Pet and Animal Holidays celebrated around the World

Pet and Animal Holidays celebrated around the World for 2020-2021 year
Most Animal Holidays are dedicated to the preservation and protection of wild animals and their habitats throughout the world. Supported and launched by wildlife organizations and animal lovers in countries across the globe, most such Holidays were founded as an effort to raise awareness of animal welfare, and encourage the support of wild animal habitat conservation programs and animal rescue organizations and sanctuaries. Every year many Animal Holidays have a new conservation theme with corresponding artwork, educational materials, and activities. Pet Holidays are often intended as fun holidays to appreciate our fluffy friends, and thank them for their endless and unconditional love. Pet Holidays founders also intend these Holidays to improve the welfare of pets by trying to stop cruelty towards them, and educating pet owners about the special issues involved with taking care of the animals.

How to celebrate Animal and Pet Holidays

Never abuse an animal yourself, and try to get actively involved in protecting them in any possible way you can think of. Doing nothing does nothing to help animals in need. And…don’t forget to be nice to your pet, and indulge it with something delicious regardless of whether it is his(her) holiday today or not.
