December 2009

With this special holiday issue, Goodnewsforpets features great tips and advice on how you can protect your pet this holiday season. Visit our Special Features section to learn valuable tips and information on how to keep poisonous holiday decorations away from your pet, and how to keep them safe while traveling.

So many shelter pets won’t have a warm place to call home this holiday season, so we want to encourage those thinking about adoption to give these pets the greatest give of all: a loving family. Visit the Top Story for more information about the adoption process, tips on adopting the right pet for you and additional pet adoption resources.

Tis the season for giving! This month, Goodnewsforpets will be giving away one of Planet Dog’s wonderful eco-friendly toys for each week during the month December! Visit our Contest section and register for your chance to win this week’s toy.

Speaking of toys, Goodnewsforpets thinks it’s important to give your pet the best, so we’ve decided to compile our Top 10 Holiday Gift Ideas for Pets in the What’s New Section. Don’t forget about your pet this holiday season!

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of the Muse MedallionTM winners announced at this year’s Cat Writers’ Association Conference. These talented writers inspire and encourage cat lovers everywhere! I really enjoyed the conference and was honored to share my knowledge of social media with my lecture “Tweet, Poke, and Post–Learn the New Way to More Publicity.” Be sure to check out the latest books from CWA winners in the New Books section.

Don’t forget to become our fan on Facebook and follow us on Twitter!
