Hot Days, Cool Treats!

As the temperatures rise, it can be a challenge for pets and their people to stay cool. Of course, there’s always ice cream! While some dogs do just fine with their people’s sweet treat, why not try one of the suggestions below to avoid tummy troubles all together!

For the canine in your life, try Frosty Paws (available in vanilla or peanut butter) or Yoghund (available in apple cheddar or papaya peanut butter)! Found in most local grocer’s freezer sections, these treats come in packages of four for less than $5.00! It’s fun watching your pal get to the bottom of the cup!

Cats also love a cool treat: Try freezing ice-cube size portions of their favorite wet food! Or, drop a few ice cubes in their water dish!

Let’s Take the Dog Out in Monmouth County!

Let’s Take the Dog Out!

Summertime at the shore means one thing: OUTDOORS! In Monmouth County, there are a bunch of dog-friendly places for dogs and their people to enjoy together!

The off-leash dog park at Thompson Park in Lincroft is a great option for pups who like to run! There are “large dog” and “small dog” areas and water fountains when your pet needs a drink. Pros: great for dogs who like to play with others; open every day from 8am to dusk; easy waste disposal! Cons: not enough shade (so not good on a very hot day); can be a little muddy and buggy after a good rain 🙁 [click to continue…]

Thinking Spring! A Minty Treat For Your Special Pup

A Minty Treat recipe For Your Special Pup

With spring on the way, we couldn’t help but get excited about using some in-season ingredients in our dog’s goodies. The Daily Bark blog provided inspiration with one herb we sometimes neglect: mint. Read on for an easy treat idea that helps battle any problems with doggy breath!

 

 

 

Ingredients:

  • unsalted soup or oyster crackers
  • fresh mint leaves
  • water, room temperature

Instructions:

Crush crackers and place in one dish. Finely chop the mint and place in another dish. You are looking for a ratio of about one part mint to three or four parts cracker but please experiment! Combine the cracker and mint then add enough water to have the ingredients stick; form into 1/4-inch balls. Place the balls onto wax paper and store in freezer. Once firm, the treats are ready for your pet to enjoy!

Winter Safety for Pets

Tips on keeping your pet healthy this season

We know you love your pets; we do, too! Each season, we take time to revisit a bunch of dos and don’ts on keeping our pets safe. We thought we’d pass these tips on …

  • DON’T let pets near antifreeze. It bears repeating -the sweet scent attracts animals but it is toxic. Clean up spills immediately.
  • DO keep walkways clear of ice and snow. Forgo the salt and try a pet-friendly ice-melt compound instead. Our faves: Safe Paw and Earth Friendly Products brand.
  • Even pups with thick coats can develop frostbite. DON’T keep pets outdoors in frigid temps for extended periods.
  • DO enjoy the season with your pet!

By being cautious and thoughtful this season, you and your pet can safely enjoy all the fun that winter has to offer!

Giraffe – Dog Adoption – Monmouth County SPCA, NJ

Name:     Giraffe

Age:        3 years old

Sex:        Female

Breed:    Terrier mix

Hello! My name is Giraffe and I am 3 year old terrier mix.  No one seems to know how I got my name… lol! My original owner had called me Jewel which works, since I am a beautiful jewel!  I came to stay here at the Monmouth County SPCA after my last owner had to move and was not able to take any pets with her.  I can be a shy girl at first so I am hoping to have a nice quiet home without too much chaos so I can unwind and relax. It might take me a little time to warm up you at first, but once I do I will be snuggling up to you for some attention and cuddle time. [click to continue…]
