Are You a Dog Lover?

A volunteer committee is being formed to examine the feasibility of a dog park in Monroe. Catnip & Carrots Animal Bunch (a local animal welfare organization) is spearheading the discussion together with help from our Public Works Dept.

The first meeting will be on Wednesday, January 18, 2012 at 2 pm & again at 7 pm at the new Community Room, 6 East Ave., next to the new library. The Dog Park committee will be discussing locations, feasibility, funding, and other related items. All interested residents are invited to attend this information session. Read more »

Community Food Drive Nov 27-Dec 11, 2010

This Christmas, Catnip & Carrots Animal Bunch of Monroe is urging residents to remember the animals, as well as your neighbors, who have been adversely affected by economic hardship.

With rising unemployment, home foreclosures and the downward economy, local food pantries are struggling to meet the growing demands of hungry families. As a result, our animal shelter and rescues are dealing with an influx of abandoned pets because their owners can no longer afford to keep them. Read more »

Pet Food Needed - Can You Help?

The recent community food drive is over (THANK YOU MONROE for making this a HUGE sucess!) and all items have been delivered to the Shared Harvest Food Bank, PAWS of Middletown and Animal Friends Humane Society but...

We have since learned there is a huge need for pet food at the New Life Vineyard pantry in Hamilton (which services all of Butler County) and Franklin Area Community Services which serves Warren County. Reach Out Lakota also accepts and offers pet food for West Chester & Liberty Township residents. These are the only pantries in our area that offer help for needy family pets. I've spoken to all the pantry Directors and they have been amazed at the need to help animals this Christmas season. Not to mention our shelters and rescues are all overwhelmed with pets being given up for adoption – simply because their owners can no longer afford to keep them. Too often when turned away from a no-kill shelter, family pets are simply abandoned to the streets to fend for themselves for fear of the alternative. Read more »

Have You Seen Me?

Invisible Fences – the Perfect Solution?

Tag: Catnip and Carrots, Dogs, Fence

The volunteers at C&C have recently been coming across dogs leaving the confines of their electric fences. While these containment systems are becoming quite popular, we thought we should let prospective buyers (and current owners) know the hidden dangers.


Invisible-type fences work by utilizing an electronic collar kept around your pet’s neck which reads impulses from underground wires or radiowave units. When your pet gets near the border of your yard, the computer generates a signal causing a small electro shock or stimulation to surprise your pet and scare them away from the boundary, therefore keeping them within the confines of your yard.


There are advantages to this system; i.e. lower cost than traditional fencing, conform to HOA rules, the ability to be run around pools, spas, gardens or off-limits play areas, and even underwater or through rocky, hilly or wooded areas. Any design or type of area can be customized for your pet. There are even systems that can be run indoors to keep your pets off counters, furniture, out of the baby’s room, etc. Read more »

Stray Animals on the Rise in Monroe

Tag: Catnip and Carrots

Spring is here and the volunteers with Catnip & Carrots Animal Bunch have seen an increased number of strays running loose in Monroe. Sadly, these animals are NOT wearing tags or collars! Whether on main thoroughfares like Route 63 or lost in your neighborhood, these innocent animals are scared, stopping traffic and oblivious to the dangers they are causing residents and drivers. And should you try and catch a stray pet and be bitten or scratched? That good deed could lead to painful and lengthy rabies treatments. Read more »

Catnip and Carrots Donates Animal Respirators

At the January 8, 2008 City Council meeting, Catnip and Carrots Animal Bunch of Monroe donated seven sets of specialized animal respiratory masks to the Monroe Fire Department and Paramedic Units. They will be carried on each emergency vehicle in their fleet: enough for the entire community. They could potentially assist animals in surrounding areas when called upon, not to mention canine SWAT units.
