Holidays Are Coming....

Tis the season to be furry...meow, meow, meow, meow, meow....ok well maybe that's not how that goes, but perhaps it should be!  The holidays are coming and many of us will be celebrating with our furry family members.   Here at the Pike County Humane Society we have so many move in ready pets who would be perfect on their own special bed next to the Christmas tree, enjoying what every loving pet deserves-  a warm, loving home of their own.  Please visit our Petfinder.com page and see all the great animals waiting to come home with you.  You can also visit our shelter at 189 Lee Road, Shohola PA 18458 to meet them in person and see for yourself how special our shelter and shelter animals truly are.
Can't adopt but still want to help a deserving pet find their forever family?  Consider sponsoring their adoption fee for an approve home.  Its a generous gift that will mean everything to that homeless pet.

Pet Safe Thanksgiving!

We want to wish all our supporters a fantastic Thanksgiving!  We all know that we look forward to our yearly feast of food and good times with family, pets included.  However we need to forego the temptation to allow our furry friends to partake in food festivities.  Each year some eager pooches and kitties who talk their humans in to a few extra treats end up with upset tummies at the veterinary clinic.  Sometimes  it is a mild issue and a matter of a probiotic, antibiotic and bland diet.  Other times however, it is the result of an ingested bone, chocolate toxicity, or even pancreatitis, which could be life threatening.  So what do you do when those eyes stare up at you wanting?  Have some great dog treats on hand to placate them.  If you want to give them some really yummy and fresh food, consider getting them some Fresh Pet.  It is a pet safe complete food made locally in Bethlehem PA that gives them a special treat.  Best recommendation is to mix it with their regular food.   Additionally be watchful of well meaning guests who may sneak something to your pet.
The following is  a list of common foods and holiday items which are dangerous to our pets:
Onions
Tomatoes
Chocolate
Macadamia Nuts
Raisins and Grapes
Garlic
Animal bones (chicken, turkey, pork)
Alcohol
Caffeinated beverages
Avacado
Xylitol (found in gum and some other foods)
Yeast products

Have a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

Lodi needs your support!

On August 16th, our Director and Humane Police Officer, Barry Heim responded to a cruelty complaint near Matamoras.  The complainant stated that there was an emaciated dog they were concerned about.  Upon visiting the property he was shown a male, Yellow Lab by someone staying at the home.  The dog, was clearly emaciated.  His hips, spine and ribs were protruding, his eyes and head were sunken in.  At first guess, it was thought that the dog was likely a senior, 12yrs or older.  Barry Heim was able to contact the owner (Owner name withheld due to pending charges) and have them come to the home.  Once there is was revealed the dog is actually 6 years old.  The dog was signed over to the humane society at that time.  Currently he is in the care of the Shohola Veterinary Hospital where he will remain hospitalized until stable to come back to the shelter.  Bloodwork and examination has revealed that this is not the result of illness but willful neglect and starvation.  This poor dog is suffering from severe muscle atrophy, to the point that his teeth are loose.  He will need to remain on canned and soft foods until his body recuperates.  As with any case like this, we will need donations for his care and of course your prayers for a speedy recovery.  Please use our PayPal button on the upper left to donate today so we may continue to help animals like Lodi.
