Keep your Pets Safe with the ASPCA Summer Safety Tips and Give-Away!

Hi  friends!! Today is the first day of summer here in the U.S. ! We had some crazy hot temps last week but thankfully it has cooled off a bit. With summer having arrived,  the hot weather will be setting in for good!

Many people with pets will be spending more time outside due to the warmer weather and that poses added risks. Everything from heat to fireworks. July 4th is right around the corner, (the fireworks cause many pets to escape and go missing), as a result  the ASPCA wants to remind pet owners of the IMPORTANCE of being sure that your pet has an ID. July 1st is also ID Your Pet Day. Your pet should have an ID tag with updated info, even microchips are great. Dakota has  a microchip, they are always a good idea.

The ASPCA has created this mini infographic with  super important safety tips to help keep your furbabies safe this summer:

  1. thanks for a great post Dakota… I hope that all pet parents will take are of their furkids. The heat can be a killer and we animals have the same problems to deal with super hot weather like humans…

  2. People always find it odd that we are more inspired to get the A/C installed every year to protect the dogs but they have fewer options than we do to cool down.

    Noise is more challenging as we don’t respond to most of the suggestions but we’ve learned it does end

    Dakota, you look so ready for summer with those shades on! Great info here, too! Happy Summer!

  4. Pawsome graphic and post, sweet Dakota. We are ready for the next noisy weeks. The hot temps, well maybe not as much but we’ll hunker down in the AC’d house and watch in cool comfort and hope all pets stay safe and happy.

    We took great care of our Little Bit all the time, but especially during the summer. It does get hot and we never left her in our vehicle. We did whatever need doing during thunderstorms and she hated fireworks with a passion. She was our baby and so we cared for her before we cared for ourselves. As it should be.

    Have a woof woof day, Dakota. My best to your wonderful mom. ♥♥♥

  19. Ohhh this is the roughest time of the entire summer for us. We have the big thunder storms and fireworks all around. It is my least favorite time of year for sure! I have made the basement into a nice little retreat for the Girls and we are spending a LOT of time down there in the cool and quiet. Hope you all are weathering it well.

  23. great infographic. i have saved it to my pinterest board.
    oh bailey HATES loud noises. we have a terrible time each year with the fireworks. everything scares her. the other day i turned on the light switch and she jumped! if she drops a kibble back into her food bowl, it scares her. i could go on and on. i have never known a dog that gets so scared with every little sound. ugh i am dreading the 4th.
    btw, we’d love to be entered!
