National Pet Month is a month dedicated to celebrating all of our animal companions! This month is a great time to show your pet how much you love them by showering them with extra quality time and treats. A 2020 survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA) showed about 85 million families own pets. However, there are many loveable pets that don’t have a home, here are some ways you can spoil those pets who are looking for their forever homes.
- Adopt: It is a great month to add a pet to your family! Head down to your local shelter or rescue to find your new companion.
- Donate: If you aren’t ready to adopt, donate what you can to a worthy shelter in your local community!
- Foster: If you want to test the waters to see if your lifestyle is conducive for a pet, fostering is a great option! Pets are a big commitment and fostering will allow you to help a needy pet and see if owning a pet is the right thing for you.
- Volunteer: Volunteering at your local shelter or rescue is a great way to help homeless pets find their forever home!
