National Pet Month

Did you know that this month is National Pet Month?

National Pet Month is a registered charity, unique in bringing together animal welfare charities, professional bodies, pet businesses, schools, youth groups and pet lovers, with the common goal of improving the welfare of pets.

National Pet Month’s aims are to:

  • promote responsible pet ownership
  • make people aware of the benefits of pets for people and people for pets
  • increase public awareness of services available from professionals who work with animals
  • raise awareness of the role, value and contribution to society of working companion animals

Toby, of course, thinks every month is Pet Month.....

  10. Hi, Didn't know about pet month though I reckon my 'boy' Leo does. He's our Ragdoll tom and has a real need for staff to open/shut doors and generally wait upon him! Loved the pic of your leaping panther cat! Looking forward to seeing you at V&H next week.
