Hellooooo Friends

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.

In just 55 days pets will be showered with treats and gifts and join in on all the festivities and holiday cheer. Jess and the team promised myself and my buddies that Santa Paws would visit AWSS too. Grant our wishes this year by dropping off your Santa Paws Box.
