I rec\'d this plant over 8 years ago at my mom\'s funeral. It has been happy living w/ my Dad, but he wants to get rid of it, so we cut it down, and I have no idea what it is called and how to care, if it is dangerous to pets. Please help me identify - give care advice - and verify if it is poisonious or dangerous. thank you

Here is more information on it care, though if you have a curious canine, you may want to keep it away from it or get rid of the plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/chinese-evergreen/chinese-evergreen-plants.htm
