At the mention of the commercials showing rescued animals, you surely get the reference. They bring many people to tears, calling in to pledge money and rescue the animals. Most of the time, what comes to mind is dogs and cats, the traditional household pets. However, there are plenty of other pets and animals in general that need to be rescued as well. Think about the endangered species and animals involved in oil spills. Consider the forest fires and the animals that get hurt in different ways out in the wild.

A lot of people make those phone calls. They may also go to local animal shelters and adopt pets such as the SPCA. They may be involved in occupations that deal with rescuing animals. My last dog was a rescue animal, a white dog. Then there are some people that take extra steps that others don’t normally take.

Most people aren’t able to take in all kinds of wild animals and nurse them back to health, but that is exactly what one of my friends used to do. She found a wounded owl.

She had built her home out on land in a rural area. As mentioned, not everyone is going to nurse an owl and other wildlife back to health. Most people wouldn’t know how. Even she can surely get herself into a pickle. Do you have a soft heart when it comes to animals that need rescued? Who doesn’t, right? If only you could do something to rescue them all.

There is plenty you can do though.

There are multiple organizations that take donations for multiple causes. There are charities for the elephants, and there are charities for the tigers. You can donate to all kinds of different causes. Perhaps you suddenly have the urge to take things offline and go to the local animal shelter. Please make sure the decision is the right one for your home, and then get ready to welcome a new pet. You know there is going to be one there to take home.

Here’s a story about an owl that struck up a strong bond with the man who saved her …

Maybe you will find a white fluffy dog like mine, or you can get yourself a new family cat. Animals are often helpless in our society because of the way the world is setup. Each of us can do our part to help those animals live with us happy and healthy. It makes it easy when certain animals like dogs just want love and to show love unconditionally.

Selecting A Professional For Grooming Dogs

Your pet is a valued member of your family, so it is crucial that you take the time and consideration necessary to find the right person for grooming dogs in your area. This is a process that takes a great deal of careful handling to groom a dog properly, not to mention any precautions that should be taken around scissors and clippers. The dog groomer that you choose will be bathing your pet, cutting, clipping and brushing. It goes without saying that you need to follow some important tips before settling down with any groomer.

Ask around …

Every time a dog and their owner leaves a groomer, it is almost like a walking advertisement. See if you can speak to neighbours who have pets, your local kennel manager and your veterinarian to see if anyone has recommendations on a great groomer in your area. You can also stop and talk to anyone who is walking with a dog that has a beautiful coat to find out where they go for grooming dogs and who they may recommend.

Check online …

If there are some groomers in the area that you are interested in, it is smart to call around to ask questions. Find out where they went to grooming school and who they may have apprenticed with. You can also ask questions like how long they have been grooming dogs, what kind of experience they have with a certain breed and whether or not they are a member of any of the professional grooming organisations. This can be a great way to get to know a little bit about the groomer and also open up a dialogue so that you can see whether or not they seem to be personable and easy to work with.

Remain patient …

Groomers are usually on a pretty tight schedule, so he or she may not be able to call you back right away or they may not be able to answer all of your questions in the initial phone call. Give him/her some time to call you back and see if they have time for a longer phone call. In some cases, the groomer may even invite you to their place of business so that you can talk with them, see the facility and see some of the pets that they are working on to understand how they interact with the animals.

No matter what, you should always trust your intuition, as it can tell you a great deal about what you may be able to expect from the groomer that you select. If it feels right, you have more than likely made the best choice.
