June is that special time of month for weddings and graduations. It is the month we get to enjoy the benefits of spring and the coolness before the hot summer temperatures arrives. It is also the month to celebrate cats and our pets. Listed below is something for each week in June to appreciate our dogs and cats.

This month, timed for the first month of hurricane season, urges people with pets to make preparations in case they should be hit by a disaster…and that includes making plans for what you would do with your dog in case of a hurricane, tornado, flood or other natural disaster.
