ADOPT Pet Shelter Opens New Veterinary Clinic in Naperville https://jolijaunter.com/adopt-pet-shelter-opens-new-veterinary-clinic-in-naperville/ Sat, 19 Nov 2022 18:33:38 +0000 https://jolijaunter.com/adopt-pet-shelter-opens-new-veterinary-clinic-in-naperville/ A Naperville animal shelter is moving its veterinary clinic to a new building, allowing it to double the number of animals it can help.

A Naperville animal shelter is moving its veterinary clinic to a new building, allowing it to double the number of animals it can help.

Chris Yelle, executive director of animal shelter ADOPT (Animals Deserving of Proper Treatment), said his current shelter clinic provides basic care and neutering services to animals in his care and those housed by relief organizations or owned by low-income families. .

But demand for vet services is growing because most private vets are too busy to provide relief aid for rescues and shelters, prompting the No-Kill Shelter to expand its offerings by moving its clinic to the 425 Industrial Drive, Yelle said. The site is across from where the shelter is.

“We hope we can provide a little more to our community and our rescue partners when it comes to veterinary care for their pets and for the groups that do what we do and adopt animals,” Yelle said.

The 2,000 square foot clinic currently under construction will include two exam rooms, an x-ray room and a surgery room for multiple concurrent surgeries as well as a recovery area, staff work area, reception area and offices.

The extra space, Yelle said, will allow ADOPT to help rescue groups with regular intake examinations of animals that may require X-rays, which they currently cannot provide.

“Many of our rescue partners request x-rays as it can be quite expensive for them to seek treatment in a private practice,” she said.

The expanded surgical suite will also allow ADOPT to perform twice as many surgeries, she said.

The plans aim to expand the types of veterinary services offered, such as adding heartworm treatments and dental care, and they will continue to offer vaccine and wellness clinics to the general public and families. low-income, Yelle said.

In the existing clinic, more than 2,000 animals have received treatment as of October 31, and “our hope would be to at least double that,” she said.

The shelter’s $400,000 expansion budget includes staff, construction and equipment costs.

“We’re trying to cut costs by reallocating a lot of the equipment we currently have,” Yelle said. “We’re looking at lots of ways to do that effectively so that we don’t get in over our heads, as far as it goes, because we always have to be aware of that.”

With the clinic moving, the shelter space at 420 Industrial Drive will open up so they can accommodate more animals, she said.

ADOPT Pet Shelter's new veterinary clinic at 425 Industrial Drive in Naperville will allow them to offer more surgical services to their pets as well as those housed by other shelters or owned by low-income families.

“We’re planning to have a real dog training room, so we’re making some changes here as well,” Yelle said.

The new clinic will need more vets and certified technicians, she said. And funding for the project is still needed, she said, “because the shelter operates strictly on donations and income from our adoptions and so on.”

There are naming opportunities — either a ward or the clinic itself — for someone who wants to make a larger donation, Yelle said.

Giving Tuesday is Nov. 29, and it’s a chance for people to help nonprofits like ADOPT, she said.

Donations can also be made by contacting Yelle at chris@adoptpetshelter.org or by going to www.adoptpetshelter.org.

A rule change in Penticton, BC has resulted in a significant adjustment for animal lovers in the South Okanagan town.

This week, the city council changed its animal control regulationsa decision that has been ongoing since 2021. Part of the amendment included a limit on the number of dogs, cats, and rabbits now allowed in each residence.

This limit: maximum three dogs, maximum five cats and maximum five rabbits, but no more than six animals in total in a residence.

A “perfect storm” has more Canadians abandoning pets. Here’s how to help

In a presentation to council, By-Law Services said the city has no by-laws in place regarding cats, rabbits, bees or chickens.

“So the intent was to start educating and enforcing more responsible animal ownership overall,” City Services Manager Tina Mercier told council on Tuesday.

The story continues under the ad

Council was advised that there will be some exceptions that will fall under provincial jurisdiction, such as deer, raccoons and urban rodents.

Councilor Amelia Boultbee asked how the by-law established the maximum number of pets per residence. Council was told that the bylaw looked at other communities and what they allowed.

“When we looked at other communities, some had a limit of, waiting where you were going, three dogs, five dogs,” Bigg said.

“We’ve had situations with cats where … we had no regulations. So you could have 50 cats. We had bunnies jumping on the road. We have no regulations. »

Bigg went on to say that they looked at everything – the area, the population, the noise – and against other regulations they found a maximum of six pets.

The story continues under the ad

The report to council says the city’s dog control program is currently in deficit ($29,817 in 2021), but operating costs have increased.

HERE are our Pets of the Week, courtesy of Oak Tree Animals’ Charity.

KID

LADDIE IS STILL UNDER EVALUATION, HIS RE-HOMING CRITERIA MAY CHANGE.

Laddie is an active youngster looking for a new home. At just 14 months old, this little guy is full of beans and will need some extra training.

He is super affectionate with people he knows and trusts and he likes to get as close to you as possible. He can be suspicious and anxious of strangers and likes to approach people on his own terms.

News and Star: Laddie.Kid. (Image: Oak Animal Charity)

Laddie can be noise sensitive so ideally we would like a home away from loud noises and busy areas.

After conducting dog tests, we think Laddie may be best suited to be the only dog ​​in the house. He cannot live with cats or other tempting furry animals.

Laddie could potentially live with older, sensitive children.

OLLY AND CHOUCHOU

Handsome Olly is a very confident boy: he loves being cuddled and playing with his toys. He has great manners that make him such a fantastic boy.

Scrunchy is a bit more shy than Olly but comes over to say hello and butt heads with you. We are looking to repatriate the two boys together or separately.

News and Stars:

Scrunchy may have outdoor access, but maybe it’s better for Olly to have more secure outdoor access because he could go home with everyone he meets because he’s so friendly!

Both Olly and Scrunchy could potentially live with another cat or dog and could live with children (6+).

From time to time both cats might suffer from flu symptoms and we are happy to discuss this further with any potential adopters.

All animals at Oak Tree Animals’ Charity have received comprehensive behavioral and veterinary evaluations, are neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated. Horses are passported. Dogs and cats housed by Oak Tree Animals’ Charity also receive 4 weeks of free pet insurance. For more information on repatriating an animal from Oak Tree, please call 01228 560082 or visit www.oaktreeanimals.org.uk.

The influence of influencer marketing https://jolijaunter.com/the-influence-of-influencer-marketing/ Fri, 11 Nov 2022 06:35:28 +0000 https://jolijaunter.com/the-influence-of-influencer-marketing/ To suggest, as Bob Dylan once did, that “the days when they change” would be as true today as it was when the song was first released in 1964.

To suggest, as Bob Dylan once did, that “the days when they change” would be as true today as it was when the song was first released in 1964.

Indeed, change is something of a constant and in the wake of the pandemic, it is only accelerating. Perhaps one of the areas where we are seeing the fastest development and demand for adaptation is in the field of marketing.

Gone are the days when a TV ad or newspaper ad was the only marketing asset a marketer could spend their time and budget on.

Today’s millennial and Gen Z demographic desires and demands engagement and authenticity from brands and companies jostling for their consideration. To meet this demand, a more refined and multi-faceted marketing strategy is needed.

One of the major factors driving a move away from the more traditional forms of advertising of yesteryear has been the growth and adoption of influencer marketing.

Although influencer marketing has not fully replaced other forms of advertising, such as advertisements and digital ads, many believe that influencer marketing has an advantage over other forms of advertising that do not. simply can’t be beat.

And that advantage is credibility.

Hubspot, an American developer and distributor of software products, suggests that the main reason for the shift from marketing investing their budgets in digital ads to investing in influencer campaigns is that influencer marketing works: “It uses tactics like word-of-mouth marketing and social proof, which are now essential aspects of any successful marketing strategy Customers trust their peers, friends and people they admire more than the companies that sell the products and services they buy and use.

Due to the human element of influencer marketing, there is an inherent degree of reliability that digital ads cannot compete with. The term “banner blindness” was first coined in 1998 by psychologist Jan Panero Benway, who conducted various website usability tests and concluded that users have a degree of selective attention by which they knowingly or unknowingly ignored information presented to them in online advertisements, particularly banner ads.

While there are ways to try and design digital ads that hopefully stand out from such a thing, a 2013 study by Infolinks found that 86% of consumers suffer from banner blindness.

It seems plausible to suggest that since then banner blindness and other challenges, such as ad blockers (Statista.com reports over 760 million people use ad blockers), traditional and digital ads remain significant and – most likely – increasingly difficult to overcome. .

While the benefits of influencer marketing are undeniable, from its high conversion rates and increased brand awareness to its potential for significant outreach to new audiences, there is still an argument to be made that the best approach is a combination of several. forms of advertising – one and a strategic influencer campaign that works alongside digital advertising, and even other more traditional forms, depending on the target audience.

And while the other elements of your marketing mix are up for debate as to whether you choose to include them, the one element that has become non-negotiable is the influencer element. Potential customers are already invested in what an influencer has to say because they chose to follow them because of common interests.

Source:

Human connection is a powerful tool when put to work to spread the message about your brand and products. Advocacy for you by an influencer puts a potential consumer further down the sales funnel faster than other ads, making them more likely to click on your digital ads or take notice of your TV ad, long before the seven times they usually need to hear your marketing message.

Times and consumer audiences are changing, and so are their behaviors and demands, which continue to evolve at a rapid pace. The benefits of having a human element in your marketing, an influential face that communicates your brand story on your behalf, is invaluable.

And while the allure of fame may seem too good to ignore, consider digging into up-and-coming nano and micro-influencers to stay current and reap the rewards of greater organic engagement, securing your brand and its message. . remain a priority today and in the years to come.

Many households are struggling to afford the rising costs of pet care. From soaring vet bills to dental costs for dogs, inflation has hit the price of pet owner.

According My family veterinarians, estimates suggest dogs can cost up to £30,000 to keep, feed and care for over their lifetime. Looking for money saving tips? As the cost of living continues to rise, we’re talking to the experts about how households can stay low.

Keep reading for everything you need to know…

1. Keep up to date on pest prevention

Prevention is better than cure for many reasons. From fleas to ticks and lungworms, it’s much cheaper in the long run to prevent these from becoming a problem. Lungworm treatment, for example, can cost up to £2,000.

2. Make sure your pet is vaccinated

Making sure your pet is vaccinated is an essential part of being a responsible pet owner. Experts recommend annual vaccinations to ensure your dog’s immune system is always prepared in its constant fight against disease.

3. Measure food carefully

“One in 14 dogs in the UK is obese, which means they are more likely to suffer from expensive-to-treat conditions such as arthritis, respiratory problems, heart disease, diabetes and certain types of cancer” , said Dave Tweedle, who works for the My family veterinarianssaid.

“Measuring your dog’s food is really important, rather than guessing. It will likely save you money on food in the short term and vet bills in the long run. It can also help your dog to live longer.”

Remember: Giving your dog too many treats is another common reason he can gain weight. Make sure your furry friend is eating properly and only give treats in moderation.

4. Get regular checkups

Regular physical exams by a veterinarian or nurse can detect subtle signs of discomfort or illness. Dave suggests putting your dog in a CT twice a year to check if something is wrong. Whether it’s an ear infection or skin irritation, you’ll save money in the long run by treating it early.

5. Keep their teeth clean

“It is estimated that around two-thirds of dogs over the age of three suffer from periodontal disease, which is an infection of the tissues surrounding the teeth – and expensive to treat. to become tartar,” says Dave. “The best way to prevent tartar buildup is to brush your teeth daily with a special toothpaste.”

6. Avoid unnecessary purchases

From expensive dog coats to designer bedding, one simple way to cut costs is to avoid unnecessary purchases. Invest in better quality items that will last longer, including glowing yarn to keep them safe on walks and raincoats for the winter.

7. Shop around for pet insurance

Find the best pet insurance that meets your needs. Dave says, “Unplanned vet treatments can be expensive and good insurance will cover everything from out-of-hours emergencies to cancer treatment. Do your research first and always compare policies.”

8. Learn to groom your dog at home

grooming your dog regularly is essential to ensure they stay clean, healthy and comfortable. Trimming their nails, cleaning around their eyes, and trimming their coat helps remove dead hair, skin, dandruff, and dirt.

All Dog Breed is different and has different needs when it comes to grooming methodology and frequency, so it’s important to do your research on your dog first. If in doubt, call a local groomer or veterinarian and ask their advice on how often you should groom your dog and if there are any dangerous areas for their breed to be aware of.

Read our guide to how to groom your dog at home.

9. Make your own dog toys

“Commercial toys are expensive and don’t always last long. There are lots of ways to stimulate your dog using cardboard containers, tea towels and old plastic bottles,” Dave suggests.

ten. Check if you qualify for low-cost treatment

charities, including the PDSA, blue cross and RSPCA, offer some pet owners free or subsidized treatment. To find out if you are eligible, visit their online eligibility checkers. If you’re worried about paying for veterinary care, talk to your veterinarian about suitable payment plans and treatments.

11. Neuter your dog

Spaying improves your dog’s overall health, while preventing uterine infections and mammary tumors. While most dogs give birth without veterinary assistance, caesarean sections are sometimes necessary, especially in flat-faced dogs.

12. Consider a pet food bank

Animal food banks provide free supplies pet food people in financial difficulty, potentially helping to prevent animals to be handed over to rescue centers or simply abandoned. If you’re having trouble getting pet food, it’s a good idea to consider visiting your local pet food bank. See here for a full list.

13. Learn Minor Health Care

“You don’t always have to rush to the vet if your dog isn’t 100%. It’s often quite simple to treat minor issues such as bee and wasp stings and mild diarrhea, or cut your nails and remove the ticks,” says Dave.

“If you’re worried about your pet’s health and aren’t sure if you should see a vet in person, try an online consultation first.”

14. Keep an eye out for free poop bags

Some councils are giving out free poop bags at libraries and other facilities, so keep an eye out for anything you can pick up. “It’s also worth shopping around as they vary in price – and don’t forget to check the price of diaper bags as they do their job just as well,” adds Dave.

15. Keep Pet Dangers Away

“One of the most common reasons dogs need expensive emergency treatment is if they swallow something toxic. Chocolate, raisins, herbs, household products, and human medications are among the main culprits. In many cases, dogs grab hold of these things because their owners have failed to keep them out of reach. Don’t make the same mistake.

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) — The Clark County Commission is closing in on a crucial decision on whether to ban the sale of popular pets — dogs, cats, rabbits and pigs — at local pet stores.

Many animal welfare advocates and corporate supporters made their case in public comments on Tuesday as the Commission was due to vote on the issue.

“I have personally contacted hundreds of people who have purchased dogs from pet stores – none are from shelters,” said one opponent of the proposed order. The draft ordinance would ban the sale of dogs, cats, rabbits and pigs in Clark County pet stores and give stores a year to comply.

“We need to stop animals coming into this town,” gs pet stores. What we forget are the backyard breeders,” said another opponent.

FOX5 told you how Commissioner Michael Naft proposed measure with the support of the Animal Foundation, which has suffered for months from a crisis with a flood of abandoned animals, overcrowded conditions, disease and an inability to accommodate strays.

“If all goes well, pet stores should be able to sell pets. At this time, we no longer need animals in the system,” said Dave Schweiger of the Bunnies Matter Rescue Group.

“We need to stop the animals coming into this town,” he said.

The public hearing and eventual vote have been postponed until Dec. 6, so county officials can continue their research into the impact on California since a similar law was recently passed.

How do you plan for your animal’s well-being if it survives you? https://jolijaunter.com/how-do-you-plan-for-your-animals-well-being-if-it-survives-you/ Sun, 30 Oct 2022 22:50:33 +0000 https://jolijaunter.com/how-do-you-plan-for-your-animals-well-being-if-it-survives-you/ It’s something that happens to all of us.

It’s something that happens to all of us. One day we will die. And for some of us, that might mean leaving a furry or scaly loved one behind.

But dying when you have a pet that survives you can be a complex affair.

According to Law Society of New South Wales, 63% of Australian households have a pet. And there are over 38 million pets across Australia.

UNSW Law and Justice Teacher Plum Vines said pets could be “very tricky legally” when considering best practices in a will.

Pets are “property”

The fundamental problem, Prof Vines said, is that pets are treated as property and not as legal persons in inheritance law. This means that while people may consider their pets family rather than property, the law doesn’t really make that distinction.

A pet is not a legal person. Therefore, people can’t leave ownership to their pet – you can’t leave ownership to another piece of property. A pet cannot manage the property either.

“In other words, we’re not going to see a dog sitting on a golden throne watching over an estate,” Prof Vines said.

“So people are trying to get around that or navigate around that as best they can. They will write in their will that someone will inherit a financial benefit in exchange for keeping the animal. But even that has problems.

Why are pets complex?

Some of these issues boil down to a basic random factor – the trust that exists between the person who writes the will and the person who will care for that animal in exchange for a financial benefit.

“The law cannot capture all potential outcomes or foresee all potential eventualities. Even if the pet owner requests in a will that someone care for their pet with no time limit, the keeper could technically care for the pet for a few days and then have it put down,” said Professor Vines.

“Essentially, if you’re relying on another person to look after the animal, it’s very difficult to enforce that after you die.”

Unfortunately, this can create scenarios where people might say in their will that they want their pet euthanized when they die. And according to Professor Vines, who studies wills, it happens.

What are the best things you can do?

Although the law cannot take into account all eventualities and take into consideration the random human factor, Professor Vines said there were certain things people could do to give their furry, fluffy or scaly friend the best luck in the afterlife of their owner.

A simple measure could be to leave the animal with a charity to care for the animal, while donating to that organization to help pay for caring for the animal.

“I’ve seen wills where someone may have left a donation, for example, to the RSPCA and they also left their pet to be cared for by that organisation. They are reputable organizations with a good track record in animal care.”

Professor Vines said it might be a good option for those with pets.

“You can contact the organization and leave them a gift in your will and register your pet under the inheritance program. And while most don’t require a donation, that’s a good thing to consider,’ Prof Vines said.

“And if you decide to leave a pet in the care of a friend in your will, make sure they are trustworthy. A lot depends on them,” she said.

Shelters in South Florida are working to transport shelter animals from the storm-ravaged West Coast to other states to help them get adopted. shelters affected by Hurricane Ian. So far they have taken animals to Chicago, Michigan and Indiana. “Florida has a reasonably high euthanasia rate, primarily for cats, but animals still lose their lives here more than in some other states; especially in the northeast,” Martin said. According to the data, Florida ranks among the five worst states in terms of euthanasia. Martin said transporting animals out of state is critical because most shelters in Florida are constantly operating at capacity. the 30-day wandering hold that pets are on once they’re in a storm-affected shelter. “It’s all because of what happened during Katrina,” Martin explained. “Everyone wanted to help when Katrina hit and they came down to New Orleans, and they moved the animals out of state very quickly, which made it difficult for people to find their pets.” While Martin said the 30-day detention helps more families reunite with their pets, it can present a challenge for shelters. “We have a 30 day detention in a shelter, which is usually 5 days,” she said. “So when you take that 5-day wait and turn it into a 30-day wait, you immediately hit space constraints.” These stresses are what Florida shelters, including Furry Friends, are working to alleviate by taking expired detainees. “It’s those who are most at risk that we’re trying to move,” she said. Martin said that no matter how healthy a small dog is, he will always be adopted before a big dog. “If you walk through our shelter or any shelter in any county in Florida, the same faces are looking at you and it’s basically 40+ pound dogs waiting for homes,” he said. she said. or adopt is by donating money, according to Furry Friends. “We want these little lives to be saved, but there are expenses involved,” Martin said. , Click here.

South Florida shelters are working to transport animals from shelters across the storm-ravaged west coast to other states to help them get adopted.

Mary Martin, Chief Operating Officer of Furry friends in Jupitersaid so far they have removed about 200 animals from shelters impacted by Hurricane Ian.

So far they have taken animals to Chicago, Michigan and Indiana.

“Florida has a reasonably high euthanasia rate, primarily for cats, but animals still lose their lives here more than in some other states; especially in the northeast,” Martin said.

According DataFlorida ranks among the five worst states in terms of euthanasia.

Martin said transporting animals out of state is essential because most shelters in Florida are constantly operating at capacity.

Another complication is working with the 30-day stray restraint that pets are on once they’re in a storm-affected shelter.

“This all happened because of what happened during Katrina,” Martin explained. “Everyone wanted to help when Katrina hit and they came down to New Orleans, and they moved the animals out of state really quickly, which made it difficult for people to find their pets.”

Although Martin said the 30-day suspension helps more families find their pets, it can pose a challenge for shelters.

“We have a 30 day detention in a shelter, which is usually 5 days,” she said. “So when you take that 5-day detention and turn it into a 30-day detention, you immediately hit space constraints.”

These constraints are what shelters across Florida, including Furry Friends, are working to alleviate by taking in animals whose stray hold has expired.

“It’s those who are most at risk that we’re trying to move,” she said.

Martin said that no matter how healthy a small dog is, he will always be adopted before a big dog.

“If you walk through our shelter or any shelter in any county in Florida, the same faces are looking at you and it’s basically 40+ pound dogs waiting for homes,” she said. .

According to Furry Friends, the best way for the public to get involved, if they are unable to foster or adopt, is to donate money.

“We want these little lives saved, but there are expenses involved,” Martin said.
