CINCINNATI - This week on Pet Pals, Bob Howard from the Stray Animal Adoption Program joined us with two puppies in need of homes. They were 8-week-old yellow lab/shepherd mix puppies...a male and a female.
Both of them are available for immediate adoption at the Fort Wright Petco. There will be many other animals available today at their adopt-a-thon with more than 30 puppies and dogs up for adoption.
Howard also wanted to remind everyone that back-to-school time means that pets need attention too. Here’s what he suggests:
1. Be sure to include the pet as you re-adjust the children's daily schedule.
2. Save a special toy for the children to give to the pet just as they leave for school. Put that toy away once the children return, so that the toy remains "special".
3. The pet will probably need more exercise now that the children are spending time away from home.
4. Consider getting a pet for your pet to help combat loneliness.
