Every Wednesday at 9:10am, Gwen and Gunner feature a different pet that needs a new forever home here in the Basin. Sometimes it's a dog, sometimes it's a cat. They haven't had any guinea pigs, hamsters, birds or snakes---yet. But you never know!

Meet Sandy!

Sandy is a one year old Chihuahua mix who has been spayed and is up to date on her vaccines and ready for her forever home!  Sandy is a sweet lap puppy who also likes to run around and play!  She wants to be your one and only so if you have kids or other pets she isn't the right one for you!  Sandy is fearful of other dogs and children and will bite out of fear.  She needs a quite environment to destress and catch up on all the love she has been missing. She is adored by all of the staff and often enjoys being the office assistant but a shelter can't beat a real home!  If you are looking for a lap puppy to spoil and treat like the princess she longs to be, come visit Sandy at Lone Star Sanctuary For Animals during visiting hours 1pm-4:30pm Sun-Wed and Fri-Sat. she will be waiting!

And if for some reason you're not looking for a pet right now--please click SHARE and post this to your social media so we can help Sandy find her forever home. Or perhaps you're looking for a new furry friend who's a bit bigger. There are so many fur babies who would love to meet you-so stop by and pay them a visit! There are plenty of dogs and cats to choose from who would love to be your next family member.

To prepare yourself for a potential incident, always keep your vet's phone number handy, along with an after-hours clinic you can call in an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a hotline you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.

Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is preventing it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.
