Steps for Pets
Steps for Pets started a few years ago when a friend of the family's had a Yorkie that loved to get on the bed at night and for naps in the afternoon. Well the problem was that Hugh (the Yorkie) needed help getting up to his favorite spot each time and thus the solution, the Two-Step Pet Step. It didn't take long before a handful of friends and family all wanted a set for their own pets and thus the start of StepsforPets.com. Since this time we have strived to find only the best products to include on our website from pet furniture for cats, to mugs, mouse pads, and much more. See a picture of the Steps for Pets Cat Condo on the Animal Radio webcam.

Dogs Deserve Better - Chain Off 2005
Chaining is not only inhumane for dogs, but has taken a severe toll on this nation's children as well. In the period from October 2003 until October 2004, there were at least 20 children killed or seriously injured by chained dogs across the country. Chained dogs, unsocialized with humans, can become very territorial of their tiny space, and any two year old who wanders into this space can be attacked and killed before adults can intervene. Please consider today how you can help the dogs in your neighborhood. If you see a chained dog or a penned dog daily, it is time to take action. Please join Dogs Deserve Better on July 4th in taking a stand against this mistreatment of dogs.
