Enrichment Program at the Humane Society of St. Lucie County

Enrichment Program

The HSSLC Enrichment program is designed to improve and enhance the mental lives of the dogs in our care. Many times dogs come into a shelter and become anxious or depressed. There is such a high energy level in the kennels that stresses some dogs out. Certain dog breeds also require a lot more exercise and attention than other breeds. If they aren’t able to get the needed exercise, this can lead to anxiousness or lashing out. This is why the Humane Society of St. Lucie County has decided to launch our NEW Enrichment Program.

cats during flea season

How to Fight Back this Flea Season

Fleas are the most common external parasites of dogs and cats. Adult fleas are most commonly found on their host (could be your pet) and the immature fleas are found in the pet’s close environment. Your animal isn’t likely to pick up fleas from coming into contact with a flea-infested animal but rather coming into contact with an infested environment. With warmer weather here, flea infestations are more common. If you have found one flea, that flea could have already laid up to 100,000 eggs. It is time to take action.

We are here to help you. Fleas can be kept at bay if you are readied with the best tips and techniques to drive them away.
