Welcome to We Love Animals

We're a nation of animal lovers, but how much do you know about your pet?

Dog and Cat Sitting on Front Step

AOL is focusing on animals throughout the month of August.

Our features focus on the care of dogs and cats to ensure a happy home life for pets and owners; tips on exotic animal health and nutrition; training advice; wildlife stories from home and abroad and animals in the news.

We also have information on the different ways you can support animal charities and help wildlife thrive in your local area.

All the articles will appear here as the month unfolds.
