World Pet's Day
World Pet's Day is held on October 4. This event in the first decade of the month October is annual. Help us
The day was established to highlight the importance of pets in a person's life and to celebrate the joy that pets bring to our lives.
Cats spend approximately 50% of their waking hours grooming themselves. 75% of pet owners celebrate their dog's birthday. Cats, dogs, birds, fish and hamsters … we love them all! To celebrate World Pet's Day—show your pets some love.
