Holiday Pet Safety Tips

Valentine's Day

  1. Chocolate in all forms - especially dark or baking chocolate, can be very dangerous for dogs and cats. Symptoms of significant chocolate ingestion may include vomiting, diarrhea, hyperactivity, increased thirst, frequent urination, elevated heart rate and seizures.
  2. Candies and chewing gum - containing the artificial sweetener "xylitol" can be poisonous to dogs. Even small amounts of sweetener can cause a sudden drop in blood sugar, which leads to depression, lack of coordination and seizures. In cases of significantly low blood sugar, liver failure has been known to occur.
  3. Ingesting tin foil and cellophane candy wrappers - can pose a choking hazard or causes intestinal blockage.

Halloween Tips

  1. Don't leave your pet in the yard on Halloween - There are many pranksters on this evening that have teased, injured, stolen, or even killed pets.
  2. Trick-or-Treat candies are not for pets - Chocolate is poisonous to many animals, and candy wrappers can be hazardous if swallowed.
  3. Be careful of pets around Jack-O'-Lanterns - Pets can knock these over and cause fires.  Curious kittens are a high risk to getting burned.
  4. Don't dress your pet in a costume unless you know he/she loves it - Costumes can cause stress on your pets.

Dangers from Christmas Trees

  1. Needles – needles from the tree are indigestible, (even artificial) so keep your pet away from the tree as much as possible.
  2. Artificial Trees – small pieces of plastic or aluminum can break off and be swallowed.  This can cause intestinal blockage or irritation of the mouth.
  3. Stand Water – don’t use preservatives, this can be toxic if consumed by a thirsty pet.
  4. Lights – lights can get very hot, remove them from the lower branches of the tree to prevent burning.
  5. Tinsel – the sharp edges can cause cuts in the mouth and can also block intestine causing many side effects.
  6. Ornaments – don’t use edible ornaments, and refrain from using fragile glass ornaments.  Ornaments with hooks could possibly snag an ear or tail.  If swallowed, they can get lodged in the throat.
  7. Angel Hair – Angel hair is generally made of spun glass, and can cause irritation on contact.
  8. Electrical Cords – tape firmly to the walls or floor so they can’t be chewed on.
  9. Poinsettias – these are very dangerous to your pets if they are ingested.  Please keep them away from your pet.
  10. Christmas Trees Anchor tree securely. Climbing cats and wagging tail dogs can knock it over Hang breakable, glass ornaments well out of reach. Keep tinsel, ribbons, garland out of pets reach especially cats that are intrigued by them. Can become lodged in their throat. Clean all pine needles frequently. Can be toxic. Prevent your pet from drinking water in the tree stand.
  11. Holiday House Plants Lilies can be deadly to cats and so many plants can cause cats to have kidney failure Poinsettia although not as toxic as people think can upset your pets digestive system Mistletoe, especially berries is highly toxic. Holly, Amaryllis and Hibiscus can cause vomiting and diarrhea Certain types of Ivy, such as English Ivy can cause harm
  12. Lights, candles and fragrance Keep lights and extension cords safely secured or covered to deter chewing, which can lead to electric shock or even electrocution. Better yet invest in pet-proof extension cords, or spray with products or spray with Bitter Apple or Chew Stop Candles can be fragrant and enticing to pets. Can be a fire hazard if knocked over. Liquid potpourri and sachets can be very dangerous.

The Shelter is seeking donations of several items, including blankets, paper towels, dog/cat toys, dog/cat food, puppy/kitten food, liquid soap, cat litter (no clump), dog/cat treats, detergent, and bleach.

Crate Training


1) Let the pet get accustomed to crate by propping the door open and allow them to explore, you can encourage them with food or treats.
2) When your pet is comfortable, close the door and keep it confined for about 5-10 minutes at a time, increase each stay a little longer.
3) Crates also serves as a bed, it can be left alone throughout the night (Don’t overuse the crate), think of it as a safe haven.
4) Many dogs receive their meals in crates.
a) Finicky eaters are made to concentrate on the food
b) People with more than one dog can regulate the food intake
c) If you have a dominant dog this keeps them away so the others can eat in peace.
5) Crates serves for housebreaking (make sure the crate is big enough for the pet to Stand up and turn around. The animal will not soil in the same place it eats or Sleeps.
