The American Veterinary Medical Association website contains a wealth of information on a variety of animal topics: https://www.avma.org/

 

The site even provides a calendar listing animal observances and related topics month by month. For September, the topics seem timely in the wake of devastating flooding across the United States, including a highlight on National Disaster Preparedness Month.
