November 6-12, 2016 is National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week. The Humane Society of the United States founded National Animal Shelter and Rescue Appreciation Week to encourage pet lovers to become better acquainted with their local shelters or rescue groups and to learn how they can help in the lifesaving work.
In celebration of National Animal Shelter and Rescue Appreciation Week, for the third year 1-800- PetMeds® is hosting a contest for animal rescues and shelters. One shelter or rescue organization will receive a $1,000 grant to aid in their lifesaving efforts!
Help Your Rescue or Shelter Group win the $1,000 grant!
