What type of animals do you receive at the CVACF?
I know it's important to get my pet "fixed," but I don't have a lot of
money or a veterinarian. Could you refer me to one that is low cost? ... Why do I need to license my dog or get my pet vaccinated? Welcome...
The Chula Vista Animal Care Facility thanks you for your interest in adopting an animal. Adoption is a lifetime commitment, and our staff is eager to help you find the perfect companion. Selecting a pet that's just right for you can be one of life's most rewarding experiences. All of our animals are spayed or neutered before they leave our facility.

To ensure a perfect match, here are a few tips to keep in mind.
Read about the different breeds of dogs and cats so you can select the one that matches your personality and fits into your lifestyle.

Wildlife Rescue Information
Chicago may be one of the largest metropolitan areas in the country, but a surprising number of wildlife populates both the city and the suburbs. Do not try to tame them or make them into pets. Wild animals cannot be domesticated, nor do they want to be. For complete information on how to humanely live with and assist wildlife in your neighborhood, Red Door Animal Shelter recommend two books: Wild Neighbors: The Humane Approach to Living with Wildlife Here is a brief guide to the best ways of dealing with wildlife you might encounter: RABBITS
Usually the mother rabbit only comes at dawn. If you accidentally disturb a rabbit nest, try to reconstruct it as best you can. Usually the nests are hidden under leaves, twigs and debris, or located under shrubs. But sometimes you will find a rabbit nest right in the open. You can move a nest up to 10 feet from its original spot if that will provide more cover for the nest. Cover it over with leaves, twigs and grass clippings. The mother rabbit will find it. It is a myth that rabbits will abandon their babies once human beings have touched them.

Pet Adoptions How To Adopt Pet Care Tips Humane Education ... Home Wildlife The Department of Animal Care and Control responds to calls within city limits regarding injured wildlife or wildlife causing an immediate public safety hazard. Living in harmony with wildlife in our community often poses some challenging situations to citizens. We have included useful information you may need from the professionals regarding humane alternatives to dealing with nuisance wildlife. Keeping garbage can lids secure, garage doors closed, and possibly suspending your bird feeding activities for a while may be necessary. (never do this in late fall or winter) Humane live traps are available from the department if a wild animal has set up housekeeping in your attic. Call 427-1244 to check on current availability. Wildlife that have actually entered and are currently accessible in the living space of your home can be removed by an Animal Control Officer. Live traps are not dispersed for nuisance wildlife living outside, as exclusion tactics are the best method of dealing with these animals rather than relocation. Injured wildlife may be brought to the shelter for pickup by licensed wildlife rehabilitators. Do not put yourself at risk for a wild animal bite, if there is concern regarding a bite, call us to pick up the injured animal.

What you can do
  • Raccoons and Skunks also carry roundworms so occasionally check your pets stool for the parasite. *This is critical because raccoon roundworm, if contracted by people, can cause permanent brain damage and even death. Secure trash can lids with rope, bungee cords or chains. If necessary stake cans to the ground. Cap chimneys and plug siding holes after making sure no nests are inside. Make sure garden fences are buried 6-8 inches under ground, or attached to a board that is sunk below the surface.

Pets Welcome This phrase means a great deal: All significant family members can share the experience of the Stanford Inn. We have always traveled with our dogs, Little One, Hopscotch and Gypsy, and extend welcome to your friends here. Over the years we have had a variety of non human visitors: dogs and cats, of course, but also iguanas, parrots, Vietnamese pot belly pigs, and a tortoise. Pets stay for a modest charge. If yours is a dog, you'll find a welcoming treat, stainless steel food and water dishes, "dog sheets" to protect the furniture so that your friend can join you, and Intelligent Products pick-up bags. Hopscotch Our rules are simple. Please do not leave your pet unattended in your room without letting us know in case he or she is uncomfortable in new surrounding. We have had doors chewed and badly scratched. Guests have taken care of damage, but the issue is that their pets were unhappy. We find that dogs are most happy in their accompanying their owners when exploring the area. Our weather is cool and with windows left open, no harm should come to them.

    Box Turtle Hibernation Any box turtle that has recently been ill should not Hibernating Indoors Box turtles can be placed in a protected box (wooden or cardboard) partially filled with clean dirt (potting soil is recommended). The soil should be kept slightly damp. A layer of dead leaves or crumpled newspaper should cover the dirt A shallow dish of water should also be provided. The box can be placed in a cool area (such as a garage) and should be maintained rodent-free. The hibernating turtle should be checked periodically. During warm spells, the turtle may temporarily come out of hibernation; food should be offered at these times. Hibernating Outdoors: The hibernation period begins with inappetence in October or November in southern California and ends in March or April, depending on environmental conditions in the spring. Box turtles may be allowed to hibernate in the corner of a dog house or other similar shelter if they are allowed to burrow under some loose cover. Dead leaves or crumpled newspapers can be provided for this purpose. An alternative arrangement involves providing a protected area with loose dirt and a covering layer of dead leaves or dried lawn clippings that cannot be flooded by winter rains. Box turtles may emerge during warm spells, during which time they may feed. Food should be provided at these times as well as a shallow dish of water for soaking, if the turtle chooses to do so. Box turtles hibernating outdoors should be protected from flies, ants and predatory marauders, such as dogs, cats, rats, skunks and opossums.

    The Nightmare
    Curiosity: Not Just for Cats
    The shock collar often proves effective in teaching a dog to avoid porcupines, skunks, opossums and other vermin (including potentially rabid raccoons). There are also some things you can do in the field. To remove odor, I have no personal experience on which to report. Various sources recommend a bath with tomato or lemon juice or vinegar. Crushed charcoal may also aid in sucking up the smell.
    Traps, Snares and Wire
    Make sure the pair of pliers you carry in your hunting coat has a cutting edge for wire. They may help save a dog pinned in a fence by its hind legs, or caught in a snare, the latter of which can be lethal. Set by trappers for coyotes or foxes, snares work by suffocating an animal. Once your dog is caught around the neck, the only way to free it is to cut the snare. If your dog blunders into a leg-hold predator trap, use the dowel and tape to muzzle him, then gently open the trap and remove the dog. Check the animal for cuts and potentially broken bones.

    Animal News Animal Tales Animal news Annual Report Animal Services - Wildlife Wild animals are creatures of nature to be respected and enjoyed. We are fortunate to live in an area with such an abundance and variety of wildlife. Many of the recommendations mentioned here involve exclusion of wildlife. We believe, however, that understanding the habits of wildlife animals and using a few preventive measures will allow you to coexist more closely and compatibly with most wildlife creatures and truly begin to appreciate their value. Learning to live with wildlife The Pacific Northwest is graced with an abundance and variety of native mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians, black-tail deer, raccoons, beavers and coyotes, hawks, eagles, ducks and geese, and many other wild animals grace our woodlands and wetlands. We have witnessed and, for the most part, enjoyed the presence of a wide variety of wild animals in our woodlands, in our rural and urban settings, and even in our own backyards. Less than two hundred years ago the Northwest was the domain of wild creatures. With the exception of scattered bands of Native American communities, few people lived in this region. In the early 1800's, wagon trains began to roll into the Northwest bringing with them the beginnings of an enormous influx of people. Most of the newcomers valued wild animals as sources of food, clothing, shelter and transportation. However, they unfortunately believed there was an endless supply of wildlife. Over the years, they destroyed massive acreage of wildlife habitat in order to build railroads, houses, farms and businesses. This loss of habitat has been a major factor in the disappearance of Northwest wildlife.

    Five return to musical spotlight at recognition luncheon
    By Chris Grape-Harvey You may have seen them at the Pocono Garlic Festival, the Senior Prom or the Senior Walk. Wherever they appear, they get people dancing, smiling and tapping their feet. They’re the RSVP Band, five musicians in their 60s and 70s who love entertaining people. And they’ll be providing the entertainment once again at next month’s annual Retired and Senior Volunteer Program recognition luncheon. “We get great satisfaction making music for other people,” said band leader Don Weightman of Brodheadsville, who plays tenor saxophone and clarinet. “Otherwise we wouldn’t do it.” Specializing in Big Band/swing era music, the group will also play an occasional polka or Latin tunes like a rhumba. “We try to mix it up,” Weightman said. The band will perform before hundreds of people at the recognition luncheon, which honors more than 1,600 RSVP volunteers for their service. This year’s program is set for Monday, Oct. 3, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Galleria at Split Rock Resort in Lake Harmony. During last year’s event at Tamiment Resort, many volunteers danced to the quintet’s lively beat.

    The Coyote: A Pet Predator It seems that every year we hear about more and more instances of our patients being attacked and frequently killed by our wild neighbor, the coyote. These attacks are completely preventable, by learning more about coyotes and ways that we can protect our pets from them. While pets that live in the hills are at highest risk, the cunning coyote has figured out how to navigate the storm drain system and are predators in all areas of Southern California. Many coyotes have lost their fear of people (possibly by interbreeding with unspayed or unneutered dogs) and have learned that our pets are an easy food source. Coyotes are thriving because of this, so we need to learn how to protect our pets and children, and in so doing, will help to reduce this threat in the future.

You may be surprised at how many services your city animal shelter provides to the people and animals of San Francisco: * Animal control officers (ACOs) respond to calls from the public about anything animal-related, from stray dogs in their neighborhood to birds trapped in their chimneys. Emergencies get an immediate response, even in the middle of the night every day of the year. * ACC accepts lost, stray or abandoned animals 24/7. Staff enters them into the computer system, gives them medications to protect them from diseases, provides a clean kennel with food and water and other necessities, and holds them five days unless claimed sooner by their owners. (Animals surrendered by their owners have to wait only three days.) If the animal goes unclaimed, veterinary and behavioral experts evaluate him or her and put adoptable animals up for adoption. * ACC counter staff accepts pets surrendered by owners during business hours and processes them as they do lost, stray or abandoned animals.
