RISMEDIA, May 3, 2007-As Mahatma Gandhi once said, "A nation can be judged by how it treats its animals." In honor of this year's "Be Kind to Animals Week," The Pet Realty NetworkTM supports Pet Shelters and Humane Societies across the country with the new campaign, THE LUCKY DAY – that special day when an orphaned pet finally finds their new home.
The American Humane Association created Be Kind to Animals Week in 1915 to celebrate the unique bond between humans and animals. Every year, animal shelters throughout the country hold special events during this special week to raise awareness about Being Kind to Animals, and to teach people about the amazing role animals play in our lives. Be Kind to Animals Week is a great time to promote the nation's animal welfare organizations and to encourage everyone to get involved to make a difference for animals.
"Be Kind to Animals Week represents a worthwhile tradition of celebrating and respecting animals," says Amanda Jacobs of The Pet Realty NetworkTM. "This week is a time to reflect on the happiness these companions give us."
According the National Council of Pet Population, moving is the #1 cited reason dogs are relinquished to shelters, and the #3 reason cats are surrendered.
www.PetRealtyNetwork.com, launched in January 2007, serves both Pet Owners and Real Estate Professionals of the community in one convenient place and includes a helpful list of Pet Friendly Real Estate Agents, Properties, and will soon include Pet Friendly Rentals. By connecting Pet Friendly People with a Network of Pet Friendly Real Estate Professionals, The Pet Realty NetworkTM and THE LUCKY DAY campaign can help reduce the number of pets surrendered to pet shelters due to residential pet restrictions or relocation issues, educate and inform pet owners about how using a Pet Friendly Real Estate Professional can lead to healthier and happier pets, and promote the importance of adoptions from Pet Shelters and Humane Societies.
The Pet Realty NetworkTM thanks the Real Estate Professionals, Pet Shelters, and Pet Owners making a difference in the lives of pets everywhere, and recognizes the Humane Societies of THE LUCKY DAY campaign that embodies kindness through action and joins us in celebrating this year's Be Kind to Animals Week.
