“If there is a heaven, it’s certain our animals are to be there. Their lives become so interwoven with our own, it would take more than an archangel to disentangle them.” — Pam Brown

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. For more information about Colleen, please click here.

{A quote from our founder, Colleen Paige}

“I believe all animals are sentient beings that deserve our love and compassion…even not-so-cuddly animals like reptiles and rats. No animal should ever have to suffer, especially at the hand of humans. MILLIONS of unwanted animals perish every day, due to just that….being “unwanted”. I’d like to ask animal lovers everywhere to pledge to give $5 a month to their favorite animal shelter or rescue to help support animals in need. Even if all you did was donate $1 a month, if a million people cared enough to do that, that’s 12 MILLION dollars raised for shelters across the nation and most of you wouldn’t even miss that dollar. Think of how much that would change the world for unwanted pets…especially if it were to become a global trend.”


Ways to Celebrate National Pet Day!

1. Adopt a pet from your local shelter or pure breed rescue organization.

2. Volunteer at your local shelter and offer to care for the animals.

3. Donate blankets, food and toys to a favorite animal welfare organization.

4. Organize a peaceful demonstration in front of your community pet store that sells pets from puppy or kitten mills.

5. Have a National Pet Day party and celebrate all your pets!

6. Spend the day taking photos of your pets and then post them on our Facebook page!

7. Assist an ill, elderly or a financially struggling neighbor or friend by purchasing pet food, hay or needed items for their pets.

8. Purchase a National Pet Day Tee Shirt (or other gift item) here, to express your devotion to all animals.

9. Buy your pet a fun new toy….or two…or five.

10. Hire a professional pet photographer for a fun photo shoot.


“Many people think that humans are superior to animals, but how is that possible when humans can’t even properly love each other? We’re not able to come close to being superior to the pure & perfect unconditional souls that animals are.
If we could…we’d have no need for this day”.
