Prevent A Litter Coalition


Every year in our nation, animal organizations take in, care for and attempt to adopt out millions of pets who, through no fault of their own can no longer be cared for by their families, are born without an awaiting home, have been abused or abandoned, or are just lost, but have no identification and therefore no way back home.

Although precise data is not available, it is estimated that 5-10 million American pets are taken in by shelters and rescue groups each year. Of which, 3-4 million are euthanized by often under funded animal care and control organizations, as a heartbreaking way to manage the numbers of homeless and unwanted pets in our society. Additionally, these statistics do not take into account the many free roaming and feral animals (estimated to be in the tens of millions) that fend for themselves in our neighborhoods.

Not only do these animals we claim to love suffer greatly, but also communities spend millions of dollars to admit, round up, house, adopt out or euthanize homeless animals, and free roaming and feral pets can annoy a public that has no understanding of their circumstances. In addition, this tragedy takes an enormous emotional toll on those who handle related issues on their community's behalf.

Do we not set the tone for our society by the way that we treat, and honor our responsiblity towards those that are dependent upon us?

If you have pets, or are considering adding a pet to your family, please learn about your pet's lifetime needs, and care for your pet responsibly. You will be a part of the solution!

Buffy's Woobie

Even dogs need security blankets. Buffy's so funny when she calmly wads up her crate mat between her front paws and gently gnaws at it. This will keep her occupied for usually half an hour. It seems to have a calming effect. Much the opposite of when I let the dogs out back and she sees a rabbit scamper across the yard and goes completely nutso, barking at the top of her lungs.

Pet Poisoning Antidote Hotline

The ASPCA has a poison control hotline for pets. If you suspect your pet has been exposed to something toxic, you can call their toll-free hotline number which is: 888-4ANI-HELP (888-426-4435) and you will be connected with a trained ASPCA vet who is knowledgeable in such matters. The hotline is staffed around the clock.

Nemo's Virus

Last weekend Nemo caught some sort of a virus. I hardly slept at all Monday night due to having to let him out six times between 1:45am and 5:00am to go potty. It was brutal. Luckily the vet was able to see him Tuesday morning and Nemo was put on 500mg of metronidazole (1 tablet 2x/day) as well as Purina Veterinary Diets Diabetes and Colitis formula dog food. He's been doing much better, thankfully. I'm glad Buffy didn't get sick. It's bad enough having ONE dog who's not feeling well.
