Supurr Friends for Felines in Salt Lake City; Best Friends Helps Cat Crusaders Spring to Action, Advance Adoptions

What happens when Supurrman, Spawderman, Catman, Whisker Woman and Captain Americlaw join forces against a terrible trio of (catnip-stuffed) villains?

KAZAM! It’s the perfect formula for fantastic feline crime-fighting chaos.

Five courageous cats sported superhero capes and avenged evil to mark the debut of the new Cat Crusaders volunteer team at a shelter in Salt Lake City, Utah. The masterminds behind the Cat Cru are another dynamic duo—Salt Lake County Animal Services and Best Friends Animal Society.

The goal of the Cat Cru is to increase the feline save rate by 10 percent over last year in Utah’s largest city. Salt Lake County Animal Services took in 4,355 cats and kittens last year, and 2,457 were adopted, rescued or returned to their owners. Holy statistics Catman!

The Cat Cru is modeled after another very successful joint effort between Best Friends and Animal Services– the very successful Pit Crew program, which, since its inception in July 2009, has bumped up the shelter’s save rate for adoptable pit bull terrier-type dogs from 80 percent in 2008 to 99 percent in 2011.

Salt Lake County Animal Services officials hope that working closely with Best Friends, a national leader in the no-kill movement, will help change people’s perception of the shelter.

“One of our biggest challenges right now is shaking the stereotype of ‘Animal Control’ where people see us as the ‘pound’ or simply a stray holding facility,” said John Coulter, special program manager for Salt Lake County Animal Services. “We want to attract new adopters to our shelter and market ourselves as an organization that is committed to saving animals’ lives. Our Cat Cru volunteers will be instrumental in helping us create a movement that does just that.”

Organizers are plotting to develop the Cat Cru into an active volunteer network that creates proactive solutions to boost feline adoptions. Volunteers will photograph the cats and write captivating descriptions to increase their online and in-purrson appeal. They’ll also function as adoption ambassadors who will meet and greet potential cat adopters, answer questions and assist with adoptions.

A special group of Cat Crusaders will serve as the “neonatal team”—on-call fosters ready to swoop in and rescue orphaned newborn kittens needing immediate bottle feeding. These teams will care for these “bottle babies” temporarily until a longer-term foster home can be arranged.

Cat Cru volunteers will play a super important lifesaving role for these homeless cats and kittens. But equally important are all the heroes and heroines who save lives by adopting their fabulous felines from the shelter.

In the spirit of saving lives and working with other humane groups to bring about a day when there are No More Homeless Pets, Best Friends Animal Society partners with Salt Lake County Animal Services to help find furever families for as many pets as possible.

A guide to choose the most reliable and advance dog food

A guide to choose the most reliable and advance dog food

Colorful bags and slick advertisements often confuse these customers while purchasing dog food in Sydney. However, the confusion can be easily eliminated by a careful study of dog/ cat food with respect to your pet. There are in fact a number of aspects attached with the selection of right dog/ cat food for your pet such as: 

Your dog’s/ cat’s size Breed of your dog/ cat Your dog’s/ cat’s everyday activity level Your dog’s/ cat’s life stage And the health conditions associated with your pet. 


Without considering these factors, you can not cater to your dog’s basic needs. Some of the leading names associated with dog food Sydney include eukanuba dog food, hills science diet dog food, royal canin dog food, eagle pack dog food, iams dog food, supercoat dog food and pedigree dog food. But for choosing the right dog food among them you need to consider the above given factors. 

? Size of your pet: Your dog’s size plays an important role in deciding the amount of advance dog food that should be fed to your pet. Usually good brands such as royal canin dog food and royal canin cat food contain feeding regulations and even the approximate amounts label is present on the bag. These labels are to guide you about the needs of your specific dog. 

? Breed of your dog: It is important to note that the specific nutritional requirements of dogs vary according to their breeds. Certain breeds require more nutrition than others in order to live the best possible lifestyle. Manufacturers of dog food Sydney are well-acquainted with such issues and to overcome such problems have started producing breed specific cat and dog food products. 

? Your dog’s/ cat’s everyday activity level: Dogs with high energy require food with higher calories. Calorie rich food such as eukanuba dog food, hills science diet dog food, eagle pack dog food, iams dog food, supercoat dog food and pedigree dog food are appropriate for working dogs, as they remain highly active while assisting their masters in daily tasks. 

? Your dog’s/ cat’s life stage: Even the life stage of your dog plays a vital role in opting for a dog food. Nutritional needs keep on changing with the passage of time and different life stages have different nutritional needs. Puppies require a protein rich, high calorie dog food, whereas adult dogs require a balanced dog food including all the necessary elements. Senior dogs have special requirements and different needs. Therefore, it is impossible to serve the similar kind of advance dog food to every dog. 

With so many choices available in the markets, you may find difficult to choose an apt dog food for your pet, but these important factors can guide you a long way.
