According to petdayusa.com, today (April 11) is National Pet Day 2019.
The site says that Nation Pet Day was founded in 2006 by Colleen Paige (Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert and Animal Welfare Advocate) to celebrate the joys pets bring to our lives and to create awareness about the many kinds of animals waiting to be adopted at shelters and rescues all around the globe. Colleen Paige says, "MILLIONS of unwanted animals perish everyday due to to just 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.”
I salute my English bulldog Jax today! Let's see your pets. Use the #NationalPetDay to post on social media.
