AAA Tidewater Virginia Celebrates National Pet Day


VIRGINIA BEACH, VA, (April 11, 2016) – Today is National Pet Day, celebrating the furry, feathery, or scaly companions in our lives. This day is designated to bring public awareness to the benefits of pet ownership, support pet adoption, and celebrate the value and contribution that pets provide. AAA Tidewater Virginia will extend the celebration to Saturday, April 16th, for all pet lovers by hosting a Pet Day at AAA. 

The Pet Day at AAA event is free and open to the public at the AAA Suffolk Center located at 3529 Bridge Rd. from 9am to 12pm. There will be experts on-site to answer your questions about AAA Pet Insurance, AAA Prescription Savings for your pet, and a local AAA Discounts & Rewards® partner - Home Away From Home Pet Boarding. Learn about great road trips for you and your pet, including tips on finding pet-friendly activities, hotels, and more.  Come see some of the best new vehicles for dog lovers, courtesy of First Team Automotive, and tips on how to secure your pet while driving to prevent injury to your pet and you. Everyone who brings their pet to the event will receive a free photo courtesy of AAA taken by Upper 90°Photography. Please keep all pets on leashes.

  “Our pets are so important to us. They are our companions during the great times and the tough times. Traveling with your pet can be dangerous if you aren’t aware of best practices when driving. AAA wants to help you protect your pet and enjoy the travel experience.” said Georjeane Blumling, AAA Tidewater’s spokesperson.

Millions of Americans recognize that dogs are wonderful companions and often bring their favorite furry friend along on road trips, day trips and day-to-day errands. However, in a vehicle, this can mean added distractions for the driver and added dangers for all passengers, including pets.

Join AAA at the Suffolk Center at 3529 Bridge Rd in Suffolk from 9am to 12pm for an event to learn all about traveling with your four-legged family members.
