The PetHub Community is about helping each other find resources as we guide our pets through their lives. As the proverb says, "It takes a village to raise a child," and certainly most of us look at our pets as our kids and we want them to grow in a safe and healthy environment. Please help us build this community by participating through asking & answering questions in the forums, suggesting articles and "Perks" you'd like to see offered and generally helping one another.

Quick view: Accidental Pet Theft: Don't Break The Bond
Rescuing vs. Stealing Animal theft happens more than I realized after I dug in and talked to people in “the biz.” I’m not talking about intentional theft of an animal but accidental theft. Yes, it’s a thing. We all love that good feeling we get when we’ve done a good deed or believe we’ve helped make the world a better place in some way. Most of us also know that sting from when we realize that what we thought was a good thing, actually caused harm or made a situation worse. That sting, for me, is usually because I didn’t have all the facts and I reacted with emotion instead of stepping back and taking stock of the situation. I bring this up because I’ve witnessed a few times now where someone (other than me) acted with good intentions, but hadn’t fully thought things through when it came to helping an animal. Two Examples A friend of mine told me once about a cat that came by daily to sit outside and watch their yoga classes. "He's so cute, friendly and healthy looking! He’s here almost every day. I think I should take him and give him a nice home." I had another friend recently say something similar, that a cat was found, it was really sweet, and she thought she might... (go to article)
Quick view: Pet Food Safety: What You Should Know
A healthy and balanced diet is important for everyone, including our pets. When we are buying, preparing, and storing our own food, we take into careful consideration how we do so. We want to prevent contamination, open food containers, dirty messes, things going bad, etc. But how often do you consider those same standards for your pets? Commercially prepared pet food is one of the most highly regulated and tested, needing to meet local and government standards, including approval from the FDA. And while we can’t control what happens at that level, as pet parents, we can make sure to continue the proper handling of our pet’s food at home to ensure everyone is happy & healthy. Purchasing Pet Food What kind of food you buy for your pets should be at the discretion of you and your veterinarian (if you have any questions about the right food for your pets, make an appointment with your vet to discuss the best options). No matter what type of food you are purchasing for your beloved fur family, the same important rules apply. Some of the most important things to consider when buying food for your pets are: Buy only products that are in good condition. Do not purchase any... (go to article)
Quick view: PetHub Staff Picks: Holiday Pet Gift Guide 2019
PetHub Staff Picks: Holiday Pet Gift Guide 2019 With how quickly the pet industry is growing, the world is full of paw-some pet products - everything from food to toys to gadgets. But it goes without saying that some of these are better than others. Whenever you go looking for new things for your furry family, you want the best & probably look at reviews, but how do you know which ones to trust? Working in the pet industry, the human folks & fur folks at PetHub HQ have seen, tested, and loved lots of different products. We know the in’s & out’s of what’s good, what lasts, and what is just plain awesome. So we have put together a list of some of our staff (both human & animal) favorites when it comes to products for your pets. Litter Robot Hands down, the Litter Robot is the most amazing thing EVAH...but it is crazy-daisy expensive (worth it IMHO, though). Not only does it scoop the poop for you, but you can also connect it to an app and monitor bathroom habits -- and if you have kitties like ours (two whoop-whoops for cats with urinary issues, amiright??)...this feature is supaw helpful. Find it HERE!   Catit Flower Drinking Fountain Okay, for those... (go to article)
Penny Memorial
Quick view: Today I Said Goodbye
I said goodbye to her today. Perhaps she would have lived naturally for a few more weeks, or even months, but it would not be a peaceful passing, but rather a painful, scary and drawn out one, filled with even more medication and vet visits, and I just didn’t want that ending for her. So Penny passed away today, in my arms, surrounded by the rest of her pack, in her home, in her favorite bed (appropriately designed with black, white and red sugar skulls), peacefully and without pain and fear. My husband and I always joked that Penny would not leave a beautiful corpse, because she lived life fully and had a multitude of scars and ailments to prove it. When we dressed her a few years ago as Frankenpenny and then this year as Darth Penny for Halloween, they were very fitting costumes -- one of our PetHub employees actually did a poster featuring Penny as Darth Penny. My brother told me earlier this week when I let him know we were saying goodbye to her today, that he had been convinced that Penny was going to be the world’s first cyborg-dog and live forever -- if only that were possible, huh?      I tried to count up how many surgeries she’s had, and I think she...

Quick view: Animal Shelter Appreciation Week 2019: What Our Fr...
In 1996, The Humane Society of the United States founded National Animal Shelter & Rescue Appreciation Week. This week is to help encourage people to learn more about their local shelters, what they are doing to help animals all over, and to help people learn how they can help too! According to the HSUS, “Approximately 3,500 animal shelters across the United States serve the estimated 6-8 million homeless animals who need refuge each year, and many more animals find themselves in need of the services provided by local rescue groups”. The workers and volunteers that make up these shelters & rescues deserve all the appreciation for the great work they are doing to find forever homes & care for as many animals as possible. We wanted to take this time to show some appreciation to some of the amazing shelters that work with PetHub and to highlight some of the amazing programs and efforts they are doing.   ANCHORAGE ANIMAL CARE & CONTROL Kitten Social Hour: fostered kittens visit with residents of an assisted living home. Pet Food Bank: dog and cat food is distributed as needed and as available. Monthly Pet Supplies Giveaway: we receive lots of used... (go to article)
