Houston Humane Society Offers Tips for a Safe Halloween for your Family Pet

Posted on Monday, 28 October 2013

The Houston Humane Society (HHS) wants everyone to take the following steps to be sure pets have a happy, healthy and humane Halloween.

If you plan to hand out candy this season, be sure your dog or cat is secure (whether in a crate or another room). Many pets escape through frequently opened doors!

Be sure all pets are wearing collars with ID tags. Many of us leave collars and tags off from time to time, but this time of year it is imperative that you don’t forget to put their identification on them. Constant doorbell ringing, frequent visitors, and disruption in their normal routine can spook even the most well-adjusted pet. If your pet does dart out, you want to make sure they have their ID!

Keep candy out of your pet’s reach. Many types of candy and chocolate can be harmful to pets.

Jack O’ Lanterns! Fun and festive, but watch those candles. A darting cat or dog can accidentally tip them over and create a fire hazard! Consider switching to batter operated tea lights this year.

Costumes! We love ‘em. But make sure the costume is not restrictive or overly annoying to your pet. And be careful of anything that dangles! You don’t want your pet to choke!
