2008 National Dog Bite Prevention Week is Here

Avoid dog bites!Just reading Cindy Wolff’s column in The Commercial Appeal this morning and learned that the 3rd week of May is National Dog Bite Prevention Week.

Bottom line: We humans are responsible for preventing dog bites … and the prevention begins with the dog’s owner.

Cindy’s column lists several tips for preventing dog bites.

In addition, the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a website spotlighting dog bite prevention week. The CDC’s site links to many resources to help individuals and communities institute changes to prevent or lessen the chance of dog bite.

Resources from some other reputable groups on this topic:

The volunteers of Good Dog Rescue wish you and your four-legged friends a fun and happy life free of bites!
