Burr … It’s cold outside! Snuggle up with an adoptable pet: Jan 8-9

Staten Island, NY – How cold is it really cold? Winter can be a fun time for you and your family, but how much can your dog or cat handle?

With temperatures dropping in our area, take these precautions to keep your pet safe.

  • If your first thoughts are “It’s too cold,” it’s likely too cold for them, too. Take shorter walking walks and watch for frostbite symptoms. Call your vet if you see any signs.
  • Always keep your pet on a leash – especially when walking during dangerous weather. Pets may lose their sense of smell in the snow. In the event of an emergency, be sure to keep your pet’s cards up to date.
  • As difficult as it may be, keep your pet’s coat plump. try not to cut it and do not bathe your pet too much; It can dry out their skin.
  • After walking, clean the paws, arms, legs and abdomen. Streets and sidewalks are covered in antifreeze, salt, and chemicals that can be absorbed or ingested.
  • Check under your hood. Outdoor cats tend to seek shelter there. Hit the hood before starting your vehicle.

See who we have here! Presenting… donuts!

Hello, I’m Maven! I’m a 2-year-old Chewini. I am 28 pounds of pure love and silliness. I am fully box and house trained. I can be shy at first and it may take a while to warm up with you, but believe me, I’m worth the wait. I’m slowly learning to trust people again as long as I give my space. Don’t worry if you can’t find me, I’m probably hiding under the coffee table or in my trunk where I feel safe. I’m good with other dogs. I have an adopted brother who teaches me what to do with games and rules around the house. I am a quick learner and love to please my personality. I’m a good girl when I’m home alone and I wait with personal patience. I’m learning to scrub the door if you need to use the potty. I have a huge food drive and want to learn as many tricks as possible, I love to be a good listener and can’t wait to find my far home. My adoption fee is $500. I am bred in Hunterdon County, NJ To adopt this pet please visit https://www.louieslegacy.org/adopt

Many believe that cats enjoy solitude. But no two are alike. Some would rather be cuddle up than be alone.

Unlike other animals, vets say cats can spend up to 24 hours alone if they have fresh water, fresh food, and clean litter. (This does not apply to kittens or large cats, however.)

Your vet can help you make the right decision about how long you can leave your cat alone. It is always best to leave her with a pet sitter or someone who can help in an emergency.

Let me shed some light on…

Bor... It's cold outside!  Snuggle with an adoptable pet: January 8-9

This big, cute girl was left on our doorstep in the middle of the night. She was crying, stuck in a tanker that was too small for her, and abandoned by her previous owners. At first, we couldn’t fathom why anyone would dispose of their pet in such a cruel way, but once we got them out, we quickly realized it was probably because of her ear, which was ripped and bleeding. Our vet told us that she most likely had an untreated ear infection that had infected and caused this beautiful girl so much pain. She is now undergoing treatment and for the first time in a long time she is feeling comfortable in her own skin. Marble claws were also ripped off at some point in her life – another cruel treatment she was subjected to. Marbles is ready for her “eternal happiness”! With their loving disposition, Marbles are great for calming anxiety. She would do so well as a single pet that her parents could love and adore.
