What You Can Do

by [email protected] 

For the last few years I have written a monthly column in my homeowners associationís newsletter. Itís called "From The Doghouse" and each month I write about a different topic related mostly to dogs. Some examples are as follows: pet overpopulation statistics, importance of spaying and neutering,
traveling with your companion animal, petsitters, dental health, signs of illness in your companion animal, discouraging buying a puppy as a gift, pet poisons, concerns about summer heat, hurricane preparedness, housetraining, behavioral issues, etc. I even wrote an "animal rights" article about how many animals are killed for food, fur, medical research, etc. Occasionally, I write an article about cats. This newsletter is sent to over 700 homes. I get a great deal of positive feedback. The average person has not been exposed to much of the information I disseminate and I think it has been extremely helpful to many people and most importantly to the animals.

This is something that everyone can implement in his/her own neighborhood, whether you live in a condo, apartment, or home. If you donít have a newsletter in your neighborhood association, you can just print a one page flyer and distribute it yourself. I believe that lots of animal neglect occurs due to
lack of knowledge or education. This is a way to provide that information.

If you have any questions about this please contact me directly at [email protected]
