We hope that you all had a restful and safe holiday weekend and are enjoying this turn in weather to get some sun while staying healthy and maintaining social distance. Don’t forget to take some time to get out for a walk in your neighborhood and, if you can, plant some seeds.  

Did you participate in The Great American Takeout last week? If not, don’t worry, it’happening every Tuesday! The goal is to help support local restaurants and share your love of our fantastic San Rafael cuisine with the world.

COVID-19 Pet Preparedness  

A lot of folks have been asking, “What should I do with my pet if I get sick with COVID-19?”  

The Marin Humane Society believes that the best place your pet can possibly be is at home with you, even if you’re ill. If you believe you’re infected with COVID-19, avoid close contact with your pets if possible and have another member of the household care for them. If you must care for them yourself, wash your hands before and after any contact with your pets. You should also distance yourself from other animals from outside of your household and prevent your pets from coming in contact with other animals.

Follow all precautions provided by the CDC and create a plan for your pets in case you need to be hospitalized. The shelter should only be your last resort if you’re unable to care for your pet.

Instead, arrange for a family member, neighbor, or friend who can take your pets, and arrange for a back-up in case your first choice isn’t available. Gather all your pet’s necessary supplies in a go bag so you don’t need to track them down in the middle of an emergency.

Your go-bag should include:

  • Contact information for the person or people who will be caring for your pet
  • Your pet’s food and treats, leashes, toys, beds, and any other supplies they would need during a two-week period
  • Collar and ID tags (be sure your pet’s microchip is also up to date) 
  • A carrier or crate 
  • Your veterinarian’s contact information 
  • Your pet’s medications, along with instructions 
  • Vaccination records

Being prepared is the best thing you can do to protect your pet!

Esperamos que todos hayan tenido un fin de semana de vacaciones tranquilo y seguro y estén disfrutando de este cambio en el clima para tomar el sol mientras se mantienen saludables y mantienen la distancia social. No olvide tomarse un tiempo para salir a caminar en su vecindario y, si puede, plantar algunas semillas.

¿Participaste en The Great American Takeout la semana pasada? Si no, no te preocupes, ¡está sucediendo todos los martes! El objetivo es ayudar a los restaurantes locales y compartir su amor por nuestra fantástica cocina de San Rafael con el mundo. Simplemente ordene comida para llevar en un restaurante de San Rafael, dígales a sus amigos que también lo hagan, luego publique una foto o video de su comida en las redes sociales etiquetadas con #thegreatamericantakeout.
