Summer is a time when the extreme heat of the season can be dangerous for pets. The most serious concern is heat stroke. Symptoms can include excessive panting, lethargy, drooling, fever and vomiting. You can help your pet to lower their body temperature:
  • Move them to a cooler location (somewhere indoors with a fan or air conditioner) and provide cool fresh water.

  • Use room temperature water (either by hand or in a misting spray bottle) to help cool their skin via evaporation.

  • Limit exercise periods during hot days.

  • Take walks in the morning and evening hours.

  • Keep them on grassy areas if possible as hot surfaces can harm their paw pads as well as increase their body temperatures.

  • Find a shady area and be sure to have cool clean water available.

  • Help keep water cool by using ice cubes or adding a container of frozen chicken or beef stock.

  • Never use a muzzle for your dog in hot weather as it restricts their ability to pant – which is how they cool themselves off to maintain their body temperature.

  • Remove shedding fur or trimming long hair to keep your pet cooler, but don’t shave too close (leave at least an inch in length) as the fur protects your pet from sunburn.

  • Finally, never leave your pet in a parked car as temperatures will rise very quickly – even if the windows are open.

The Thrift Store of Monroe County Friends of Animals has opened at its new location: 3949 Highway 411, Madisonville. The store will be open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 AM to 4 PM. There are tremendous bargains and new merchandise arrives daily. The thrift store is an important revenue generator that helps the organization care for the homeless and abandoned cats and dogs of Monroe County. Along with our new location, check out our new Facebook page at Thrift Store of MCFA.

Shelter Needs: Lots of scoopable/clumping cat litter (Tidy Cat), paper towels, laundry detergent, copy paper, bleach, Q-tips, cotton balls, and Original blue Dawn-all cleaning & office supplies are always needed!
