Taking care of animals can be a whole lot of work but there are a ton of resources to help! The great thing about the internet is that there are answers and a community for all sorts of animals. There are Facebook groups, forums, podcasts, and more. If you have any questions about caring for animals or just about animals in the Pacific Northwest, here are some resources:

  • Backyard Chickens – this site has articles and a forum so there are a bunch of resources about caring for backyard chickens. I’ve personally used this site on several occasions looking for answers on different questions.
  • The Backyard Chicken Project – this project has a whole bunch of resources for those with backyard chickens! There are articles on chicken health, predators, breeds, food, and so much more.
  • This is Pawprint – this podcast is a great way to hear rescue stories and those who are working on finding forever homes for shelter dogs. It’s incredibly heartwarming and offers a whole lot of tips on caring for rescue animals.

There are also a whole bunch of other folks like me who are blogging about their experiences with dogs, cats, and other animals! Here are a few of my favorites:
