Just Paws strongly values, supports and encourages pet adoption through rescue organizations and shelters. All of Just Paws Owner’s pets are rescue kitties and are wonderful, kind and loving companions. There are so many wonderful animals at shelters and rescue organizations needing loving “forever” homes. Though all animals need homes, Just Paws strongly advocates pet adoption through shelters and rescues as opposed to breeders. Please support your local shelter and/or rescue organizations by volunteering with them, adopting your pets through them, or both.
Just Paws strongly values and recommends spaying or neutering of your companion animals to help control the pet population and to help keep your pet(s) in the best possible health.
Just Paws strongly values feeding your pet(s) a good, healthy diet that is biologically appropriate for them. Outstanding canned, dry and raw foods with no by-products, fillers or preservatives, are available at local stores such as Pro Feed, Inc. in Vienna, VA. Their staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and able to answer any questions you may have and recommend the best food for your pet(s).
Just Paws strongly values providing your pet with daily exercise and play. This keeps both your pet, and you, healthy and happy!
Just Paws strongly values and encourages the practice of NOT de-clawing cats. This ensures they keep their ability to stretch and to defend themselves if they are ever lost outside their homes.
Just Paws strongly supports in-home vacation pet sitting and overnight pet sitting as opposed to boarding pets at a kennel. This keeps them in familiar surroundings (their home), minimizing their anxiety, ensures that their daily routines are followed while you are away, and assists in crime deterrence for extra peace of mind, by providing your home with a lived-in look through rotating lights, curtains and blinds and retrieving newspapers and mail.
Just Paws strongly values and supports Fairfax County’s mandatory dog-leash laws and laws governing cleaning up after your pets. Keeping dogs on leashes when they are outside in non-fenced areas is essential for their safety, as well as the safety of other dogs and pedestrians. It also helps to keep them safer on busy streets where cars coming and going are prevalent. Cleaning up after your pets keeps our environment cleaner and more pleasant for all concerned.
