March 1st full week - Professional Pet Sitters Week
Pet Sitters International, the world’s largest educational association for professional pet sitters, will celebrate Professional Pet Sitters Week during the first full week in March.
For nearly one million discriminating pet owners in the United States, Canada and abroad, there is no substitute for professional in-home pet care. Professional pet sitters offer a unique and beneficial alternative to using boarding facilities or having to rely on family and friends for quality pet care. Because many professional pet sitters receive specialized training in areas such as animal behavior, emergency preparedness, pet first aid, and other important skill sets, pet owners can leave their homes for business or pleasure with the knowledge that their beloved pets are in safe, capable and caring hands.
Recognize the pet sitters who make in-home pet care possible this week.
March 2nd week - National Wildlife Week
Get outdoors, enjoy the sights and smells of spring.
National Wildlife Week has been a program of the National Wildlife Federation since 1938 when it was called National Wildlife Restoration Week. NWF is the nation's largest member-supported conservation advocacy and education group, the National Wildlife Federation unites people from all walks of life to protect nature, wildlife, and the world we all share.
Observe Wildlife: The National Wildlife Watch involves everyone from children, parents and caregivers, grandparents and mentors to schools, outdoor and sporting groups and others. Participants will download a list of wildlife and natural phenomena to observe in their backyards, neighborhoods, communities and other special places. They will then report back by posting their findings on the NWF website. Participants will be challenged to watch for designated endangered species in their locale.
