Did you know you can deduct your mileage and any products you buy for volunteering? KEEP YOUR RECEIPTS! Even gas receipts. I recently had my tax return done with some deductible donations and my pet business. The preparer advised even my mileage to pet events I volunteer at is deductible. So now I keep track of every event I go to and the mileage. I walk dogs for a rescue and had to buy a special collar. DEDUCTIBLE!
I attend (volunteer) adoption events at least twice a month. The mileage to these events are deductible. If you do it a lot, it adds up. So keep this in mind, $10 here, $20 there adds up in 12 months. I was volunteering for the joy of helping animals, but if the government is going to give me a break for doing so, who am I to say no!
If you do have a pet business or thinking of starting one, everything from paper towels to your car insurance is deductible. The supplies you use for your home business, such as your home office supplies. Every penny you spend on advertising, any and all supplies related to your business. Your phone bill that is used for business. Again keep those receipts!
Four out of five dogs over the age of three have gum disease.
This is an old fashioned recipe, says Ihor Basko, DVM., a holistic veterinarian in Hawaii. Wet a toothbrush with two or three drops of hydrogen peroxide and dip it in baking soda. If your dog is not used to a toothbrush, try your finger or washcloth first, or try a pet finger toothbrush.
Hydrogen peroxide can also be used as an antiseptic for dogs. Whatever toothpaste you use, do not use human toothpaste, it may make your pooch or cat sick. Another vet advises baking soda may cause problems to your pet. I suggest to try a bit to see how your dog reacts if you try the homemade toothpaste. Proper dental care can add up to five years on your dog’s life.
Every year millions of unwanted dogs and cats, including puppies and kittens, are needlessly euthanized. The good news is that every pet owner can make a difference. By having your dog or cat spayed or neutered. Click here for more FAQS about spay and neuter process.
Spay Day is an annual campaign of The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International to inspire people to save animal lives by spaying or neutering pets and feral cats.
How can you be a part? Vote in the Spay Day Pet Photo Contest!
Help groups win prizes and raise lifesaving funds for spay/neuter by voting for some of your favorite shelter/rescue adoptables. Each vote for SNAP costs just $1 (tax-deductible), with the money going to the eligible Spay Day Event Organizer of your choice to spay or neuter even more pets. Spay Day 2010 photo contest voters raised more than $253,000 for 225 U.S. event organizers, which organizers estimate will allow them to spay or neuter more than 8,500 additional animals.
Below is a link to Bella and brother Neeko who are contestants in the Spay Day Pet Photo Contest. Both were abandoned at the south shelter at 4 weeks of age. Due to their young age and lack of mommy, they were to either be euthanized or raised in foster care. They flourished in SNAP* foster and have just celebrated their 1st birthdays with their forever families. ~Vote for Neeko and Bella Here~
