Spokane County SCRAPS provides tips for keeping your pet safe from holiday hazards

Spokane County SCRAPS provides tips for keeping your pet safe from holiday hazards

Spokane County SCRAPS wants to warn pet owners of the hazards the holidays can bring to your four legged friends.


 

"Things that make the holidays a great time of year - cookies, presents, and a house full of company - can actually be hazards to our four-legged friends," said Nancy Hill, Regional Director of SCRAPS. "We advise pet owners to take a minute to make sure their house is pet friendly."


 

According to SCRAPS, here are a few holiday items that can be particularly harmful to pets:


 

  • Holiday Lighting and Candles

SCRAPS said these are especially dangerous to pets that like to chew. Electrical shock can occur when a pet chomps down on an electrical cord, causing tongue lacerations and possible death. SCRAPS suggests using LED candles instead of actual flames and place them into hard-to-reach places so that pets can not access them.

Spokane Arts seeks artists to develop memorial honoring fallen heroes

Spokane Arts Fund, in partnership with the Gold Star Families, the City of Spokane, and the Spokane Public Facilities District seeks an artist, or artist team residing in Washington and Idaho, to develop a memorial honoring fallen heroes that have served post- 9/11.

 

The memorial will be sited on the south side of the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena. The selected artist or artist team will work with Spokane Arts Fund, The Spokane Public Facilities District staff, and the representatives from the Gold Star Families from design through construction of the project. During the design phase, representatives from the Gold Star Families will heavily inform the process.

 

The artist will work with Spokane Arts Fund, the Gold Star Families and the Spokane Public Facilities District to develop a permanent public art memorial for the Spokane Arena. The desired artistic approach will create a sculptural plaza that suggests a place where people will gather for a variety of observances and events. The artwork should represent and be inclusive of all Armed Services with particular attention to post 9/11 fallen heroes.
