Summertime means more time outdoors and, hopefully, lots of play time for you and your pets. But beware of common yard and garden substances that can be hazardous to animals who eat them.
“Many of the plants in our gardens and the products we use to care for them can cause intestinal upset and other medical complications in dogs and cats,” says RedRover President and CEO Nicole Forsyth. “With summer upon us, we’ll be spending more time outdoors and must make sure our pets don’t eat these dangerous and potentially lethal substances.”

In early April 2016, RedRover Responders volunteers were on the ground in Pennsylvania with the Core Creek Collaborative. Working in partnership with Bucks County, Animal Lifeline, Rescue Purrfect, the PSPCA, the International Fund for Animal Welfare and local organizations, RedRover helped to implement a strategic Trap-Treat-Neuter-Place/Return program.
This Earth Day, the RedRover staff took a moment to reflect on how we celebrate Earth every day. Here are some of our favorite ways to respect, protect and connect with Earth:
1. Spending time outdoors with an animal friend
"One of my favorite things to do is run along the American River trail with our pup - especially in the evening or at night when a lot of wildlife come out.”
