Early November marks National Animal Shelter and Rescue Appreciation Week, a good time to note the amazing work our shelters do in keeping animals and people safe and cared for in our communities.
Why do our pets act the way they do? Some pet behaviors are inherited, while others are learned or based on environmental influences. It’s helpful for pet owners to understand the behaviors of their furry friends so that animals may be managed for the health and happiness of entire households.
Many people are attracted to exotic pets for their unusual and fascinating qualities. Tarantulas, bearded dragons, chinchillas: These and other animals are good fits for some households.
