Easter Bunnies

in Special


In Northern Virginia, every year bunnies are purchased for Easter gifts! Marketed by the pet industry, baby bunnies are promoted as basket stuffers for Easter morning, as cute,
soft, gentle pets for kids to play with. Inevitably the novelty wears off and the reality of long-term pet care sets in. Before buying a bunny click HERE to consider the important facts.


Save a life and don’t buy an Easter bunny. If a person must have a rabbit, rescue an altered rabbit from a local animal shelter or from a rabbit rescue group. A listing of available rabbits nearby is found at

Green Tips for Tuesday!

in Green Tuesday,Uncategorized

Here are some helpful “green”  tips to help protect our planet. Today’s tips are coming from the ASPCA website. You can see the whole article at

Green Tip #1 – Use vinegar instead of bleach when cleaning up pet spots on the carpet. Vinegar should be diluted and works well killing bacteria and mold that can cause odors.

Green Tip #2 – Buy bulk sizes of your pet supplies. You waste less gas with the lesser amount of trips to the store and create less trash from the packaging.

Green Tip #3 – Be sure to recycle all pet food cans and bottles. Use filtered water in place of bottled if you can, and buy bigger cans for less waste and to save some money.

“Say hello to sweet, gentle Walter, a 7 year-old male Chihuahua who only weighs about 10 pounds. He was rescued from a hoarding situation and would love a safe, quiet home with some TLC to allow walterhim to breathe and come out of his protective shell. Learn more about this little trooper here, or better yet, come out Saturday, April 12th to Weber’s Pet Supermarket to meet dogs like Walter who are available for adoption.” Click HERE for more information.
