May is National Pet Month, and what a great time to reflect on the importance of pets and pet ownership. National Pet Month, which began over twenty years ago, was started in England where it is celebrated in April each year. The five specific goals of National Pet Month include:
- Promote the benefits of pet ownership
- Support pet adoption
- Promote responsible pet ownership
- Increase public awareness of services available from professionals who work work with animlas
- Raise awareness of the role, value and contribution to society of service animals
Pets are extended members of the families they belong to, and they bring joy into the lives of others. So this month especially, give your pets the extra love and attention they deserve - they'll give you twice as much in return.
And don't forget about your pet's health. Make sure their vaccinations are up to date, and they are protected from fleas, ticks and other parasites. For additional peace of mind, consider a health insurance policy for your pet. Just click on the Get A Quote tab, then select Pet Insurance Quote.
