AAA Pet Day was August 31, 2022
This year's AAA Pet Day was a big success! We welcomed Members and their furry-friends to join us at our Albany office for our Second Annual event for a chance to get their pet's photo taken by our friends at Mutt Shots Pet Portraits. Other on-site vendors included Shawna's Dogs, Air Paws Barkery, Benson's Pet Center and the AAA Travel Store. There were pet restraint and safety demonstrations and we collected cash and goods donations for Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA!
AAA Pets are members of the family too, which means they are eligible for AAA Pet ID Tags! The tags have your pet's name, your AAA member number and our phone number. If your pet is found, someone can call our 24-hour call center, we'll look up your member number, get your phone number then call you to help you get your pet back! Pet ID Tags are complimentary to members. They can be ordered online, over the phone or at the Travel Store and can be picked up at any of our four locations. Order your Pet ID Tag now.
