Fourth of July Pet Safety

Do’s and Don’ts for Keeping your Pup Safe this Independence Day

Fourth of July Fireworks are fun and exciting for us, but can be truly terrifying for our pets. It can cause them to go into Fight or Flight Mode, either destroying the house or leaving a Fido sized hole in the window screen. More dogs go missing and end up in shelters on Fourth of July weekend than any other time of year. According to PetAmberAlert.com, animal control sees a 30-60% increase in lost pets on July 4-6 every year. Sadly only 14% are returned to their owners. We want your dog to be safe and happy this Independence Day, so we’ve put together a list of Do’s and Dont’s to minimize the negative impact on your best friend.

Affordable Housing in Denver

Denver home prices have been pedaling up a steep slope since the great recession of 2008. Thanks to Denver’s strong economy and growing popularity for both tourism and relocation, the residential real estate scene is booming. But, some Colorado wages have failed to keep pace with ballooning home values and the number of newly built houses have fallen behind that of new Denver transplants - creating high competition for houses that do hit the market.

Colorado's impressively strong real estate market creates problems for some looking to buy a home. Denver’s affordable housing regulations make some headway in alleviating this problem for those who qualify, requiring multi-dwelling new builds to include affordable units.

According to Susan Adams, "For the first time ever, our average home prices exceeded $500,000. This isn't especially surprising given the record home prices, low inventory, and high demand that we've seen for the last few years."
