National Pet Day

Today is National Pet Day! It is that day of the year where everybody enjoys posting photos of their favorite pets on social media in appreciation for their furry, feathered or scaly comrades. As today is about appreciating pets in general, it is also important to recognize those pets that aren’t necessarily yours. National Pet Day is about bringing awareness to those animals and that don’t have families as well the people who take care of them at shelters and organizations. One way you can do this is by promoting your local animal shelter in order to help the dogs and cats there find homes. Another way could be by donating to local animal charities, or even by spreading awareness of the importance of adopting your next fur-baby instead of going to a breeder. These are only a few examples of how you can make a true impact on National Pet Day this year. Not only can you appreciate your own pet, but appreciate those who help and care for those pets without homes and families!
