Dogs get new birthday cards with happy birthday
Posted On June 20, 2021
The dogs of the Wall Street financial world celebrated their golden years last week with birthday cards, but a growing number of people are asking why.
Some people are worried that their pets are getting old, or that their pet is going to die soon.
Others are wondering if they’re getting a gift they can’t afford or can’t keep.
The American Kennel Club, for example, is asking pet owners to send a birthday card with their pets to their friends, family and loved ones.

The American Veterinary Medical Association, which is a trade association representing veterinarians, is urging pet owners not to send birthday cards for their pets.
“We strongly encourage pet owners and their caregivers to use the pet birthday card as a wonderful reminder of their pets’ love and affection,” the organization said in a statement.
Many other pet organizations have also taken a similar stance, including the Humane Society of the United States, American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and the American Pet Products Association.
