Animal Help Desk

Does your dog go crazy when you leave home? Is your cat marking everywhere but the litterbox? From time to time, we all have questions about our pets. This pet issue library has many useful links to information and tips put together by experts for quick reading.

You also can email us at with specific questions and we'll work to get an answer for you. Before surrendering your pet to a shelter, reach out to one of our experts for help. Please allow 48 to 72 hours for the Animal Help Desk to respond.
