The two biggest holiday presents EVER!!
Crate Escape Belmont is packing for the move directly across Blanchard St. to the brick building on the corner of Hittinger St. Construction is going just fine, thank you… we can’t wait for the big move.
Our new! Crate Escape Charlestown at 200 Terminal St. is fabulous space, perfect for our daycare, overnight, grooming, and retail section needs! The holidays are a perfect time for our 3rd Crate to come together- adding to the excitement to the season! Scheduled to open mid- December!
Spread the Word!
We will love it if you tell your dog loving friends who live in Boston that Crate Escape is opening in Charlestown. Here’s an easy method:
Send emails to your Boston friends telling them about Charlestown Crate and how much your dog LOVES going to daycare. Ask them to forward the email to firstname.lastname@example.org . We will then have your name as the referrer, who gets a free day of daycare if your referral becomes part of our pack; and your friends email, to contact them about Charlestown Crate details!
November: Adopt a Senior Pet Month
Petfinder.com is celebrating November as Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month. “Think of a pet that is already trained and doesn’t chew or scratch everything in sight–a pet who will love you unconditionally,” said Kim Saunders, Petfinder.com’s Director of Public Relations. “That’s what you get when you adopt a senior pet.”
Some people worry that a senior pet comes with problems, but according to Hazel Blumberg-McKee of Tallahassee, FL, there are no disadvantages. “In most cases they’ve had a home and they want one again.” She adopted eight-and-a-half-year old Sadie, and has never regretted it. “An older animal is easier to deal with. And Sadie is still playful. She plays fetch and gallops all over the place.”
At animal shelters and rescue groups everywhere, there are loving, healthy senior pets like Sadie, looking for that one special home to cherish them for the rest of their life, and they don’t ask for much: just a warm place to sleep, good meals and plenty of love.
During Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month, take the opportunity to get acquainted with the older pets available at your favorite shelter or rescue organization. You may visit shelters online at www.petfinder.com.
A Word from our Rover Reporter
It’s good to sit down for a few minutes, even though I have to type with my dew claws. Snoopy was a one in a trillion for his typing skills! Anyway, both projects, Hittinger St, Belmont and the new Charlestown Crate, are coming together splendidly. Mostly because of me being in charge and chasing workers around, snapping at their calves if they don’t move fast enough! With the holidays coming up, a great present for your Boston doglover friends is to tell them about Charlestown Crate! I will make sure we have lots of gift certificates! (not used to being a salesdog, but SO excited about our upcoming openings!)
