National Pet Month- May Contest

I have a contest going on through my Facebook page that I wanted to share on my blog….

I want your photos of your four legged furry children with your children to show how wonderful a family pet can be.

Please Like my page Momee Friends of Long Island on Facebook so you can see the extra contests and local information as well.

In honor of National Pet Month if you were considering adopting a pet please do so by checking out a local Long Island site:

Save- A -Pet where they give tips on adoption and how to care for a pet as well as, local animals that need homes.

I think Pets are great family members in homes… so I am doing a contest where all of you can show off your furry four legged child with your children.

Please submit your photos to my email : momeefriendsli@gmail.com

Did you know that the month of May is National Pet Month in the United States;so if you were thinking of adopting a pet or buying one for your child do so in celebration this month.
