Pet fire safety

Tips for Preventing House Fires:

🔥 Lock knobs on stoves – so your pet cannot nudge to stove and ignite a burner

🔥 Don’t leave candles unattended when you leave a room, so a paw or tail cannot tip them over and cause a house fire

🔥 Pet-proof your home! Your fur baby needs pet-proofing as if it were a baby, remove any loose wires or potential hazards

🔥 Beware of glass water bowls on wooden decks – on hot days the sun rays can start a fire through a glass water bowl – use ceramic or stainless steel instead 

How to Prepare for an Emergency?

  • Put a rescue alert sticker in a front-facing window to alert rescue workers there’s a pet in your home
  • Arrange a place for pets to say if you evacuate your home – not safe for you, not safe for your pet! 
  • Make an emergency kit – have your kit in a safe location near front doors for easy access 
  • Keep identification on your pet – and ensure it’s up to date! 

Great products to help you prevent pet-fires:

Pet Fire Safety with Scoop 2. How to prepare for a pet-fire emergency?

Welcome to Scoop2

Scoop2 Blog, welcome to scoop2!

As you have read on our home page, our mission is simple, we want to create a community of like-minded responsible pet owners who care for the environment and respect our non-pet-loving neighbours. But anyone can be a part of Scoop2! If you are an environmental enthusiast, we want you too!

We are committed to helping eliminate dog waste, and trash in our environment that has been left behind. Our goal is to protect our earth, mainly our watershed, and both humans and wildlife. 

Growing up we all heard the popular saying, “Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but foot prints” or something similar. Here at Scoop2 we believe the same, and want to take it that extra mile, to scoop (at least) 2 pieces of litter or pet waste when you are out on a hike or walk and dispose of it properly.

Why is this important? Animal waste contains bacteria and parasites, such as, E. coli, Giardia and Salmonella. Waste washes from private property and our streets and parks into our waterways, which pollutes our watershed. Same with garbage, there is a reason we have been shifting from plastics to recyclable materials – For example, plastic straws are no longer available at most fast-serve restaurants – save the turtles people! Waste and trash in our water poses a health risk to both humans and other animals. Interested in learning more? Check out our Frequently Asked Questions Page to answer some common Q&A’s. A question we don’t have answered? Send us a Contact request and we will be sure to respond as soon as possible.
