Pets & Plants

We love our pets like children. And we love our plants too! This spring photo session fundraiser was a collaboration between neighbor shops Jade & Co and UP Best Pet Grooming. Over $200 was collected to benefit NW Spay & Neuter and we’re already planning the next one! All photo credits are by kick-ass photographer Van Gachnang.

But some plants can be toxic to curious pets. A question I get asked frequently is “which plants are safe for my pet?” I posed the same question to University Place Veterinary Hospital who gave this response. “Thanks for looking out for the pets! Here’s some good websites that are trustworthy.”
