Connecting Hearts
The beautiful red merle Catahoula mix could sense the veteran’s nervousness as he fumbled with the adoption paperwork in his hands. Billy had suffered disruptive night terrors since he returned home from serving overseas and the VA suggested adopting a dog to help him cope with feelings of anxiety and isolation.

Pet Tip: Thanksgiving Safety
thanksgiving 1.jpg  
We are all thankful for the joy our pets bring to our lives, so keep your Thanksgiving celebrations merry by taking a few precautions to keep them safe! Allowing your pets to overindulge in fatty food prepared with butter and spices is a recipe for disaster - and pancreatitis. Sage (a common ingredient in stuffing) and many other herbs contain essential oils that can cause gastrointestinal distress and nervous system problems in pets if consumed in large quantities. Keep pet meals limited to their own food and a safe treat for a happy Thanksgiving! For more pet tips, visit ARF’s Pet Care & Behavior Library.
