Reflect Your Pet: Celebrating National Pets Day

Julia Fechter

There are many different holidays to celebrate your human family. Now, you can show your furry, feathered or scaled family today some special love and affection, because it’s National Pets Day!

Maybe today is the day you give your animal companion a special snack, that coveted belly rub or a behind-the-ear scratch.

Maybe your furry companion likes to play with you and their favorite toy, or perhaps they enjoy going on walks. Whatever your pet enjoys, there are many ways you can give them special attention today.

On a more serious note, National Day Calendar suggests several different ways you can keep your home or apartment safe for your animal companion. Their website suggests that pet owners:

  • Go through any pet toys and discard unsafe items (like choking hazards)
  • Walk through their living space and store cords and cleaning materials away from where pets can pry.
  • Check that their pet is up to date on all of their vaccinations.
  • Check that their pet’s collar tags are current.

We want to see you and your pet! To share with us, post a picture of you and your pet or pets on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #reflectyourpet.
