From 7 April – 7 May, National Pet Month will be encouraging people to team up with their pets to get happy and healthy.
During the month, thousands of people will be celebrating happy times with their pets at hundreds of events up and down the country. While many of these events will raise funds for local animal charities, National Pet Month is not just about fund raising. It is also all about raising awareness of how pets make people’s lives happier and healthier, and how we can repay the pets we love by looking after them responsibly.
Details of how to join in and become a supporter are on our website www.nationalpetmonth.org.uk. You can set up an event yourself, or enter one of the National Pet Month competitions, or just check out the website to see what’s happening in your area.
Phil Sketchley, chairman of NPM said:
“Keep in touch with what’s on in your area by looking on our website. We are also planning some great competitions too.”
“National Pet Month is an opportunity for us all to learn more about responsible pet care so we can enjoy our pets and make a winning team for many years to come. By following our 10 top tips, our animals will enjoy healthier and longer lives,” he said.
