Pet holidays are exceptional days to commemorate our furry friends. But, do you think these days are only to celebrate?
Holidays for pets draw our care towards them and promote adoption. In 2004, the National Dog Day was first organized for 26th August. Later, it headed over to the National Mutt Day, National Cat Day, etc.
Today, almost a quarter in a year () is there for you to glorify, rescue and even adopt a pet. Pets have the most concise 3 holidays in a month!
Of course, many of the pet owners haven’t even aware of a few days. And, you might have unfortunately missed a few days that you wished to remember.
The bitter truth is the difficulty to track down all the pet holidays. But, an easy way to note down them is to have a list of them and keep a pet calendar!
So, we have compiled a list of all pet holidays including pet awareness days to save your time and effort!
Take note of these days month-wise and keep your bond stronger with the pet!
