The reason for this special day is to celebrate the joy that pets bring into people’s lives. This holiday first started in the United States, but slowly expanded internationally. In the United States, 67% of households have some type of pet whether it’s a dog, cat, fish, etc. When speaking with Laykin Pierce about the pets she has she replied with, “I have two ferrets, a dog, and some fish that I will be celebrating national pet day with this year.” Stores such as Petco, target and more usually have sales going on for national pet day so you can treat your pet for a discounted price on this special day. Pet parents can also celebrate this special day by putting on a pet movie and cuddling up on the couch with your fur Buddy.
