Halloween: A frightening time for animals

Halloween can be a frightening time for animals.

Many people love the fun of Halloween and want to include their pets, but it
can be a frightening, stressful holiday for animals.

Isolated and random events that may cast a lasting spell on dogs and cats
tend to converge on Halloween. Ringing doorbells, lots of candy,
high-pitched yelling or screaming, and clothing that covers a stranger’s
eyes or head can all be disconcerting to pet – especially when they’re
experienced together on the same night.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have something less to worry about?

This Halloween, give your pet a ‘treat’ with spay/neuter. Not only will
this help them lead happier, healthier lives by avoiding illnesses such
as cancer, but it will also help our community.

Last year, nearly 30,000 pets were euthanized in Hillsborough County alone.
This figure provided by the Hillsborough County government statistics can be
a ‘scary’ thing to think about around Halloween. Shelters just don’t have
enough homes for our pet overpopulation crises.

We want to hear about your experience with spay/neuter…do you think it is
important? Have you had your pet spayed/neutered? How do you feel about

Thank you and have a safe Halloween!
