What is National Pet Day?

National Pet Day is a day of celebration. It’s a day to honor the joy and companionship pets bring to our lives. It was founded in 2006 by Colleen Paige, a pet & lifestyle expert and animal welfare advocate. Her goal is to raise awareness of the importance of animals, as well as to the plight of many animals waiting in shelters to be rescued.
