Having a pet is fun, but pet ownership also comes with many responsibilities. If you already have a family pet, or are thinking about getting one, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Care for your pet
Caring for your animal is the greatest responsibility of pet ownership. Your pet depends on you for basic needs such as food, water and shelter. To keep your animal healthy, make sure your pet is registered with the post veterinarian, vaccinated, micro chipped and receives annual check-ups.
Pets require your time and attention. Whether your pet requires a lot of care or is low maintenance, find time to spend with your pet. Brushing your pet is a great way to spend some time together and can reduce pet hair around the house. Pets are social creatures and thrive on social stimulation.
Regularly exercise your pet to keep them happy and healthy. Going for a walk or playing around the house benefits both you and your pet.
Dealing with pet waste is one of those topics that every pet owner must deal with but no one likes to talk about. The fact is the majority of community and neighborhood pet problems result from inappropriate handling of pet waste. In addition, pet waste is the greatest source of potential health risk for your pet and your family. Scoop litter boxes daily and clean them regularly. If your pet spends time outside your house, clean up waste from the yard and common areas daily.
For your pet’s wellbeing make sure you always follow the Pet Policy outlined in the Resident Responsibility Guide. For more information on pet ownership visit the American Veterinary Medical Association’s website.
Our spotlight award winners are: CW2 Bradley McKinstry, W01 Jonathan Campos and SFC Paul Gomez. Spotlight Awards are given to residents who demonstrate pride in their home and community. Examples of this include keeping a tidy home, enhancing landscaping around the home or helping another resident. Thank you for helping to make Fort Rucker a great place to live!
Don’t forget! Applications for the Corvias Foundation $5,000 Educational Grants for spouses of active-duty service members are due Thursday, May 7. The application is available online at corviasfoundation.org.
Take advantage of spring weather! While the temperatures outside are comfortable, use a window or ceiling fan instead of the air conditioner. A fan only requires a tenth of the energy needed to run an air conditioner
Residents must follow Fort Rucker Regulation 608-6 in regards to child supervision. Parents desiring assistance can receive child care supervision options by contacting the Child, Youth & School Services Parent Central Service Offices at 334-255-9638. Babysitter certification courses are also available.
Your community calendar can help you stay up-to-date on trash, recycling, lawn care, resident events and community activities.
