#PetsAddLife Pet Poetry Contest For Kids

If you love cats, sharing makes us purrrr :-)

PALS kids poetry contest

Calling all kids who love pets. Think you can express your love for pet in 100 words or less? Of course you can! Like to win prizes? Sure you do! Kids learn the joys of responsible pet ownership and compassion for all animals by example. My love and respect for animals began at an early age. It was naturally instilled by my parents and observing the world around me. Not all kids were as lucky as me, but as adults we can make a difference in childrens’ lives even if we aren’t parents ourselves. My earliest memory of being wowed by an animal was at age two. It was a pet fox at an Indian reservation in Canada. Feeling the soft fur felt better than any teddy bear. It was breathing, alive with something I couldn’t describe then as spirit or soul, but I fell in love and in deep awe for all animals in that moment.
