Sunbear Squad Watch Tip of the Week: July 26th

The Sunbear Squad has resolved to make a difference for neglected and abused companion animals. They are transforming animal lovers into animal welfare defenders — with knowledge, tools, and inspiration.

Watch Tip: Watch for pets that act afraid of raised arms or vigorous movement. This may be a sign that the pet has been a victim of cruelty. Look for more signs of abuse like scars or limping, and if you find any, be a Good Samaritan for animals. Call the authorities.

The corner where the full water bowl sits

Anna Nirva shared an idea from Len in New Jersey, one of the Neighborhood Watch leaders. Len wrote to say that during hot summer days, passing dogs on walks often get thirsty. He puts out a big bowl of water by the road to help refresh those thirsty dogs, and at the same time, he gets a casual opportunity to talk to the owners too. How’s that for a great idea to help the animals and get to know the neighborhood pet owners too?
