THIS WEEK’S ADOPTABLE PET OF THE WEEK
SEPTEMBER 19th TO 25th: Welcome Sasha to our Pet of the Week line up! Sasha is a female, 4 and half year old terrier and is available for adoption at the Greenbrier Humane Society ready to be welcomed into your home. While she isn’t spayed, she will be upon adoption. Until then, you can find Sasha on 59News at 5 & 6am all this week!
Remember the 7 second rule when it comes to taking a walk with your pets. Place your hand on the concrete, asphalt, or ground and if you can’t keep your hand there for 7 seconds, it’s too hot for your pets paws.
Under 100 degrees is safe: but the hotter you get, you’ll want to monitor your pet for changes in walking habits and check their paws at times for damage, injury, or redness.
Temps over 100 degrees: is dangerous for your pets paws depending on size of pet.
Above 125 degrees: and your pet could suffer burns on their paws in under 15 seconds! Blisters can get infected and it will be very painful for your pet to treat, not to mention expensive for you. When in doubt, stick to grassy surfaces and take plenty of breaks!
