Pet of the Week: Peaches

Pet of the Week: Peaches

"Hi, my name is "Peaches." I am 12 week old dilute tortie with white feet, and a peach-colored "flame" on my forehead. I am friendly and loveable. Please adopt me and I promise to bring much love and happiness to your life. My brothers Milo and Monte and sister Princess are also looking for a home if you would like to give me a friend. For more info, please email Michele at michele@harpsinc.org. All photos listed are courtesy postings for individuals in need of assistance with animal placement.

Peaches is house trained and is staying at HARPS (Homeless Animal Rescue & Placement Svcs.) in Warner Robins, Ga.

Summer Safety Tips

Hot weather can make us all uncomfortable, and it poses special risks for your dog. Keep the following safety concerns in mind as the temperature rises, and follow our tips to keep your dog cool.

Heat Hazards

If your dog is outside on a hot day, make sure he has a shady spot to rest in. Doghouses are not good shelter during the summer as they can trap heat. You may want to fill a child's wading pool with fresh water for your dog to cool off in.

Never leave your dog in a closed vehicle on a hot day. The temperature inside a car can rise to over 100 degrees in a matter of minutes.

Always provide plenty of cool, fresh water.

Avoid strenuous exercise on extremely hot days. Take walks in the early mornings or evenings, when the sun's heat is less intense.

Try to avoid prolonged exposure to hot asphalt or sand, which can burn your dog's paws.
