Paw Injuries

Paw Injuries –

What to look for

.

and

What to do

.

Author,  Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

Did you know that injuries to the paws are quite common in dogs?  It’s true and once you really think about it, it makes perfect sense.  After all, our dogs spend a lot of time on their paws! Running on the pavement, hiking in the woods, and walking on the ice and snow are just a few examples of the wear and tear our dog’s paws take!

So what exactly causes injuries to our dog’s paws? The list is endless, really but here are a few possible causes:

  • Cracked pads from the weather (hot, dry, cold elements are all culprits)
  • Insect bites such as bees, wasps or red ants
  • Broken toenails (keep those nails trimmed!)
  • Rocks between his toes (or other objects such as twigs and burrs or even ice particles)
  • Cuts and lacerations (ice, glass and other sharp objects)

Now that you know some of the causes of paw injuries, you might be wondering what the signs are.  Watch for these signs:

  • Chewing or Licking of the paws
  • Whining, yelping or crying
  • Avoiding the use of or neglecting to put pressure on the suspect paw
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Itching

There are a few things you can do to help your pet keep his paws in good health.  Start by paying close attention to where you walk your dog.  There are many chemicals and contaminants that your dog comes in contact with on a daily basis. It’s always a good idea to wash your dog’s paws off after a walk. After washing off your dog’s paws, consider using a balm to keep the pads on his feet from becoming dry and cracked.  You should also check between your dog’s toes to make sure little rocks or other objects have not become lodged in between his toes or even between the pads on his paws. During the winter months, be sure to use pet friendly de-icers.  Aside from causing injury to your dog’s paws, your dog may ingest harmful chemicals as he licks his paws and that can be downright deadly. 

It’s a great responsibility to care for a dog.  Your dog’s overall health, from his ears right down to his paws, is up to you!  Be a good steward, your canine pal is counting on you.

Why Do Dogs Have a Strong Sense of Smell

The Nose Knows – a dog’s strong sense of smell

Why Do Dogs

.

.

Have a Strong

.

.

Sense of Smell

.

.

  Author, Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

 

Ever wonder why Fido can sniff out that treat lost under the couch?  Dogs have a sense of smell stronger than a human by at least 100,000 times.  They are miracle workers when it comes to “sniffing” out things.  It is truly amazing.  For example, a Bloodhound, one of the most noteworthy sniffing dogs there is, has over 300 million smell receptors!  We humans have a measly 5 million so that should put it into perspective.  Dogs can also smell a human fingerprint that is one week old!  

A large contributing factor to a dog’s strong sense of smell is that their nose is made up of a moist, leathery surface which determines the direction of the air currents.  When they sniff, they are capturing the air directly into their nostrils and the moist surfaces within their noses capture the scent so the dogs’ receptors can decipher them.  It is a rather complex process that is broken down with ease inside of your dog.  Some research shows that the breeds that have long ears, again, Bloodhounds, are added by the length of the ears which whip around the scents making is easier to move toward the nose.

With such a super power it only makes sense to enlist the support of a dog with a variety of tasks.  Some dogs can be trained to detect certain odors such as drugs, mold, humans and even cancer. For example, it has been found that dogs can smell the breath of a human to locate or determine lung and breast cancer.  They have also been known to detect bladder and prostate cancer by simply smelling the urine of a human.  They were found to be accurate 99% of the time with lung cancer, 88% of the time with breast cancer.  Studies show this percentage to be within the same range many of the high tech gadgets used by the medical fields have come up with.

So, remember – your dog really is “the nose for news”, so to speak.  Don’t bother trying to hide his treats are toys, he’ll sniff them out anyway.  This leaves us kind of wondering, are there any toys, treats – human or otherwise that you have to go to great lengths to keep your dog away from due to his fantastic sense of smell?  Let us know.

a Raw Diet?

Author,  Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

As the New Year rolled around, you might have made some health and wellness resolutions for yourself as well as the two-legged members of your family.  Diet and exercise is a top concern for many people this time of year but what about the four-legged members of your family – particularly, your dog or cat?  Have you set some resolutions for your pet companions?  If not, you just might want to consider taking a close look at what you are feeding your pet.  The Raw Pet Food diet is becoming increasingly more popular, especially as we humans learn more and more about the health benefits.  Read on to learn more. 

Always research everything thoroughly and speak with your veterinarian to make sure this would be a good alternative for your pet.  Pets with food allergies have done very well on raw diets, as well as other health related problems.  Felines need specific ingredients to keep them healthy, more so that your canine. 

What’s in a raw food diet, anyway? It may consist of –

  • Fruit
  • Dairy
  • Eggs
  • Vegetables
  • Muscle meat
  • Whole or ground bones
  • Organ meat
  • Supplements

Why should I consider feeding a raw diet?

First and foremost, a raw diet allows you, as your pet’s protector and advocate, to have complete control. What do I mean?  Well, with a raw food diet, you will know exactly what you are putting in your pet’s bowl.  With commercial foods, there are so many different ingredients and additives that it’s not uncommon to become completely confused as to what you really feeding your pet.  If your pet becomes ill or has a reaction of some sort, it can be very hard to really pin-point the problem because you don’t’ really know what you are feeding. 

Second of all, some commercial foods may not be the healthiest option.  Why?  Well, some of these products have cheap fillers like rice by-products, corn, and animal by products.  Not to mention the salt.  These cheap fillers and additives can lead to major health problems! Heart disease, obesity, cancer, diabetes, tartar build up…you get the idea?

Finally, a raw diet can promote health and general well-being. Just like their human counterparts, all pets need to eat a well-balance diet.  Think – food groups.  A raw diet leads to a nice shiny coat, strong bones, and lean muscle.  These are all things you would want for yourself, right?  Your pet should be no different. 

Whether you choose a raw diet for your pet or not, you should always be educated about the product you are feeding.  A good diet will lead to a long, healthy lifestyle, which we all want for our pets.  The added bonus will be less money out of pocket to your vet.

What are the Benefits of Overnight Pet Care

Gus Bennett, cat under covers

Gus Bennett – Nap Time!!

What are the Benefits of Overnight Pet Care?

 

Author, Noelle Dunn, for Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

Finding the perfect place for your pet’s care when you have to go out of town is a very stressful thing for many pet owners. Quite often people postpone trips and time away from home for the sheer fact they don’t want their pet to suffer or be uncomfortable. These days your options are unlimited, when it comes to pet care. While there are many options there is one that can’t be beat. In home, overnight pet care is the best. Here are a few of the reasons why you need to consider overnight pet sitting as an alternative to other care services such as kennels or group boarding facilities.

– Routines won’t change. Most pets love their routine. It’s comfortable and a known. Mealtime, playtime and walks. Hugs and love to boot. Sticking to these schedules makes your pet feel comfortable. Your being away from them is stressor enough. Deviate from a routine and it can stress your pet even more.

– Home Sweet Home. Your pet would much prefer being home in their environment. Sights, sounds and smells of home keep the pets feeling secure. Your pet can sleep in their own bed, play with their own toys and pitter patter around without the nuisance of being locked up in a room full of cages with other animals. Taking your pet elsewhere for care while you’re away can further stress them which can lead to stress related illnesses. 

– Security – For your pet as well as your home. Seeking out home care for your pet is an excellent security system. Keep your home and your pet safe with someone staying there over night, someone will to turn on lights, make a presence known and keep your pooch company. It keeps your pet safe from danger and prevents possible vandalism and break-ins while you’re away because your home doesn’t look vacant.  Not only that, if a pipe bursts or some other at home problem occurs, your pet sitter can notify someone of the matter, possibly saving you thousands of dollars.

– Illness. As mentioned earlier being separated from your pet can stress them out. Stress can lead to illness. Additionally taking your pet to stay at a daycare/kennel, where many other dogs are and their stress levels rise, they can catch colds or illnesses spread by other dogs. Diseases can be spread in kennel environments. It’s not worth the risk.

Avoid the stress for you and your pet, and Leave knowing your pet will be home, safe and sound. Look for a Professional Pet Care Provider. Research a few businesses before you make a decision. Check out their website, make sure the owner’s history is on there, read articles, look for experience and expertise.  Read our other articles on what to look for in a pet sitter to help keep you and your pets safe.

Happy pet owning !!

January Pet Care Tips

and

Winter

Pet Care Tips

From

A NH

Pet Care 

Professional

Author, Dorinne Whynott, Owner of Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

Having been in the animal field most of my life, working in animal welfare, animal rescue,

Animal Hospitals and now in the Largest NH Pet Sitting Company, I have put together a few

Pet Care Tips for every month, here is the Month of January.

Update Calendar

As you flip over to the new year.  Put reminders when your pet’s Veterinary Visit is due.  Include Annual physical, vaccines and Heartworm check (for dogs).  Do not forget to check their teeth.  Dental health should be checked annually.

Keep Pets Inside

Rule to keep in mind – if it is cold out for you, it is cold out for a pet.  If they are to be outside for any length of time, Please make sure that they have a full shelter to get out of the cold, rain, snow and wind.  They can freeze and get frostbite just as we can.  

Check your car/truck’s engine before starting

Many Cats, wildlife and other animals may try to keep warm inside a vehicle. Engines are nice and warm right after you come home and park.  Sometimes clapping your hands and speaking loudly may scare an animal away.  If you can, open your hood and inspect the inside before starting.  

Increase the calories

If your pet will be spending alot of time outside, you may want to increase food.  Keeping warm takes added energy.  

Keep Pets away from any puddles

Puddles may contain antifreeze.  It is lethal to pets and humans.  Animals can be attracted to it because it is sweet.  Clean thoroughly if you spill.  

Check paws

Check paws daily for chapped and cracked paw pads.  Use Bag Balm to keep soft.

Use a Sweater

Short coated dogs may get cold very fast.  Consider buying a coat or sweater to help.  Boots may be hard for them to get used to but may also be a good idea. 

Wipe Paws

Wipe paws, feet and legs after each walk.  They may pick up deicers, salt, antifreeze or other chemicals while walking.  You would want to clean that off before your pet has time to lick off. 

Avoid all Ice on Lakes/Ponds

Unless your know for SURE that the ice is completely solid and 6 or more inches thick with temperatures below freezing consistently for at least 3 or more weeks, do not even chance your life or your pets life.  

Be Prepared

Be Prepared for severe weather, blizzards & power outages.  Have a plan in place that includes pets if you must leave your home.  Never leave your pets, even if people say you will be back in a little while, too many times, something happens and that little while may be a day or longer.  Also have extra food and water for you and your pets.  Check out our Disaster Planning for You and Your pets for more Helpful ideas.  

Help Your Neighborhood Stray

Help any cats or dogs that may be abandoned in your neighborhood.  Many pets are left behind with owners hoping some kind person will take them in.  Or that abandoned female cat, has kittens and now there are feral kittens in the neighborhood.  If you can contact organizations to help trap them, they can help the animals find homes.  If feral, there are organizations that will trap them, make sure they are healthy, spay and neuter them and find barn homes for them or if you will help feed and make them a shelter, they can be returned to live out their life without having more kittens.  

Speak Out if you see a Pet in the Cold

If you see a pet consistently kept out in the cold, rain, snow.  Say something to your local animal control.  Document everything you see, dates, times, if you see anyone giving fresh water or food.  It could mean life or death to that pet.

Protect Horses Too

Horses and other livestock need shelter as well.  They need to be able to get out of the cold, rain, snow and wind.  To keep warm, they also need extra food.  Water needs to be checked often so that it is not frozen.  

Make February Reservations Now

If you have any FEBRUARY dates you will be away, especially for the February School vacation, please make your reservations NOW to ensure availability. 

 

If you adopt a puppy or dog this month

CONGRATULATIONS !!  Register online ASAP to set up Dog Walking/Mid Day Let Out so they have a break while you are at work and you will be ready when you may need a pet care visit anytime in the future.

 

If you adopt a kitten or cat this month

CONGRATULATIONS !!  Register online ASAP to set up Feline Fun Time, we can take care of the litter box and give then one on one attention while you are at work, plus you will be ready when you may need a pet care visit anytime in the future.

Pets in Need – How Can You Help

Pets in Need

How can you help

*

 Author, Dorinne Whynott, Owner of Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

 

When you think of pets in need, most people think of humane societies, humane shelters and rescues.  There certainly are many pets in need in those facilities and organizations.  However, adopting a pet is not the only way you can help pets in need.  There are lots of ways you can help these organizations and more.

 

Here is how –

 

ADOPT –

This is always a way to help a pet in need.  If you are ready to add a new furry love to your family, by all means adopt.  The added love in your home will be well worth it.  But there are many things you can do besides adopting.

 

FOSTER –

Here is a way to help many pets.  I foster orphaned kittens for a shelter.  These kittens could be orphaned and still nursing, they could be too young to vaccinate and therefore can not go into a shelter where they would be susceptible to many diseases.  If you have room and time to care for an orphan kitten or puppy, it is rewarding.  Many organizations also need help with pregnant moms (cats and dogs).  The shelter is not a place for a pregnant mom, too much going on, too stressful, etc.  They need a quiet, warm home where they can finish their pregnancy, deliver their babies and care for their babies until they are ready to be adopted.

 

DONATE MONEY –

Every organization can make your dollar stretch to help the animals in their care.  This is always a great way to help your local organization.

 

TRAIN –

If you know how to train the basics, many shelters would love to have the dogs trained in basic – sit, down, come, stay.  Dogs that are trained are always a plus to be adopted.

 

SOCIALIZE –

All the cats and dogs need love and attention.  Maybe you can just sit and give them attention.  The animals need it. Sitting and brushing or petting an animal not only de-stresses that animal but also de-stresses YOU.   Many shelters have socialization programs.

 

DONATE NEEDED ITEMS –

Paper Towels (they go through cases)

Trash bags

Kitty Litter (call the organization to find out if they use a certain kind, many organizations like to use one kind for consistency for the cats.)

Food – dog, cat, kitten, puppy, dry or canned.  This is always in need.  (Call the organization to find out if they use a certain kind, many organizations like to use one kind for consistency for the pets.)

Towels, blankets, sheets (new or used)

Newspaper

Small boxes (That cans are packed in.  They can be used as litter boxes)

Toys

Treats

Brushes and other grooming items

Stainless steel bowls

Shelving Units (heavy duty on wheels for storage)

Pets as Gifts – Is it a Good Idea

Author, Dorinne Whynott, Owner of Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

You have a pet lover on your gift list and thought a new pet would be the perfect gift.

Please think long and hard before giving a living breathing animal as a gift. Pets as gifts require many things to consider.

 

The times that many people think of giving a pet as a gift are Birthdays, Easter, Christmas and after a person has lost a beloved pet. Weeks and months after a pet is given at these times is also the times these pets may be given up. If not given up, the pets may enjoy a wonderful life but the joy of choosing one’s own pet was not given.

 

The one thing I have witnessed over and over again in all the years that I have been in animal welfare is when an animal chooses a person, the bond is special. If you have ever been chosen by a pet, you know what I mean.

 

Keep in mind – 

  • Adding a pet to a family is a very personal choice.
  • Not every pet is right for every family
  • Not every family is right for every pet
  • What you may think is the perfect pet maybe the last thing the person receiving would actually get for themselves.
  • A person may prefer to add a dog instead of getting another cat or may decide to add a cat instead of another dog.
  • Maybe they prefer a male over a female or the other way around.
  • Maybe they absolutely love black but would never consider another black pet because it reminds them of the one they lost and it would be too painful.

 

If there was a loss of a pet, and they are grieving, many people think getting another pet to replace that pet will help.  Keep in mind, a pet that was deeply loved can never be replaced. Grieving is a very individualized thing.  Some people do well with adding a pet soon after that loss, some take much longer. It took me 5 years after losing my Siberian Husky before I was ready for another dog. If you bring a pet to a grieving person who may not be ready, you may add to that grieving if they must give up the new pet as well.

 

Adding a pet to a family is a decision that is a long term decision. Dogs and cats can live 15-20 years or more. Large bird breeds can live upwards of 50 years and it is advised to put them in your will and trust (all pets should be as well).

 

Then there is the financial aspect of owning pets. In the first year, expenses can run into $1000-2000 with pet food, vaccines, spay/neuter, etc.  If it is a pet that has medical issues that are not known when acquired, it could be higher.

 

A pet as a present will require a lot of time and money from the person that will be receiving the pet. Can they handle this?  Do they want to?  There is a lot to consider and if this will be a surprise, you may think you know all the answers but maybe the reason this person has not gone out to get a new pet is because it is not the right time.

 

So, should you throw this idea out the window?  Not necessarily.  Here are some ideas on giving the gift of a pet without actually giving a pet. This way, when the recipient is ready, all they have to do is choose.

 

You can make up a basket or fill a decorated box with everything they need.  Or fill a crate or pet carrier. Fill with everything on our list (lucky person and pet) or choose just a few.

 

Ideas For Dogs – 

  • A note letting the person know that when they are ready you will be happy to take them to choose their pet
  • A note stating that you will pay for the pet of their choice
  • Pet Care Gift Certificate for mid day let out for a puppy while they are at work or dog walking for their new dog or whenever they may need a pet care visit at their home from a professional pet sitting company (Professional Pet Sitting Etc has gift certificates in any amount)
  • Pooper Scooper
  • Pet waste bags and carrier
  • Leashes, collars, harness
  • Pet Identification
  • Pet Video Camera
  • Pet GPS
  • Microchipping
  • Training Gift Certificate
  • Training/behavior books and videos
  • Pet Insurance
  • Animal Hospital Gift Certificate
  • Care Credit information (this is a special line of credit to be used for your pet whenever it is needed.  This can be used for regular or unexpected medical, emergencies, etc.  Depending on the amount, you could have up to 6 months interest free to pay off the balance. Bonus is that this can also be used for human medical and dental as well!)
  • Pet Food (enough for a few days, a week, a month)
  • Grooming Gift Certificate
  • Brushes, combs
  • Nail Clippers
  • Toys of all sorts
  • Treats
  • Beds, blankets

 

Ideas For Cats – 

  • A note letting the person know that when they are ready you will be happy to take them to choose their pet
  • A note stating that you will pay for the pet of their choice
  • Pet Care Gift Certificate for Litter box cleaning while they are at work or whenever they may need a pet care visit at their home from a professional pet sitting company (Professional Pet Sitting Etc has gift certificates in any amount)
  • Litter Scoops
  • Litterboxes (at least two)
  • Leashes, collars, harness
  • Pet Identification
  • Pet Video Camera
  • Pet GPS
  • Microchipping
  • Training/behavior books and videos
  • Pet Insurance
  • Animal Hospital Gift Certificate
  • Care Credit information (this is a special line of credit to be used for your pet whenever it is needed. This can be used for regular or unexpected medical, emergencies, etc. Depending on the amount, you could have up to 6 months interest free to pay off the balance.  Bonus is that this can also be used for human medical and dental as well!)
  • Pet Food (enough for a few days, a week, a month)
  • Grooming Gift Certificate
  • Brushes, combs
  • Scratching posts and trees of all sizes
  • Nail Clippers
  • Toys of all sorts (especially laser and feather toys)
  • Treats
  • Beds, blankets

 

If you are planning on giving another type of pet such as a bird, hamster, guinea pig, rabbit, duckling, chick, etc.  Please do ALOT of research.  There are Facebook groups for all of these pets and more.  Ask questions on what they would love as a gift for complete care for the type of pet you are considering.

 

If your friend rents, please check and find out what is allowed.  If you are thinking of a German Shepherd puppy and the rental agreement only allows cats and dogs under 25 pounds, that will be a bit disappointing.

List of Pet Friendly Rentals

 

If you are thinking of a horse, pony, ducks, chickens, goats, etc. You may need to check with the city your friend lives in to make sure that their home is zoned for such animals. Also, these are animals that will need a building for them to be housed in. You may need to do further research for housing plans, costs and make sure there is room and zoning for that as well. Ducks and chickens may also be in danger of wildlife in the area, so please take that into consideration.

 

What are some ideas that you can give to a Pet Lover without giving an actual Pet?

 

If they already have pets –

  • Pet Care Gift Certificates – they can always use help with pet care if they go out to dinner and need a supper visit or a dog walk when they are gone all day(Professional Pet Sitting Etc has gift certificates in any amount)
  • Animal Hospital Gift Certificate
  • Really anything on the above two lists will work

If they do not have any pets and a new pet is not right at this time – 

  • Donate to a local shelter or animal organization in the person’s name
  • Donate to a local shelter or animal organization in the person’s pet’s name

Happy Gift Giving !!

Hiking with Your Dog

DSC_0109

Walking

the

Trails

 

Author, Noelle Dunn, for Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

Who does not enjoy fresh air, exercise and time with their four legged pal? Going on a walk with your pet is one of the best experiences you can have. Hiking in the mountains or walking wooded trails can be even better!

However, there are some tips and precautions one must take when thinking about taking your pet on a hike. Taking your pet with you on a hike is a rather large responsibility and not all dogs are ready nor meant to hike.

Below are some tips to consider if you are thinking about taking Fido out with you on your next hike.

First things first:

  • Obedience.While you may love your pup, how obedient is he? Does he get easily distracted? Does he return immediately when called?
  • Health. How is your pet’s health and stamina? Does your pet take medications? Visit with your vet first to ensure your pet is up for hikes.
  • Rules. Verify well before your arrival, if the area you are considering for that hike is pet friendly. Can Fido come? If so, obtain the rules and regulations before venturing out.
  • Location. Please verify the area is suitable for your pet. Avoid rocky, tough terrain as it may not be suitable for Fido’s paws.  What creatures might your pet be exposed to on the hike?  Is he trained to handle encounters with snakes? Bears?

Once you have all of your ducks in a row time to prepare for the hike. Below is a checklist of some important items to square away and carry with you on that hike:

  • Bring a leash and collar. While your pup may be well behaved and trained, the leash is a good idea for their protection – especially in unknown territory. There will be so many new smells and sights for your pet!  It can be overwhelming and the urge to stray might be possible for even the most obedient of dogs.
  • Bring plenty of water and a bowl. You need to ensure Fido has plenty of water to stay hydrated, especially during the summer months when heat and exercise can potentially lead to heat exhaustion.
  • Plastic bags. You must pick up after your pet.
  • First aid. Make sure you have essential first aid care in the event Fido is hurt.  You should have a first aid kit on hand at home even if you aren’t thinking about hiking.
  • ID. Ensure your pets is micro-chipped and his collar has an up to date ID with your cellphone number on it your home number will not help you if you are out in the woods with your dog). Also, ensure you have a recent, clear full-bodied photo of your pet with you.  In the event your pet does get lost, all of these will improve your chances of being reunited with your pet.

Now that you are prepped and packed, you are ready to go! Enjoy a hike with your best friend! Remember to respect all wildlife you encounter, keep Fido safe and have fun!

FREE Pets, Are They Safe

image

.

All Pets Have Value, 

All Pets’ Lives Matter,

Keep Them Safe,

They are Counting On You

.

 

Author, Dorinne Whynott, Owner of Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

 

How can you keep your pets safe if you must find them a home?

Let’s find out.

FREE pets are advertised in the newspaper, on Craigslist, on Facebook and various places online.  People are hoping to find good safe loving homes for their pets but is a free pet really going to a loving home?

When I worked at the Humane Society, we always told people to never give a pet for FREE.  People who are willing to pay for an animal are generally willing to take good care of them.

There is always the exception to the rule, however, in most cases, placing a cost value on a pet makes it more likely that a person will think before buying/adopting that pet.  In many situations, if they must get rid of the pet,  they may think twice because of the money spent already for that pet.  Where as a free pet, already has no cost value, so if the person has no emotional attachment to the pet, they also do not have a money value on the pet.  Making it easier to get rid of.

When you advertise a Free pet, sometimes people will grab the pet before someone else does without putting much thought into their living situation, cost in medical care, cost in food, time involved in caring for the pet (scooping litter, taking for a walk in all kinds of weather, picking up dog waste, and more).  Many times people do not know what to ask when getting a pet or what to ask when re-homing a pet (click on both for lots of ideas and suggestions). Many times free pets may not be up to date on vaccines or healthy.

There are many stories of free pets who were found to be very ill after someone took them.  Those free pets cost hundreds and in a few cases thousands in just the first few months.

What other things do Free pets have to worry about?  The people who make a living or a hobby acquiring free pets.  These people are VERY good at what they do to convince you your pet is going to the best home.  They look like wonderful people.  People who could be your neighbor.  They may even let you do a home visit.  They may bring their children.  As your pet leaves, you will believe that they are going to a great home.

They are that convincing.  

So here are a few kinds of BAD people who are looking for YOUR Free pets.

They are looking in newspapers, craigslist,  facebook and online –

 

BEWARE OF THESE PEOPLE, they all exist in New Hampshire.  

REMEMBER, they are good at what they do –

  • Pet Flipper
    • They look for FREE pets and turn around and sell them to anyone who will buy them for a profit
  • Cultists – 
    • they are looking for FREE pets to use in animal sacrifices
  • Animal Abuser 
    • they take FREE pets because they like to kill them (or worse, torture) or use them as target practice
  • Puppy/Kitten Mill  
    • Take FREE pets that look purebred and breed  in high quantity for money.  They look for pets not spayed/neutered
  • Dog Bait 
    • Take FREE pets and give them to their dogs to rip up because they find it fun or use pets to train dogs for fighting
  • Experiment Labs
    • people who make money finding animals to sell to labs for experimentation.  Many years ago in New England, unclaimed animals would go to labs.  Even today, some labs pay for test animals. Many do breed their own animals for this.
    • Did you know that the animals that are used in schools for biology are obtained by looking for FREE pets?  We are talking about classes that dissect cats or other pets.  The companies that sell to the schools buy from people who are paid per pound, so they need many. When I was appalled that Nashua High was requiring students to dissect cats that looked like everyone’s pet at home, I started doing research and this is what I found.
  • Fake Rescue
  • Animal Hoarder
    • Takes on FREE pets because they feel the pets need them,  Many times they love the pets but do not have the money to care and feed the numbers.  Pets end up living in filthy conditions and are not medically cared for.  This usually gets worse over time until authorities step in.
  • Pet Food
    • These people look for FREE pets to feed to snakes, lizards and other exotics.
  • Backyard Breeder
    • Want FREE pets to use for breeding to make money.  Many times they are looking for what looks like purebreds.  They often do not do vaccines, etc.  These people are on a much smaller scale than the above Mills.
  • Bestiality/Fetishists  –
    • Unfortunately it does exist in NH and people are working on making this illegal.  FREE animals used for many sexual reasons.

All of the above troll and search for FREE pets.  They are very good at their jobs and they will convince you that your FREE pet will be going to a loving home.

You say, but we will know if someone is trolling because they will be asking for lots of animals….WRONG!  They wil continually make new profiles in different names just so you do NOT know how many pets they are getting on Facebook.  On CL, they just answer the ads from different Unsuscepting people.

It was brought to my attention that a local purebred rescue would help to re-home your pet. You would keep your pet with you, they would be happy to help refer interested people to you for your pet in their referral program but the pet would need to be FREE, here is what they required –

Referral Program

Due to our limited resources at this time most of our work is done through referrals, matching people looking for dogs with people needing to place dogs.

Those who participate in this program do so with the understanding that we are unable to investigate either party. Once we send information about dogs to potential adopters it is up to you to contact the current owners, who will then interview you.

There is no fee (FREE) for any dog in the referral program, and all arrangements for transfer of ownership are between the current and new owners.

 

This is NOT a good thing for a rescue to require a pet to be FREE.  The owner must be VERY good at interviewing, do a vet check, do a home check, make an application and make an agreement.  I would still recommend doing all of that but by putting a re-homing fee on the pet, especially a purebred, most of the bad people mentioned above will be out of the picture.  By this rescue requiring the pet to be FREE and not taking any responsibility, they are not helping keep those pets safe.

So, does this mean that ALL people who are looking for FREE pets are bad – of course NOT.  But because the above bad people are so convincing, it is very hard for anyone to figure out who is good from who is bad.

So, what are some ways to keep your pets as safe as possible.  Unfortunately, there is no 100% guarantee –

Here are FOUR things that will help –

  • First place a price for re-homing your pet. 
    • Kittens and cats – 50 – 100+
    • Puppies and dogs – 100 – 200+
    • Purebreds, dogs, cats – 100 – 400+
    • Rabbits, Guinea pigs – 25 -100+
      • Purebreds may go for more
    • Birds – 50- 800+
      • Large exotic birds may go for any price
    • The above prices are suggestions.  these are for pets that have been checked by a veterinarian and found to be healthy, up to date on all vaccinations, free of parasites, dogs are heartworm free, and all that are old enough should be spayed/neutered.
    • Remember that this is for the safety of your pet to find a loving home.  This is not for making a big profit.  Many people do a bit of research.  Maybe you have registration papers, which if the pet is spayed/neutered, it is just a nice thing for the new owners to have but proof that your pet is a purebred with lineage. Some people base price on the cost of vet check, vaccines, etc.
  • Then, ask TONS of questions, vet check, home check.
  • Have them fill out an Application
  • Have them sign an agreement with you

If you do the above things, chances are the home will be okay.  Again, it is not a 100% guarantee.  If all of this gives you anxiety, I totally empathize with you.  Having the life of your pet in your hands is a daunting task.

The above list of licensed shelters and rescues can help.  We are very fortunate to have many amazing organizations helping pets in New Hampshire.  Go visit a few.  Ask them questions.  What are there policies?  Do they keep animals until they find homes?  Go on their website, read everything there. I would avoid any person or organization that want you to give your pet away for FREE.  It just puts pets in a possibly unsafe path.

Whatever your decision, to bring to a shelter or to find a home yourself, you  need to be happy with your decision.  Your Pet’s Life depends on what you decide and you need to live with it.

All of your hard work is worth it for your pet’s safety & happiness.

Thank you for caring so much.
