Pet of the week

December 10, 2005

Pet tip



With some forethought and a sincere commitment, pets can be a wonderful gift for your family. However, sometimes such holiday surprises don't work well, and an animal is returned. So, the Humane Society of Washington County recommends purchasing a gift certificate.

Another idea is to buy a stuffed dog or cat and have it sitting with the gifts and/or purchase some supplies for a new pet, such as a carrier, leash or bed, and have the stuffed animal all decked out with the new accessories. Attach a note to the display explaining that everyone will go together to pick out their new pet after the holidays.

To purchase a gift certificate, visit the Humane Society of Washington County at 13011 Maugansville Road, or call 301-733-2060.
