Welcome to National Pet Month

#NationalPetMonth: April 1- May 2 2022

National Pet Month (NPM) celebrates and raises awareness of responsible pet ownership through our educational campaigns and resources across our various platforms. NPM celebrates pet ownership, sharing the many benefits of our cherished companions across the UK.

Whilst the #NationalPetMonth campaign runs from April to May each year via various media outlets, the important messages that NPM endorses run all year-round. We continue to develop informative and important content for both experienced and new pet owners alike.  

During the campaign month of April to May, we love to hear about fundraisers and events in support of the UK’s many phenomenal pet welfare organisations and charities. This can be individual or larger events, virtual or in-person! Tag us on our social channels below.
