Bay Area Humane Society’s adoption center inside PetSmart, 825 Pilgrim Way in Ashwaubenon, is looking to pair up a lot of pets with people next weekend.
For every pet adopted during PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend on Friday through May 6, BAHS will receive $35 in adoption-reward grants from PetSmart Charities.
Open since June 2011, BAHS’ in-store adoption center gives an additional 30 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens a better chance of finding a home in the Green Bay area.
PetSmart Charities has helped adopt nearly 5 million pets since it was created in 1994.
New developments in pet products
Here’s a quick roundup of some new and interesting items on the pet products front.
» Under the sea: Now you can have an exotic water creature with little of the headache. Eshopps has come out with man-made lionfish ($19.95) and orange jellyfish ($15.95) — reef aquarium accessories that behave like the real thing (except for the stinging). See the jellyfish in action at youtube.com (search “Eshopps jellyfish”).
The two products were voted best in show in the aquatics division at the Global Pet Expo in March. For buying information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
» A helping hand: A person’s physical limitations can often affect their pet. Someone with limited mobility or range of motion and an inability to stoop or bend would have difficulty feeding or giving water to a pet or cleaning up after one. KittyKaddy (www.kittykaddy.com) offers several pet care tools — a litter scoop ($14), food and water bowl systems ($16), a litter pan ($11-$19), etc. — designed with helpful handles to make it easier for people to care for their pets.
And here’s a bonus: The company offers a 20 percent discount to anyone who adopts a cat or dog from a shelter.
» Home turf: The Pet Loo gives your pet — dog, cat, rabbit or guinea pig — a place to relieve himself indoors. It’s a cleverly designed system. The animal goes on a synthetic grass surface, and the urine runs through it and drains into a containment unit. Solid matter can be picked up and disposed of, as you would when taking the pet outside.
The Pet Loo is fully washable and comes in three sizes. It’s priced from $99 to $149 and available at www.thepetloo.com.
