A friendly reminder and warning for those of you with kids and dogs. It is September and the start of football season, it is also the time of year when copperheads are born.
The baby snakes are born with venom and ready to defend themselves. The momma snake generally gives birth to about 8 – 10 of these critters, so if you find one there are others around. The babies will keep those greenish/yellow tips on their tails for about a year. These snakes are not generally aggressive but will bite if you are unfortunate enough to touch or step on one. Do not reach under bushes, around rocks, or even flower pots without looking first. They like damp places so beware, even under children’s toys and dog dishes!
One of our foster moms has requested some can covers and grain free treats that all of our rescues seem to love and tolerate well no matter how sensitive their tummies! Rescues are just like kids, you find something that works and stick with it!
We have added the items to our Amazon Wish List! We still have 8 of the Poms rescued in May avail and we also have a Miniature Pinscher.
We have a full house! Or should I say “houses”! 6 foster homes have been involved with this “puppy mill” rescue. Favors have been called in! 3 girls have been adopted but we still have 1 girl and 6 BOYS looking for homes!
Everyone has needed vet care, dentals, neuters and spays. They are mostly seniors so the adoption fees will not cover all the vet bills.
If you can, please consider making a donation to help with their care using the “Donate Now” button on our Home page.
