Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.

Caring for Animal Companions

Who loves us, whether we’re on top of the world or down in the dumps, rolling in the dough or barely scraping by? Our animal companions, of course! They’re our best friends, and we owe it to them to make sure that their lives are as happy and comfortable as they can possibly be.

But caring for our best friends isn’t as simple as just filling their food bowls and taking them to the veterinarian when they’re sick. Bringing an animal companion into our lives is a big responsibility—one that means making a lifetime commitment (which could be 15 years or more, depending on the animal) to provide them with exercise, training, grooming, food, veterinary care, and, of course, plenty of love and attention.

This site will help you do just that, with everything you need to know about being a great guardian to your furry, feathered, and finned friends. From housetraining Fido to nontoxic flea control, from spaying and neutering to saving kitty’s claws and your couch, you’ve found your reliable source for animal-care advice.

    I wonder how many PETA advocates use vegan pet food, it would be kind of silly to be a vegan/vegetarian yourself and be buying meat to feed your animals. Vegancats.com has the best vegan dog and cat food around highly recommended!

    Hi,

    I just wanted to let you know that on July 19, 2012, at my favorite coffee shop, I witnessed a young woman leave her dog in the hot car. Not wanting to be confrontational, I simply mentioned that it was hot outside and questioned her about her dog. She said, “I wish there was somewhere I can put him.”

    Later that same night, I was reading the news and I read about a Yorkie puppy who died. It made me sad and I wanted to do something about it. But what?

    That’s when I had my “Ah-ha” moment. I started my company with the hopes that pet owners can temporary use Puppy Parking Lot signs instead of leaving their dogs in hot cars.

    Check us out!

    Thank you,

    I am thinking about getting, two cats, from an advertisement. The owners says, child is allergic to the cats.. I am trying to be careful who I get the cats from, she doesn’t want me to come to her home..I do understand that, however I have adopted or rescued from a person from a few ads, all wanted me to come to their home in order for me to see what and where the animals lived and also to get to know me and what my idea’s were to take care of their animals, for what ever reason they couldn’t keep their animals..whether it be money, sickness or death of an owner, or divorce…This owner has asked me no questions. What is a re homing fee? And why, the advisement said free to good home..I always thought I was doing the owner a favor..but if that is the norm I will pay it..She is asking for $50 dollars, I consider this because, the 2 cats has a bed a play house and igloo for their little box..I wanted to go to her house and help her in order for me not have it put back together…What questions should I ask her?..Like the Vet record, she said she had lost them..should I ask for the vets address and get them myself? I just want to do the right thing for these pretty cats..
    Thanks so much.

    Anamouse, look on Petfinder.com. There are tons and tons of animals that need homes, and the pound is a wonderful place to adopt a pet. Please do not buy from a pet store or even a friend, this is irresponsible because it encourages breeding animals. Pets adopted from shelters are often already spayed or neutered, and in my experience are very loving and grateful to have a home and be rescued. I would recommend 2 cats, they will be able to have company but it is not so much that you can’t handle them. Cats are also more friendly if fixed, because their hormones don’t influence their actions–they are less territorial, stay at home, etc. Please keep your cats inside and safe so they don’t get hit by a car or injured. Good luck finding a good match for you and please enjoy your special friend!

    I’m so glad I found you site, I was thinking I might want to get a few cats and your site, especially the nice pictures, and kind words about animals, has convinced me I should.

    I like the idea of getting 3 so they can play with each other like my dogs do.

    I don’t want to get them from the pound, can you give me some insight about where I can get nice ones without visiting the pound?

    Thankyou
