pet. Here are several simple steps you can take to help protect your pet. ID your pet with tags and a microchip and have several photos for identification. Pack a pet emergency kit with basic first aid, pet food, clean water and copies of your pet’s health records. Have leashes or harnesses and a pet carrier ready in case you need to evacuate quickly. Our pets do so much to enrich our lives and in return they depend on us for their safety and well-being.
