Rescuing Pets

"Pet experts say a cocoa mulch can pose a serious health risk to pets.

This type of mulch is made of the husks of the cocoa bean.

Local landscapers said it has become popular in northeast Ohio recently because of its aroma. But that aroma can also reportedly attract dogs and cats.

If a pet consumes a large amount of mulch it can cause them serious digestive problems, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, or ASPCA."

"One of four kittens born to a mother cat rescued from a shelter in Georgia, this kitten will be bottle-fed until old enough to eat solid food. A local woman’s compassion compels her to travel wherever necessary to rescue entire litters of animals such as these kittens from being euthanized at overcrowded animal shelters. "
