Say Hello to Winslow the Puppy – Christine’s Pet of the Week!
Winslow is a 10-month-old Terrier Mix who was transferred to the Humane Society of West Michigan from a shelter in South Carolina. He has been known to get along with other dogs however, every situation can be different. He is a puppy with a lot of energy so he's going to require work and attention - something to keep in mind before adopting any puppy.
Holiday Safety - With Christmas next week we want to remind people of how to keep their pets safe, especially while there's a lot of people and possibly unfamiliar faces over which can be stressful to a pet. Some safety tips include:
- Have your pet in another room with music playing such as iCalm which is a blue tooth speaker that plays music that is designed to calm your pet.
- Keep an eye on your pet around kids - if a child is not familiar with your pet or vise-versa you want to make sure you are supervising.
- Keep non-pet-friendly food away!
- Give your pet something to do - for dogs give them kongs with peanut butter or a frozen treat. For cats give them a new toy or some catnip.
As the year wraps up, if you have time to give consider the Humane Society of West Michigan which is 100% donor-funded. You can make a monetary donation or even stop at the Humane Society and drop off things they may need such as food, toys, blankets, etc. You can make an online donation here.
