4 ways to celebrate Thanksgiving safely with your pets
While you may be tempted to treat your pets to the turkey, and sides you are enjoying, they should really be treated to something completely different. We spoke to Anna Chrisman, with Michigan Humane, who has 4 ways to help make the holiday safe and enjoyable for your furry friends.
Think you’re ready for an Easter bunny of your own?
Easter is coming up, which means it’s time to remind everyone that a bunny, duck or chick may make for a cute gift on Easter morning, but buying live animals can be a huge, years-long commitment. It’s important to do your research before buying any pet, but if you’re serious about bringing home a “springtime” animal, here are a couple of tips from Michigan Humane’s Anna Chrisman:Make sure to research your pet first. A rabbit can live for more than a decade, and if you’re not ready to give your love and attention to one for that long, maybe it isn’t the pet for you. So you’ll need to do some research and make sure there is a vet nearby who can take care of your new pet. This isn’t to say you shouldn’t adopt pets in need, and if you’re serious about making a commitment to a rabbit, Chrisman has the pet for you.
