PSA from TDIAO – NEVER leave your dog unattended!

A public service announcement from Thank Dog I Am Out founder Susan Patterson warning dog owners not to leave their dog unattended at any time. Dog thefts have been on the rise in the Vancouver area, and are only getting worse. Dogs are being stolen and re-sold, kept as companions and or shipped out of province to be re-sold as a rescue. Keep your dog safe – NEVER leave them unattended.

Please think of others when thinking about lighting off fireworks of any kind. Dogs have very sensitive hearing and are very afraid of fireworks.
