Today, April 11, is National Pet Day. According to Pet Day USA, it was founded by Pet and Family Lifestyle Expert Colleen Paige. She is also an animal welfare advocate.
According to the website, Paige founded the day of recognition “to celebrate the joy pets bring to our lives and to create public awareness about the plight of many different kinds of animals awaiting a forever home in shelters and rescues all around the globe.”
She adds, “I believe all animals are sentient beings that deserve our love and compassion…even not-so-cuddly animals like reptiles and rats. No animal should ever have to suffer, especially at the hand of humans.” Paige asks us to donate to our local animal shelters.
The Powell Group knows many of us treat our pets like family and have at least one furry family member in our home. Our team members are here to assist with making your homes pet-friendly.
Why not pamper your kids today?
