April showers bring May flowers.
Spring is filled with beautiful new growth: grass, shrubs, flowers, and even weeds. Okay, the weeds are usually pretty ugly, but regardless of looks many pets take this opportunity to graze on this new found growth. This can be extremely dangerous as many spring time plants - including rhododendron and azaleas - are highly toxic to pets and can be fatal.
If you are ever in doubt, please reference this comprehensive list of plants to stay away from.
Do you know what else April brings? Puppies and Kittens!! The season is here and in some ways is delightful, as there is an abundance of cuteness, but this is also an unfortunate time as the shelters become over-run causing an enormous strain on already tight resources. So, if you were considering adopting a new furry friend, now is the perfect time!
One Love Animal Rescue tries to take in as many animals as we have foster homes for so we can also quickly deplete our stocks of puppy and kitten food. Please consider making a donation off our Amazon wish list, which can be found here. We appreciate everyone's generosity in helping us continue our mission!
Not looking to adopt right now? Our biggest need is foster homes! Fostering orphaned kittens and puppies or mother cats with kittens is a life-saving, rewarding venture. Want to give bottle feeding a try? We also need feeders on hand for when the dire situation arises. Test the waters. Is your family thinking of adding a pet to your home? Or what a wonderful way to teach your children responsibility by fostering a pet.
