Today is National Pet Day! 🐶🐱⁣⁣

⁣⁣National Pet Day is the perfect day to celebrate the happiness we receive from our beloved pets. Yet, this day is also dedicated to the many pets who live in shelters or have lost their owner and need love and companionship, too.

❤️ Today is an opportunity to consider adopting a rescue pet, fostering a dog or cat, or just helping out a pet owner who is having a hard time being able to walk their dog or play with their pets. These acts of kindness can bring priceless benefits to the health and welfare of these pets who need it.

National Pet Day is also an excellent time to ensure your home is safely secured for your pets.⁣⁣ ⁣

🐶 Discard any broken or unsanitary toys, chew toys, leashes, collars, and bedding. ⁣⁣

🐱 Ensure your pets are up to date on their vaccinations and health checks.⁣⁣

⁣🐶 Check collars to ensure tags are secure and phone numbers are legible. Consider microchipping your pet.⁣

⁣🐱 Keep all food bags and toxins safely out of reach of your pets. Cut up all chip bags, snack bags, and pet food bags to prevent pet suffocation. ⁣⁣
