Did you know that this week is Pet Appreciation Week? This week has been set aside in appreciation of the pets in our lives.

Pets In Cars

During the hot, summer months, please consider the safety of your pet when you take them for a ride in the car. Remember that even if you’re planning on running into a store for just a minute, it’s too dangerous to leave your pet in the car. Just a few minutes in a car during the summer months can raise the temperature to unbearable levels. Exposure to such extreme heat can result in heatstroke, which can cause brain damage or even death. Leave your pets at home in the air conditioning this summer.

So if you know of any pets in need of good homes, take to Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and get the word out this June!

Farmer's Market Summer Hours

If you enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables but don't have the time, energy or space for a garden of your own, why not visit a local community farmer's market? Fresh fruit and veggies are great for both you and your pet. Especially if your veterinarian has recommended your pet lose some weight. Carrots, green beans and asparagus are great to give your dog as a treat instead of the usually doggie cookie. Here is a list of some local farmer's markets: 

-Caste Village Shopping Center on Monday 3pm-7pm
-Bethel Park Community Center on Tuesday 3pm-7pm
-Carrick Shopping Center on Wednesday 3:30pm-7:30pm
-Pleasant Hills Presbyterian Church on Thursday 3pm-7pm
-Mount Lebanon Uptown Business District on Saturday 9am-noon
