Pet Awareness Day: Events, Rescue Groups & Discussions


People began to congregate around Rosie, the goat who was dancing. It appeared as though this young lady would not say no to a sweet for very long. At the Beardsley Zoo, as soon as she stepped off the trailer, all she wanted to do was run around, play, and eat anything that was in her line of sight. She was particularly ecstatic to perform a dance in a circle for all of us in order to earn a reward.

The success of Pet Awareness Day was quite remarkable. On the warm and sunny day in April, people of all ages came out to participate in activities and workshops focused on teaching them how to properly care for their pets. There were numerous rescue organizations that provided information, gifts, and even animals up for adoption.

The family unit extends to include the pets. They have needs that must be met with love, respect, and the highest quality of care. Every year, billions of domesticated animals, including pets, are abandoned, frequently for no reason of their own. Because of this, between 6 and 8 million are put to death by euthanasia each year. Adoption counseling is a service that rescue organizations and humane societies offer in order to assist people in finding the animal companion that is the best fit for them. Discussions were held at the Beardsley Zoo on responsible pet ownership, the reasons why exotic animals do not make good pets, and how to help the dog and cat population by supporting rescue groups and spaying and neutering pets. These are just some of the messages that the Beardsley Zoo thought it was important to convey. Other topics included why exotic animals do not make good pets.

The Pet First Aid program offered by the American Red Cross was presented in a demonstration. Both the Bridgeport Cat Project and the New Leash on Life Pet Rescue in Stratford had unique gifts for both people and their pets, as well as information and adoptable animals, at their recent fund-raising events. There were also representatives from Friends of the Bridgeport Animal Shelter and the North Shore Animal League from Long Island. Adopt a Greyhound was also present.

A horse, a miniature horse, and a goat were brought by the Locket’s Meadow Farm Equine Rehabilitation Center of Bethany. These animals were controlled by the center’s younger volunteers, and many guests were amused by the tricks they performed with the animals. Vanna White, the miniature horse, and Rosie the goat were both taught how to dance and jump through hoops.

Everyone came out because there were many different pets, there was information, and there was sunshine. Many people went home having gained an understanding of the significance of animal rescue, while others took away sweets and toys, and some even went home with new pets.
