National Pet Month has started!
April is National Pet Month in the UK, with the aim to encourage pet owners to celebrate life with their pets, spread the word on responsible ownership and raise money for pet charities. The theme for this year is: “Pets & The Elderly: Enjoying Later Years Together” and events taking place will run along this theme.
You can run a fund raising event or get involved in an event already organised, the website gives information on how to do this and there will be regular updates via social media. Check out the ‘What’s On’ Map, which shows events being held in your area. To encourage children to get involved with pets and learn more about looking after pets, there are downloadable lesson plans and games to play in schools.
Some events already planned are the Great British Dog walks around the UK, a spring dog photo competition, an animal festival day in Dorset and subsidised microchipping. So lots to get involved in and help raise money and awareness.
My favourite item is “Top 10 Tips for Responsible Pet Ownership“, this is downloadable or printable with great guidelines for all pet owners and a good aide for any potential pet owners to help you with your new pet, you can find it here, it’s well worth a read.
So, however you, or your school, gets involved why not share your event, photos etc via the National Pet Month Facebook page, raising awareness can only be positive for you, your family and your pet!
For more information take a look at the website at www.nationalpetmonth.org.uk and let us know if you get involved!
