Showing you how a child’s love for a pet
will have them all set!
National Kids and Pets Day
26 April annually
There are lots of great reasons for a child to have a pet companion – the biggest reason being that a child who is shown how to be compassionate towards pets as a child is very likely to carry that compassion on into adulthood, in both their behavior towards animals and people.
It is also claimed that children with learning disabilities can improve their skills by reading to an animal – and that pets can help shyer children grow more confident.
The main point of this day is to encourage you to adopt a pet. There are millions of extremely cute and loving animals out there, just waiting to be part of your family unit! As long as you and your family are ready, you could be safe in the knowledge that you are giving an animal in need a great home.
