Rescue A Furb Today Please!

I love all of the work and effort rescues put into trying to save as many animal lives as they can. They work tirelessly and give so much of their own time, money and love to try to save these animals that most other people could care less about on a daily basis. The least we can do is make sure that we help them help these pets as often as we can. Pass this post, these pictures and links around as much as you possibly can! You never know you might be responsible for saving a life or maybe more!

Frank

Frank

 

 

Frank is a goofy boy! He is a staff and volunteer FAVORITE! Frank is social, polite, and knows how to charm everyone in the room. Frank LOVES to play ball! While out in the yard today, the volunteer said that once she got tired of throwing the ball for Frank, he took over and played fetch with himself! While in the office, Frank was calm and well- behaved, basking in all of the attention he was receiving. He sat down and spun around on his butt to face each person willing to pet him. Frank responded very well to positive reinforcement training, and seemed to really enjoy learning!

 

Ferry Mama

Ferry Mama

 

 

Ferry Mama is beyond beautiful! needs a home ASAP! She is obedient, affectionate and leash trained according to helpers. Everyone that met her says she is an amazing lady and would love to be in a home ASAP! Ferry Mama was found as a stray wondering the streets of Staten Island and would very much like to have a new forever home to be comfortable in.  She loves to snuggle and play and wants to share her love with someone that will love her back.

 

 

 

Chili

Chili

 

Chili is definitely one of the good guys, the kind your Mom refers to as ‘a keeper’. He’s sweet-natured, respectful, extremely friendly and stunningly handsome – just look into those bi-colored eyes and tell me you’re not smitten! Chili is snuggly and happy to see me when leashed up for a walk. Once out in the yard he’s even happier to see his favorite toy, the tennis ball. The only thing Chili enjoys more than tennis balls are his fellow dogs and he’ll literally drop what he’s doing and run over to greet them with a wiggly butt and happy ‘helicopter tail’. Chili keeps a clean den, uses the bathroom promptly once outside.

 

 

Nutmeg

Nutmeg

 

 

Nutmeg is sugar and spice and all things nice! Named for the seed whose color she shares, Nutmeg is a truly stunning beauty. With her soft, short fur and sleek physique she has the look of royalty. Nutmeg isn’t just a pretty face, she’s also an enthusiastic puppy with personality to spare. She really loves to play with her ball and is thrilled to meet other dogs both large and small. Nutmeg is a little timid around people right now and her tail stays tucked much of the time but she accepts petting and soft words and will obediently sit for treats before taking them very gently from the hand. In the street she walks low and very fast, the walk of a scared young dog. Her new family will need to help Nutmeg learn that the outside world is not going to hurt her and it’s OK to move at a slower pace but with time and love she will get there.

Happy Tails Spa Ear Clear

Happy Tails Spa Ear Clear

Happy Tails Spa Ear Clear

 

With all of the animals I have at my house the one thing I have to say I don’t think I do enough is clean all of their ears. When the new kitten, Rupert, arrived at our house after giving him a thorough bath I had to clean his ears which were gross. The doctor later gave me meds for his ears to get rid of the mites and keep his ears clean but it made me think about the other pets too. When I give the dogs baths I don’t always clean their ears but I used to clean the dogs ears all of the time, now I have been a little lazy. Since the arrival of Rupert I have been making sure all of the pets get regular ear cleanings. The medicated cleaner from the vet can only last for so long so I wanted to find a cleaner that I could use and trust for the pets down the line. A pets ears are very delicate and sensitive so you can’t just use any product. Pets can have all types of skin allergies and ear issues are breed specific in certain kinds of pets. Happy Tails Spa Ear Clear has natural ingredients to help relieve your pet from swelling, pain, and wax build up while offering anti-fungal oils to keep the ears clear and healthy. Some of the ingredients in Ear Clearare olive oil for soothing the ear as well as loosening wax, lavender oil which has a soothing scent along with anti-itch and fungal properties, calendula oil aids in wound healing and is antimicrobial, arnica flower which increases circulation to help heal and keep extra fluid from building up, as well as a few other helpful ingredients.

Some other great facts about Happy Tails Spa Ear Clear clear are the bottles are made from recycled post consumer resin, their labels are made from FiberStone a paperless natural material that doesn’t use trees, all products are PETA certified cruelty free and made here in the USA. You know I always love that!
Have you tried any Happy Tails Spa products? I have written about Happy Tails Spa before because of their other great products and their super cute advertisements. Let me know how you feel about Happy Tails Spa items and if you have tried Ear Clear, I would love to know.

Foster & Rescue For the Holiday’s

Animal Foster & Rescue

Animal Foster & Rescue

 

 

 

I know many of you have probably noticed my focusing on helping rescue animals lately. I have recently started working with some people who really focus on trying to keep innocent animals from getting euthanized due to lack of space in shelters and at ACC’s (Animal Care & Control). This is an issue that has always been close to my heart as both of my pooches are rescues one from NYCACC. It is no question to me that these animals need saving. It breaks my heart when I see things like Gone But Not Forgotten folders with images of hundreds of dogs that have been put to sleep for no reason other than there is no where else to put them.
The holiday’s are coming up and I ask that maybe you can find it in your heart to help those that cannot help themselves. Even if you cannot adopt a pet you can foster and help find them a good home! This is the season of giving sooo instead of spending money on presents spend your time and love on a pet that would other wise probably be put to sleep. Even if you have other pets or are apprehensive you can find a pet best suited to you.
If you can or want to adopt think of all of the benefits adoption has. You don’t spend thousands of dollars on a 3lb pooch that was bred with its own parents who will probably only last a few years because of the medical issues inbreeding causes in animals. If you rescue you give a pet a chance to have a safe and loving home which all animals deserve. You will feel better about yourself and your decision everyday you look in to your rescues eyes. I promise you they appreciate it and will love you just as much for keeping them safe.
I thank my pooches everyday for finding me and saving me because without them and the experiences they having given me I would definitely be without. I urge all of you who read my blog or who just plain love animals to seriously consider fostering or adopting this season. You won’t regret it!
If you are interested and are in the NY area click here and bring home your new best friend today!! If you aren’t in the area you can google your local ACC and find out their requirements.
If you have rescued your pet please tell us your story and we will post it on our blog so everyone gets a chance to feel the love!!

Eco-Friendly Pet Bed by Our Green House

Our Green House – natural & organic products for your pets.

I happen to have 2 not so small rescues that I love to death but all of us piled into 1 bed does not make for a comfy nights sleep. For quite some time we were letting our fur-babies sleep on a mattress on the floor that was the same size as our bed! I decided that had to stop. These pups need their own doggie beds instead of us having a useless old mattress that really should have been disposed of years ago. Pet beds can be really expensive especially when you have multiple pets and they are not small. Our Green Househas recycled pet beds for as low as $30.00! This is a great deal for eco-friendly pets!

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
Dogs or cats can rest easy on our stylish, ultra durable, machine washable, and earth friendly Eco Naps. These mats utilize our IntelliTex™ fabric, milled in the USA with 85% of the fabric comprised of post consumer recycled plastic, better known as the soda-pop bottles. Over 40 plastic bottles are diverted from landfills with every Extra Large Eco Nap! Even a Medium Eco Nap Diverts more than 21 bottles with each mat! So go ahead, give your pet a comfortable place to rest and do your part to protect planet Earth. No compromises. Machine Washable. Made in Montana, USA.

Lost Our Home

Its been a brutal kitten season in Phoenix that seems to be never ending so more cats than ever need help but many people are out of town for the summer so it’s a double whammy. This makes our need for cat foster homes greater than ever and is leaving us no way to rescue the 70 plus cats/kittens on our intake wait list that desperately need us. If you or anyone you know in the Phx area is able to foster a cat or kitten PLEASE have them do a foster application asap. We can save their lives if we have a foster home a place them in. Here is the link to the foster application:

http://spreadsheets.google.com/embeddedform?key=rBzwCPX-7V4c68h7jppFr8Q

Also, adopting from us will save lives too since it opens up more foster space. If you or anyone you know is interested in adopting a cat/kitten, please have them visit our website and see all the cats we have posted for adoption. We have so many great cats with great personalities just waiting for their furever home. Here is that link:

http://www.lostourhome.org/

We of course need more fosters for dogs too including a 9 month old yellow lab that needs a foster asap.

PLEASE SUPPORT US BY PASSING THIS ON TO OTHERS IN THE PHOENIX AREA TOO SO WE CAN SAVE THESE PETS. WE CAN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOU!!

Thank you,
