On any given day, Orange County Animal Services (OCAS) accepts dozens of dogs and cats in need of a home. There’s a final twist to this story: recent studies have shown that affection for pets goes hand-in-hand with concern for the natural world. It seems that people can be roughly divided into those that feel little affinity for animals or the environment, and those who are predisposed to delight in both, adopting pet-keeping as one of the few available outlets in today’s urbanised society.

There are codes of practice for the welfare of dogs, cats, horses (including other equidae) and privately kept non-human primates. They provide owners and keepers with information on how to meet the welfare needs of their animals, as required under the Animal Welfare Act 2006. They can also be used in courts as evidence in cases brought before them relating to poor welfare. The codes apply to England only (Wales and Scotland have their own equivalent codes), and are in force from 6 April 2010.

Not everyone likes being home alone, but having a cat or dog there can make your feel a lot safer. Plus, burglars are less likely to target a house that’s clearly home to a dog.

We begin by looking at simple weighted differences between pet owners and non-pet owners, and then move on to survey-weighted logistic regression analyses to investigate individual characteristics associated with dog ownership, cat ownership, dog or cat ownership, and dog and cat ownership. This second set of analyses tells us how much a certain characteristic is related to the different types of pet ownership, using log odds to describe the size of the relationship.

Pet owners should ensure that pets have enough food and water for the whole flight, including possible transfer times, if applicable. We envision a humane and compassionate community for all animals. Our mission is to save the lives of all healthy and treatable animals in the Las Vegas Valley. Rabies vaccination is required for all dogs entering the United States from a country where rabies is present. Puppies must not be vaccinated against rabies before they’re 3 months old. So the youngest that a puppy can be imported into the United States is 4 months old.
