Who could resist a face like this? Gracie is a 2 month old Lab pup that was rescued off the streets of Russellville, Arkansas along with her 7 litter mates.  Gracie and Boots (Boots is also female) are the only 2 still needing homes. They are just two of the adoptable pets at Mill Creek Animal Rescue.

You guys are amazing!!!

Sabu has a new home. Thank you for getting the word out.

Hi I’m Sabu! (that means warrior)

I need to find a safe, loving new home NOW because my family is losing theirs by April 1st, 2010.  Please adopt me, for I am exceptionally affectionate and attentive pet and extremely loyal companion. You could be my hero!

I’m a 3yr old, male, neutered, pure bred, Pit Bull with stunning golden/hazel eyes that you could just fall in love with. I have a great big personality that gets along with small mellow dogs or be the only pet; my best bud was a male Shih Tzu (truly he was the boss).

Our pets are more like us than you might think. People seem to think that the term “dumb animals” means “stupid” – when it actually means mute. Even then, it’s an untrue statement. Animals can communicate, the question is, can you understand them when they do?

It’s important to remember that your dog or cat has emotions too.  Our pets need the know that they are loved and cared for. In return, they show their love for us in a variety of ways. Cats will often purr, rub their heads and bodies against you, and even kneed you when they are feeling content and happy.  Dogs will rub or lean against you and lick you (or give you doggie kisses!).

Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you know that the swine flu (aka H1N1) has been foremost on the minds of people. Many schools have closed their doors at the slightest hint of an outbreak.

It seemed like this virus would only affect people, pigs of course, and perhaps birds. I mean, who ever heard of a cat or dog getting the flu, right?

Well, think again. So far, 5 ferrets and 3 cats have tested positive for the virus, a cat in Oregon actually died from it. We can no longer assume that our pets are safe from human diseases. Apparently, they can cross over into other species. As it stands right now, no dogs have tested positive for the virus that we know of.

Halloween can be a fun time, but it can also be a scary time for your pet. Here are some tips on keeping your pet safe during Halloween.
