April is National Prevention of Animal Cruelty Month.
Started by the ASPCA, April is designated to helping raise awareness about important issues facing all animals.
April is also National Adopt a Greyhound Month.
There is a greater need to place ex-racing greyhounds into permanent homes than at any point in recent history, as a result of past and pending greyhound racing track closings across the country. National-Adopt-a-Greyhound Month is the perfect time to adopt a gentle companion into your home.
In honor of National Adopt a Greyhound Month, we will partnering with our business neighbor, Vom Fass, to benefit Everything Greyt Greyhound Rescue for our monthly nail trim session later in the month.
Our store will be closed on Sunday, April 21st for Easter.
Have a safe and hoppy day!!
Tuesday, April 23rd is National Lost Dogs Awareness Day.
On April 23, 2014, Lost Dogs of America created and launched the first National Lost Dog Awareness Day (NLDAD), a canine-centric holiday aimed to bring attention to all dogs that are lost each year, while also celebrating the thousands of lost dogs successfully reunited with their families.
Lost Dogs of America is an all-volunteer organization with the exclusive purpose of providing a free service to help reunite families with their lost dogs.
The tenacious efforts of the combined states’ volunteers efforts, along with over 459,282 fans have helped reunite over 99,521 dogs with their families since 2011. Getting lost dogs back home reduces stress on owners’, staff at shelters/animal control facilities, other dogs in the facilities, and ultimately saves taxpayers’ money. It also opens up kennel space for truly homeless dogs.
For more information, or to join the volunteer network, please check out the Lost Dogs of America website: http://lostdogsofamerica.org
Friday, April 26th is National Hairball Awareness Day.
Celebrated on the last Friday in April, it is listed as one of the Pet Health Awareness Events of the American Veterinary Medical Association. The formation of hairballs is a common feline condition that is brought on by self-grooming and the associated ingestion of hair. While not usually an issue (except to your carpet), hairballs can occasionally collect in the stomach or small intestine, and can cause a potentially life-threatening blockage in the digestive system. Don’t wait to contact your veterinarian if your cat continues to gag, retch or vomit without producing a hairball, loses his appetite, has diarrhea or constipation, or is lethargic.
For some helpful tips on reducing or eliminating hairballs, check out the following website: http://cattime.com/cat-facts/health/2134-national-hairball-awareness-day
