What happens when dogs are not spayed/neutered is that biology takes its course. Every heat cycle more pups are born. If there is no one to take care of these pups, they become the innocent victims of the canine overpopulation problem.

I am so happy to be guest writing this blog. I fully endorse the multi-step adoption process utilized by hart because I am proof positive it works. I will lay my bias out on the table right away – I am a rescue dog and without hart’s help I probably wouldn’t have seen my first birthday, let alone found the most awesomest furever family to call my own.

Come out to our third annual run and walk in support of hart. If you have been following us, you will see that this year our run has a new name and location. That’s right, it is now Sneaker’s and Strays.
All good things can get even better, so this year we are incorporating some new things.

In celebrating our nation’s birthday we frequently express our joy in fireworks displays. Unfortunately, these can terrify many dogs and pose risks to their safety should they try to take flight to escape the loud noises. Dogs have been known to run away, break leashes, jump through plate glass windows, jump fences and dig under fences as their flight response takes hold.

Dogs actually have three eyelids; the upper, lower and a third eyelid which is called nictitating membrane. The nictitating membrane is a thin, opaque tissue which rests in the inner corner of the eye, below the lower eyelid. The purpose of the third eyelid is to offer additional protection to the eye and cornea and also spreads tears across the eyeball surface. Most animals, except humans and pigs, have a nictitating membrane.
