1-800-PetMeds Cares™ 2016 National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week Contest

Hello and Happy Wednesday! Have you heard about National Animal Shelter and Rescue Appreciation Week? Let me tell you a little about it. About: National Animal Shelter and Rescue Appreciation Week was founded by the Humane Society of the United States to encourage people to become better acquainted with their local shelters and to learn how they can assist in the lifesaving work. It takes place each year during the first full week of November (this year, Nov. 6-12).

Disclosure: I was not compensated to share information about 1-800-PetMeds Cares™ 2016 National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week Contest. A product donation was made through the 1-800-PetMeds Cares program to a shelter/rescue of my choice as a thank-you for promotion of this contest.
