Pet Valu’s Pet Appreciation Weekend April 26 & 27
What a scene it’s going to be: People with their pooches, playing games and making new friends, and animal lovers sharing stories and advice. On Saturday and Sunday, April 26 and 27, Pet Valu presents Pet Appreciation Weekend (PAW), a celebration of our domestic critters and those who love them. There will be games, refreshments, giveaways and pet adoptions at all Pet Valu stores. While the events are focused around the weekend, Pet Valu and their generous customers will be raising money, donating food and supplies to local animal charities all month long.
PAW is a lighthearted, family-fun event with a serious message. Each year there are 5 to 7 million cats and dogs entering US shelters, and there are many others out in the streets. While we Americans spend about $45 billion annually on everything from pet food to grooming, pet homelessness remains a major problem; the ASPCA estimates the number of feral cats alone in the tens of millions. Pet Valu sees Pet Appreciation Weekend as a chance to build awareness and raise much-needed funds for local animal agencies and services. This is your chance to join Pet Valu in helping animals in need. There’ll be purrs and barks heard around the country!
