We’re sure your Halloween celebration includes some ghoulish fun, which we strongly encourage.  And though we‘d never want to make your blood boil, we do feel the need to remind you that the usual party etiquette guidelines still apply.

Halloween is such fun! Using these guidelines will help keep those bad goblins away.

Remember when you were little and a stray dog or cat would wander into your yard?  If you were like me, you immediately got water, food, or a saucer of milk and befriended the needy animal.

Times may have changed, but there are still many furry friends who need us.  In fact, there are more than ever.

Around 8 million animals find their way to a shelter each year.  And there are many more who still roam our neighborhoods.  Who takes care of them?  No one.  This is why they are so dependent on those who care enough to leave a bit of food and water outside.  Animals need guardian angels.

As an etiquette consulting company, we spend a lot of time encouraging people to be kind and attentive to others around us.  But when we extend this courtesy to more than just the people around us, and include animals, and Mother Earth, we create an entirely new (and larger) level of respect.

Some things to consider when it comes to animals:

If you are not able to adopt a pet, we encourage you to support your local animal shelter.  Even when you can’t directly help someone in need, it’s always good to support them
as you can.

On behalf of all the animals in our lives, we thank you!

It’s been said that no good deed goes unpunished.  We believe no good deed goes unnoticed.

Doing something nice for someone else is the ultimate win-win.  You feel good, they feel good, and you can count on more good things happening, too.

Here are our favorite ways to spread the nice-ness!

You never have to look far to find a good deed just begging to be done.
