National April Pet and Animal Days

These days it seems that each month has so many things being observed, commemorated, celebrated, etc. Here are the ones for April related to animals that I found on several different pet-related websites:

National Pet First Aid Awareness Month
Prevention of Animal Cruelty Month
Prevent Lyme Disease in Dogs Month

April 7 - Tag day
April 11 - National Pet Day
April 15-21 - National Pet ID week
April 26 - National Kids & Pets Day
April 27 - National Hairball Awareness Day
April 28 - International Guide Dog Day
April 28 - World Veterinary Day

Your local shelters and rescue groups may be doing some special events and activities related to some of these special observances. So get involved when and if you can.

Of course, for all pet and animal lovers, every day is a day to celebrate the love and friendship our pets give us and to appreciate the wonder of animals in general. So we'll keep celebrating and caring for the animals we love every day no matter what else is going on!

Debra adopted her cat, Chester, from The Hermitage No Kill Cat Shelter in Tucson, Arizona, and encourages everyone to adopt homeless pets from a shelter in their area, too.

Love your post, Debra. Didn't know there were so many special days related to animals. But, as you say, every day with our furry family members is a special day.
