This Week’s Adoptable Pet: Sparky!
The lucky family that adopts this pet featured here on our blog will receive a coupon from HAWS good for a “congratulations” gift bag from End of the Leash!
To learn more about how to adopt through HAWS, please visit their adoption page. You may also give them a call at 262.542.8851.
Spark is a Jack Russell mix who’s had more than a few ups and downs in his life! He’s been in a few homes and is now looking for “the one” – with his special needs it will need to be a very special home (he has some separation anxiety, does a little resource guarding). While at HAWS he’s been working with our Mod Squad, going out on Mobile Adoption visits AND has been with the campers at our Kids ‘N Critters Day Camp – he’s doing well with all those activities so he definitely has lots of potential.
More info on Sparky can be found here.
More on Cleaning Green
From “Spring Cleaning Your Dog Can Live With” from Dogs Naturally Magazine:
In 2008, the Washington, D.C. based Environmental Working Group conducted a study to determine the effects of cleaning solutions on our pets, and found high levels of toxic chemicals from house- hold cleaners in dogs and cats. For dogs, blood and urine samples were contaminated with 35 chemicals, including 11 carcinogens, 31 chemicals toxic to the reproductive system, and 24 neurotoxins.
