Celebrate National Pet Month in May

May is my favorite spring month. The weather is just right for our pooches to enjoy more time with us outdoors exploring all the new “sniffs” of spring. And from a safe perch indoors, our felines can excitedly watch birds and butterflies flutter about, putting the “King of the Jungle” pounce back in their kitty steps.

But that’s not the only reason I love May! It’s also National Pet Month! Started by the American Humane Association many years ago, it’s an observance dedicated to celebrating the undeniable benefits our companion animals bring to our lives. I think a lot of us take these benefits for granted most of the time, so let’s change that this month and dedicate 31 days to appreciating the true meaning behind everything Fido and Fluffy do for us (and vice-versa!).

In honor of the celebration, I shared with my pet loving friends at BISSELL, the top 5 goals for National Pet Month, along with suggested ways to celebrate May with your furry BFF!

Also you can visit DogTipper.com to discover unique pet observances and events during the month of May.

How will YOU and your pet celebrate National Pet Month? Chilly and I would love to hear from you.
