Having a pet is fun, but pet ownership also comes with many responsibilities. If you already have a family pet, or are thinking about getting one, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Care for your pet
Caring for your animal is the greatest responsibility of pet ownership. Your pet depends on you for basic needs such food, water and shelter. To keep your animal healthy, make sure your pet is registered with the post veterinarian, vaccinated and gets annual check-ups.
Pets require your time and attention. Whether your pet requires a lot of care or is low maintenance, find time to spend with your pet. Brushing your pet is a great way to spend some time together and can reduce pet hair around the house.
Regularly exercise your pet to keep them happy and healthy. Going for a walk or playing around the house benefits both you and your pet.
Dealing with pet waste is one of those topics that every pet owner must deal with but no one likes to talk about. The fact is that the majority of community and neighborhood pet problems result from the inappropriate handling of pet waste. In addition, pet waste is the greatest source of potential health risk for your pet and your family. Scoop litter boxes daily and clean them regularly. If your pet spends time outside your house, clean up waste from the yard.
For your pet’s wellbeing make sure you always follow the Pet Policy outlined in the Resident Responsibility Guide. For more information on pet ownership visit the American Veterinary Medical Association’s website.
Corvias offers convenient, curbside trash pick-up every week. In addition to curbside collection of household refuse, residents can also place bulk trash items at the curb on the scheduled pick-up day. Please do not place your trash bin curbside until 5 p.m. the day before your pickup. Containers must be promptly returned to storage locations the same day. Check your community calendar for your household and bulk trash pickups day.
Additionally, when resident moves out of their home, we ask that you do not leave excess trash or rubbish. Bulk trash may not be left curbside at any time except scheduled pickup days. Please notify the neighborhood office to arrange a pick-up time for bulk trash items. For more information about disposing of bulk trash items, please contact your Corvias Community Office.
Corvias encourages residents to bag the trash inside the container. Corvias also asks if you see trash lying around your neighborhood to be a good steward and pick it up. We appreciate your attention in keeping your community beautiful.
Changing your air filter each month can help remove most airborne particles in your home that make allergies worse, help reduce energy costs and can improve the overall efficiency of your HVAC unit. New filters are available at the neighborhood office. If you have medical needs and require an alternate air filter, you can request an exception to policy from your neighborhood team as well.
On July 4, Americans celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The Declaration was officially adopted by the Continental Congress in Philadelphia on July 4, 1776, although Congress formally declared independence from Great Britain on July 2, and the Declaration wasn’t signed by all 56 members until August.
Some other facts about the founding document of the United States that you may not know:
There’s a message on the back. No, it’s not an invisible treasure map (as in the Nicholas Cage movie National Treasure). The words “Original Declaration of Independence, dated 4th July 1776” appear on the reverse side of the document on display in the National Rotunda, at the bottom and upside down.
About 200 copies of the Declaration were immediately produced by printer John Dunlap for distribution through the 13 colonies. Of these original “Dunlap broadsides,” 26 still exist.
The original document wasn’t printed on paper, but “engrossed” on parchment. Engrossing is a process for preparing an official document in large, clear handwriting.
At the bottom left corner of the Declaration is an unidentified handprint. Historians speculate that it’s the result of the document’s being rolled up for transport and handled by various people for extensive exhibition in the early years of its existence.
The two youngest signers of the Declaration were Thomas Lynch Jr. and Edward Rutledge, both of South Carolina, both 26 years old at the time. The oldest signer was Benjamin Franklin, 70. Nine of the original signers died before the American Revolution ended in 1783.
How can you beat the heat this summer? Avoid using heat generating appliances during the hottest part of the day! Things such as your clothes dryer, oven and dish washer can all generate a lot of heat, which can make it harder to cool your unit.
Your community calendar can help you stay up-to-date on trash, recycling, lawn care, resident events and community activities.
You can even sync your community calendar with a personal Google calendar by clicking on the +Google button on the bottom right-hand corner of the calendar.
