HFA is taking part in educating the next generation. Dogs and Cats Colorado Style Magazine is featuring two great short stories on responsible animal ownership starting with vaccinations to spay and neuter, to obedience classes, to teaching your dog to go potty outside and more. HFA is assisting the author in going to local Colorado elementary schools to read these stories to children.
‘We have a foster dog that is great with children, a good visual addition to the story and patient for question and answer time for the kids. We have done this at one school so far and the response from the librarian was tremendous. She allowed us to take some library time to read to the children, and then she had some books on pets for them to check out. She thought the kids were very responsive and enjoyed the stories.’
If anyone has a great relationship with their children's school or has a name and number of someone I can contact at their school, we would love to come in and do this. We would need at least 30 minutes of time to read and answer any questions.
Animal ID microchips: The City of Brighton Citizens and surrounding areas are welcome to make an appointment to have their dog's and/or cat's micro chipped with a Home Again chip, the fee for the implant is $20.00 which includes chip registration with the Home Again database. The Home Again microchip implant is a great way to insure your animals return home when they become lost without a collar and tags. All shelters, humane societies and veterinary clinics scan animals coming in to identify an animal that has been implanted. You can view more information on the City of Brighton website.
