Dog-Friendly Housing

Katie Reardon created MyApartmentMap It is a housing search web site that has pet friendly listings all over the USA. This could help people from giving up their pet due to moving.

She created this web site after searching for an apartment that would accept her Jack Russell and her Beagle. As a pet owner she found it difficult to find pet friendly apartments, and wanted to help other pet owners find a home quick and easy.

The entire process of phoning one landlord after another, only to hear the dreaded phrase, “No pets allowed!” is enough to discourage just about anyone. However, with a little planning, there are ways to make the experience much easier on everyone, including your pet!

Read on to find out how to adapt a pet to your apartment or vice versa.

The Ultimate Guide to Homeowners
Insurance for Dog Owners

Dog owners often find themselves facing a particular dilemma when trying to secure homeowner's insurance.

Renae Lindley’s Pet Sitting/Walking & Home Visits

A little bit about me
I was born in Phoenix and recently moved back from Northern California. My husband and I bought a house in Terravita (North Scottsdale) which we share with our greyhound, Casino. It’s time to leave the corporate world and have some fun doing what I love.
Pet Sitting/Walking
Having always had animals in my life, it’s time to do what makes me happy . . . spending time with them. I have adopted rescues, purebreds and mutts. Basic Obedience Training classes were completed along with Pet CPR & First Aid Training from PetTech in 2015.
Home Visits
I have spent the last 30 years in residential and commercial property management. My responsibilities included over 100 homes, 1M square feet of office, retail, medical buildings and construction.
If interested
Please contact me for details on services offered and pricing. I would be pleased to provide you with individual plans that work for you, your pets and your lifestyle! I work in the Terravita, Carefree, Winfield, Cave Creek areas.

Greyhound Health

Pet Guardian Angels of Arizona 
A national pet rescue and adoption assistance service also offering general and health related articles and resources for all types of pets. 

Pet First Aid and CPR Guide
When a loved one is badly injured, chokes, or stops breathing, people need to understand what action to take. For that reason, learning basic first aid and CPR is of the utmost importance. Most often, however, when a person thinks of learning these skills, it is for the benefit of humans, with little or no thought given to emergency care for their pets.

A Pet Owner's Guide to Dental Care
As much as in humans, dental health is an important part of your pet's overall health. Pets, like their owners, can get cavities, loose teeth and tooth abscesses. If your pet has bad breath it can be a sign of periodontal disease resulting from a build-up of plaque. If plaque is not removed, your pet can end up with a bacterial infection. The bacterial infection can spread through his bloodstream into your pet's body systems where it can damage his liver, kidneys, even his heart and brain.<read more>

How Smoking Affects Our Pets
For many, pets are considered to be family members. This is why special consideration should be given when making choices concerning smoking. Second-hand smoke is a danger to the heart and lungs of your pets, as well.

Physical Therapy for Pets
Our pets take care of us in many capacities. Humans who have a companion animal generally have better cardiovascular health, a decreased likelihood of depression, reduced stress, and more social interactions. Pets have a tangible impact on our overall well-being. In recent years, doctors and physical therapists have even used pets to help humans rehabilitate in what's called animal-assisted therapy, or AAT. They are now a staple for many therapies and treatments. Dogs, cats, horses, and other animals tend to be very good for our well-being, but what about them? Sometimes, our pets need the rehabilitation services that humans have the luxury to have access to. (Read more)
