Have you ever heard of Wishbones for Pet’s Month? It’s actually pretty awesome, and it lasts more than a month. From October 15 to November 30, professional pet sitters raise money for their local favorite pet related charity.
It’s Still Fairly New, And Been Growing By Leaps & Bounds

If you’ve never heard of Wishbones for Pets Month — you are not alone! The cool thing is pet sitters across the United States and Canada have been participating in this event since 2004. It all started when a single pet sitter wanted to make a difference for local animals and it grew into an international event. It continues to grow every year as more pet owners and sitters find out about it.
The Dates are Easy to Remember — When You’re Thinking about Turkey, Think about Wishbones for Pets
The dates were chosen to coincide with the six weeks leading up to Thanksgiving. One of the reasons for holding the events this time of year is since it’s holiday season, people usually have giving on the brain.
All the pet sitters who participate raise funds in many different ways for hundreds of pet related programs. And many focus their efforts towards providing food and toys for pet shelters. Some pet sitters will even have a box in which you can put donations, similar to Toys for Tots and other charitable efforts aimed at providing holiday cheer for kids and families in need.
It’s Easy to Pitch in and do your Part for our Furry Friends
We’d love to see you as a pet owner or just as an animal lover, to get involved in any way you can. Start by checking with your pet sitters, groomers, kennels and other pet-service providers whose services you use. See if they’re collecting for Wishbones for Pets and find out what you can do to help.
If your pet-service providers aren’t involved yet, encourage them to get involved. Chances are, they simply don’t know about it yet (it’s still new and not advertised as widely).
Refer them to the Wishbones for Pets website here.
If there’s nothing going on in your area, think about starting something, contact the organization yourself to see what you can do. Chances are, there are plenty of pet-related charities in your area — all waiting for you to donate money, food, time or other resources.
Let’s start the holiday season a little early by giving back to our furry friends!
