Playful Shelties

Keeping Your Sheltie Safe on Halloween

Halloween is a fun event for kids, but generally not for Shelties. Shelties
are a breed with a high flight risk and frequent opening of doors increases the
chances for an accidental escape. Even the more social Shelties may react out
of the norm at the appearance of people in costumes. The best thing for your
Sheltie is to keep him or her in another room with the door closed and a yummy
Kong until the trick or treating is done.

MNSR at the U of M Vet Med Open House

Minnesota Sheltie Rescue had a booth at the U of M College of Veterinary Medicine Open House for the first time this year. The event was well attended and our booth was located next to our friends from Collie Rescue. The connection with the veterinary community was wonderful, and we enjoyed talking with vet students interested in volunteer opportunities with MNSR, as well as potential adopters and foster families.
