Greenwich, CT (PRWEB) October 05, 2011
Mark your calendars as the American Pet Products Association (APPA), through their non-profit campaign Pets Add Life (PAL), officially declares November 19, National Get A Pal For Your Pet Day. Recognizing the benefits of owning multiple pets, the day is set to encourage pet parents to consider adopting additional furry, winged and/or finned family members.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have a dedicated, national holiday to educate and encourage multiple pet ownership,” said APPA President Bob Vetere. “Pets Add Life is about promoting the many joys and benefits of responsible pet ownership, and we are finding more and more that multiple pet ownership is not only better for pets, but better for their families in general. Our pets need friends, and there are so many great pets out there needing a good home.”
Founded by APPA, the PAL campaign is designed to demonstrate the joys and benefits of responsible pet ownership and encourage an increase in animal adoption. In addition to bringing happiness into the home, it is proven that pets help reduce stress, lower blood pressure, prevent heart disease and fight depression.
