Waggin' Tails

Wondering what you can do with your dog in Hampton Roads? Get the answers here. I'll be discussing dog care, nutrition, training, play, and games to play with your dog.

Pet owners should be well informed when it comes to caring for their pet. Recalls on food ingredients, brand name foods, and toys make it necessary for pet parents to have information. But there is so much information it would make your head spin. Angie has a knack for getting and sorting this information. Having run two pet related businesses and having rescued two dogs so far, she has years of experience in pet care and training. For questions or comments, you can contact her at bigdogmom@mailpuppy.com.

We have some adoption events this weekend so you can go find a new furry friend. If you have furry friends at home, maybe you can help support the local rescues and shelters by donating items from their wish lists, donating money, or buying one of the items they have for fundraising.

A Taste of Heaven Sanctuary is having an adoption event tomorrow. You can meet some of the sweet pets they have at the Williamsburg Petco from 11 to 4. This little rescue also helps the Charles City County Animal Shelter. The shelter doesn’t provide rabies vaccinations, spay/neuter, or non-life threatening medical care. A Taste of Heaven Sanctuary raises funds to provide these services that help adoptable pets find their forever homes. So stop by and see them!

Rainbow Animal Rescue will be out with the dogs tomorrow. You can meet them at the Diamond Springs Road Care A Lot from 11 to 2.

The Cat Corner is having a special on all certified pre-owned cats over 8 months old. They have a great selection of makes and models. The below invoice pricing is just $50 down and 0% interest. They come with a multi-point inspection, standard 4 paw drive, and 100,000 purring warranty. You can meet them at the shelter at 85 Fulton Street in Hampton from 10 to 2, Tuesdays through Saturdays. Or check out their profiles at www.TheCatCornerInc.com. Some of them are at the Hampton PetsMart adoption room just waiting to meet you.

The Book Exchange is having a Charity Sale this weekend to benefit GO Rescue Pet Adoption. You can pick up some goodies for as little as 50 cents. So go find some good reading material or other media to brighten your day! The Book Exchange is located at 2720 North Mall Drive in Virginia Beach.

4 Paws Animal Rescue is having a Meet and Greet tomorrow. You can meet some of the adoptable pets at the Newport News Petco from 10 to 1.

Billy the Kidden Rescue is having a Silent Auction at Brixx Pizza on Sunday from 11 to 8. They have some great auction packages for you to bid on and items have been donated from community sponsors. Brixx Pizza is also donating a portion of sales to BTKR. So go have some great pizza and bid on some great items. You don’t need to be present to win either. You do need a copy of the flyer for the pizza fundraiser. I think you can find it on their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/BillyTheKiddenRescue/. They may have some at the restaurant too. Brixx Pizza is located at 1909 Landstown Centre Way in Virginia Beach.

That’s it for this weekend. Get out there and have fun with your pets!
