FACE Awarded a Grant from the Petco Foundation and Blue Buffalo

Thank You Facebook Post

The FACE Foundation is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a grant from the Petco Foundation and Blue Buffalo.  This grant will be designated towards helping pet parents who cannot afford the cost of their dog or cat’s cancer treatments.

The regular criteria for FACE Funding does not allow the FACE Foundation to fund cancer treatments. Now, with the help of this grant from the Petco Foundation and Blue Buffalo, the FACE Foundation will be able to save even more lives in our community by helping provide financial assistance for the necessary veterinary care for local pets who have been diagnosed with cancer.
We would like to thank both the Petco Foundation and Blue Buffalo for their generous support and for helping us save the lives of local family pets.

Pets do like music, but prefer their own picks

Classical or rock is not for the animal crowd, say researchers

Many pet owners leave their home radios playing all day for the listening pleasure of their dogs and cats. Station choices vary. “We have a very human tendency to project onto our pets and assume that they will like what we like,” said Charles Snowdon, an authority on the musical preferences of animals. “People assume that if they like Mozart, their dog will like Mozart. If they like rock music, they say their dog prefers rock.”

Against the conventional wisdom that music is a uniquely human phenomenon, ongoing research shows that animals actually do have the capacity for music. But rather than liking classical or rock, Snowdon, an animal psychologist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has discovered that animals march to the beat of a different drum altogether. They enjoy what he calls “species-specific music”: tunes specially designed using the pitches, tones and tempos that are familiar to their particular species.
