If you can't take your pet along on your holiday vacation, consider either boarding it or finding a pet sitter.  Choose carefully, because you want your best friend to be safe and happy while you are away.

Thanks to our listeners and supporters, all of us as Alabama Public Radio have a lot to be grateful for!  We hope you will join us as we celebrate the holidays with special programming that will run throughout the month of December and ending on New Year's Day.

Including our pets in our holiday celebrations is something many of us like to do. Whether you're staying home or hitting the road, a little planning can help to make the holiday safe and happy for everyone!



Pet owners love to share the holidays with their animal companions, but we have to be careful.  Some of our holiday traditions may not be pet-friendly!

A lot of us really enjoy the Thanksgiving tradition of good food shared with our loved ones, but this holiday maybe we shouldn't share quite so much with our four-footed family members.
