Snyder and First Coast No More Homeless Pets Team Up for a 2nd Summer

Snyder and First Coast No More Homeless Pets Team Up for a 2nd Summer

Posted by
Ed Miller on Wed, Jul 20, 2016

The mercury is riding high as the summer sun shines down on Jacksonville! Scorching seasonal temperatures are here to stay, and everyone is feeling the heat, humans and our four-legged friends alike. Our pets are just as susceptible to the dangers of hot weather as we are, so it’s important to watch out for the health of our pets and take steps to keep them safe from the heat.

Not all pets are lucky enough to have cool homes and loving owners who look out for them. That’s why Snyder Heating and Air Conditioning has teamed up with First Coast No More Homeless Pets for a second year to help animals in need! Help us raise money and awareness by posting pictures of your pet staying cool this summer. Tag it with the hashtag #mypetiscool, and we’ll donate $1 to help further First Coast’s mission to end needless euthanasia of pets in our community.

First Coast No More Homeless Pets combines a host of much-needed services, such as affordable spay/neuter services, pet retention help, and adoption initiatives to assist those in need with keeping their pets. Their efforts ease the pressure on local animal shelters to house or put down homeless pets.

Keeping Pets Healthy in the Summer Heat

With Florida’s gorgeous summer weather, many flee to the great outdoors for long days of fun in the sun. Humans know how to keep themselves cool, but pets often have a more difficult time maintaining a healthy temperature. Summertime also presents specific hazards that may harm pets if their owners aren’t aware. Consider these tips as you enjoy the season:

  • Never leave your pet in a car! Not even for a few minutes. Not even with the window cracked. Vehicle interiors reach unsafe temperatures more quickly than you may think. Your pet can suffer organ failure and die more quickly in a vehicle than you’d think. If you can’t take your pet inside at your destination, leave him at home.
  • Take care while giving your pet exercise in the summer. Try to limit exercise during the hottest hours, instead choosing to do so during the morning or evening. Asphalt and concrete can become unbearably hot on paws, so try to walk your dog on grass instead. Always bring water during exercise times.
  • Be certain your pet always has fresh water available. Inside or outside, but especially outside, your pets need water to keep themselves hydrated in the high temperatures.
  • Bring your pets inside. The temperatures outside can be harmful to your outdoor pets. If your pet must be outside, provide ample shade in a well-ventilated area, such as a porch. Ice in the water bowl can help cool your pets as well, but be careful not to overwater your pet, as it can put them at risk of harmful bloating.
  • High humidity may overheat dogs. Dogs pant to keep themselves cool. This evaporates moisture from their lungs and helps keep their temperatures down. Humidity prevents them from cooling themselves properly. On humid days, it is even more important to keep the ambient temperatures around them controlled.
  • Don’t count on a fan to keep them cool. Pets do not cool themselves in the same manner humans do. While a breeze helps us to regulate our temperatures, it does very little for our furry friends.

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

-Mike Daniels

Snyder Heating and AC is dependable, always on time and techs have always been courteous and knowledgeable. Emanuel was a great addition to the company. He was friendly and knew what he was doing. Thank you for great service.

-Linda Ackley

Snyder came in and did a total overhaul of our duct system. They had a great knowledge of what to do to make our home so comfortable! The technicians were all so professional and took great care of us! We’re so thankful for their expertise. Great and easy communication with the call center. We will definitely use them again!

-Crystal Hill

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

-Michele Bauer

Very prompt, professional, courteous, and cleaned up after repair. Had water line break in my front yard and no pressure. Very pleased and would highly recommend Snyder for all your plumbing, and AC needs. Thank you for making a rough morning get better with ease and professionalism.

-Chuck Jr.

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation. He did a great job converting our old 3 knob shower to one. Looks great! Professional and courteous. 100% recommend this company, especially Clint.
