Your Pets Need Special Care in the Summer Heat

 

  • Pets can get dehydrated quickly, so give them plenty of fresh, clean water when it's hot outdoors. Make sure your pets have a shady place to get out of the sun, be careful to not over-exercise them, and keep them indoors when it's extremely hot.
  • Symptoms of overheating in pets include excessive panting or difficulty breathing, increased heart and respiratory rate, drooling, mild weakness, stupor or even collapse. They can also include seizures, bloody diarrhea and vomit along with an elevated body temperature of over 104 degrees. Animals with flat faces, like Pugs and Persian cats, are more susceptible to heat stroke since they cannot pant as effectively. These pets, along with the elderly, the overweight, and those with heart or lung diseases, should be kept cool in air-conditioned rooms as much as possible
  • No Parking! Never leave your animals alone in a parked vehicle. "On a hot day, a parked car can become a furnace in no time-even with the windows open-which could lead to fatal heat stroke.

**********************************************************************************************

We began our spay/neuter program in 2002.  At the end of 2013 we had facilitated the spay/neuter of 5,648 pets. 

Kootenai Pets for Life encourages everyone to take their pets to their veterinarian and have them spayed or neutered and to keep their vaccinations up to date.

If you are unable to do this, KPFL, with some financial assistance from the County is actively offering a spay/neuter program. If you need help to spay or neuter your pet call 293-kpfl (5735).

Adopting A Friend

We always have pets available for adoption.  If you don't see a photo of the dog or cat you are looking for, please stop by the Shelter or give us a call as it is difficult to be up to the minute with photos.  We are all volunteers and many of us have full time jobs besides volunteering at KPFL.

The following links will help you with the adoption process.

Who We Are

Kootenai Pets for Life was started in 2001 by a group of concerned citizens to provide a humane, no kill Shelter for the stray and abandoned pet population of the Libby/Troy area.  It is a non-profit, all volunteer organization providing shelter, assisting our community with spay and neuter, foster care, veterinary assistance and education.  

**********************************************************************************************

From our beginning in 2001  we have adopted out over 2200 pets.  Each cat or dog that comes into our Shelter is spayed or neutered and up to date on shots before being released for adoption

The cumulative total for spay & neuters facilitated by KPFL from 2001 is nearing the 5,000 mark.  We continually work on the spay/neuter program using facilities in Libby, Kalispell and Bonners Ferry.

Kootenai Pets for Life encourages everyone to take their pets to their veterinarian and have them spayed or neutered and to have their vaccinations up to date.

If you are unable to do this KPFL, with some financial assistance from the County, is still actively offering a spay/neuter program. If you need help to spay or neuter your pet call 293-kpfl (5735) or if you can help financially mail your check to KPFL, Box 1454, Libby, MT 59923.
