Please remember that only around 10 percent of fleas in your house are actually on your pet - the rest may be in bedding, carpeting, or furniture. Regular vacumming, washing, and application of insecticide is neccessary if you have an active flea infestation.

This week's featured pet is Buttercup, a collie/beagle mix who is about 5 years old and spent most of her life outdoors all alone. Buttercup seeks love and affection and is house trained - which is amazing for a dog who has spent so little time inside! Buttercup has a sunny disposition that matches her name; she will make a great companion for any home . In return for your love, she will provide you with endless face-licks and tail wags of contentment. Buttercup is on a low-calorie diet at this time because she is a bit plump... she would love to get some exercise with you!

With spring (and flea season!) on the way, we would like to remind you that un-neutered pets will soon be in danger of unwanted pregnancy. Please be sure that your pet is spayed or neutered so that you do not have any unexpected surprises with the warmer weather!
