Featured Pet: Malcom
Malcom is a handsome, friendly FeLV+ cat who wasn't feeling well when he first arrived but is flourishing in his foster home!
While he can't go home with FeLV negative cats, he loves other animals! His foster mom says, “Malcolm is all purrs and personality! He loves his canine foster brother and has the warmest heart! He loves to look out the window and take naps in his cat bed. He is incredibly affectionate and loves to play with cat toys!”

Summer Travel Safety
Are you planning on bringing your furry friends along on your next summer road trip? Make sure that both you and your pets are fully prepared with these travel safety tips!
Before loading up the car and hitting the road, be sure to take your pet on some test drives to see how they feel about being in the car. Some pets LOVE traveling, but for others, it can be scary and overwhelming, so you'll need to plan ahead to keep your pet calm. Playing soothing music, covering their carrier with a blanket or towel, or even avoiding certain kinds of roads may help ease your pet's anxiety. Be sure that your pet is safely secured in your vehicle, as a loose pet in your car can be a danger to you and your passengers!
Check-in with your vet before leaving to secure any vaccination records, and make sure to pick up any medication you may need to help with anxiety or carsickness. Remember to pack everything your pet will need for travel! Along with the basics, it's smart to pack paper towels and stain remover for accidents, as well as toys or blankets with familiar scents to help your pet feel comfortable in a new environment.
The last tip might seem obvious, but make sure that wherever you plan to travel is pet-friendly, and doesn't have any sneaky breed or weight restrictions. Have fun, and safe travels!
