publisher’s note Wanted: Energetic Furry Godmother that will shower my pup with love and attention. Must possess skills in basic veterinary medicine, emergency preparation, training, canine counseling, proper exercise and nutrition. As pet owners, sooner or later we have to come to grips with leaving our baby in the care of “someone.” And, that “someone” is who we want, right? The tricky part is how to find our Furry Godmother. Enter the pumpkin-drawn carriage—AKA the Boarding & Pet Sitting issue of Petsguide. Inside, you’ll find the tools you need to find your perfect Godmother, from identifying the best type of care, to how to sniff out a good facility and a perfect sitter. If your pet has “issues,” we’ve got seven great tips on prepping for the big day––even what to do about separation anxiety…yours and hers. There are a lot of perks and benefits to hiring a professional sitter: socialization, training, mental stimulation, play time–– not to mention luxury suites with flat screen TVs. Your pet gets a little vacay; you get to go away without worry or guilt. Win. Win. And, when you get back, we’ve got 40 pages waiting for you jam-packed with all the pet resources you’ll ever want or need. In January, we lost Tootz, a member of our security team and the inspiration for Petsguide. She came to work every day for 13 years. If you ever wondered who to thank that this free resource exists, it would be her. Meet our new member, Franny (photo above). She’s stepping into some very large paws, and so far, she’s melted our hearts.

Everyone knows you and your Schnauzer are joined at the hip. But no matter how devoted the two of you are, there will come a time when you need to part. The reasons are plenty: You’re heading up a sales presentation in Omaha. You’re on your way to (finally) get that hiatal hernia fixed. You’re bunking with asthmatic Aunt Betty at your family reunion. Or you were caller number 23 and won an all-inclusive trip to the Cayman Islands.

feature article

By Audrey Eftychiou

As painful as it may seem, leaving your pet behind may be best for everyone. He’ll avoid the stress of travel while you spare yourself a hefty cleaning fee for sneaking him into your hotel room. (It’s been done.) While it’s tempting to find a neighborhood kid to care for Junior, hiring a professional is well worth the (affordable!) expense. Your four-legged friend will receive the scheduled, loving care and attention of a trained pro, with a few perks thrown in.

Sit. Stay.

The Boarding andPetSittingIssue Home, Sweet Home In-home sitters are perfect for elderly pets, very young kittens and puppies, or any pet that prefers the routine, comfort and solitude of home. (You know best!) Your pet will get daily one-on-one attention while avoiding the potential germs of a group situation. A professional sitter will feed your beloved on a schedule, provide fresh water, take your dog on a walk and clean up messes. Professional sitters can also give your pet medications, provide postsurgical care or take on household chores, like collecting mail and watering plants. Some will even spend the night. Beyond cats and dogs, you can find a sitter to handle everything from your beta fish to your chinchilla. Daily rates range from $15 to $35 per pet. See page 26 for a list, and page 29 for tips on finding a great one.

Home Away from Home Sites like dogvacay.com and sleepoverrover.com let you search for pre-screened, insured animal lovers in your zip code who can take in your pet while you’re away. An inexpensive alternative, with rates as low as $15 a night, this arrangement gives your pet attentive, round-the-clock care and, in most cases, the run of a comfy house. Choose a site that provides background checks, and then do a little homework of your own. Most sites let you communicate with potential sitters by more info at www.petsguidemagazine.com

email, with no fees or obligation until you make a reservation. And be sure to visit first to make sure they are responsible and reliable, and their home is clean and safe.

Boarding and Day Care Group stays are great for easygoing cats, social dogs, or pets needing help with socialization. This option is especially perfect for energetic pooches that chew up your furniture, tinkle on the carpet or terrorize neighbors when they’re bored. At an off-site facility, your pet will get more stimulation and supervision than he would at home. He’ll stay under the watchful eye of staff trained to spot health problems, in a facility specially built to foil Houdini-inspired escapes. He may even see that being away from you isn’t so bad. “Dogs learn a lot from each other,” said Sherri Loomer from Your Animal’s Best Friend. “Boarding is an opportunity to help your dog be more independent and easily adjust to new situations.” Get your pooch acclimated first with doggie day care at a pet store, kennel or boarding facility. According to the American Pet Products Association, it usually runs from $6 to $25 for a half day, or $12 to $38 for a full day. Look for a facility with at least one staff person per 15 dogs, where the pooches are grouped not only by size but by personality and play style. You’ll know it’s the right fit if Fido comes home happy and tired, ready to go again in the morning. For extended stays, there’s a range of choices. A basic kennel with chain-link fence and a cement

floor will run you $12 to $26 per day. A boutiquestyle boarding facility with extra perks will be $22 to $55, while ultra high-end hotels run from $40 to $100 per day. Expect to pay extra for one-on-one walks or play time, baths, medication administration or luxury add-ons. Zero in on a site that suits your pet’s personality. “Dogs that are more hyperactive have to have something going on all the time,” said Loomer. “You won’t want them in a cage because they’ll be miserable and bark the whole time.” Dogs who actually like alone time may prefer a plush resort where they can meditate. “Some don’t do well if they’re not with humans or other dogs,” Loomer added, “but some couldn’t care less.” Elderly pets, exotic animals or pets with special needs may do well staying over at a veterinarian’s office, many of which offer boarding. Katella Animal Clinic and Alicia Pet Care Center give all guests a complimentary exam, Yorba Regional Animal Hospital and Pet Resort has a doctor on duty 24/7, and OC Veterinary Medical Center offers a well-trained medical staff, plus boarding suites and pet TV.

Also see “Veterinary Services.” See ad on back inside cover; coupon on page 20. If You Cannot Care For Your Pet Most shelters accept pets brought in by owners who can no longer care for their pet, provided the owner lives within the region served by the shelter, fees may apply. The standard holding period for stray animals to be reclaimed does not apply to owner-surrendered pets, who may not be held long enough to be adopted prior to euthanization. Some rescue operations accept owner-surrendered pets, allowing the pets to be adopted. See “Adoption and Rescue,“ “Pet Assistance” and “Shelters.” Lost and Found Pets If you have lost your pet: 1) Have someone stay behind to field phone calls, and then drive the neighborhood with a flashlight (after dark), whistle, your dog’s leash and a current photo, combing parks, schools and open areas. 2) Call your local animal control office (see “Animal Control” in this section) for recent pick-ups and found pet reports. 3) Search www.petharbor.com, a service of the Humane Society, for listings and pictures of animals brought into shelters, updated hourly. If you have not found your pet after searching, register your pet as lost to receive an email when matching animals are listed by a shelter or registered as found on the site. 4) Blanket a five-mile radius with “Lost Dog” signs. Include a picture, breed, color and your phone number; listing a “reward” helps too. Leave flyers at houses on your street, shelters, petsupply stores, vet offices, groomers, dog parks, supermarkets, the post office and coffee shops. Post “Lost Dog” ads on Craig’s List and in the local newspapers for at least two weeks. 5) Personally visit all shelters in your area; neighboring cities often contract with different shelters. Visit as often as possible. If the shelter policy allows, leave your contact information with a recent photo of your pet; shelter staff cannot always provide notification, but most will provide as much assistance as possible. See “Shelters” for location information. 6) Visit www.amberalertforpets.com, www.findtoto. com, www.fidofinder.com, www.pipmypet.com, www. thecenterforlostpets.com and www.whistle.com, “Amber Alerts” for lost or stolen pets; fees apply. Tip: Always have your dog wear a license and ID tag, and invest in an ID microchip for quick returns. If you have found an animal without tags: 1) Check for ID tags or tattoos, or drive him to your vet’s office to have him scanned for an ID microchip. 2) You can also put him on a leash and tell him to “go

home!” He might lead you straight to his door, or to neighbors who know him. 3) By law you’re required to register him at the local animal shelter, because that’s likely the first place his owner will look. If you decide to search for the owner on your own, call and register the dog at local shelters and register the pet as found at www.petharbor.com; matching descriptions will be emailed to owners who have registered lost pets. 4) If you decide to take the animal to a shelter, you can find your city’s shelter on page 28. At the shelter, the animal will be scanned for microchip ID and logged. Generally, stray animals are held for an owner-reclamation period prior to being available for adoption. If you are worried about the life of the animal, always ask the shelter about their policy before leaving the animal. Tip: Many rescue organizations offer advice and assistance, you can find rescues on page 5. 5) If you cannot transport the animal to a shelter or find the owner on your own, call your local animal control office.

Identification GPS Collars - The GPS pet collar allows pet owners to locate their cat or dog anytime and anywhere. Most collars can locate a pet within a mile, display a pet’s position and movement, and track up to three pets simultaneously. The following websites offer GPS pet collars: www. gundogsupply.com; www.amazon.com; www. pettracker.com and www.secureapet.com. Microchips - Most veterinarians, shelters and rescues offer microchip identification and placement. The vet or organization chooses a microchip company that offers additional services. Contact your local vet or shelter (see “Shelters” and Low-Cost Services more info at www.petsguidemagazine.com


under “Pet Assistance”) for fee information. Also see “Calendar” for low-cost microchip clinics.

Serves Bellflower, Buena Park, La Palma, Lakewood and South Gate. www.seaaca.org

Pet Tags - For instant tags, automated machines may be found at larger pet stores. If you are looking for an alternative to the jingling “tintag,” consider slide-on tags, embroidered collars, wooden tags or rubber tag silencers.

Licensing: Why and How All dogs over the age of four months are required by law to be licensed and vaccinated against rabies. The licensing law was implemented as a heath issue related to rabies. It also keeps an updated record of ownership. Residents owning or having custody of any dog must license the dog within 15 days after the license becomes due. Residents must provide proof of a California-approved rabies vaccination to obtain a license (OCCO 4-1-70). License discounts are often offered for spay and neutered animals and pets of senior citizens. Applications and fees are usually available on city websites and can be obtained in-person or by mail.

shelters Government, non-profit or private animal shelters, commonly called “the pound,” provide  shelter and care for stray, lost or abandoned animals. All shelters offer healthy animals for adoption; there is usually a fee. Most provide pictures of adoptable and found/stray animals on their website. Animals are kept at the shelter until claimed by their owners; adopted to new owners; placed with a rescue or adoption organization; or euthanized. Most shelters accept animals from residents of specific cities only. For animal control services, including found/stray animals, please see “Emergency Resources.” Also see “Adoption and Rescue” for rescues that accept owner-relinquished pets or animals from the public.  Note: Shelters fall into two categories: open or limited admission. An “open admission” facility accepts animals from animal control and the public no matter the circumstance. “Limited admission” facilities have restrictions on incoming animals brought in by the public; however, they accept any animals brought to them by animal control. Most shelters practice euthanasia for a variety of reasons and circumstances. There are few true no-kill facilities. All shelters work with rescue groups, sanctuaries and other animal welfare organizations to find families for homeless animals. If you can no longer take care of your pet or if you found or lost a pet, see “Emergency Resources.” If you are concerned about the life of the animal, ask about the shelter’s policy before you take the animal in. Many adoption and rescue organizations offer advice and/or referrals about found/lost/stray animals (see “Adoption and Rescue” for a list of organizations). • Animal Assistance League of Orange County (714) 893-4393 www.aaloc.org The Animal Assistance League of Orange County is celebrating their 40th anniversary serving the commumore info at www.petsguidemagazine.com
