It is almost Valentine's day. One of the most romantic days of the year, but if you have pets, it can also be a dangerous day for them. Each year, poison control and vet offices see an uptick of cases on February 14th. Here are a few things to watch out for to help your pet stay safe.
The heartbreaking video above was shot by and shared with permission from Laura Garrick. It shows a gentleman dumping off his dog at the North Central shelter in the Los Angeles area for no other reason than she's old, can't hear so good, and just lays down all the time. Canela was initially adopted from the same shelter in 2004, so as near as we can tell, she is at least 13, and possibly as old as 18 right now.

I am trying to get out to my local shelter to take pictures at least twice a month in an effort to help network animals and get them adopted. The following pictures are of several dogs and a cat that are at the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center as of 1/10/2018.
