animal rescues

Rescue Me...
Find your new companion here
The general purpose in animal rescue organizations is primarily to work hard in order to save the lives of pets in need. Sometimes pets that have been in the shelter for too long are eligible for euthanization, and these organizations desire to see no animal euthanized. Rescue shelters strive to keep these loving pets alive as they look for new caring families to take a new pet into their home.

Caring Canines
Compassion on Four Paws

Deb Schwarze, MS, MA, LCPC Animal Assisted Therapy Coordinator SwedishAmerican Hospital

What has paws, wears a fur coat year round, is highly educated and works for hugs? Its the canine half of the Caring Canines volunteer team at SwedishAmerican Hospital. Making visits since September, 2010, the Caring Canines teams have brought stress reduction, mood improvement and a feeling of home to the patients, visitors and staff members at SwedishAmerican. Currently numbering 15 dog/handler teams, volunteers make their rounds at least two times each month. Membership in the Caring Canines team is given to an exclusive few who have undergone extensive training. Dogs and handlers must first of all be registered with a therapy dog organization. This designation generally comes after the dog and his human have taken part in obedience training. This proves that the team has the basic skills necessary to visit in a hospital setting. The next step is a temperament assessment administered by the Caring Canines Coordinator and a dog trainer. There, the dog and handler are asked to demonstrate advanced skills and are exposed to situations that they may encounter while visiting a patient. If the team successfully passes this hurdle, they are invited to attend a specialized training where both canines and humans are educated about volunteer work at SwedishAmerican. If it sounds intense, it is. The state of Illinois has only allowed therapy dogs to visit in hospitals since 2008 and there are many guidelines that must be followed. This includes education about infection control, zoonotics (diseases that can be transmitted between animals and humans and vice versa), confidentiality, how to deal with individuals who are afraid of dogs, how to interact with patients in hospital beds, wheelchairs, etc. When a Caring Canine team reports to work, they go room to room on the units they are assigned to visit and ask if the patient would like a visit. Of course, along the way, there may be encounters with staff and visitors, as well. As a part of infection control, everyone touching the dog must use hand sanitizer before and after contact. When a Caring Canine comes calling, a towel or blanket is placed on the bed or on the lap of the patient. The patient can pet the dog and talk to him or her. If the patient requests it, and there are no wounds or injuries that could be jostled, a dog can even snuggle with the patient on their bed. The few minutes that are spent visiting, can be a welcome respite from the anxiety or pain that the patient is experiencing during their hospital stay. So why would anyone want to go to all of this work? Volunteers say that they love spending time with their canine companions, enjoy sharing their dogs skills with others and leave their shift at the hospital feeling like they have given something back to the community. Caring Canines volunteers say that they like the work that they do and so do their dogs. Most say the dog gets excited when they are told it is time to go to work and recognize where they are and what is expected of them when they pull into the parking lot at the hospital. Should you want more information about the Caring Canines, please contact the Caring Canines Coordinator at 815-961-2030 Ext 62166. 5 Pet Pal Guide 2011

Top Five Dog Grooming Basics

Dog grooming is one of your dog's basic needs and an important part of dog ownership. Just like people, dogs need physical maintenance to look and feel their best. Generally, a dogs grooming needs depend on the breed and hair type. If your dog has a skin, ear or nail condition, follow your veterinarians instructions regarding grooming your dog. It is also important to use the appropriate grooming tools. Hair Brushing Most dogs enjoy being brushed, and sessions will strengthen the bond with your dog while maintaining a healthy coat. A dogs minimum brushing needs depend on hair type. Follow these guidelines. Long-haired dogs require daily brushing to prevent matting and tangling of hair. Medium-haired dogs may be prone to matting and tangles and should be brushed at least weekly. Short-haired dogs can typically go up to a month in-between brushing. Regardless of hair type, you can brush your dog daily - especially if he enjoys it. More frequent brushing during shedding season can help prevent hair build-up and excess shedding. Nail Trimming Dogs develop an aversion to nail trimming once they experience pain from it. A veterinary technician, vet, or groomer should teach you how to trim your dogs nails. Most dogs need monthly nail trims, but your dog may

need more or less depending on the rate of growth. An alternative to nail trimming is the use of a rotary tool to file down nails. Bathing Most dogs should be bathed monthly, but bathing as often as once a week is not considered harmful. Always use a soap-free shampoo that is intended for dogs. Depending on the condition of your dogs skin and coat, your veterinarian may recommend a specific shampoo. In this case, be sure to follow your veterinarians instructions about bathing. Ear Care Your dogs ears can be a haven for bacteria and yeast if not kept clean. Dogs with floppy ears or long hair tend to be predisposed to ear problems because the ear canal simply does not have as much air exposure. Many ear problems are a sign of allergies. If your dog has excess debris or foul odor in his ears, your veterinarian will likely prescribe special ear cleaners and medications. Haircuts Dogs with continuously growing hair, such as the Poodle or Shih Tzu, typically need their hair cut every 2-4 weeks depending on the breed of the dog and the style of the cut. This task is often best left to professional groomers, though many dog owners are able to learn some basic maintenance haircuts.

Pet Pal Guide 2011

There are thousands of dogs being used by the military and law enforcement today. Unfortunately, when they are injured or retired, many of them are unable to find suitable homes to live out their lives. Save-AVet provides a comfortable home for these FORGOTTEN SOLDIERS.

passionately believe ...Iwhen our canines that retire from their commission, they should live out the remainder of their days in peace.

Danny Scheurer, Founder of SaveA-Vet, states Everyday our troops rely on our K-9 friends for protection. There were many times our bombsniffing canines saved our lives as we went about our duties. As a longtime animal lover, I passionately believe that when our canines retire from their commission, they should live out the remainder of their days in peace. Many military and law enforcement K-9s are unable to be

placed up for adoption due to their training, past experiences, or injuries obtained in the line of duty. This is when Save-A-Vet THE OTHER FORGOTTEN SOLDIER was born in Dannys heart. Let it live in your heart. Our canine friends and partners will do anything for us. They protect us and give their lives to keep us out of harms way. Now they need our help to take care of them, to protect them, and to give them a place to live after their work is done. Save-A-Vet is a 501(c) (3) organization and is set up to provide a comfortable atmosphere for these forgotten soldiers. Save-A-Vets ultimate goal is to provide disabled injured and retired military and law enforcement veterans housing and employment to help them care for these forgotten soldiers. This goal cannot be accomplished until Save-A-Vet is at 100% strength. How will you help? If you would like more information or to see how you can support SaveA-Vet, go to www.saveavet.org, the rescue can always use donations of money, time, and materials.

THE DOGS OF 9/11


Of the more than 350 dogs that assisted in search and rescue on 9/11, several have passed away while others have since been retired. Regardless of a persons take on animals used for human resources, the Dogs of 9/11 provided a valuable service to America and the world. From Bloodhounds, Shepherds, Dobermans, Retrievers, Labs, Terriers and those of mixed breeds, the search and rescue dogs and their trainers worked tirelessly to locate as many live finds amidst the wreckage of the World Trade Center attack. On the pile of cement rubble, SAR dogs climbed under and over metal beams, and squeezed through the holes that were too small for robots to navigate. There are countless back-stories of the 9/11 rescues, some heartwarming while many are often too sad to fully comprehend. Unfortunately after the first few hours, the located recoveries were of those people who lost their lives. Fortunately, those bodies and body parts that were

By Lou Ann Alberts

recovered, often just missed by human search crews, offered families a sense of closure or in the least a sense of comfort in bringing their loved ones home. Emotional sensibility, intelligence, physical agility, and courage, are all characteristics of a search and rescue dog. Yet the necessary training to fine tune search skills require dedication and rely on donations to maintain existence. There are websites that pay tribute to all service animals and organizations established to help support them. The Pet Pal Guide encourages all of its readers to visit the website of Search and Rescue Dogs of the United States; www.sradogsusa.org, and other SAR agencies, to learn more about this valuable and often thankless service. Let us remember not only the nearly 3000 lives that were lost on 9/11, but also the SAR teams who searched long days and hours for victims without credit, and the veterinarian staffs who oversaw the health and wealth fare of those heroic canines.

Mike Harter
In the middle of August of 2009, I sat in an examination room at a branch of our veterinary office with our beloved beagle, Bobber-Lou, age six, waiting to hear what the diagnosis was for the suspicious lumps on her neck. Dr. Mike (Harter) of Animal Medical Clinic gently broke the news that Bobber had lymphoma. My husband and I lived in a proverbial fog for the next four days as we discussed the options that were explained to us by Dr. Mike. Not soon after, with information and encouragement and much prayer, we decided to pursue a chemotherapy treatment. Dr. Mike explained that Bobber would be placed on the gold standard of treatments from the University of Wisconsin Veterinary Hospital, with adjustments as needed. The overall journey for the next 16 months was bittersweet for our family. Bobber responded immediately to treatment and enjoyed a happy existence but we knew that chemotherapy held only temporary promise. Along the way we not only cherished our time with Bobber, but also came to know the heart and soul of our veterinarian and the angels from AMC North who provided assistance and support. This made a difficult time more comforting and we came to be extremely thankful for their chosen field of veterinary service. As a boy, Mike Harter enjoyed exploring in his neighborhood woods for snakes and mice and the occasional orphaned

bird. Having not much success with the fragile systems of abandoned or injured sparrows and blackbirds, young Mike once rescued a baby crow. He promptly named it Edgar Allen Crow, providing a glimpse at the future sense of humor known as Dr. Mike. The highlights of that early learning experience were, Raising (the crow) until he was able to fly and then having him swoop out of the sky in the morning to get food and attention. They are smart animals. He left to be a wild bird when he was a few months old, though I heard tales of Edgar sightings for more months after that. He was a local celebrity for that spring and summer. Mikes interest in small animals continued to develop, as he grew older. As a young man in college and on track with a pre-vet curriculum, Mike attended the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Wildlife Ecology. During the next five years Mike worked at the National Wildlife Health Laboratories for the Fish and Wildlife Service, in the Diagnostic Microbiology lab. Mike worked along side and learned from many of the veterinarians there, and decided to apply to veterinary school. His work in the lab, as well as his notable degree, demonstrated Mikes dedication to the animal field, and he was subsequently accepted to the Colorado State Universitys Veterinary School. In 1995, Mike graduated magna cum laude with a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine and became part of the medical team at Animal Medical Clinic in Rockford, IL. Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis just a few years ago, Dr. Mike has managed to remain dedicated to veterinary medicine. His devotion to life-long learning extends beyond the walls of the clinic. Dr. Mike is a vital member of V.I.N., which is the Veterinary Information Network --- an Internet medical resource for approximately 40,000 veterinarians worldwide. Having studied radiography for the last five years, Dr. Mike is an integral part of a Diagnostic Imaging team that helps interpret the radiographs and offers suggestions on how to proceed with treatment. It is estimated that Dr. Mike and the team views 30 to 40 cases a day on their own time. The best experiences for me are seeing medical cases that are complex and dire; using what I know

to figure out the problem and doing what is possible to help. Dr. Mikes help with Bobber-Lous quality of life was a gift beyond measure, second only to the gift of Bobber-Lou, herself. His expertise, knowledge, experience and instincts, gave our beloved family member more time with us, with little to no discomfort to her. Until the

last couple of days, Bobber-Lou remained an alert, unusually intelligent, merry beagle. To entrust Bobber-Lou in the care of a veterinarian was a natural choice, but to entrust her to a veterinarian and support staff that selflessly dedicate their lives to provide the best possible care for all animals, was and is a blessing for which we will forever be grateful.

Carpet Cleaning Tip


By CleanPro

Urine deposited on carpet does not stay on the surface. It also penetrates the fibers and contaminates both the backing of the carpet, the pad, and the flooring material below the carpet. Often, without your knowledge, pets will urinate continually in the same general location, causing significant contamination and damage. The key is to act quickly! The longer you wait, the higher the probability that a spill will become a permanent stain. A two-step solution Blot liquids with a dry, white absorbent cloth or plain white paper towels (no prints or colors). Start at the outside of the spot and continue toward the center to prevent the stain from spreading. Continue step one until the area is barely damp. Warning: do not scrub or use a brush. Scrubbing and brushes can damage the carpet. Apply a dry, white absorbent cloth to the area and put something heavy on it so the residual moisture will wick into the dry towel. Keep changing towels until no moisture remains this may take a few days. Step two: treat the spot or stain Once the area is dry use a carpet cleaning product and follow the products directions carefully. Dont use multiple products. Blot; dont scrub. Never use a brush. To remove any cleaner residue mist with clear water and blot. If you have difficulties call a professional Carpet Cleaner. 17 Pet Pal Guide 2011

travel
Before setting out on a trip, pet owners should schedule a visit to the veterinarian to ensure their cats and dogs are up-to-date on vaccinations, and to refill any necessary prescriptions their pets might need. Additional tips for safe, secure travel: When traveling by air: Ensure your pet wears a collar and ID tag with an address and phone number where you can be reached. Purchase a USDA-approved shipping crate, large enough for your pet to stand, sit, and turn around in comfortably. Put a current photo of your pet on the carrier, along with the name, address and telephone number of the person receiving the pet at your destination. Also write live animal in large letters on at least two sides of the crate, along with arrows indicating the upright position of the crate. Check with the airline to see if you can bring your pet onboard with you. Book a short, direct flight whenever possible, to decrease your pets time on the tarmac and in the cargo hold. When traveling by car: Again, make sure your pet has a collar and ID tag with current contact information, including your cell phone number and the number of your travel destination. Keep your pet safe and secure in a well-ventilated crate or carrier, large enough for your pet to stand, sit, lie down and turn around in comfortably. Cats should always travel in a carrier. Never leave your pet alone in a parked car. The car can heat up quickly, leading to heatstroke in your pet. Bring water from home for your pet to drink along the way. Unfamiliar tap water could cause stomach upset in your pet. Dont forget your pets rabies vaccination records, especially when traveling across state lines.
