Breed Discrimination and What It Means for Dogs and Owners

Dog lovers should be aware of the acronym BSL, or breed-specific legislation. It is specific to certain types of dogs, discriminating based on appearance and a perception of being dangerous.

The Benefits of Fostering a Pet

Pet fostering is kind and selfless, but what exactly is it?
Fostering provides essential "temporary care to shelter animals who, for a variety of reasons, need to live in a home environment prior to adoption," according to the article, "What is pet fostering?" at Petsforpatriots.org.

How TNR Helps the Feral Cats in Neighborhoods

You may have seen free-roaming cats in and around your neighborhood, and you are not alone. Sometimes, the cats you see have owners who allow them to roam, sometimes they are lost, and oftentimes they are feral or free-roaming cats living in communities.

Employee of the month :
  Amanda Elder, Guest Services Attendant 

As a child Amanda Elder wanted to be a veterinarian, so it's not surprising that taking care of the dogs and cats at Second Home Pet Resort is her priority. As Guest Service Attendant, "my job is to take care of the pets of people who are going on vacation," she said. She is able to give them lots of love, take them for potty breaks and comfort them while their families are away.
While growing up, her family had a variety of animals. "I rescued any stray that we saw and took them home," she said. "We always found homes for them."
As she comes up on her one-year anniversary at Second Home, Amanda said, "The rescues are absolutely my favorite. I feel like I'm making a difference in some way."
Amanda also works in doggy day care and gets to work with those pet parents. "They know how much I love their pets," she said. "When their pets recognize you, it's so exciting."
Although Second Home is a temporary home for pets, it's truly a home for them while people are away. "We treat your pets like family; they are our first priority," Amanda said.
