We’re collecting blankets and funds to help local rescue shelter keep animals warm and well-fed this season.  Feel free to stop in with any blankets you may have, as well as donate to our food drive. You can also enter to win “Dina” the Dinosaur, a sturdy chew toy for pups who are rough on their toys!

Our goal is to buy two pallets of food that we’ll share among KC Pet ProjectChain of HopeSpay & Neuter KC, and other rescues. Make it a point to help a cat or dog in need while you’re out shopping – we’re certain your donations are needed.

Holiday Pet Safety and Poison Tips

holiday-pet-safety-300x199The Pet Poison Helpline has issued a very helpful list of tips and reminders for pet owners this holiday season. What you believe is harmless may be just the opposite for your furry friend.

Included on the list:

  • Decorations: Such as snowglobes or tinsel, a danger for cats
  • Plants: Like poinsettias, holly, and mistletoe
  • Alcohol: Glasses left unattended can prove toxic for pets as well as desserts with the ingredient
  • Liquid Potpourri: The wax can easily burn

Thanksgiving Safety Tips

Just as humans are at risk for “over-doing it” on Thanksgiving, and even getting sick from uncooked ingredients, pet owners should also be on alert for the safety of their four-legged friends. 

The ASPCA  shares several tips on pet safety during the upcoming holiday, including:

  • Turkey safety
  • Uncooked ingredients such as eggs and dough
  • Sage tummy trouble
  • Poisonous floral arrangements
  • And even how to create a mini feast fit for your pet

Barkery Owner Delena Stout on the Streetcar Project

streetcar_lowA recent KMBC 9 interview highlights the possibility of a street car that would make its way into the Brookside neighborhood, and channel 9 stopped in at The Barkery to discuss the development. The project could include a line that runs from Union Station a full nine miles into Waldo, set to launch in 2019 if the vote is passed.

Delena Stout, owner of Brookside Barkery and Bath believes there is “a lot of potential” for the streetcar project, especially because of a lack of parking in the area. It could also mean easier access to natural pet foods for thousands of Kansas City residents, and of course, easy transportation through the heart of the city.
