Bark Party by Save a Pet and Lynx NY

In the United States, there are approximately 7.6 million pets in shelters and even many without a home. Each year around 3.2 million pets are rescued and find their fur-ever home, while the others are left without the proper love and care needed.

Save a Pet in Port Jefferson Station, a non-kill, non-profit animal shelter, is teaming up with Lynx-NY to help these animals in need. We are proud to announce, we will be hosting a fund raiser at LI Pour House in Port Jefferson Station, with the goal of raising funds to support the Save a Pet Animal Rescue, and in addition match families and pets together with an onsite adoption option!

Come join in on the fun! We will be having a raffle, DJ, face painting, family activities and so much more.

New Dog For Christmas?

An article written by : Michael Schaier of Michael’s Pack

There is, that adorable face wrapped up with a big red bow. This is the gift that probably made someone the best parent in the world, or maybe this was the promise of commitment from the most loving caring significant other. Or perhaps it was the gift of joy and companionship to an elderly or lonely relative. That’s wonderful, who wouldn’t be thrilled? The questions now that the tree is down and everyone is back to their regularly scheduled lives, what do we do with this puppy?

Author Spotlight- Michael Schaier

 Michael Schaier is not only a local Long Island author but he is also the owner and head certified professional dog trainer of Michael’s Pack. “To all who are genuine dog lovers, the animals are far more than cute and cuddly creatures: they are our children.
