In appreciation for your pet, April 11th is recognized as National Pet Day. There are 80 million households that have pets in the United States, out of those pets, it is estimated that 80 million are dogs and 86 million are cats.

On National Pet day, there are many fun things you can do to observe it. Donate pet care items to your local Humane Society. Buy your pet a new toy, treat, or get them professionally groomed. Check their sleeping area for ripped blankets, town beds, or wet rugs and consider purchasing new ones. Pets are special and need extensive care. Volunteering to walk or care for someone else’s dog would be a wonderful break for a senior citizen, or anyone who has a pet. Get a little exercise and take your pet for a walk or run. Share photos of your pet on national pet day by #nationalpetday on your social media platforms. National Pet day should be celebrated to let your pet know how much they are loved.
