Banquet Ticket Discount!

BANQUET TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE! We are getting ready for our Annual Fall Banquet and tickets are now on sale. 

 

This year, if you purchase your tickets before September 19, the tickets will cost $30 each instead of $40. After September 19, the price will return to the standard fee. Stop by LCHS to purchase your tickets today!




Barn Kitties Needing Homes!

LCHS often has barn kitties available for appropriate barn homes. Barn kitties may be friendly but have issues that make them unable to live in indoor homes (declawed cats will not be sent as barn kitties) or may be shy and nervous around people. All kitties sent into barn homes will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated for rabies (if old enough), vaccinated for distemper, and given preventative treatment for ear mites or worms. There is no fee to adopt a barn kitty but barn homes must provide food and water for the cats every day and offer an indoor shelter for cats to escape the elements.

If you would like to adopt a barn kitty, please call us at 715-536-3459 or email manager@furrypets.com. If we do not have a barn kitty at the time you contact us, we can put you on a waiting list for future barn kitties.

ID Tags are Vital!

 

Top 5 Reasons to Protect Your Pets with External Identification Tags

By PawNews On April 15, 2013 ·

The ASPCA did a major study on pet ID tags and found that though 80% of pet parents believe that external identification is important, only 33% report actually putting tags on their pets.  What’s going on?  If you aren’t aware of why it is SO important to have an external ID on your pet…read on…

1.    1 in 3 pets will become lost in their lifetime (American Humane Association) and without proper identification, 90% of pets never make it back home (Found Animals Foundation)

Yes...even indoor kitties need external ID tags to keep them safe.

2.   Even if you have a strictly “indoor” pet…disasters, accidents and all sorts of unforeseen events will happen–it only takes one time. With less than 2% of cats and 20% of dogs coming back home safely…is it worth the risk?

3.   Anyone can read an external ID tag. Even if your pet is microchipped, they must be taken to a shelter or veterinarian to be scanned, and not all microchips can be read by all scanners. However, some new cutting-edge external ID tags, like PetHub QR ID tags even have multiple ways they can help pets get home and link to online profiles that can be changed at any time.

4.  Many people won’t pick up an animal without a collar on. They think “that’s a stray dog or feral cat.” But an animal with a collar & external ID tag…that’s a pet, someone’s family member, and folks are much more likely to stop and try to help the animal get home.

5.  Style, baby.  There are literally hundreds of styles of tags, in a wide range of prices, out there to fit you and your pet’s personality.  From princess to sports dog and from hipster to goof…there’s a fabulous ID tag out there for every pet & budget.




Firework Safety for Pets

Did you know July 5th is the busiest day of the year at most shelters? Fireworks terrify many animals, even normally calm pets.

Keep your pets safe. Keep them at home, indoors wtih no possible escape routes through windows or doors. We also recommend playing soft music or leaving a television set playing in the background.

If you are on vacation with your pet, make sure you have your pet secured in a safe area. Confirm that your pet's microchip is registered and you have an identification tag on your pet. In a pinch, purchase a collar from The Dollar Tree and write your phone number on it with a permanent marker.




CLOSED JULY 3 & 4

LCHS will be closed Sunday, July 3 and Monday, July 4. We will resume our normal business hours on Tuesday, July 5. If you have an animal related emergency during this time, please call the local Sheriff's Department at 715-536-6272. 




Successful Kid's Club Event

We would like to thank Steve & Kimberly for the wonderful Kid's Club Event last Saturday! Steve & Kimberly are exotic animal experts and enjoy sharing their passion with others. Their program introduced the kids to a variety of frogs, a newt, and a lungfish. They also provided a ton of educatinoal information about taking care of the animals, as well as information about how to save the creatures in the wild. Thank you, Steve & Kimberly! Everyone had a great time! 




Surrenders

We are asking anyone considering surrendering their pet to please call LCHS in advance. Our cat kennels are almost overflowing and any advance notice about a pet being surrendered is appreciated.

Cold Weather Tips for Pets

Cold weather is as difficult for animals as it is for people. When the weather is below freezing, the Lincoln County Humane Society highly recommends keeping your pets indoors. Being outdoors in freezing temperatures is a huge health risk to pets, and causes severe stress.

But if you must keep your pets outdoors, please follow these recommendations to help keep them safe and comfortable.

Feeding:

1.    Feed high quality foods with essential fatty acids to help outdoor dogs and cats maintain a thick coat of fur in the winter. Some veterinarians even recommend adding canola oil, soybean oil, or butter or fish oils directly to the dry food a pet receives. Check with your local veterinarian to see what’s safe and most beneficial to your pet.

2.    Increase food supply, especially protein, to help keep a healthy weight. If your pet is overweight, this is not recommended.

3.    Provide a heated water bowl for pets. Eating snow is not enough to prevent dehydration and it will cause hypothermia more quickly because it drops your pet’s body temperature.

4.    Don’t use metal bowls for food or water because your pet’s tongue may stick to the metal.

5.    Check frequently to make sure the water and food aren’t frozen.

Bedding:

1.    Make sure all pets, but especially, senior or arthritic pets have thick beds to in a warm area to keep their joints from hurting more.

2.    Keep beds off of concrete or the floor. 

3.    Use straw for bedding instead of towels, blankets, and newspaper which retain cold and moisture.

4.    Make sure your pet has an insulated house. It should be large enough for the animal to stand and turn but not too large or it won’t help conserve body heat.

5.    The pet’s house should be kept a few inches off the ground and covered with straw. The opening should be facing away from the wind and there should be a plastic cover on the door.

General:

1.    Make sure your pet’s fur is free of matts and burrs. Matted fur won’t protect as well from the cold.

2.    Don’t use regular road salt near your pet, make sure to have a pet safe variety to prevent injury and irritation on delicate paw pads.
