Smallest Horse In The World Tries To Follow His Dad To Work
For all of you who own cats AND dogs, be careful to separate the dogs from the cats if you use a topical flea/tick product. If your cats are like ours, they rub all over the dogs (marking their territory, I think). Our vet said that if a cat get something like Advantix on itself, it could be fatal.

Do we really need to tell people that this is wrong? I guess we do.

A dog that was inside a crate strapped to the back of an RV headed to the B.C. Interior during the heatwave has been taken away from the owner.

The Opossum's Pouch Sanctuary, Rescue and Rehabilitation
Many orphans can be left a few hours to see if mom comes back...NOT OPOSSUMS! If you see a baby like this one in a yard or anywhere, get it quickly in a little box or pet carrier with a blanket and keep warm. Momma opossum can have up to 13 babies. As they grow, they don't all fit in the pouch so they ride on her back. If something startles her and she runs, one can fall off. Momma doesn't know she lost one so please never ever leave one thinking mom will come back...
New Hope Pet Rescue
PSA: DO NOT bleach your pumpkins to make them last longer!! I've seen this tip being shared all over social media this season and it stinks! Please remember pumpkins are food, especially to lots of the wildlife! Deer, squirrels, raccoons, possums, mice, rats, chipmunks, birds, and even bugs. We deliberately stick them outside somewhere where wildlife can access them and we DO NOT want our wildlife eating bleached pumpkins!!! 🐿🥺🖤
Instead, try using vinegar. 1 part vinegar to 10 parts water will work just as well. Thanks! 🎃

The Army of the Kind.
This tortoise was raised with these puppies and has become part of the pack. They have accepted him and love him, and he loves them back.
A local rescue group says only about 250 rabbits, guinea pigs, cats and dogs were saved from the huge shipment, likely victims of the online pet trade.
Please don't use glue traps
Today is the 1st Day of Fall! 🍁 As temperatures start to get cooler, animals will seek shelter in non ideal locations. We understand that people don’t want mice, snakes, lizards..in their home. However, please NEVER use sticky traps or rodenticides. They are inhumane and the animal suffers a slow and painful death. Instead use live traps, ultrasonic repellers, and unpleasant scents. Just a friendly reminder that we share this planet with our animal friends. #coexistpeacefully
Other humane options but not limited to the following:
*Rodent Repellent sprays sold online
*Irish Spring bars cut up
*Rolling Log Mouse Traps (no water)
*Catch & Release Mouse Traps

"Sad night last night but today is a brighter day. The ewe (female sheep) on the left lambed a stillborn and we were unable to resuscitate it. She cried most of the night longing for her lamb after we removed it.
The ewe on the right lambed twins last week, though they were very small. It seems that today she has given one of her twins to the grieving mother to raise as her own. This is a photo of them together with their new children."

S.I.S Saving Innocent Souls
This is what the other side of de-clawing a cat looks like... You literally cut the tips of their toes off. They will never walk correctly. They will inevitably get arthritis as a result.
They don't understand what happened to them. If you don't like claws: don't own a cat. The vet should try and talk everyone out of it and only does it because otherwise the cat will lose their home...
This is CRUEL and INHUMANE! We at SIS do not support declawing.

Leave the leaves!
"The less well-known larvae of the firefly, called “glow worms,” live in leaf litter and are voracious predators. They eat other insects, mites, earthworms, and even slugs and snails. The lights of the fireflies represent communication mechanisms."
