Our On-Hold Holiday Messages

Hanukkah, Christmas, New Years Day - the holidays are so much fun.  One of the fun things for the All Creatures staff - well, most of the staff - is making the on-hold holiday messages.  Some clients ask to be put back on hold so they can hear the whole loop.   The internet gives us a venue for sharing those messages with you.  Click on the video...

All Creatures Donating 1000 Lbs. of Hill's Pet Food to Operation Kindness

Food Exchange Results - All Creatures Donating 1000 Lbs. of Pet Food to Operation Kindness
Thanks to the generosity of All Creatures clients and neighbors the Thanksgiving Food Exchange was a big success collecting 1217 pounds of human food for Metrocrest Social Services.  This surpassed the Food Exchange goal of 1000 pounds and it was over 400 more pounds than was collected in 2009.  Special thanks goes out to the employees of CMI, Inc., who collected over 1000 pounds of the food at their office before delivering it to All Creatures.

All Creatures will now donate the goal of 1000 pounds of Hill’s® Pet Food to Operation Kindness – the no-kill animal shelter in Carrollton, Texas.  
Getting a Pet for a Present?
If you are expecting a puppy or kitten as a present, All Creatures will be offering special puppy and kitten packages called Healthy 1st Year.  The promotion puts together all the normal veterinary services you need for your pets' first year.   The details will be available starting December be sure to check the All Creatures blog or follow us on Facebook.

25 Years 1986-2011
Next year - which isn't that far away - will be the 25th year of existence for All Creatures.  Since starting in the strip center at Rosemede and Marsh, the clinic has moved twice and changed ownership, so that is even more reason to celebrate that we still have wonderful clients to serve and pets for which to care.  We are planning lots of ways to celebrate and we want you to be participate.  There will be drawings and free products and promotions and maybe a party or three.  In our January newsletter we will give you a chance to tell us how or if you would like to be contacted - email, text, or you can just follow us on our blog or on Facebook.

How to Involve Children With Pet Care |

Children and pets are big part of our lives. Sometimes one of the motivations for having a pet is to help teach your kids responsibility and give them the experience of caring for another living creature. Sometimes pets come before children, but either way it is best if they can coexist in peace.

I found this article on involving your children in your pets care. Maybe it will give you some good ideas for your household or just remind you to follow through on that idea you had already.

One addition I would make for this article is - once you have your child involved in the pets care, add that responsibility to your child's checklist of things to do every day/week, etc. You don't have a checklist for your child? Well, that's another article.
