November Pet Food Drive

We are holding our annual pet food drive during the month of November. Last year because of your generous donations we were able to collect over 2200lbs of food to feed pets at the Davis County Animal Shelter and pets supported by Street Dawg Crew of Utah – helping homeless and low income families feed their pets.

Donations can be brought to our facility at 908 North Main Street in Layton, Utah.

For every 15 lbs of dry, or 12 cans of pet food you will receive one entry into our drawing for a $100 Visa Gift Card.

During winter months it is important to keep your pets warm and safe. Here are a few tips to help your pets enjoy the winter wonderland outside.

— If it’s too cold for you, it’s probably too cold for your pet. When temperatures drop pets should not be kept outdoors for extended periods of time. Pets can become hypothermic, suffer frost bite or even death.

— Wipe off paws and dry off fur after returning inside. Removing salt and snow from your pet’s paws and fur can prevent irritation from ice melt and dried out skin.

— Keep antifreeze and other chemicals out of reach from your pets. Ingestion of antifreeze can result in kidney failure if not treated immediately and other chemicals can also have severe consequences. Prevention is the best option when it comes to toxin exposure.

— Pets may need a few extra calories during winter months. Offering a few extra treats, or a little more at meal times can help meet the caloric needs during cold weather. Keep in mind that most animals will put on some winter weight; however, this should be a small amount of weight that will be lost in the spring.
