What's New At PAWS?
Oct 27

Nemo was hit by a car. A good samaritan found him and brought him to one of our Community Partners, Animal Emergency and Trauma. After being stabilized and transferred to another one of our dedicated partner veterinarians Poulsbo Marina Vet Clinic, Nemo underwent reconstructive dental surgery to remove damaged teeth and nerve endings that would have caused chronic pain. Nemo is on the mend at our Pleasant Beach facility and will soon be ready to find his new forever home, but his vet bills are substantial. Your donation today will help us to continue to provide life-saving care for injured animals in need.

7 Things You Can Do to Make Halloween Safer for Your Pet

• Don’t feed your pets Halloween candy, especially if it contains chocolate or xylitol (a common sugar substitute found in sugar-free candies and gum);

• Make sure your pet is properly identified (microchip, collar and ID tag) in case s/he escapes through the open door while you’re distracted with trick-or-treaters;

• Keep lit candles and jack-o-lanterns out of reach of pets;

• If you plan to put a costume on your pet, make sure it fits properly and is comfortable, doesn’t have any pieces that can easily be chewed off, and doesn’t interfere with your pet’s sight, hearing, breathing, opening its mouth, or moving. Take time to get your pet accustomed to the costume before Halloween, and never leave your pet unsupervised while he/she is wearing a costume;

• Keep glow sticks and glow jewelry away from your pets. Although the liquid in these products isn’t likely toxic, it tastes really bad and makes pets salivate excessively and act strangely;

• If your pet is wary of strangers or has a tendency to bite, put him/her in another room during trick-or-treating hours or provide him/her with a safe hiding place;

• Keep your pet inside.
