Five July 4 Pet Safety Tips

Animal Care reminds all pet owners to keep their pets safe this July 4th.

  1. Keep pets away from fireworks and loud noises
  2. Keep your dog and cat away from hot grills, matches and lighter fluid
  3. Do not feed your pet "people food" or alcohol
  4. Sunscreen, insect repellant and citronella candles can be harmful.  If your pet ingests a poisonous substance, call your local veterinary clinic or Animal Poison Control at 1-888-426-4435.
  5. Protect your pet!  Ensure he is wearing a Broward County license tag on a secure collar and that his microchip, if any, is registered to your current contact information. fluid.  
Found Kittens?  Here is What you Should Do!

A shelter is no place for baby kittens.  If you find baby kittens please leave them in place to see if their Mother is in the area--she is the best caregiver for her babies.  If Mom is not around, then please help by fostering the kittens until they are old enough to be adopted. Animal Care will supply food and medical care for the family.  Read all about Caring for Found Kittens here.
