Halloween is a very fun time for kids and adults alike....but might not be very fun for your pets. Follow some simple rules and common sense to keep your pet safe and happy. Keep all candy and chocolate up and away from pets....it can end up being a deadly mistake if a pet eats treats. Costumes.....make sure if you are going to dress up your pet that the costume is safe & fits well so it does not trap, strangle or hurt your pet. Maybe also put the pet in a safe room during the time you have trick or treaters....you do not want your pet to escape and you do not know if a costume scares your dog, they could bite, trying to protect you or out of fear. October 31 is a good time to keep all pets secure, safe and if possible, inside, especially black cats...it is sad to say they could fall prey to a not so nice human who has some not so nice Halloween plans for them...If you are planning a party at your house, maybe find a friend or a pet sitter who can care for your pet during the party. If you are going out and returning late have a pet sitter stop by to potty and play a little with your pet and then tuck them in, safe and sound for you. Well everyone have a great Halloween.....and remember....adopt!! If you cannot adopt then foster!! If you can not foster, then volunteer!!! If you can not volunteer then show your financial support to a local shelter...
