These household hazards could be dangerous to your pet

Many of the foods, plants, and products we encounter or use every day can actually be toxic to your pet’s health.

To help keep your furry friends safe and healthy, we’ve put together a list of common household items to keep away from your pet. These household hazards should be kept out of reach (or avoided altogether).

Walk for Animals registration is now open! 

On Saturday, May 6, join thousands of animal lovers and their pets to make more second chances possible for animals in need — one step at a time.

Walk for Animals is back at our new home, the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, to bring you and your pets even more fun, food, and chances to make a difference. Register and start fundraising today to start changing animals' lives.

Why routine preventative care for your pet is essential

Spring is quickly approaching, and now is the perfect time to restart your preventative treatment routine if you took a break over winter. Warmer months introduce parasites, fleas, and ticks back into the environment. 

Preventative care for your pet is critical to maintaining their overall health and avoiding unwanted and even life-threatening illness. Keep your pet happy and healthy by focusing on these three areas of preventative care.
