I’m not into the whole “new year, new me” thing, but as we enter a new year it’s a good time to create a list of to-dos and goals. It’s kinda of nice to have the feeling of starting fresh! 2016 was absolutely insane for me…in a good way! This year I have a plethora of career goals, but let’s take it one day at a time. I have some priorities to get in order, some of which involve my pets. Take a look at this simple New Year’s pet parent checklist that I’ve put together for you.
New Year’s Pet Parent Checklist
I’m off to a productive start to the year. On my immediate to-do list are updating my dog’s licenses and scheduling a vet appointment for Khloee and Wynston. They both need an updated rabies shot. I also need to get Leila spayed in February.
I’m also ready to make a run to MCACC. I have a box of blankets from our wedding ready to donate to the local shelter (about 30 blankets total!), as well as a bag of treats and toys for dogs and cats. If you’re doing some house cleaning, take any blankets or towels that you don’t need and set them aside. Your local animal shelters could really use them! It’s cold out and too many animals are sleeping on concrete floors – they could use your help. Other items that shelters could use are bottles and formula for puppies and kittens, paper towels and cat litter. If you have it, donate it. There is no point in throwing away food that your pet didn’t eat or litter that your cat didn’t like.
Do you have any special items on your pet parent checklist for the upcoming year? What general to-dos could you add to this checklist? How about goals? I’d love to hear about them!
