Easy's Featured Pet

Hello everybody! My name is Milton and I'm a very gentle soul. Me and my two siblings were kept in kennels that were so small we could not even lift our heads up. Our "owners" would keep us in these kennels for 20 hours at a time! We were so unhappy and didn't understand why no one would play with us. My little brother was severely underweight too. But a nice neighbor called the police, charged the owner, and took us to the shelter so we could find proper families that would actually care for us and treat us how we're supposed to be treated.  Would you be that fur-ever home we're longing for?

Preparing for Winter

Winter Dog Care: Paws
Snow, ice, and road salt wreak havoc on a dog’s paws. The cold surface can dry out paw pads, causing them to flake and crack. Road salt, which is sharp and often combined with harsh chemicals, is a real canine hazard. Not only is it an irritant, but it’s also potentially toxic if ingested. The goal of balms or boots is to protect your dog’s paws from conditions like frostbite, as well as healing any damage that does occur.

Winter Dog Care: Nose, Coat, and Skin
Just as humans feel the effects of dry air and cold temperatures with chapped lips and flaky, dried-out skin, so do our dogs. Dogs’ noses can become chapped, cracked, and flaky. Regardless of coat type, your dog’s skin can become itchy and dry in winter. This can lead to infection or hot spots. To keep your dog’s skin and coat healthy, shampoo a little less frequently and brush your dog often. Also, consider adding some of these products to your winter dog care routine.

Winter Dog Care Cheat Sheet

  • Protect your dog’s paws from outdoor surfaces. Wipe them off (even between toes) when you go back inside.

  • Consider your dog’s breed and coat type, and whether they may need a sweater or jacket.

  • Brush your dog’s coat frequently to get rid of dead skin. Condition as necessary.

  • If your dog’s nose becomes dry or chapped, use a healing balm or cream.

  • Make sure your dog has a warm place to sleep inside, especially if you keep the house cool.

  • Provide mental and physical stimulation and play while indoors.

Spay/ Neuter Please 'n Thanks!

Spaying/ neutering your pet helps control the pet homelessness crisis, which results in millions of healthy animals being euthanized in the U.S. each year because there aren’t enough homes. There are also medical and behavioral benefits:
  • Spaying female pets may help them live longer, healthier lives

  • Neutering male pets:

    • may prevent testicular cancer and some prostate problems

    • may make them less likely to roam

    • may help them be better behaved

Spaying/ neutering your pets is also highly cost-effective. The cost of your pet's spay/ neuter surgery is far less than the cost of having and caring for a litter.​
