Today is National Pet Day

Celebrity pet lifestyle expert and animal welfare advocate Colleen Paige founded National Pet Day in 2006 to celebrate the joy pets bring to our lives and to create public awareness about the plight of animals awaiting a forever home in shelters and rescues all around the globe.
