Back to School - Pet Anxiety

Changes in routine can also lead to anxiety in many dogs. One tip to alleviate some of the stress caused by the changes  that happen when it's time to go back to school is to TURN ON SOME TUNES.

During the summer the house is full of sounds!  When the kids go back to school many of these sounds will suddenly be cut off for the majority of the day.  Whenever your dog is left alone, the sound of human voices or music can be soothing.

Donation Drive at McGraw Hill Education

Some of our furry friends had the chance to visit with the employees at McGraw Hill Education on August 17th.  They held a supply drive for the animals we were receiving in August (over 120 animals from high-kill shelters) were saved right here in Dubuque!
