JULY ADOPTIONS AUGUST ADOPTIONS SEPTEMBER ADOPTIONS DOGS: 2 CATS: 6 DOGS: 9 CATS: 8 DOGS: 13 CATS: 6 Oh, the holidays; such a fun time of year! At HSL we love when the holidays come around so we can celebrate with the animals. We dig out all of the silly Halloween costumes and dress them up, give them extra special dinners for Thanksgiving, and buy presents to watch them unwrap for Christmas. Holiday dinners are amazing and we tend to want to share them with our fur family, but did you know a lot of those foods can actually harm our pets? Some of the holiday foods your pet shouldn’t eat include: turkey (in large amounts), turkey bones, gravy, stuffing, raisins, apple pie, and onions. Instead of setting a plate down for your pooch, here is a fun recipe to make just for them! Pumpkin Pie For Dogs Ingredients: • Oat flour (pulsed into a flour consistency) • Unsweetened applesauce • Banana • Unsweetened pureed pumpkin • OPTIONAL: Low-fat plain yogurt for topping Instructions • Preheat oven to 350º • For the topping: • You can thicken the yogurt by placing it in a mesh strainer lined with cheesecloth or a large coffee filter, • Set the strainer over a bowl to catch the whey. • For the crust: • In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour and applesauce until a nice dough ball forms. • Divide the dough into 24 equal sized pieces • Place a ball in each well of a mini muffin tin and press to flatten. • Bake the crust for 8 min or until just starting to color • Let cool before removing from pan. • For the filling: • Peel and mash the banana in a large bowl. • Add the pumpkin puree and stir to combine. • Divide the filling among the pie crusts and top with yogurt. 5
