National Pet Day Turned Twitter Into An Adorable Zoo Of Furry Friends
National Pet Day is here, and owners are sharing their love for their furry pals. The Twitterverse is exalting in all of the support and love owners feel from their pets everyday, no matter how big or small. From dogs and cats to hamsters and bunnies, these photos of National Pet Day 2020 celebrations are way too cute.
To celebrate the official day dedicated to pets, owners began posting photos of their animal family members on Saturday, April 11. Celebrity Pet Lifestyle Expert and Animal Welfare Advocate Colleen Paige founded National Pet Day in 2005. Paige is also responsible for founding other pet holidays — such as National Dog Day, National Cat Day, and National Puppy Day — in an effort to raise awareness and advocate for abandoned pets by encouraging families to adopt. She's achieved great success with the national holidays, and some have even been adopted in other countries, including the UK, Ireland, Italy, Australia, and Spain, to name a few.
Oftentimes, these holidays encourage pet adoptions and result in an increase in people providing a home for animals in need across the country. Pet parents are celebrating the holiday with adorable photos of their pet family members, giving them the recognition that they deserve. Some of the cutest Twitter posts include owners paying homage to their dogs and cats:
