102.9 The Lake is dedicated to helping animals find much-needed homes. We have partnered with the Humane Society of Charlotte to highlight some of these wonderful canines and felines looking for their forever home! We would love for nothing more than to help place each of them into a loving family.
1. Make sure your pet has access to fresh water at all times. Even the healthiest pets can get dehydrated, have a heat stoke and sunburn if overexposed to heat. 2. Don't put insect repellent or sunscreen on your pet, unless it's intended for use on pets. 3. Keep your pet away from matches, cintronella candles and lighter fluid, which, if eaten, can irritate the stomach, lungs and central nervous system. 4. Don't leave your pet unsupervised around a pool, lake or high waters - not all dogs are expert swimmers! 5. NEVER leave your dog, cat or any other animal alone in a car! The inside of a car can heat up very quickly - even with a window open. 6. Have a plan for your pet in the event of tornado, flood, hurricane or other natural disaster. Develop an evacuation plan well ahead of an emergency.
