Dogs are two times more likely to develop cancerous tumors when living with a smoker – the most common forms relate to second-hand smoke including cancer of the nasal passage and lungs.
Cats can swallow smoke and soot while grooming themselves. The risk of developing feline lymphoma cancer is also two and a half times more likely for cats living with smokers.
Birds cannot filter the air that they breathe in, causing smoke to become trapped which blackens their lungs and can lead to pneumonia and secondary infections.
Think of your animals before you light a cigarette, and remember that you have a choice but they do not.
Did you know… that nearly half of all animals entering shelters across America are euthanized each year? That is a conservative figure based on current records.
Most of us believe that pet overpopulation means there aren’t enough homes for all the shelter animals. But in fact, there are more than enough homes. There are just not enough people are willing or choosing to adopt from a shelter! According the the American Humane Association, Seventeen million Americans acquire a new pet each year, and that is more than DOUBLE the number of shelter animals! Sadly, only 3.5 million people (about 20 percent) choose to adopt their new pet. The rest choose to buy their pets from breeders, or they choose other cheap/free sources such as friends, neighbors or Internet ads.
Did you know… The Lamar County Humane Association will be at Petco today with dozens of beautiful animals available for adoption? Some of these animals reside at the City of Paris Animal Shelter, while others have been taken into foster homes.

This Dalmatian is one of many shelter animals that will be available for adoption TODAY at the Paris Petco. She’s about one year old; very gentle and quiet. Her time is up, and the shelter is full. The shelter employees have been trying to bring her out of her shell. For the first time yesterday she sat up and wagged her tail when they talked to her. They sat in the kennel with her and before long she was nearly up in their lap. This little angel just wants someone to love her. She is scared, but so very gentle and sweet. The Animal Control Officer that caught her said she’d been on her own for a while. She has captured their heart and we are begging someone to save her. She will be forever grateful and loyal. Please come by Petco today to see her and all of the other beautiful animals waiting for a home.
