How To Inspect a Dog Fence For Problem Areas

The ASPCA reports that around 710,000 dogs in the U.S. enter shelters and are returned to their owners. That’s a small percentage of the 3.1 million dogs that end up in animal shelters.

Just got a new pup? Here’s a few things you should know.

It might be tempting to give your new pup table scraps, or want to give them a variety of food options, but it is better for them to maintain a consistent diet of no-grain dog food.

Watch Lucy run free for the first time!

Sandy, a volunteer foster parent at Companion Pet Rescue & Transport in Connecticut (, took a video of Lucy to show us just how happy she was to run free her fist time off a leash. The dog park was installed by Pet Playgrounds in Sandy’s backyard. Pet Playgrounds offers the most affordable and most effective way to contain your dog or dogs. Here’s what Sandy had to say about Lucy’s experience:

We have a great dane/hound mix that just came into our rescue, named Lucy. We brought her to an adoption event Sunday but she was not settled down ’cause she just needed to get some energy out and to just run. It was suggested to bring her down the street to the dog park to let her run a little. Having personally just met Lucy the day before, I was a little leery of how she was going to behave with other dogs, and how they would behave with her, and not wanting to be responsible for something not going well, I took her five minutes further away, to my dog park! So, this is the video of her going off leash for the first time under our watch. She also met my pups for the first time… in a nice safe environment.

Pets for Vets saves animals while providing therapy for suffering veterans. Donate today.

Pets for Vets believes our country owes military veterans a debt of gratitude. Our soldiers have been brave but many of them have returned with physical and emotional injuries that have made it difficult to transition back to civilian life. Some estimates state that as many as 20% of returning military veterans suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Pets for Vets is helping.

Their goal is to help heal the emotional wounds of military veterans by pairing them with a shelter animal that is specially selected to match his or her personality. Professional animal trainers rehabilitate the animals and teach them good manners to fit into the veteran’s lifestyle. Training can also include desensitization to wheel chairs or crutches as well as recognizing panic or anxiety disorder behaviors. It’s win-win.

Needy shelter animals receive a second chance at life while giving our returning soldiers a second chance at health and happiness. The bonds of friendship formed between man and animal have the power to ease the suffering of our troops when they return from overseas.
