Heroic Pets

Pets aren’t just beloved members of the family—they can also serve as the ultimate clawed, fanged, taloned, and hooved home protectors.

Yes, that’s right. Canines are far from the only (or even best) watchdogs in town. Cats, pigs, ferrets, and even birds have proved their worth keeping homes and their inhabitants safe from fire, poisonous gas, bullets, and even bears.

While pets can’t always save a place single-handedly (or -pawedly), having them is good not just for the soul, but for our property, too.
