📣Please Remember that fireworks are super scary for our pets.

1. Make sure you have a plan for your pets so they don’t escape or get hurt.

2. If needed, consult with your Veterinarian for medication options.

3. Keep pets inside if possible- Stay with them as they use the bathroom.

4. Turn on the T.V. or radio to muffle the noise from outside.

5. Distract your pets by playing with them or by giving them their favorite toys.

6. Give them a safe place to relax and hide.

7. Have updated ID & chip information on your pet.

❤ Thank you, Love Auntie Maggs

Many believe prong collars are cruel and even injure a dog. The truth is, a properly fit prong collar is perfectly safe for a dog when used correctly by the trainer (that’s you!). It does not, and should not, inflict severe pain or choke the dog in any way, when used correctly.

Muzzles are extremely misunderstood. Most people assume a dog wearing a muzzle must be aggressive. While some dogs do wear muzzles as a precaution, not all dog muzzles are used to prevent bites or aggressive behaviors.

Below are examples of why muzzles are a powerful, effective training tool:

  • Muzzles keep other people and animals safe
  • Dogs can be unpredictable in new situations with new friends and when facing new challenges
  • For dogs that are injured, sick or fearful, a muzzle can increase safety at the vet.
  • Muzzles keep other people feeling more relaxed
  • A muzzled dog means a bite is not possible. This puts others at ease.
  • Muzzles keep you, as the handler, more relaxed
  • Potentially dangerous situations are mitigated with a muzzle. This puts others at ease and the handler at ease. An added benefit for a relaxed handler is a relaxed dog!
  • For handlers that are less assertive about their dog’s need for space, a muzzle can be an extra “sign” to prevent people from approaching.
  • Muzzles keep your dog safe & happy
  • Muzzles teach your dog that touch can mean treats and trust.
  • Muzzles teach your dog to handle new social situations in a safe setting.
  • Muzzles can mean sports, games, and fun training time!
  • And most importantly, muzzles teach your dog that you will keep them safe!

BBQ season is around the corner!

On Wednesday Bella had surgery to remove a large skin tag on her stomach and a smaller one on her neck. She also had Xrays of her back right knee and hips.

The xrays revealed that she does have arthritis in both legs. The right knee does have chips of bone floating around which is the main reason for her limping. At this point surgery isn’t a great option but we will manage the swelling and discomfort with medication.

While this is a chronic issue for Bella, it definitely isn’t effecting her quality of life. She loves to be out and about and playing with friends. Just no long walks for this senior gal.

She is doing amazing after surgery and is now 100% ready for her home! So if you are interested in adopting please contact us at adoptions@patraspittyproject.org!!

Also a special thank you to PAALS Inc. for awarding us with Kora’s Grant in February! Because of this grant Bella was able to get her surgery.

Lately we have been getting a lot of requests to help owners rehome their dogs due to their dog biting. When asked what happened the standard response is “It happened out of no where!” But then with some probing questions we figure it out…

Would you want to be startled awake by someone jumping on you?

Would you want a stranger running up to you yelling in your face?

Would you want someone to be pulling your hair or poking you?

The answer is probably no. Dogs communicate ALL THE TIME. But it’s often missed.

Prevention is the best way to protect you and your dog from a dog bite. Learn your dog. Look for signs. But also follow these tips, and share the info!! Some people aren’t “dog people” and just don’t know what is/isn’t okay. Knowledge is power!!

Prince got neutered and now he’s all about showing off his assets 🤣

He is doing great, as you can see, and is looking for his forever home! He’s a silly goofball of a boy and could certainly bring some fun into your life!

📣 We have a new member of the PPP Family 📣

Meet Prince!!!

Prince is approximately 1.5 years old, pitbull mix. He is great with people, kids, and other dogs. He came to us as an owner surrender. They don’t have time for him anymore. He has not been taken on a walk since last year and primarily was living in his crate.

This sweet boy is looking for a foster or adopter! He will be getting neutered and will be up to date on all vetting soon.

If you are interested in fostering or adopting Prince please email us at foster@patraspittyproject.org or adoptions@patraspittyproject.org

❤️🐾 Tillie’s Valentine’s Day Love Story 🐾❤️

Tillie came to Patra’s Pitty Project with a broken heart… figuratively and literally….

In her short five years of life she had been used over and over as a backyard breeders source of income. She had at least five litters, probably more. Every time she was used for her babies. She went through pregnancy which is risky in a little hippo her size, and then delivery which is riskier, just to have her babies ripped away. Over and over and over. And if that wasn’t bad enough, she was dumped by her “owner” when she was no longer useful to him.

She came to us as a scared, anxious, heartbroken girl. But we vowed to change her life for her.

Tillie arrived at her foster home and almost immediately transformed into a new dog. She learned how to play with toys, trust humans, and have fun with fur pals.

But then we found out she had numerous heart conditions. Because we had no idea how long she had issues, or how serious they were impacting her life, we decided to wait to have spayed and adopted. Then our poor girl got a serious uterine infection and had to have surgery. And if that wasn’t enough, her body rejected the stitches and her wound opened. Finally, weeks and weeks later, she has fully healed.

And now, the best part of this story is that we can finally announce that Tillie has been adopted by her foster Mom and Dad!!! We knew the day she met her Momma, Parker, that she was never leaving them. And we couldn’t have asked for a better foster family for our girl. Their love and dedication to her has surely gotten her to where she is today.

Tillie’s heart is no longer the shattered, broken one that it was. She is healthier than she’s ever been, and her heart is so full with love.

We are so incredibly happy for Tillie and her “new” family. We love you little hippo!!!

Pupdate on our alumni Lola!!!

From her Dad: “Lola is an absolute love and we can’t begin to explain how much we all LOVE her. She really came out of her shell after the first two weeks and she fit right in with our family. She’s a sweet, happy dog who loves to snuggle, sleep, eat, and play. She LOVES her siblings (both human and fury). She loves her toys – we buy tough chew toys from Bullymake. She also loves stuffed toys – she doesn’t rip them apart like our other pibbles. She just kind of sucks on them – which is super cute. And she LOVES going for rides!”

01*24*2019

The struggle is real

01*20*2019

Pupdate!!!

Snickers, now Otto, is doing great! He’s enjoying life with his parents and fur-sister Maggie! He celebrated his 1st Birthday and enjoyed a Frosty Paws! He is quite the chewer and loves Buffalo Horns the most. We are so happy to see him settled in and enjoying his life!

Merry Christmas 🎄 from Patra’s Pitty Project!!

2018 was a great year for us! Opening in June was not what we were planning, but because of all of YOU, we were able to open early and start helping those pups in need months ahead of schedule.

In 6 short months we brought 8 pups into the rescue: Tucker (Fritzy), Bruno, Akali, Daeny, Snickers, Tillie (Bonnie), Zeus, and Lola (Chrissy)!

We simply could not have done this without the unwavering support of our PPP Family!!

From the bottom of our hearts we want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!!

~ Maggie, Lindsey, Corinne, Laura, Kim, Brianna, And Marissa.
