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

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 !!

Christmas – December Pet Tips

Pet Tips For Christmas December

.

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

 

Some easy to make cat toys for Christmas –

  • Cut holes in a plastic water bottle so that kibble is dispensed when the cat rolls the bottle around. Use sand paper to smooth any sharp edges and rinse well then dry before using.
  • Tie fabric strips to a long stick and run it across the floor. Be careful to not let kitties eat any loose strings
  • Take an old sock and put catnip and a few pieces of crumpled cellophane inside. Knot it up for your cat to wrestle with or carry around.
  • For the prey minded cats who love to chase, toss aluminum (not used on any food) foil balls down stairs or along your floor. A crumpled piece of paper will work, too!
  • Here are more ideas – http://www.pinterest.com/lacey_pentland/diy-homemade-cat-toys/

 

 

Some easy to make dog toys for Christmas –

  • Wrap a water bottle in a t-shirt, becomes a crinkle chew toy
  • Another crinkle toy, take a water bottle and put in a sock
  • For a tennis ball treat puzzle, cut a hole in a tennis ball big enough for kibble or small treats, insert inside and as the ball rolls around the food will fall out
  • Braided Tug Toy – take Old t-shirts cut into strips can be braided tightly, knot each end
  • Here are more ideas – http://www.pinterest.com/brumzoo/diy-pet-toys/

 

 

Pet Tip #1 –

Securely anchor the tree to the wall with fishing line, to prevent playful curious pets from tipping or knocking it over

 

Pet Tip #2 –

Skip the tinsel,  Kitties can not resist the sparkly fun toy but if ingested could lead to obstruction, vomiting, surgery & can be fatal.

 

Pet Tip #3 –

Keep pets away from wrapping paper, string & ribbons.  They could pose health hazards, blockage and more

 

Pet Tip #4 –

Christmas tree water is not for pets to drink.  It may contain chemicals, flame retardants and insecticides leaking from the treated trees.

 

Pet Tip #5 –

Clean up tree needles.  They can be toxic and cause mouth and stomach irritation.

 

Pet Tip #6 –

Angel hair, flocking and artificial snow are mildly toxic, large amounts will cause blockages

 

Pet Tip #7 –

Tree preservatives for the water are often sugar based and inviting to pets, another reason to keep pets away

 

Pet Tip #8 –

To keep pets away from the tree, try using citrus sprays.  Most pets do not like the smell.

 

Pet Tip #9 –

Keep wires taped securely and away from pets.  No dangling wires enticing them to be chewed, causing burns or worse.

 

Pet Tip #10 –

Keep breakable ornaments out of reach from playful paws.  Glass fragments and metal hangers can be a choking hazard and more

 

Pet Tip #11 –

Holiday potpourri can smell delicious to pets but may cause them to become very ill or worse

 

Pet Tip #12 –

Some snow globes contain antifreeze which is sweet tasting to pets.  If knocked over and broken, pets may be attracted to ingesting which can be fatal

 

 Medications

As always keep medications out of pets reach.  Give them a place to go from all the noise and bustle of the holidays.

 

Make Reservations Early

Make your reservation Now for your January pet care reservation.  Book all pet care reservations as early as you possibly can to ensure you will be all set.

 

Adopt

If you will be adding a new furry member to your family, consider doing it at least 2 or more weeks before the busy Thanksgiving Holidays.  It is hard on new pets in a new home with losts of hustle and bustle.

If you adopt a puppy or dog this month – CONGRATULATIONS !!  Register online ASAP to set up 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.

 

Happiest of Holidays to you and your pets

from all of us, at

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.

Flea and Tick Borne Diseases

Flea and Tick

Borne Diseases

You Need to Be Aware of!

Author, Joelle Schuller, for Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

 

Do you protect your pet against fleas and ticks?  If not, read on to learn the dangers associated with flea and tick infestation!  Your pet should be some type of flea and tick prevention plan; it could save his life!

 

First, let’s start with some tips to keep your pet free of fleas and ticks!

  • Proper grooming is essential. Bathing and brushing your dog regularly will help keep infestation at bay.  Those pests don’t thrive in soap and water.
  • Keep an eye on your pet especially if he spends a lot of time out of doors. Check his fur each time he comes in.  A quick brush before he comes in the door is a great option.  The sooner you detect the pests, the less likely those pests are to multiply!
  • An unhealthy dog is more susceptible to being preyed upon by fleas and ticks. Keep your dog healthy with a proper diet and exercise regime, as well as regular  visits to the vet.
  • Keep your lawn and shrubs well maintained. Fleas and ticks love to hang around tall grass and wooded areas!
  • Wash linens and vacuum any carpets and upholstery that your pet has access too. Empty the vacuum directly after each use and take the debris to the outside trash bin so if there are any fleas or ticks, they are not left inside!
  • Talk to the vet about the best prevention plan for your pet. If you are against medicating your pet, discuss alternative/holistic methods with your vet.

Diseases and or ailments caused by fleas:

 

Tapeworm: causes mild, moderate or severe weight loss, itching/ hot spots

Flea Borne Spotted Fever: lethargy, fatigue, vomiting

Flea Allergy Dermatitis: itching, and chewing of skin and paws which leads to painful and unsightly hot spots

Plague: fever, swollen glands, anorexia due to decreased appetite.

 

 

Some ailments and diseases caused by ticks:

 

Lyme Borreliosis: lethargy, fever, lameness, loss of appetite

Anaplasmosis:  acute fever and severely compromised immune system

September Pet Care Tips

Cat

Ricky enjoying a warn autumn day

As a Pet Care Professional since 1978,

I have learned a few Pet Care Tips

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

 

Having been in the animal field all 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 September

 

 

  • Beware of School Supplies – It’s back-to-school time, if you have been school shopping, you may have fun items like glue sticks, pencils and magic markers. These items are considered “low toxicity” to pets and children.  This means they’re unlikely to cause serious problems unless large amounts are ingested. However, since gastrointestinal upset and blockages certainly are possible, be sure your children keep their school supplies out of paw’s reach and younger siblings. 
  • Lonely Pets – Also Back to school and back to work may mean that your pets, who have been used to your presence all day long are now spending long hours alone.  This may bring on depression for your pet.  Some pets may get destructive.  This is a time to think about a routine dog walking service to burn off excess energy that they are not getting now that they are alone.  For puppies and elderly pets, they will need that middle of the day potty break.  If you do have an elderly pet, getting them up and moving around can help with their circulatory system and help with arthritis.  
  • Call us today to ask about a routine Dog Walking/ Mid Day Let out package.  
     
  • Training tip: If you and your pooch haven’t been active outdoors in a while because of the summer heat, do some remedial recall training. Dogs, like people, get rusty on their skills if they aren’t using them. 
  • Toxic Mushrooms – Fall and spring and are mushroom seasons. While 99% of mushrooms have little or no toxicity, the 1% that are highly toxic can cause life-threatening problems in pets. Unfortunately, most of the highly toxic mushrooms are difficult to distinguish from the nontoxic ones, so the best way to keep pets from ingesting poisonous mushrooms is to keep them away from areas where any mushrooms are growing. Contact your veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center immediately if you witness your pet eating a wild mushroom. 
  • Keep Pets Inside – The cold weather months are just around the corner.  Protect your pets by keeping them inside and having a disaster plan in place for them in case you lose power for an extended period of time.
  • Make your reservation Now for your October pet care reservation.
  • If you adopt a puppy or dog this month CONGRATULATIONS !!  Register online ASAP to set up 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.

 

Happy Pet Owning !!

Cat Scratch Disease

Amanda thinks fleas are horrible Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

We Can Get

Cat Scratch Disease

from our cats!

.

.

 

  Author, Noelle Schueller, for Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

 

 

 

 

 

Did you know that Cat Scratch Disease is caused by the bacteria in flea feces?  I know you’re thinking “ewwww”.  We agree, but you need to be informed about this! This is transmitted to humans via a scratch or bite by an infected cat.

 

How Do Cats Get Cat Scratch Disease?

 

Fleas carried the Bartonella henselae bacteria, which happens to be the most common bacteria associated with Cat Scratch Disease.  When a cat gets fleas, fleas leave flea dirt on the cat.  When the cat scratches or chews on himself, the flea dirt gets under his claws.  A cat then transmits it to humans by biting or scratching, usually while playing.  The National Center for Infectious Disease reports that about 40% of all cats carry the bacteria associated with Cat Scratch Disease sometime in their lives.  The tricky part is that most cats that carry the bacteria never show any symptoms of the disease.  In addition, there is not one single test used to diagnose Cat Scratch Disease in Cats so ordinarily, a clear diagnosis is only sought after in cats that are seriously ill.  Antibiotics can be given to treat this disease in cats however, it’s not always effective.

 

Symptoms of Cat Scratch Disease in humans

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Skin irritations and/or bumps
  • Loss of Weight
  • Lethargy/Fatigue
  • Join pain

 

Preventing Cat Scratch Disease

  • Put in a place a flea prevention regime for your pet
  • Trim your cat’s nails
  • Wash any bites or scratches from your cat with soap and warm water
  • Keep your cat indoors
  • Avoid playing rough with your cat as this leads to biting and scratching
  • If you have an already compromised immune system, consult with your doctor before adopting a cat.

If you suspect your cat or one of your human family members may be infected by Cat Scratch Disease, seek prompt medical attention.

 

Did you find this article interesting?

Were you aware that your cat could infect you with this?

Of course, if your cats stays inside and is free of fleas, the likely of this happening is very small.

HELP, My Pet is Sick and I Have No Money!!! Financial Aid and Help

Merlin is not feeling well Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

Merlin is not feeling well
Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

 Financial Help,

.

Vaccine Clinic,

.

Spay/Neuter Clinics,

and More for Pet Owners

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

 The worst feeling is when you love your pet more than words can say and they become ill.  To make matters worse, there is medical help but it will cost more than you can afford.  I have been in the situation more than once but luckily, I did have resources and credit cards to take care of the high cost of helping my pets.  My heart goes out to those that are less fortunate than I.  The guilt of not being able to take care of one’s pet is a horrible experience.  I hope that anyone reading this has never been in that situation.  I wrote this to help if you are or if you know someone who is in need of help.

Heartbreaking Situation – a pet owner is unable to afford treatment and their sick or injured companion animal pays the price. If the owner is homeless, a veteran, elderly, disabled or on a fixed income, the cost of care may be too much. Perhaps they have been victimized by crime, property loss or a job layoff and are experiencing a temporary financial hardship or trauma in their life, making it too difficult to afford pet care. And some animals, brought to clinics by kind hearted people, don’t have an owner to pay for treatment. Whatever the situation, the fact remains the same: When sick or injured animals are unable to receive veterinary care, they suffer.

Here is a list of organizations that are set up to help.If you know of an organization not on this list, please contact me via email at Profpetsit@aol.com 

Keep in mind, that these organizations may require certain things from you.  They may need to know why you need help, may require financial proof, etc.  Please do not take this personally, they just want to help those in need and want to be able to stretch their funds the farthest.  Each organization is independent and has their own set of rules and guidelines. Therefore you will have to investigate each one separately to determine if you qualify for assistance:

DONATIONS to any of these organizations will help them continue their great work and help many more animals.

In these rough economic times, many pet owners are forced to abandon their beloved pet to the ASPCA, North Shore Animal League or other animal shelters due to the inability to pay for their basic food supply and care. There are over 50 million Americans who currently receive Food Stamps, many with dogs or cats, who simply cannot afford to feed their animals, and these cherished companions are dropped off at animal shelters where they will most likely be put to sleep. Many people are also forced to choose between feeding their pets or themselves. A recent New York Times article states that “animal shelters have reported a steep rise in the number of cats and dogs being surrendered as owners face unemployment, home foreclosures, evictions and other financial hardships.” As more families struggle with difficult choices like paying the rent or buying food, some have to choose between keeping their pet and putting food on the table.. Seven million pets are surrendered to shelters each year due to the inability of pet parents to pay for food, with four million of those pets put to sleep. The Pet Food Stamps program aims to eliminate the needless death of these loving pets and keep families together.

Pet Friendy Rentals in New Hampshire

Merlin Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

Apartments, Houses, Condos 

for Rent in NH that allow Pets

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

 

Since I have been in business since 1990 and worked, volunteered, fostered, rescued in the animal field all of my life, I have been asked numerous times if I knew of places to rent that allowed pets.  It can be extremely hard to find and for the many who were not so lucky, heart breaking to have to find a good home for their beloved pets.  I wanted to create an ongoing list of the wonderful building owners who are kind enough to offer pet loving owners the opportunity to keep their pets while they must rent a place to live.

It is these kind owners who are giving you the most valuable opportunity to keep your pets, so remember to be good responsible pet owners.  Why because these building owners are becoming less and less due to un-responsible pet owners in the past.

What is a good responsible pet owner?  Glad you asked.  Here are a few examples:

  1. Train your pets (cat, dog, etc).
    • Train Dogs to walk properly on a leash (no one wants a jumping, pulling, unruly dog as a neighbor)
    • do not let your dog bark all the time.  Train him to bark once to alert you and then quiet.  Make sure that your dog is not barking all day while you are at work.
  2. Make sure litterboxes are clean to alleviate odors and possible accidents on carpets, etc.
  3. Keep cats nails trimmed and provide scratching posts to alleviate scratching wood and walls
  4. crate destructive and anxiety pets to avoid any damage to rental
  5. Always pick up any pet waste and dispose properly
  6. Repair any damage that your pet does immediately to avoid more damage
  7. Make sure your pets are always up to date on all vaccines, parasite free and are healthy to avoid getting your neighbors pets sick
  8. Follow all animal laws in the state of NH and any rules by the landlord/association
  9. Neuters all pets.  Neutered pets not only help keep the pet population down, but are generally easier to train, get along better with other animals, usually less destructive, fight other animals less.
  10. If you have a problem with your pet, seek help and advice to alleviate the problem.

Here are some more Tips with renting when you won pets from the Humane Society of the US.
