National Pet Day

Dog with Owner

Date When Celebrated : This holiday event is always held on April 11

According to Colleen Paige, the creator of National Pet Day, this holiday event celebrates "the special relationship between humans and pets, and the joy pets bring to our lives". It also raises awareness, of the plight of all types of animal pets awaiting rescue and/or a permanent home. Maybe, that home will be yours!


Today is a day about the both of you. Undoubtedly, there is a special bond between humans and pets. We're talking about any and all pets. There is a mutually beneficial relationship, to both you and your pet. As you feed, care for, and love your pet, you will gain your pet's loyalty and a mutual affection. It's hard to be lonely, when a pet is at your side. A pet has a way of lifting your spirits. It often knows when you are sick, sad, or worried. Your pet may try to offer comfort or sympathy.


 Taking on a rescue animal is a great way to celebrate this day. Rescue animals are defined as any animal that is living in poor conditions, is abandoned or abused. There is a huge joy and emotional reward, in taking on an animal in one of these conditions. You bring security, safety and happiness to your new pet. He or she rewards you in many, many ways.

Celebrate today by spending time and playing with your pet. Give your pert a special treat or a

toy. If you don't have a pet, consider getting one from a shelter. If the opportunity arises, take on a rescue animal, if you can.
