FROM THE PUBLISHER
Pet Me! Magazine – July/August/September 2017
Keeping your pets safe is at the heart of our summer issue of Pet Me! Magazine. We all know how deadly the heat can be—especially to animals. Writer Courtney Andrews from Valencia Veterinary Center shared some tips to make your animals comfortable and cool. She also reminds us about the threat of water toxicity and the need to keep our pets hydrated.
Have you ever seen a bunny with his head cocked to one side or the other? It’s a condition called “sudden head tilt," also called “wry neck,” that you may have never heard about. Dr. Amber Wheelbarger does a great job of explaining to us the symptoms and treatment options for these bunnies. But perhaps more importantly, they need our tender loving care—hand-feeding them and wrapping them in towels to ease their suffering.
You’ve probably seen many service dogs in your lifetime. They are amazing animals, but they aren’t pets. Instead, they have a job to do, and writer Sara Kinder researched the controversy surrounding them, including which ones are legitimate therapy dogs trained to accompany disabled individuals when they travel, for instance.
You will also meet a hero in this issue—Deanna Davis, who fosters special needs cats, because she knows there are few people who will. You’ll read about Cutie Pie, Gracie and Morris, all who have interesting survival stories.
There are other survivors looking for forever homes. Consider taking home a dog or cat you see on our pages of adorable adoptables!

My love of animals began at an early age, and in fact, I don’t remember a time that I didn’t have pets. Decades later I’m actively involved in adoption with our local shelter in an ongoing process to change the community perception of our shelter system. With a desire to encourage animal rescue, adoption, and humane education I decided to embark on a dream and launch Pet Me! Magazine. My dream is that through education each person reading will be encouraged to become involved and make a difference in some way whether great or small. Our mission is to offer insight and education to pet parents and be a voice for animals. Our goal is to strengthen awareness in the pet community; to inspire people to become more involved and more aware. We aspire through education to help pet lovers gain insight and understanding of their companion pets.
