National Pet Day, April 11, 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. But how do you celebrate a day like this?
- Celebrate a Good Cause
This would be a great day to dedicate some of your time to a local shelter in need of volunteers. Contact your local shelters to find out what their current needs may be, and help them out. Share what you did with others to bring awareness to pet adoption and the number of animals living in shelters in need of a home.
