Join us at the Animal Emergency Center of North Fulton for a safety event to help educate the public about pet fire safety and disaster preparedness.

Home fires are the most common disaster and also the most preventable. According to the United States Fire Administration, an estimated 500,000 pets are affected annually by fires.

The best way to protect your pets from the effects of a fire is to include them in your family plan. This includes having their own disaster supply kit as well as arranging in advance for a safe place for them to stay if you need to leave your home. In the event of a disaster, if you must evacuate, the most important thing you can do to protect your pets is to evacuate them, too.

The event is open to the public and will be held Sunday, July 13 from noon until 4 p.m. There is no charge to attend the event, so come on down and enjoy a nice day with your pets and family.

Local American Red Cross, fire and police departments will talk with attendees about how to stay safe, and how to evacuate those you love during life threatening disasters. Other scheduled guests include the Georgia SPCA, q100, Home Depot Kids Workshop, Camp Bow Wow, Top Dogs, Heather Gaston Agency Insurance Professionals, as well as many other local pet friendly businesses. There will be activities for the entire family. Pets are welcome, but dogs must be kept on a leash.

Animal Emergency Center of North Fulton is hosting this event in the parking lot outside their facility at 900 Mansell Road in Roswell.

Willow is the Cat of the Week

Willow is a one and a half year old domestic shorthair/mix.

Willow is a beautiful young cat, very sweet and loving. She is a Dilute Calico, which is like a watercolor painting, with muted colors all seeming to run together — just lovely. If you are looking for a young lady cat who is just a bit older than a kitten, come meet Willow. She would love a forever home with a nice sunny window and a comfortable lap for the evening.

Willow is at the Shelter, just waiting to meet you. Our cat adoption fee includes spay/neuter surgery, disease testing for FeLV and FIV, age-appropriate vaccinations, deworming, flea/tick prevention, heartworm prevention, microchipping, and 30 days of pet insurance. You can print out the adoption form and bring it with you to the Shelter.

Pinky is the Dog of the Week

Pinky is an almost-6-year-old short-hair Chihuahua/mix.

Pinky is just a tiny little thing. She is very friendly and sweet and wants nothing more than to be a companion where she can get lots of attention and petting. If you are looking for a very small dog who is just as sweet as can be, Pinky may be just the one for you.

Pinky is living with her foster and gets along nicely with other dogs and cats. If you’d like to meet Pinky, give foster Mom Carol a call at 678-350-5386 and she will arrange a meeting. Our dog adoption fee covers spay/neuter surgery, testing for heartworm (and treatment, if necessary), up-to-date vaccinations, deworming, flea/tick and heartworm prevention, microchipping, and 30 days of pet health insurance. You can print out the adoption form and bring it with you to the Shelter.

Here’s an update as promised on the two puppies with demodex mange we rescued a few days ago. Loving foster Katie is cuddling with Jessie; Jessie and Mowgli are snoozing in their warm, clean bed. So much of fostering is just providing the basics: good food, a clean, warm place to sleep, a little attention. You could do it, too, and we desperately need foster homes for some of our puppies and kittens! Contact Gail at 678-362-2036 or for more information. #instacollage

This is little Red Ridinghood, a super sweet 12-week-old female orange tabby. She was found infested with 3 wolf worms, including one lodged in her throat, which inhibited her breathing. She underwent surgery recently to remove the parasites, and she was treated for an allergic reaction, swelling, dehydration, and possible infection. Her medical bills will total $500, but how could we turn her away?
Wolf worms (or screw worms) infect all kinds of animals, including pet cats and dogs. Of the genus Cuterebra, wolf worms are the parasitic larvae of the Cuterebra fly. The wolf worm enters the body through the pet’s mouth, nose or a wound in the skin. It then migrates through the pet’s body and comes to rest at a location under the skin. When it nears maturity, the wolf worm may be up to an inch long and is easily visible with the naked eye.

Will you help with the cost of Red Ridinghood’s veterinary care? Any amount will help and is greatly appreciated!

SAVE THE DATE! On Saturday, September 6 the Georgia SPCA hosts our most luxurious gala event of the year. Come see and be seen; and support the important work of the Georgia SPCA. Enjoy an evening reminiscent of Parisian nightlife, featuring dinner, cocktails, dancing and a spectacular doggie haute couture fashion show!

The evening includes:
Dinner catered by Proof of the Pudding
Dancing with Mr. Christopher of Audiocake (DJ)
Pat Wallace sponsoring with AAA parking valet.
An exciting silent auction
A doggie fashion show crafted by international designer of animal couture, Linda Higgins.
The highlight of the evening might just be the dogs who will walk the “catwalk” to model designer fashions created by Linda Higgins of “Classy Doggie Designs”. Linda shows her couture canine fashions at fashion week events all over the country and is excited to be participating in “An Evening in Paris.” Linda’s fashions have been featured on the front cover of Chihuahua Connection and Pet Style magazines, in the movie Beverly Hills Chihuahua and can be found in boutiques all over the world. Linda’s design won the “Best Dressed in Show” award at the 2013 New York Pet Fashion Show.
