Nov 01 - Nov 30
Adopt A Senior Pet Month
Please think about adopting a senior pet! Senior pets bond very strongly with adopters. Many seem to understand they have been given another chance at a happy life and are grateful for the opportunity to love someone and be loved in return. They like to share quiet moments, are already trained and don't chew or scratch everything in sight. Instead of passing by them in the Shelter, stop for a cuddle and you may find the most wonderful companion possible! Save a life, adopt a Senior pet!


Nov 21 - Nov 23
Paws N Claus
Second of two consecutive weekends!

The Holidays are upon us and so is Paws N Claus. What a wonderful way to capture special times with your family or pets. A spectacular new set will give you a beautiful backdrop to create those family memories. Gather everyone up and come on out for your holiday photo shoot. Bring the pets or leave them home and get a great people only photo!

Paws N Claus will be held on two consecutive weekends this year, Friday, November 14th through Sunday the 16th and then again Friday, November 21st through Sunday the 23rd. That way you have twice the opportunities to get your holiday photographs and have two times the fun as well! We will be at Spalding Center at 4131 Gordon Drive. (Next door to Earl May Garden Center).

We invite you to bring your family, your pets, or whoever you want included in these one of a kind photographs. Professional photographers will take pictures against a beautiful new backdrop perfect for Christmas cards, holiday giving or a lifetime of memories for your enjoyment. Gift certificates for Paws n Claus sittings are also available for early holiday gift giving.

The price is still a great deal at only $30.00! You will receive three printed photographs and a digital CD copy of the photos for you to use however you like. To book appointments call the Shelter at 252-2614, ext. 7 from 10am to 5pm Tuesday through Saturday or noon to 5pm on Sundays. Call early to get the best times available!

Pet License Time!
A new year brings new pet license time. Sioux City pet licenses expire on December 31st every year. We are asking all pet owners to license their pets and obtain the excess animal permit if necessary. The best enforcement of the ordinances pertaining to our pets is through voluntary compliance. Please contact the City Clerks Office at (712) 279-6311 for more information on pet licensing or the excess animals permit.

Pet-tacular New Year
Make it a pet-tacular new year for Fido, Fluffy and all your pets. Have a great and healthy 2015!

New Year's resolutions for pet owners:

1. Take your pet to a veterinarian at least once a year for exams and vaccinations.
2. Be consistent with health care. Do year-round, monthly heartworm preventative.
3. ID your pet, whether it be a tag or a microchip.
4. Give your pet love! They get bored and destructive without attention.
5. Check your pet's hygiene. Limit fat, exercise and groom regularly, limit treats.
6. Spay and neuter your pet. It decreases overpopulation and has health benefits.
7. Make sure collars fit properly, check often. Two fingers need to fit underneath.
8. Pet proof your house. Keep poisons, plants, electrical cords out of reach.
9. Learn a fun fact about your pet's breed. Research traits before adopting it.
10. Donate money or items to our Shelter.
