Let's Aid Pets Impacted by Hurricane Sandy 


Hurricane Sandy pounded the East Coast on Oct. 29, but her widespread wrath remains intense. Dedicated staff and volunteers from the ASPCA, The Humane Society of the United States, Alley Cat Allies and more are working hard to reunite people with their lost pets, assist animal shelters and aid in the clean up. 
Hundreds of pets were injured or separated from their loving families. Pets keep us grounded, keep us sane and fill us with unconditional love.  

Many pet organizations are in need of supplies, donations, volunteers and people to temporarily foster pets. Here are links to other groups in need of help: North Shore Animal League, Animal Care & Control of NYC, Humane Society of New York City, Facebook's Hurricane Sandy Lost and Found Pets

Happy Thanksgiving!!
(Sniff, sniff. Do I smell turkey? Drool.) 



For people, Thanksgiving serves as a day to express gratitude and to eat like a chowhound minus an ounce of guilt.


But what about our pets? Can you imagine how their super senses of smell and sight go into overdrive due to the dining room table heaped with delicious goodies? And the frustration of being told to stop begging?


From the pages of her best-selling book, Real Food for Dogs, Arden Moore shares this healthy holiday recipe called Fido Thanksgiving Feast that you can treat your dog (and yes, your cat):


1. Warm 1 teaspoon olive oil in a medium-sized pan over medium heat.

2. In a small bowl, whisk 1/2 cup mashed potatoes and 1 egg.

3. Pour the potato and egg mix into the pan. Add 1/2 cup diced cooked turkey and 1/2 cup finely chopped broccoli.

4. Cover the pan, reduce heat to low and simmer until the egg is cooked.

5. Top with 1/3 cup grated cheddar cheese and let it cook for a few minutes longer to allow the cheese to melt.

6. Let cool before serving to your pet.


Arden's book soared to No. 6 among ALL books on and features 50 vet-approved recipes. Two-thirds of the recipes are designed for people, too, making this the ultimate time- and money-saving cookbook. To get your paws on an autographed copy of Real Food for Dogs, be the 45th person to email Arden with the code words, Fido Feast. Bone appetit!


Final food for thought: Play it safe by keep your pets out of the kitchen while you prepare your holiday feast. Book time for the both of you to enjoy a brisk walk or fun calorie-burning activity after the big meal.

Lights, Cameras...Fascinating Pets! 



We're on the hunt for fun, funky and fascinating videos that spotlight cats, dogs and other animals. Please send your favorites to Arden to share in the next issue. This month, we feature a video  from Karen Wells that showcases a remarkably talented white Basset hound named Paul Newman. He was found starving in an abandoned garage and saved by Mid-Atlantic Basset Hound Rescue.  How many of these tricks can YOUR dog do?
