Stacy Cary is a successful business leader and entrepreneur who has a wealth of experience in several fields. Throughout her career, Stacy Stine Cary has continued to serve the family business, Patland Oil Company. In her free time, she supports several animal protection groups, including Operation Kindness.
Operation Kindness was founded in 1976 and is now the largest and longest running no-kill animal shelter in north Texas. In addition to providing adoption services for animals in the area, Operation Kindness also provides pet owners with tips that can improve animal safety in the home. Many pet owners, for example, are aware of the threats that salt and chocolate pose to a dog, but many are ignorant to the fact that grapes and garlic can be equally hazardous. There are also a number of common plants found around the house that all pets should be kept away from, such as lilies and chrysanthemums. Operation Kindness also provides seasonal tips. Holiday parties, for example, can create excess stress in an animal’s life. Most animals are happier in a secluded area of the home during parties. Dogs should also receive extra attention and protection during Halloween, when unattended pets can be vulnerable.
