About Love Your Pet Day

When is Love Your Pet Day? This holiday is always celebrated on February 20

Love Your Pet Day, a February 20 holiday, is a day to spend time with your pet, and to pamper it. People just love their pets, and today is an easy excuse to spend time with them and give them special treatment. Give them lots of love and attention today. Your pet loves attention and will have a good time with you, regardless of how you choose to enjoy this day with him.

A pet is any animal that gives you comfort and or enjoyment. When we think of the ideal pet, we usually think about a fog or a cat. However, almost any animal can be a good pet. Some others include birds, pigs, rabbits, fish, turtles, snakes, and more. Then, if you want a pet that is low maintenance and easy to lease, try a pet rock or a chia pet.

Interestingly, Ecard companies have a wide choice of cards for today. There are many cards to send to pet owners to make them smile and feel good. However, we did not find a single Ecard to be sent to the pet. ……..hmmm.

How to Celebrate Love Your Pet Day

  • If you don’t have a pet, maybe today is the day to adopt a pet. Take a trip to your local Humane Society and bring home an animal that needs you. It will make you both feel good.
  • Spend time with it.
  • Take your pet to the groomer.
  • Teach him a new trick.
  • Give him special treats.
  • Take it for a walk.
  • If your pet is a dog, take him to the dog park.
  • Buy an article of clothes for him, if appropriate.
  • Take a selfie with it.

History and Origin of Love Your Pet Day

Our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day. Most likely, it was a pet lover or an animal rights group.

We’ve researched this holiday twice. During the original study, all references to this holiday referred to it as Love Your Pet Day. Beginning in the middle 2010s, some internet websites started to call this National Love Your Pet Day. There is no evidence to suggest that this is truly a “National” day, which requires an act of congress. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation about this special day.

Definition of “National” Days – and why it is important to distinguish true National days.
