A Best Friends campaign to help people provide a loving, forever home for their pets:
Keep Your Furry Frankensteins Safe This Halloween!
When trick-or-treating, give yourpet a flashlight and a step-stool so he or she can reach the doorbell.
Better yet, leave your pet athome.
Update your pets’ ID tags and microchips so you can easily locate them hiding in the candy or chasing neighborhood kids.
On second thought, don’t let your pets eat it – or them.
Your cat will probably just roll her eyes at those silly neighborhood kids in costumes. Make her comfortable with a can of tuna in a closed room so she can have a safe, quiet evening at home watching Tom & Jerry.
If your dog is breathing like Darth Vader or talking like Yoda, his Star Wars costume may be too tight.
Pet costumes aren’t always a good idea.
Give your pets a detailed lecture about the dangers of candles and jacko-lanterns so they will be careful.
Another option would be to take those precautions for them.
