Trouble Says...
 Children should be educated about bite prevention!


  • Children should not approach, touch or play with any dog who is sleeping, eating, chewing on a toy or bone, or caring for puppies. Animals are more likely to bite if they’re startled, frightened or caring for young.

  • Children should never approach a barking, growling or scared dog.

  • Children should not pet unfamiliar dogs without asking permission from the dog’s guardian first. If the guardian says it is okay, the child should first let the dog sniff his closed hand. Then taking care to avoid petting the dog on the top of the head, he can pet the dog’s shoulders or chest.

  • Children should not try to pet dogs who are behind a fence or in a car. Dogs often protect their home or space.

  • If a child sees a dog off-leash outside, he should not approach the dog and should tell an adult immediately.

  • If a loose dog comes near a child, he should not run or scream. Instead, he should avoid eye contact with the dog and stand very still, like a tree, until the animal moves away. Once the dog loses interest, the child can slowly back away.

  • If a child falls down or is knocked to the ground by a dog, he should curl up in a ball with his knees tucked into his stomach, and fingers interlocked behind his neck to protect his neck and ears. If a child stays still and quiet like this, the dog will most likely just sniff him and then go away.

  • Children should never try to outrun a dog. If a dog does attack a child, the child should “feed” the dog his jacket, bag, bicycle—or anything that he has for the dog to grab onto or anything he can put between himself and the dog.

  For the entire month of August, all pets that have been at the shelter longer than 30 days have a $0 adoption fee! Just remember if you choose an animal that has not yet been neutered, we do require $100 cash deposit-fully refunded to you when we receive proof the animal is neutered.
