Save A Pet Raises Money for New Shelter

Save A Pet Raises Money for New Shelter

Save A Pet continues to raise money for a new shelter.

That's according to a Save A Pet news release.

The organization plans to close on the land this month.

So far, SAP has raised a little more than $35K. They need $350K.

Out of state donors must  use NetWork for Good as SAP can't solicit donations outside the state of Georgia. 

See SAP's website for more information.

Volunteers Needed for Animal Control

 Volunteers are desperately needed at Warner Robins Animal Control and at all of our local rescues.  The day to day management of an Animal Control Facility is no easy job. 

They may open to the public at 10 a.m., but in reality are open much earlier getting the shelter ready for the public. 

Pets have to be moved and pens/cages cleaned and disinfected.  That in itself is a cold wet job.  In the cat rooms the newspaper has to be cleaned out before cleaning and disinfection.  Litter boxes have to be dumped, disinfected, washed and dried then refilled.  Food and water bowls are collected, washed, dried then restocked to feed everyone.  Towels have to be washed, dried and folded.

Chicken Jerky May Cause Sickness in Dogs

Chicken Jerky May Cause Sickness in Dogs

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, chicken jerky dog treats made in China are once again causing sickness in pets.

Citing an FDA warning issued in November, the AVMA said it has received reports from the Canadian Veterinary medical Association of illnesses similar to the cases reported in 2007.

While the specific cause of the problem in 2007 was never pinpointed, the FDA says reported cases of illnesses in dogs given chicken jerky treats made in China are on the rise again.
