National Pet Month

National Pet Month is a celebration of the benefits that pets bring to people’s lives – and vice versa. It is observed annually in the United States in May and during the month of April in the United Kingdom.

National Pet Month’s aims are to:

  • Promote the benefits of pet ownership
  • Support pet adoption
  • 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 animals

Here in Amelia you can celebrate National Pet Month by donating pet food, treats and toys to the Amelia County Animal Shelter through a donation box hosted by Food Lion at their Amelia store. Did you that about 80 million homes in America have an animal family member? And about half of those households have more than one? What a great way to celebrate how important our pets are!
