It is officially Autumn! The perfect time of the year to get out and enjoy the cooler weather with our pets. If your dog loves to play in the water, or the mud, he might need a bath often, but do you really want to bathe that fuzzy friend in your tub, or have him tracking wet paws and sopping coat down your hallway? Check out the new iClean Dog Washing Stations at Ukiah. Coming soon to Lakeport! These revolutionary dog washing stations feature warm water, shampoo, conditioner, and dryers! You can easily clean up that muddy pup and THEN bring him home, rather than the other way around. Take a look at the video to see how easy and convenient it is to use the iClean – then head down to Rainbow to test it out!
No matter why you shop at Rainbow – maybe it is the huge selection of top-quality pet foods? The variety of beds, coats, toys and treats? Or the savings of Rainbow’s Preferred Customer Card? – be sure to check out the new Fall clothing arriving now! Keep warm on the chilly morning dog walks with sweatshirts from Carhartt – built to last! Put your best foot forward with the perfect boots for work, walk or dancing! As the weather gets colder, a Carhartt jacket is in order, and when the rains start Rainbow has you covered too. Take a tour through the clothing department on your way to the Canidae and Blue Buffalo!

Wow! What a great job, Orphan Dog! Look at all the adoptions that happened at the Bay Area Pet Fair. Many of these were “fire dogs” who lost their homes due to the latest fires in Lake County. A busy weekend, to be sure, but so worth it! 4,100 dogs rescued so far … and counting!
Do you need a puppy in your life? There are so many dogs and cats looking for homes – all of them deserve a fur-ever home! But, it seems that Mendo Shelter Pets Rescue is overflowing with puppies right now! From tiny to huge (Mastiff crosses, anyone?) if you are thinking of adopting a pup, head over to Mendo Shelter Pets Rescue’s Facebook page to meet them!
Don’t forget – you can donate to these rescue groups, and more, right at Rainbow Ag! Look for the donation bins by the door if you want to donate food, treats, or blankets. Or, just ask a cashier how to make a monetary donation.
Here’s an evacuation tip that is worth practicing – using a pillow case as an emergency cat carrier! Don’t leave your kitty behind because you don’t have a crate or carrier. You can safely use a sturdy pillow case to transport your kitty in an emergency. Do follow the safety guidelines especially when removing the cat from the bag! (Click the image for a larger view)
