Pet Honored Holidays For March 2020

Mar 9, 2020 | Pet Health, Pets

Yesterday, Sunday, March 8th was International Women’s Day!  International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women – while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender equality.  The International Women’s Day date was moved to March 8 in 1913.  The day aimed to help nations worldwide eliminate discrimination against women. It also focused on helping women gain full and equal participation in global development.

International Women’s Day honors women but it means so much more.  This got me thinking about all the other days of the month that are being honored.  Of course, I had to look up all pet related honored days for March 2020 and here they are.

I believe in being strong when everything else seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles.” - Audrey Hepburn
