The second Sunday in June each year is set aside to serve as World Pet Memorial Day. It is an opportunity to honor a special pet in one's life who has crossed over the rainbow bridge. Pets can bring great adventures into people's lives and families. When they go on to rest, it can be a great absence. Gone but not forgotten certainly is the sentiment for this event.
All year long there are scores of events tailor made for finned, feathered or furry friends. Use these pet-related events for a springboard for all sorts of marketing and inclusive promotions. Just about any retailer can tie into a pet-related sponsorship or event, but pet stores, groomers, dog sitters/walkers, pet hotels, veterinarians, pet waste clean-up companies, and much more are ideal businesses for complementary advertising. Search the wealth of pet material in Metro's Editorial and Creative Libraries to add more bite to promotional efforts.
