You may have seen me online or met me at the shelter, I am Rolo the tall and handsome blonde chap trotting about. I survey the shelter each and every day and I have been given the job to report back to you and share the paw-some upcoming projects and events.
Howloween has come and gone but the worst night of the year is yet to come, remember remember the 5 November. It may light up some human lives but for my buddies and I it is our worst nightmare. The amazing humans at AWSS have given me some tips to share to ensure your pets are safe this Guy Fawkes:
- If you can, stay at home with your pets.
- If you have to go out, place your animals indoors in a secure room. During stressful times animals like familiarity so place their bedding and blankets around them and provide them with plenty of toys and treats to keep them occupied.
- Draw the curtains, secure any exits and play the TV or radio to draw their attention away from the noise of the fireworks.
- If you know your pets are petrified of fireworks and become stressed, visit your veterinarian beforehand and they can prescribe a sedative to alleviate the symptoms.
- Make sure your pet is easily identifiable - attach an ID disk to their collar and make sure your pet is micro chipped and the micro chip details are registered and up to date.
