We thought it would be a nice idea to share some animal-related sites we have visited and enjoyed. If you have favourites of your own, let us know and we can add them. You’ll notice that quite a few of these links are from a fantastic site called Pet360 – a veritable goldmine of information about pets of all kinds. So first of all here’s a list of a couple of our main sites:
http://www.petmd.com – for medical info of all kinds about your pet
http://theanimalrescuesite.greatergood.com/ – animal-related stories, info, articles, topics, shopping
http://www.freekibble.com – cute pictures, fun, free kibble for homeless animals!
With thanks to Julia Dunlap of CreditCards.com, here is a link to an excellent summary of information for people needing to fly with their animals:
The article is very thorough and informative, but is primarily about people travelling to or from the USA. If you have details about flying with animals elsewhere in the world, please let us know so we can make this section more comprehensive.
And here are a number of general assistance resources for pets and Service Dogs, with many thanks to Meagan Clark, a member of ForeverCurious – a group of educators and librarians – who visited this page, found it useful, and wanted to share some interesting results of her own research. Thank you, Meagan!
And here are some general interest, curious and humorous pages that you might find useful or simply entertaining.
