National Love Your Pet Day is celebrated on February 20 of every year. National Love Your Pets Day is a day to show your love and extra attention to your pets. It is also a day to concentrate on the special love that you have with your pets. Pets are the companion animal which kept primarily for our company, entertainment and protection. Pets provide their owner’s both physical and emotional benefits.  Hence, National Love Your Pet Day is a day to pay extra attention and love to your companion animals.

If I could be half the person my dog is, I’d be twice the human I am.” — Charles Yu

History of National Love Your Pet Day

The exact origin and the founder of National Love Your Pet Day is still unknown. Regular walking with the dog can supply both the human and doh with exercise, social interaction and air. Pets can give perfect companionship to peoples who do not have regular social interaction with other people and to the people who are living alone. The most grown and popular pets are dogs and cats. But in some places, other animals like pigs, ferrets, rabbits, red foxes and birds like canaries, parrots, fowl and fishes are also grown as Pets. Some of the scholars, animal organisations, ethicists have raised concern over pet-keeping with regards to the autonomy and objectification of nonhuman animals. Whatever may be the pet companion, we are sure that you will enjoy by spending some time with them on the National Love Your Pet Day. On February 20, show your appreciation to the pets by dressing them with the different dresses.
