There are a number of Pet related Holidays to celebrate in the  month of May. It is National Pet Month!

Chip Your Pet Month. A microchip can mean the difference in you getting your pet back if lost and not being able to find your pet no matter what you do to find them. For more information of micro chipping go to  Web MD microchip question and answer.

National Pet Week is always held the first full week of May by the American Veterinary Medical Association.

May 5-11 American Humane’s Society Be Kind to Animals Week.  This week long event has been celebrated since 1915.  It is always the first full week of May.

While this is celebrated only once a year, there are ways you can be kind to animals every day.  Here’s how:

Speak out for animals.  Register to receive Action Alerts from American Humane Association – you’ll be able to speak out for animals with just the click of a mouse.  Advocacy for animals can make a huge difference in their safety and well being.

 Report Animal abuse.  Animal cruelty and abuse is not only tragic for animals, but also can be an indicator that other forms of abuse such as domestic violence could be happening.  If you see something suspicious – a dog chained in your neighbor’s yard that looks underfed, a child putting a cat in a box and kicking it around the yard, don’t hesitate.  Let someone know – report it to the authorities.

 Appreciate wildlife.  If wildlife comes close to your home – look for ways to coexist or to protect you property humanely.

Adopt a pet from a shelter or rescue.  Every year approximately 3.7 million animals must be euthanized at our nations shelters because they could not be adopted.  Help animals find a second chance by getting your next pet from a shelter or rescue.

 The second Saturday in May is Animal Disaster Preparedness Day.  Go HSUS Making disaster Plans for your pets for additional information.  Disaster plans aren’t only essential for the Safety of Pets.  If you are responsible for other kinds of animals,  such as outdoor or feral cats, horses and animals on farms plans are essential to save lives

 I’m sure some of you are thinking about and planning summer vacations.  Don’t forget to make your reservations for pet sitting as soon as our plans are confirmed.  We are looking forward to being of service to you and your pets,

                                              Hope you have a great May!
