September is Responsible Dog Ownership Month!

Here at Letters from the Kennel, we will be celebrating by featuring a series of four blog posts containing tips, tricks, and trivia about dog ownership.

No one loves us like our dogs, and no one loves our dogs quite like we do. But just like with our human children, dog parenting is hard! It's easy to make mistakes, and oh-so-important to be educated. Owning a dog is a big responsibility! Making sure that you are fulfilling the role of responsible dog owner is critical to the health and well-being of your four-legged friend. As dog owners, there are also tangible benefits to our own health and well-being. Keeping your dog happy can help keep you happy.

So, how can you participate?

Have you had your sweet boy neutered? The Humane Society of Southern Arizona (HSSA) is neutering male dogs for a $25 co-pay (plus a mandatory $5 e-collar) during the month of September. Call the Spay and Neuter Clinic at 520-881-0321 and leave a message requesting an appointment. There are many benefits to spaying and neutering your pets, so don't miss out on this great deal!
