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!

Holiday Open House
We are hosting a Holiday Open House Saturday, December 6th from 10:00 – 5:00 and Sunday, December 7th from noon – 5:00. We will be offering refreshments, special adoption prices and wonderful pet gifts for your pet or the pet lover in your life. We will also be featuring a bake sale with some really scrumptious goodies! So stop by to pick up some sweet treats for you and the family. All proceeds benefit the 3,000 animals that are cared for at the shelter each year.

Please open your heart and your home to a shelter pet this holiday season. We have a large variety of animals with lots of love to give. Please come tour our facility, talk to the staff and take home the love of your life!

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.

Jan 01 - Jan 31
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.
