Pet costumes at Halloween, Christmas and other holidays are one of the latest fads. Who can resist dressing up a pet in those cute little witch capes or reindeer antlers?

Before you give in to this trend, make sure your pet can move freely and won't stumble over a costume that hangs to the ground. And never tie anything around his neck that can choke him. Let your pet be the judge. If he struggles and is uncomfortable, then maybe it would be best to let him stay dressed as a Corgi rather than a ghost!

Before you give in to those gorgeous, pleading eyes and feed your pet that Halloween candy bar, be aware of the harmful and even deadly consequences of feeding "people" food to any companion animal.

One way to reduce this temptation is to feed your pet before guests arrive, so your pet will be less likely to beg and steal food. Tell your guests of the house rules regarding your pet, such as not feeding him scraps from the table. Also, if your guests smoke, be extra vigilant and keep nicotine and alcohol out of your pet's reach. These can be highly toxic — even deadly!

Chocolate — especially baking chocolate — can actually kill your dog, so keep all such goodies well out of reach. Chocolate can affect the nervous system and cause urinary system and heart muscle damage in your pet.

Animals can get stressed with the hustle and bustle of holiday guests and trick-or-treaters. Therefore, it’s best to simply keep your pets indoors and provide them with a safe, quiet, escape-proof room where they can get away from the energy and excitement. Remember to provide plenty of food and water, and let your pet catch up on some Z’s!

As your holiday visitors come and go, or as trick-or-treaters come to your door, there will be too many opportunities for your pets to slip out unnoticed. Make sure that your pets always wear current identification tags, consider having your pets microchipped if you haven’t already – and watch the door!

Follow these tips, and your pets will have just as much fun as you and your kids this Halloween! Be sure to visit our holiday tips page for more helpful advice to help you and your pets with some of the other upcoming holidays. 


See ya at the party!!!

 (message from Otis's Mom)
 Everything is going great. Otis had a little anxiety the first day and chewed the door frame but I got that sour apple spray and today when I got home he didn't seem to have touched it again. Also when I leave he doesn't bark long anymore, which was my main concern being in an apartment. He's just such a good dog.
  I think he has settled in quickly and is a great fit! I found out that my apartment is getting a dog park so I'm pretty excited about that.

(message from Rosie's forever family)
Minnie (we are calling her Rosie now) saw our vet yesterday. Everyone in the place fell in love with her, of course. We can’t thank you enough for our new pup. We are so thankful to have her and she has brought us so much joy!

and the last DREAM adoption for the month was Watson. MOMMY did the home visit and has become
great friends with his Mommy, Miss Martha who is now a volunteer and soon to be foster Mom.


"Dr Watson"
Rescued: 09/25/14
Status: Adopted 09/29/14

(message from Dr Watson's Mommy) 
Dr Watson is such a good boy. I can't believe our good luck w/ him. He hasn't pee'd or pooped in the house even once. He comes when I call him. He's affectionate & loving. He walks on a leash like a show dog.  And understands when I say, "no".  At first he attached himself to my husband, but now he is my shadow. Dr Watson & Sushi are always together. The boston terrier, Fenny, is in her own world most of the time anyway. But it's almost like Sushi has been showing him the ropes on how to be a part of our family. He was absolutely perfect on the trip to Ark. I am truly amazed.   I wish everyone could know how wonderful a dachshund adoption could be!  Dr Watson & I are looking forward to participating in a DREAM function on this side of town.
