Finding A Lost Pet
Do you have a recent photograph of your pet? It can be an important item if your pet happens to wander away and gets lost. You can make posters with copies of the photos, so others will recognize your animal. The obvious action in the event of pet disappearance is to comb the neighborhood. When that is unsuccessful, move further afield by contacting all the veterinarians, pounds and shelters in your area. The radio stations, newspapers, and police departments should also be notified. Check the classifieds for found pets. You can even log on to the VT Humane Federation website: www.vthumanefed.com and view the stray animals that are available. Yours might be among them.

Animal Cares: Leaving Your Pet(s) Home Alone
Summer is ending and school is starting. Suddenly the children are getting back into a daily routine and there is less time to play with the dog and/or cat. Dogs can really become saddened by this change in their environment, while cats often thrive on their newly acquired independence. Since cats are less socially dependent than dogs they are able to amuse themselves more easily. This is not to say that they do not miss their people, but the cat seldom meets the return of the student with the enthusiasm demonstrated by a lonely pup whose entire being is devoted to pleasing its human master. It is also a time to drive more carefully, being aware of young people on the road and, possibly, an anxious pet trying to accompany a child to or from school. (Even the most conscientious pet owner can experience the unintended escape of a furry friend.)
