Pets 1/15/14

LACC has many wonderful animals available for adoption; Peony is a 6 year old Chihuahua.

Today's pet segment was about keeping our furry family members warm. During the cold winter days it is suggested that hay is used as an alternative to blankets for warmth. The hay absorbs the moisture and won't freeze like blankets or sweaters when they get wet. There are also outdoor heating pads, Lectro Kennel with wire covered chord, that warm pets in a kennel or covered patio.

As part of progressive changes happening at the shelter, veterinary care is now provided by a dedicated and full-time veterinarian. Dr. Shelly Liles evaluates all animals available for adoption. They receive a physical exam, deworming, and core vaccinations (FVRCP for cats, DAPP and Bordatella for dogs). PLUS a Rabies vaccination if they are over 12 weeks old (for cats and dogs less than 12 weeks old, a $10 Rabies voucher will be issued, to be used when they are old enough to receive the vaccine). Before leaving the shelter, each animal is microchipped and registered to the new owner (or the rescue group who pulls them). Meet the animals at the shelter from 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m, Monday through Friday. For more information on adopting, email
