It's National Pet Month

It's National Pet Month

May is National Pet Month; and this is the purrfect opportunity to tell pets just how much you appreciate them. 

There are many ways to get involved this month including: donating to a pet charity; volunteering at an animal shelter and adopting a dog or cat from the humane society.

Pet owners can teach dogs new tricks in the fenced-in backyard where they can run, play, and grow. Teaching animals new tricks not only helps improve cognitive functionality but also strengthens their bones - increasingly important as the pet ages. 

Dog lovers and cat enthusiasts can start foster care programs and TNR Programs to help reduce the homeless animal population. Both programs are humane and can be done from the comfort of your home. 

Whatever you choose to do this month to show animals you care, do it with love and commitment.
