Protect Your Pets This Halloween



Submitted by Joint Animal Services

DDM Pet Parade-1Halloween can be spooky fun, but it can also be stressful for pets when masked trick-or-treaters come knocking at the door.

Animal Services recommends keeping pets inside your home in a quiet area away from the front door on Halloween night. Bring cats indoors before the big day to protect them from pranksters.  

Keeping your pets safe also means stashing goodies away from pets. Chocolate and some artificial sweeteners in gum can be very toxic for dogs. Be mindful of pet dangers when hanging decorations, and check pet costumes for comfort and safety.  Be sure your pets wear ID tags at all times, because even big dogs can be ‘fraidy-cats!!

Let’s make Halloween safe and fun for everyone. For more information, visit or call 360-352-2510.
