#LessPlastic Challenge Week 1

A few weeks ago I announced that KHS was challenging itself and all of its users to use #lessplastic.  Each Wednesday through the end of the year we want to focus on information about how plastics are destroying our planet and how we can all start adjusting our daily routines to use less of it.  It was bold (and possibly not thought out very well) to launch such an ambitious PSA campaign in the weeks leading up to the Dog Walk & K-9 Festival, and so we’re going to officially start our #lessplastic Wednesday themes today!

Let’s kick this thing off by talking about straws!  Such a simple thing, really, but they’re the source of a massive environmental problem that we should all be concerned about.

There is a significant international campaign going on right now to #DitchTheStraw.  This movement is being spearheaded by The Last Plastic Straw, which is a project of the Plastic Pollution Coalition.  From the Plastic Pollution Coalition website:

Over 500,000,000 plastic straws are used each day in the United States. In only the past twenty years, people have come to expect plastic straws in every drink, in an example of extreme waste being generated for minimal convenience. These short-lived tools are usually dropped into a garbage can with no further thought, instantly becoming a source of plastic pollution.

You can make a considerable impact by refusing the straw!  It’s easy, and once it becomes a habit, you’ll never give it a second thought.  Step 1, order your drinks #strawfree.  Step 2, drink from the cup.  Little changes like this can make an enormous difference, and encouraging others to follow your example will lead to more and more people who are happy to #refusethestraw.

Last week Sarah, our Volunteer Coordinator, and I went to Noodles & Co, and we both successfully drank beverages without a straw.  It took 0% extra effort, and we got all the feel-goods for sticking to our #lessplatic resolution!

Straw Free Lunch Meeting

Tips for Bonding with a New Pet for First-Time Owners

Pet Bonding Photo

One of the main reasons we, as humans, decide to adopt a new pet is so that we can have a new companion in our lives. We don’t just want to open up a dog or cat hotel – we want an intimate bond with our pets. For first-time pet owners, knowing how to create a strong bond can be difficult. Sometimes it comes easy, and sometimes it’s not so simple. Here are some tips to ensure you and your new pet bond.

Start training your dog immediately

Whether you’re adopting an older dog or getting a puppy, it’s vital that you begin to train them as soon as they step foot into their new home. Dogs prefer structure and purpose, and an untrained dog is not just a pain – it’s an unhappy dog. When your dog is properly trained, you can spend more time enjoying each other’s company and less time trying to correct/discipline bad behaviors.

“Well-trained dogs are allowed greater freedom. If they come when called, they get to spend more time off leash. If they don’t go for the food on the table, they can stay nearby during meals. Training also reduces frustration because when you ask your dog to do something he’s been taught to do, he knows what you want,” says TheBark.com.

Always remain calm

Dogs and cats pick up on your energy, and if you are angry, nervous, or stressed out around them, they’re going to know it. It’s important to always be calm when dealing with your new pet – even if they’ve just eaten through your favorite pair of jeans or broken your grandma’s favorite vase.

The quickest ways to damage the bond between you and your pet is to be aggressive – physically or emotionally. And this sort of damage is very hard to reverse. Dogs have a hard time recovering from fear.

Be generous with the praise

“Praising your dog is a super easy way to let him know that you appreciate his good behavior, which will encourage him to continue making the right decisions. There are endless daily opportunities to give your dog positive feedback,” says PetMD.

You don’t have to give your dog treats every time they do anything good, a nice pat on the head, belly rub, and “atta boy” will do just fine. But it’s important that you always acknowledge good behavior, instead of just reacting to bad behavior. Physical contact is one of the best ways to bond with your new pet.

Spend lots of time with them

This may sound like a no brainer, but with cats and dogs alike, the most important way to develop a strong bond is to spend a lot of time together. Some people mistakenly think that pets are mostly solitary creatures who can spend a lot of time alone, and just a few interactions a day is enough to make them happy. If you want a strong bond, however, you have to do things together. If you work long days or your job requires you to be gone during the night or on lengthy business trips, you may need to make considerations for your pet to get some attention and exercise. You can seek out a local dog walking service, for instance. Or you can have a friend come over and play with your new pet when you’re not around.

The main ways in which you can create a stronger bond with your new pet are to give it plenty of attention, train it to the best of your ability, always stay calm and never be mean or aggressive, and be overly generous with the praise. If you start with those steps, you’ll be well on your way to forming a rewarding friendship with your new animal pal.

$20 surgeries for Pit Bull-type dogs!

Kalamazoo Humane Society Receives More Than $30,000 from PetSmart Charities® to fund Fix-A-Pit program

Local pet parents can get their Pit Bull and Pit Bull mixes spayed or neutered for $20

KALAMAZOO, MI (February 21, 2017) – Pit bull terriers end up in shelters in large numbers due to myths and misperceptions, which impact public opinions of the breed and reduce the adoption rates of these dogs in local animal shelters.

That’s why the Kalamazoo Humane Society, with funding support from PetSmart Charities, the leading funder of animal welfare in North America, is offering the Fix-A-Pit program. Thanks to a generous grant for more than $30,000 from PetSmart Charities, the Kalamazoo Humane Society will provide a special $20 spay/neuter surgery and free nail trim for pit bull terriers and pit bull terrier mixes throughout 2017.

“Spaying/neutering a pet is the most effective thing a pet parent can do to prevent unwanted litters from being born that will ultimately end up in local shelters,” says Aaron Winters, Executive Director of the Kalamazoo Humane Society.

Some pet parents may be hesitant to get their young puppies sterilized. But the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) endorses spaying and neutering puppies as young as eight to 10 weeks old. Research also shows that the procedure may improve the behavior and health of the pet, including reducing the risk of certain reproductive cancers and infections.

“At PetSmart Charities, we are committed to ending pet homelessness,” said Kelly Balthazor, regional relationship manager at PetSmart Charities.  “By supporting the Kalamazoo Humane Society in their effort to make spay and neuter services more accessible and affordable for all pet parents, we hope to reduce unwanted litters and pet overpopulation and end pet homelessness across the state of Michigan.”

This special $20 rate is even less than the organization’s normal low-cost price and is available to the public.  This program is based on availability.

Thanks to the PetSmart Charities grant, the Kalamazoo Humane Society will provide 350 Fix-A-Pit sterilizations for $20 in 2017. Please visit www.kazoohumane.org or call 269-345-1181 for more information or to schedule an appointment.

Did Winter catch you unprepared?

With shopping, travel and the holidays having an extended Fall season was great!  No bad hair days on Christmas morning, no white-knuckled drives to Grandma’s house, and no house-full of guests dragging in snowy boots!  All-in-all, this was a fantastic end to a year.

With the New Year came new weather; snow, ice and blustery cold winds.  This weather was inevitable, and if you procrastinated in prepping for another Michigan winter, you’ll want to make sure to catch up quickly!  Here’s our best tips for getting your home ready for whatever this winter has to bring.

Outdoor Pets

We’d love for every pet to be indoors, safe and warm and cozied up by a fire but there are a number of outdoor pets that for whatever reason aren’t brought inside during bad weather.  If you are the owner of an outdoor pet, you need to be aware that you are responsible for providing adequate shelter and provisions to keep your pet healthy during the winter months.

Dogs are required by law to have clean, dry bedding and an area free from feces and debris.  Many dog owners will use old blankets or comforters and change or wash them as they become dirty.  Many others use straw.  Whatever you choose, make sure it’s dry and can be replaced as needed.  When snow melts and the area around your dog house gets muddy, your dog will be bringing all that dampness and dirt into his shelter.  Keep up on removing any feces build-up, and keep food and water dishes away from areas where your dog will be going to the bathroom.

If you haven’t already done it, take the time to check out the structure of your dog house, rabbit hutch, or other outdoor structure.  Does it leak?  Can you see daylight from the inside?  Does the roof need patching?  Your pet will be spending a significant amount of time inside whatever you have provided, and it needs to be in a state of good repair.  Write out a list of repairs or updates that need to be made and head over to your local hardware store.  Discounted building supplies can often be found at Habitat for Humanity Re-store’s, or even online using Craigslist.

Having a structure isn’t enough.  You’ll need to make sure your dog house, hutch or shelter is well protected from the wind, snow and cold.  Placing your shelter alongside an existing building that can protect it from some of the elements is helpful, but you might also consider using tarps, plastic sheeting,  or wood panels to further block out the wind and snow.

Elevating your shelter is also an effective way to keep out dirt and debris, and hold in heat.  If you can get your shelter on a palette or other platform and insulate beneath the shelter, you reduce heat loss and moisture from seeping in.

Peeling paint and faded stains on wood surfaces will speed up the decay of your structure.  This is going to be a Spring or indoor project, but make sure you get to it as soon as possible to avoid health hazards to your pet and to extend the life of your shelter.

Your pet can also be bulked up to help withstand winter conditions!  Just like humans, animals are made up of mostly water.  Making sure your pets nutrition is ideal for building a healthy later of fat and a hair coat that is in good condition will help to retain body heat.  Check with your veterinarian about a proper winter diet.  Pets will burn an increased number of calories to produce heat and stay warm.  You’ll need to make sure the diet your pet is on has enough calories to maintain a healthy body mass.

Even if your shelter is in great shape and your pet is beefy and fluffy, there will be days that are just too cold and dangerous for any domesticated animal to remain outside.  In these cases, it’s best to bring your pet inside.  If for any reason you cannot bring the pet into the living spaces of your home, try to allow access to the basement, a laundry room, or the garage.  There are some pets that cannot withstand a typical Michigan winter, even with a good shelter due to age, health or breed related reasons.

Use your best judgement or the opinion of your veterinarian to determine if your pet can be kept comfortably outdoors.  If you’re looking to get a new pet and you have no plans to bring it inside, look closely at your reasons for wanting a pet before adding an animal to that lifestyle.  At all times, your decisions need to be made in the best interest of the people and pets in your care. If you need to make sacrifices to your pet in order to keep the people in your home healthy and safe, you may want to consider re-homing your pet where it can receive a higher standard of care.

In the event of severe weather, power outages or evacuations, make sure to have enough pet food on hand to last a week, including water for your pet.  You may also want to keep an emergency kit handy that includes supplies for first aid, enough transport carriers for your pets and dry bedding.

One year ago, on Friday, January 9th, 2015, a 193-vehicle crash on I-94 created a hazmat situation that resulted in a police-mandated evacuation of residents in a 3-mile radius of the accident.  If you were asked to evacuate your home right now, would you be prepared?  Having a “Go-Kit” prepared and a plan of where to go could mean the difference between life and death for your outdoor pet(s).

It is not illegal to have outdoor pets.  If you’re seeing an outdoor dog that appears to be without essential shelter, food, or water, contact your local animal services department right away and have them check it out.  They will be able to bring the owner up to compliance and offer tips to improve the living conditions of the dog or outdoor pet.  Animal welfare professionals cannot remove an animal without cause.  If an outdoor pet is in a state of good health and has the minimum required provisions, they will not be able to legally remove the pet or charge the owner with neglect.

If an animal is not moving and does not seem alert, call your local animal authorities right away.  Outdoor dogs, cats and rabbits do not hibernate.  Aside from sleeping and napping, they should be alert and active throughout the winter months.

A Very Busy Week!

We’ve had a whirlwind of a week here at KHS!  Last Tuesday we closed on property for our new location, we’re planning and fundraising for the Reverse Raffle November 20th, we’ve been broken into and robbed, we’ve been on the front page of the Sunday Kalamazoo Gazette, and featured on WWMT!  With all of that going on in just the span of 7 days, you can imagine we’re all looking for the weekend to hurry  up and get here!

With all of what has happened and all that we have planned for the the next few months (and years), we’re slowing down for a minute to step back and thank all of our supporters for everything you do to help animals in our communities.  These are just a few of the reasons why we’re so thankful to do our work here in Kalamazoo – an community of animal lovers and people who want to help…

  • Yes, we lost our donation jar, but Fear the Farm has created a coupon that can be used to help us earn back some of the lost money;
  • Today we’ve been nominated to earn “Casual Day” donations by supporter who works at a local business (we’ll announce who if we are selected!);
  • People who can’t attend the Reverse Raffle event have made donations toward Operation Fix-It, and people who are attending donated above the cost of their tickets;
  • The volunteer who made our stolen donation box stopped in right away today to promise us a new one (with upgrades!);
  • Kalamazoo Dept. of Public Safety was at our building right away after the break-in and demonstrated yet again their professionalism and genuine care for their city;
  • WWMT Channel 3 News put out quick and accurate coverage of our break-in, which inspired new donations to come in;
  • Consumers Energy invited us to be a part of the Smart Energy Challenge which would allow us to win up to $6000 over the next 6 months;
  • Your likes, shares, comments, calls, donations and all of the other ways you support us have been incredible and we wouldn’t be able to do any of the amazing things we do without you on our team!

Thank you, Kalamazoo and all the surrounding area and supporters!  As a Humane Society, we couldn’t ask to work in a more supportive or dedicated place!

If you’re wondering what you can do to help, here are some suggestions:

If you have other ideas you’d like to share with us, give us a call or email jbarber@kazoohumane.org!  We’re fully supportive of any suggestions you have and will help in any way possible.
