Tips for a Humane Holiday Season
Monday, 15 December 2008

From American Humane: Holiday Pet-iquette. Here are some ways you can make the upcoming holidays more enjoyable for your pets -- without compromising safety.



  • Take your dog for extra walks to relieve holiday stress for you both.
  • Make sure holiday guests know your pet's routine and food allowances. Disruptions to either can be upsetting and even unhealthy for animals.
  • If your pet is shy or nervous, make sure he has a quiet place to sleep and relax during any holiday gatherings at your home.


  • Dress your pet in costumes that are uncomfortable or hazardous (for example, tying something around a pet's neck is never a good idea).
  • Feed your pet turkey bones, gravy or other rich "people foods" that could cause obstructions or indigestion.
  • Decorate with tempting yet potentially dangerous items, such as tinsel, which could end up impairing a curious pet's digestion.

'Tis the Season to Be Jolly

... And DKC has two fun events this weekend!


Photos with Santa at Petsmart, Forest and Inwood. The DKC Adopt a Pet team will be there from 11:00 to 4:00 on Saturday and Sunday. You can get your holiday photo with your pet, and benefit the shelter at the same time.


Raffle drawing is on Saturday at the shelter at 1:00 p.m. Come see if you won a prize and invite all the folks who bought tickets to win. Prizes will be announced on the website.


Join at the fun at both events -- and help make the holiday happier for our furry friends!

Found Dogs
Friday, 12 December 2008

Found two dogs at the intersection of Homer St. and Vickery Blvd. on Monday, December 8 at 11 am. Neither dog has ID tags and neither is microchipped.


Male purebred Shar Pei is young, obedient; timid at first, but then very sweet. He is not neutered and was found with a fancy red leather collar (but no tags).


Female Golden Retriever (?) mix is the sweetest, most gentle girl with the best disposition ever. She seems very young - maybe 1 year old, and weighs about 40 lbs with long white and tan hair.


If you know these dogs, please contact (214)-515-0493 to retrieve them.
