Bringing a dog into your household is a life-altering decision. That’s why it’s important to get one that makes sense for your lifestyle, home environment, and persona. And it’s important for your pet that you bring him into a nurturing and loving home where he can flourish and be happy.
The first thing you should do is make certain you’re ready to take care of a dog.
Over the past 8 weeks, Parma Animal Shelter volunteers have been participating in American Kennel Club Good Citizen dog training. This pawsome training is not only helping us become better volunteers, but also helping our pups become more adoptable and giving them more enrichment in their time at PAS. We are so proud to be offering this program! Our volunteers have had nothing but great experiences, class participant Sue Bohanek gives us an inside look:
Put your paws together for our Doggie Swim participants! On Sunday, August 13th over 180 dogs joined us at Walter’s Grove Pool! It was a beautiful day. We saw huge jumps in the pool, packs of goldens playing fetch, lots of splashing and lots of running around the pool. We can’t decide who enjoyed themselves more – the dogs or the humans!
Thank you for a great Classic Car Show!
Sunday, June 4th was a big day for Parma Animal Shelter – we raised $5,500 at our Classic Car Show! We couldn’t have done it without you -thank you to all of you who braved the rain for this spectacular event.
We would also like to thank the wonderful Custom Color & Collision, Baird Wealth Management, Axelrod Buick GMC and all of our sponsors.
Wait and Watch: The mother offers her newborn kittens their best chance for survival so wait and watch as long as you safely can for her to return before removing them. Mom’s may be gone as long as 4-5 hours to get food. Also, be aware if you find a single kitten please wait at a safe distance as the mother may be moving the kittens to a safer place which may take some time when moving several kittens one at a time.
Learn what to do with your pets while you go on vacation.
Admit it. You may not want to leave your pets while you go on vacation, but it may be better for them for many reasons, from safety concerns (they may get lost) to caring for them…
