Safety First!

Boy, Morton Salt and the ASPCA must know what a safety nut I am, cuz I got and email from a nice lady asking me if I would like to promote their safety campaign on my blog. I was all over it like pug fur on a couch. Turns out, Morton Salt has a pet safe ice melting product called Safe-T-Pet. In addition to being doubly safe by keeping us from slip sliding away, and making sure we don't lick any poison, or hurt our paws, they are launching a Winter Safety Campaign.
As part of the campaign, Morton Salt is donating $20,000 green papers to the ASPCA.
This campaign will last through January of 2012. By going to Morton Salts Facebook page and liking them, they will donate $1 to the ASPCA. Those dollars are in addition to the 20,000 they have already promised, up to $75,000! That's easy enough. I didn't even need to leave the safety of my couch to do that! Those dollars will go a long way in helping less fortunate animals than us, that's for sure. Here is a link to their FB page too

Not only all of that, but the nice lady who contacted me is giving me a pet safety kit to giveaway to one of you lucky readers! I was thinking of doing it next week sometime. Maybe a photo contest showing me how you are implementing the many safety tips offered at their site. What do you think?

Here are a few examples they told me about...

  • Using pet-friendly (salt free and chloride free) ice melters such as Morton® Safe-T-Pet®.
  • Keeping anti-freeze high on shelves in sealed containers and quickly cleaning any spills/leakage.
  • Limiting outdoor time for pets when temperatures drop below freezing.
  • Checking warm spots on cars, such as hoods, where animals might seek shelter from the cold.
  • Keeping pets on a leash, especially dogs, which can become disoriented or lost when once familiar surroundings are covered in ice and snow; and
  • Making sure pets are wearing identification tags and proper outerwear as needed                                                                                                       
  •                    So remember everybody, be safe out there!  I really encourage you all to check out more of the safety information being offered. I would be very sad if anything happened to any of you!                        


  1. Wow Wilma that is amazing! I too am so safety conscious, did you see me in my high visibility coat for dark winter walks around my village so that cars can see me?! Thank you for the safety tips, its always good to gain extra safety knowledge to keep us Puggys safe! Mum said thank you too, she hadn't thought of me getting disoriented by the snow! Good idea about the competition! Way to go ASPCA and Morton! Love, Licks and Pug Hugs from Frank x x x x x x x

  2. Nicely done and what an adorable pug photo! Happy Winter and holidays!

  3. That is exciting news Wilma and your doing a great job helping them.

  4. Hi Wilma,

    Great advice! Austin usually doesn't have snow or ice, if it does, its gone in a couple of hours. But where I'm going for Christmas does. I will have Mom get the word out by liking the FB link.

    Thanks for the winter tips for a little puggie that isn't use to all the winter weather precautions.


  5. Thank You Wilma for the safety tip!
    These tips will help lots of us!

  6. That is a pretty cool product. Mom is always worried about what she uses to melt the ice on the sidewalk because she is worried about hurting our paws or ingesting something we shouldn't.

    Safety first!

    Pugs & Kisses,

    Yoda, Brutus & Ellie
