HOW DO I?
Keep the holidays happy and safe for your pets
The holidays are in full swing. Holidays bring special cards, gifts decorated with ribbons, tinsel or yarn, and special decorations like Christmas trees. Unfortunately, animals appreciate these items, as well -- and many of them can cause serious damage.
Livestock Owners, Winter is Coming are You Prepared?
Monterey County Animal Services reminds livestock owners:
It’s time to prepare now for the winter months! Check fencing on a regular basis to improve the safety of your housed animals. Keep trees and bushes trimmed around fence lines, unfavorable winter storms can wreak havoc on poorly made and maintained fences. Loose livestock is not only a hazard for them but to neighbors and bystanders as well.
Remember, you are responsible for the health and safety of your livestock and can be issued a citation by law enforcement for the violation of loose livestock on a road way.
