A New Year's Resolution You Can Keep

Make 2007 a better year for pets and people by taking to heart a New Year’s resolution for your best four-legged friend. The Oregon Humane Society encourages everyone to adopt the Top Ten Resolutions below to improve the lives of pets, people and homeless animals.

Repeat after us: In 2007, I resolve to show my love for my four-legged companion.

Here’s how:

  1. Get a microchip ID for my pets to go along with their ID tags
  2. Get exercise by walking my dog every day
  3. Play with my cat every day
  4. Remember to keep my pet fit and trim and refrain from using food as love
  5. Pack a disaster preparedness “go pack” for my pet, just in case
  6. Teach humane treatment of animals to my children (you can even encourage their school to invite the Oregon Humane Society or The Humane Society for Seattle/King County to make a classroom presentation)
  7. Schedule my pet’s annual veterinarian appointment
  8. Volunteer my time and talents at a local animal shelter to help homeless pets
  9. Encourage friends, family, co-workers, and acquaintances to have their pets spayed or neutered
  10. Give the gift of compassion with a monetary donation to my local animal shelter

From CityDog, have a safe and happy New Year!
