Looking for something fun this weekend? We got you covered with events this Saturday in Euless and Murphy.
In Euless we will be offering 20 microchipping for your pet at Fall Pet Fair & Garage Sale- Trinity High School from 10:00 to 2:00pm. There will be low cost vaccinations, dog bath, Nail trim and fun vendors. All funds raised will support the G.A.P. clubs work saving animals at the Euless Animal Shelter. This is a great bunch of young ladies working hard for their community so come on out and support them.

In Murphy we will have some personal danes and a booth at Murphy Maize Days While Maize days runs until 8:30pm we will only be there until 2:00pm.

So got up early to TWO surprises.... Together we raised over SIX THOUSAND DOLLARS for GDRNT. This is awesome and big Hugs to all. Now the second is not so sweet.... my email was hacked and as a result some of you in my address book, or danemail got slammed with spam... We have fixed it but some legitimate emails may have been lost in the fix... if you emailed me last night and don't hear back today please hit me up again...Sorry to those who got slammed....

I wanted you guys to see some great before and afters...

Why NTGiving Day is Important to GDRNT

GDRNTNorth Texas Giving Day Link
Today I was able to approve medication, testing and treatment for a diabetic dane who just came into the program; last week I was able to approve skin biopsy on another; two intakes needed expensive antibiotic's; last week I was able to approve treatment for a sweet female who needed emergency treatment for a now diagnosed kidney infection.... I could go on but you get the idea.

Tomorrow is North Texas Giving Day. The last two years we have been able to raise more than 5,000 in one day. Donations of $25 or more can be made 6 a.m. to midnight via GDRNTNorth Texas Giving Day Link. Those donations will be amplified from a pool of more than $2 million dollars in bonus funds and prizes to nonprofits across North Texas.

So if you are participating in GDRNTNorth Texas Giving Day Link please consider GDRNT. If you are on Facebook please share our post with our link, like the post and lets see if we can generate some action.

NTGiving Day is This THURSDAY, Make your Donation do More.

NTGiving Day 2015 is Thursday, September 17 from 6am Central to Midnight. This event has become one of our most important and largest single day fundraisers of the year. On September 17, 2015, donations of $25 or more can be made 6 a.m. to midnight to GDRNTNTGiving Day 2015. Those donations will be amplified from a pool of more than $2 million dollars in bonus funds and prizes to nonprofits across North Texas.

Our fosters, volunteers, board and officers are all volunteers and receive nothing but slobbery kisses as payment. 94 cents of every dollar goes straight to medical and veterinary costs for the dogs in our foster program. Additional costs are crates, necessaries, insurance, PO box, printing and other miscellaneous business expenses.

A Day to Remember

The effects of that tragic day touched many of us in Texas and across the globe. Today please take some time to remember those we lost and those who served so valiantly in the days, months and years since.

5 Facts about Heartworms

I am always surprised at how little pet owners know about this devastating disease and how easy it is to reduce the risk to your dog or cat. If you are not currently using year round heartworm prevention please talk to your veterinarian. Texas has a crazy long mosquito season and even indoor pets are at risk...

Baby it's HOT Outside: Recognize and Treat Heatstroke in Dogs

By now I would hope everyone has the message ... DO NOT LEAVE YOUR PET IN THE CAR and HOT Pavement can BURN your Paws.... but these are not the only ways the heat can seriously harm your pet. Something as easy as an evening walk may be too much. It is important that you know the signs or heat stroke, how to treat it and the hours of your vet/location of the after hours vet. My biggest tip.. right now stop and save in your phone your veterinary office phone number and the closest after hours veterinary office with directions. In the meantime please review the signs of heat stroke and what you need to do before you go to the veterinarian.

Not familiar with the signs of heatstroke... this is a pretty good video by Greg Martinez DVM.

Homemade Dog Toys

Toys can be an important part of your pets enrichment and training. Working your dogs brain is just as important as working their body.. and can be just as tiring. With the heat of summer upon us why not try some DIY games and toys with your dog. Barkpost has put together a list of 33 toys that are easy and inexpensive to make. Now some of these I would not recomend for your bigger dog.. and not all toys are suitable for all dogs..and ALL dogs should be supervised to assure safety.
