Happy National Pet Day – What Special Thing Are You Doing for Your Pet?

Today (April 11) is National Pet Day in honor of all the different kinds of pets we own and love. In the event you don’t have a pet, I have a few suggestions for you.

A survey done by National Today found people love to have pets. Almost 20 percent of people own at least one. Many pet owners find one is not enough. In fact, 58 percent of pet owners have two or more of them.

It’s probably no surprise dogs are the most popular pet but there are plenty of animals besides dogs that make great pets and companions. Here are the top five most popular pets. Dogs (45%), Cats (30%), Fish (9%) Bird (5%) Hamster (2%). The other nine percent is divided amongst other mammals, rodents, reptiles, amphibians, and more.

Most of those planning to celebrate with their pet say they will give them a treat. Others will tell their pet they love them, buy a special gift or let the pet sleep with them.

Now, some suggestions for those who don’t own pets. Adopt a shelter pet like one of these from Roice-Hurst Humane Society.

3-Year-Old Female Mastiff Shepherd Mix



Coco is a big girl with a big loving heart. When you come visit her, let her show you how well she responds to commands and walking on a leash. If you have other pets, an introduction before adopting is advised. Coco likes people but also likes her space. A home with older children who know when she needs some alone time would be best.

3-Year-Old Male Autralian Cattle Dog Mix



Darwin is fearful and timid when you first meet him but don’t let that worry you. He was homeless before being brought to the shelter. Since then, he’s been so responsive to leash training and being around loving people that he’s ready for a real home.

5-Year-Old Male American Pit Bull Mix



Harper likes older children and cats and a home with both would suit him perfectly. He’s crate trained, well mannered, happy-go-lucky, and loves being around people.
