Celebrated April 11th to highlight the unconditional love pets bring to our lives and to encourage adoption. It is a day to remind pet parents to make sure your pet’s vaccinations are up to date and give them some extra love, of course.

National Pet Day was founded in 2006 by Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert, Animal Welfare Advocate Colleen Paige, to celebrate the joy pets bring to our lives and to create public awareness about the plight of many different kinds of animals awaiting a forever home in shelters and rescues all around the globe.

Starting with dogs thousands of years ago, people worldwide have kept a growing number of domesticated animals for pleasure and companionship.
