The DogSmith National Dog Training and Pet Care Franchise encourages all animal lovers to support Animal World USA and Animal World International  by participating in their “Week for the Animals” beginning Saturday, February 6, 2010 and concluding on Sunday February 14th 2010.

Florida February 2, 2010 - DogSmith Dog Training and Pet Care Franchises join with animal lovers everywhere in supporting “Week for the Animals” across the USA and the World.  This annual event presented by Animal World USA and Animal World International kicks off around the world on Saturday February 6, 2010 and concludes on Valentines Day, February 14th.

Animal World was formed to inspire, educate and empower communities everywhere to understand, love, nurture and protect the amazing animals of our world.  Toward this end Animal World partners with educational institutions, animal shelters, rescue groups, and humane organizations to host a variety of animal-themed special events.  Educators, students, businesses and animal lovers join in, creating and planning activities to celebrate and help animals.

Typical “Week for the Animals” events will include adoption fairs; spay/neuter awareness events, shelter beautification days, Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) programs in libraries, walks for the farm animals and therapy dogs visiting hospitals and nursing homes.

Many communities will also stage a salute to our canine military and police dogs, feral cat initiatives, animal law events, educational programs at zoos, blessings for the animals, and fun-filled festival days for families to come and enjoy food, music and some comically entertaining animals!

Please get involved! Events are planned in many communities, and all animal lovers are welcome.  Visit for more information and to find out what is planned for your state or community.  You can also make a donation to help the animals.
