Moving with your pets

Posted by Jennifer on September 9th, 2014

cat-in-box-packing Last month I moved with my pets. It had been over a decade since I last moved, even though I consider myself a “pro” at moving with pets, there were still some surprises! My moving experience has been mostly long-distance moves, the kind that took me and my dogs and cats around the world or across the country. This time I was “only” moving about a half an hour away, but as anyone who’s done a local move with or without their pets before can tell you, you still have to pack everything and plan ahead to make sure everyone arrives safely! Here are some planning and safety tip checklists for locally moving with your pets. Read More

Don’t Shop, Adopt: Inside the exotic pet trade

Posted by Guest Author on August 21st, 2014

adopt-exoticWe love informative infographics that help animals! The awesome folks over at Havahart created the “Don’t Shop, Adopt: Inside the exotic pet trade” infographic below about the exotic pet trade and how it not only harms the exotics but companion pets like dogs and cats as well. Infographics are a great way to learn a lot about a specific topic visually, and this one is full of great facts and figures! Like how even if a baby exotic animal survives transportation, which most do not, they are often sent to buyers who don’t know how to properly care for them. Or how adopting your next pet from a shelter or rescue will not only save their life, but will also help lower the amount of exotic animals that are captured and traded… will also save you thousands of dollars each year! Check out the infographic below for a price comparison of how much it takes to own an exotic pet vs a companion pet and some other great information, and remember, Don’t Shop, Adopt! Thanks Havahart for spreading this important message! Read More
