STA Tips for our Furry Friends!

Hi Friends,

Believe it or not, bad air quality affects your pets just as much as it affects you! Animals have smaller, more sensitive lungs than humans do, which actually makes it harder for us animals to breathe than it is for you when air quality is poor. In fact, when the air is really smoggy, especially on Spare The Air days, your pets can feel up to 10 times worse than humans do.

You can help protect your furry friends from air pollution by following these tips:

  • Plan indoor activities
  • Have your parents download the free Sacramento Region Air Quality app to check the air quality forecast on a daily basis and receive Spare the Air alerts. This way, you can plan ahead and help protect your pets when the air quality is forecast to be yucky

  • If you are attending an outdoor event, make sure it’s safe for your pet to go with you
  • Never leave your pet in the car – it gets really hot in there, really fast
  • Make sure your pets have lots of water
  • Let your pet play outside in the early morning or late evening, when air quality is better
  • Plan indoor play dates with your pet’s friends

  • Let your pet take a dip in the pool, or use a hose to help them cool off

Scooter, the YouTube sensation!

Hi Friends,

By now you know that my job is to teach everyone about the dangers of air pollution and all the ways we can fight it. But, did you also know that I’m a YouTube sensation?! When I’m not out and about in the community, stopping by schools, parks and other awesome events, I like to use my talents to create awesome videos that teach you ways you can help Spare The Air. If you haven’t visited my videos page, I recommend you do! I worked very hard and I’m extremely proud of them. My videos page can be found at the bottom of the Scooter’s World home page, or by clicking on the image below.

Below are individual links to my videos posted on YouTube, so you can share them easily with your family and friends!
