Brooklyn Car Service “fixes” cats too!

Monday, March 2nd, 2015


Bath Beach car service in Brooklyn also has a veterinary facility for 30 strays on its first floor. It is here where volunteer veterinarians fix needy cats for free on Sundays and Mondays.

In the past three years, Big Apple Car has given nearly 9,000 feral felines the old snip-snip, according to Leah Clemente the owner, helping to hold down the stay population.

“Do you realize how many cats have not been born because of that?” She said. “And still, it’s like spitting in the ocean.”

“The majority of people who bring cats here are people from various communities who want to control the level of feral cats in their immediate areas,”

Ferals in Peril raised $19,000 to outfit the facility. The Toby Project, a cat-care organization started by Manhattan vet Andrew Kaplan, pays the vets for their time. The group collects donations and small vaccination fees to pay for supplies, and the rent is free, Szalaiko said. Ferals in Peril also trying to get its paws on a $10,000 grant from the Bruce Geary Foundation to fund surgeries, he said.


How to read your dog’s body language!

Friday, February 20th, 2015


Written by Kate Perry

What’s your dog trying to tell you?

Most canine misbehavior can be attributed to a breakdown of communication between you and your pooch. People are primarily
verbal-centric, but dogs are not. In addition to scent, they speak to one another and to us with
body language, facial expressions and vocalizations.

Understanding “canine speak” becomes critical when we want to curb, remove or interrupt
a behavior we don’t like. It can also be applied to help us shape or capture behavior
we like and want to reinforce.

Watch and learn…
Relaxed tail wag – “I’m friendly”
Stiff tail wag – “I’m on guard”
Tail tucked – “I’m afraid”
Eyes darting – “I’m nervous” or “I’m anxious”
Eyes staring – “Don’t mess with me”
Ears pulled back – “I’m scared” or “I’m concerned”
Ears flickering forward – “I’m curious”
Mouth relaxed – “I’m calm”
Mouth tight, baring teeth, low growl – “Back off”
Body in freeze position – “I’m conflicted or feeling fear”
Panting, drooling or yawning – “I’m stressed”
Rolling on back with open mouth – “Life is good!”

Tv Shoot for Veria Living Naturally Beautiful

Thursday, December 18th, 2014


We did a taped shoot for Veria Living’s “Naturally Beautiful” hosted by the lovely Erika Vetrini in Fall 2013 and unfortunately it still has not aired :(

We were slated to be episode 134 but they have only aired 20 or episodes so not looking good…

This has happened a few times so I think from here on in we will mainly do live shoots like we did Good Morning America and only ones that will for sure be seen by new yorkers.

We get calls often from International TV shows wanting to film but unfortunately this does not help Petaholics as we would not offer services in those foreign countries furthermore they usually want to film “pack walks” for effect which we do not do.

We are open to local NYC Press and/or major national coverage as long as it is not a reality show.
