Amazing! You would have thought cancer, certainly not behavior problems in puppies and dogs as the #1 killer. However, the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior has validated that behavior issues, not infectious diseases are the number one cause of death for dogs under 3 years of age.
The McCullough Foundation, of Houston, recognized The Woodlands Dog Park Club this week with a $15,000 donation to be used in the Partnership for Paws Vaccination/Spay & Neuter Clinics that the Club hosts in cooperation with the Montgomery County Animal Shelter and County Commissioners. In 2008 the Partnership for Paws “Love Your Pets” outreach program vaccinated more than 1000 dogs and cats and spayed or neutered 500.
The Partnership for Paws clinics offer free on-site vaccinations to the public’s dogs and cats and are held throughout the year in various communities (representing the four precincts) around Montgomery County.
