History of National Pet Day

Colleen Paige was the person behind the initial establishment of the day. Paige who is an animal welfare advocate and pet lifestyle advocate entertained the idea of having a particular day only reserved for pets. In 2006 she chose to celebrate pets for the joy and companionship they bring into our lives as well as bringing attention to the sufferings of many sorts of pets that are being held in shelters.

Paige hopes the number of animals residing in shelters would reduce through the celebration of this day. Encouraging people to adopt pets of their choice from shelters is one of the crucial ideas behind celebrating Pet Day.
