The Cherry Blossoms Aren’t Our Only Early Visitors This Spring

The Cherry Blossoms Aren’t Our Only Early Visitors This Spring

The trees are budding and blooming, weeds are sprouting and bugs are emerging, including insects that affect our pets such as fleas, ticks and mosquitoes that can transmit heartworm.

One of the advantages of a cold winter is that insects that affect our pets die off in great numbers in frigid temperatures. The warm weather coupled with high moisture has created an early season for bugs, and as they multiply over the coming weeks and months pet owners should take heed and take advantage of preventative measures to keep their pets healthy. Many veterinarians are recommending that these preventatives be started as soon as possible, if you do not use them year round.

Celebrate St. Catrick’s Day with WHS This Weekend

 Celebrate St. Catrick’s Day with WHS This Weekend

Many animals are born in the springtime, and as a result, the Washington Humane Society (WHS) takes in   an abundance of new and young animals in need in our adoption centers. To help cats during the especially busy “kitten season,” we are honoring cats with special needs over St. Patrick’s Day weekend, March 16-18. We are inviting the community to meet adoptable cats and kittens with minor special physical or behavioral needs and help them find homes.

Some cats who will be highlighted are long-time or senior residents, like BangBang, our pet of the week, while others may be finishing a winter cold. Most just require a bit of extra care and attention, and our adoptions counselors are prepared to provide adopters with all the advice and information needed to properly care for these pets and give them the great homes they deserve.

This center provides exceptional services, education, outreach, and advocacy for children ages 0-5 living with autism and other disabilities so they can live, learn, work and play in our communities.
