With Halloween just a week away the Humane Society for Shelter Pets is offering America’s pet owners some safety tips to ensure this Halloween is truly spooktacular.
According to the National Retail Federation, 170 million people plan to celebrate Halloween this year. With so many families participating in All Hallow’s Eve festivities, it’s important to take this opportunity to talk about pet safety.
With every human celebration there are opportunities for lapses in household security resulting in ghastly accidents or devilish escapes.
Strangers stopping by in ghoulish costumes can cause plenty of anxiety, while parties offer access to large amounts of food and candy. Although only pigs and dogs, and a certain two-legged animal, seem to be at the greatest risk for overindulging, it’s worth considering a few ways to batten down the hatches and protect pets from mishap.
