Meet Bell the Wonder Pug

Bell the Wonder Pug is an adorable, raven haired pug, that always seems to bring joy everywhere she goes. Bell rescued her human, Susan, many years ago- and they have since become the best of friends. Bell accompanies Susan on many of her important missions (and is usually rewarded with an ice cream cone through thru!). On days where her pug powers aren’t direly needed, Bell catches up on her blog, while enjoying pug rubs on Susan’s lap.

Community Outreach: How Students in Colorado Springs are raising awareness for Animal Rights



On May 4th, 2018, the students from the North Middle School Public Achievement Club held a Pet Information Fair to raise awareness for Animal Rights in the community. The students organized this incredible event, which included multiple booths, a raffle, goodie bags, treats and lots of FUN! They invited various organizations with a passion for the fair and ethical treatment of animals, including PlayTime Pet Sitters and Dog Walkers. The students and attendees then had the oppurtunity to chat with these organizations, and learn more about the services offered for animals in the community.

PlayTime Pet Sitters and Dog Walkers were honored to be asked to be a part of this event, and were astounded by the brilliance and passion of all the young minds we met that day. We got the chance to chat with Max Blackburn, the Public Achievement Coach, to learn more about the organization, and to reflect on what the students learned throughout the process of developing the Pet Information Fair.

What You Owe Your Pets

You owe them a chance to survive. Protection from traffic, harmful plants, the weather, etc., is your responsibility.

Advice for Dogs

You should have your human fixed, even if it’s a purebred human. There are too many humans, and our big cities are over populated with them to the point where we are unable to feed and shelter all of them.
