Pearl was our featured cat on the sixth day of Christmas! She is a 9 year old beauty who loves your attention! She is not shy around people and will walk up and ask for love right away! She does well with other cats, but secretly wouldn’t mind being the only child. Why don’t you add this beautiful Pearl to your collection? She’ll look beautiful on you!
12 year old Natalie is the kinda gal you can’t help but gush over. She’s so lovely! Natalie is a kindhearted senior gal who is more petite than she appears in photos – she weighs only 40 pounds. She’s had the unfortunate luck of bouncing between rescue groups and different families when all she wants to do is settle in to a retired life, for good. Natalie is a wonderful family dog and we could truly gush about her forever!
Misty was our featured dog on the third day of Christmas! She is a 5-year-old Staffordshire mix, who was rescued outside of a school in Hollywood, SC. She loves spending time with other dogs and adores attention from people. Misty gets a little nervous inside but will adjust in time. If you’re looking for your soulmate, Misty would make the perfect companion. Let’s help Misty find her home for the New Year!
Chief was our featured dog on the ninth day of Christmas! He is one of the most lovable and handsome hounds at HHAS. He is nine years old and loves giving kisses. Chief is excellent around other dogs and people of all ages. He was recently in a foster home and they are happy to report the Chief is fully house-trained! Chief would love to help you keep away those January blues!

The only thing bigger than Stan’s love of the animals at Hallie Hill is the animals’ love for him! He can be found making life better for both people and animals by keeping the bunkhouse and barn sparkling and smelling sweet, and cleaning up after all…those…puppies!! All the animals love his easy demeanor and soft touch. Stan is always quick with a kind word and one leaves a conversation with him smiling and feeling better than you did when the conversation began! We are appreciative of the variety of ways Stan supports us ALL at Hallie Hill. Thank you Stan, we love you!

Christmas is a particularly busy time of year at the ASPCA Animal Poison Control
Center, and the five items below account for the majority of holiday calls.
1. CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE
This tasty treat is hands-down the winner for most calls at Christmas
(Halloween and Valentine’s Day don’t even come close). Why?
Usually it’s because of wrapped chocolate gifts left under the
tree. And often a pet has shredded wrapping paper to get to
the treat, thus destroying the chance to learn exactly what ingredients
have been ingested. Also, with the growing popularity
of higher cocoa content, it takes even less candy to get our
four-legged friends into a world of trouble. To test your treatment
strategy, check out this chocolate ingestion case study.
2. TREE PRESERVATIVES
What is generally seen is mild gastrointestinal upset. However, if there is bacterial
contamination, the potential for gastrointestinal upset can be more significant.
Treatment plan? Dilute, monitor at home and move on. Read about some
more holiday ingestion worries.
Poinsettias are primarily mucous-membrane irritants – and
despite the worry they cause pet owners, the plants aren’t
usually too dangerous if treated properly. Check out our
poinsettia ingestion treatment article.
Guests. Winter colds. Kids home from school. This trifecta of
medication dangers calls for caution. Add the fact that worried pet owners generally
can’t remember how much medicine was actually in that little baggie that
the pup ate, and you can just feel a headache coming on. Any and all medications
need to be stored up high or in a locked cabinet. Check out our five tips to
avoid improper pet medication exposures.
Yes, some days we feel like going home and having a stiff drink
after dealing with all those chocolate cases. However, right now
we are talking about the little Chihuahua who likes to scale the
couch and help herself to the owner’s eggnog. The good news:
Pets usually vomit alcohol after ingestion. The bad news: Alcohol
is absorbed quickly
