BAY CITY, Mich. -- Established in 2006, National Pet Day is observed every year on April 11th to celebrate all the furry and not so furry friends who bring such joy to our lives. Additionally, it is a day of awareness for the many shelter animals in need of good, loving homes. At Graff Bay City, we're crazy about our pets, your pets, and really all pets out there; and would like to share with you 5 things you can do to celebrate National Pet Day with your buddies, or even make a big difference in the lives of others!
1. VOLUNTEER AT A PET SHELTER
The Great Lakes Bay Area has tons of great pet shelters that need your help! Exactly what you can do by physically committing your time may vary between place to place, so it's best to check with the shelter of your choice before you do so. If you can't make it in regularly, you can also ask about donating essentials like food, toys, leashes, and more!
2. ADOPT A PET
If you don't have a pet currently or feel the need to expand your fur family, considering adopting a pet from a local shelter or rescue facility! While most people opt for puppies or young adult animals, keep in mind that there are also many senior dogs and cats in need of loving homes. Whoever you choose, know that you're doing more than getting a new pet - you're saving a life!
3. GO ON AN ADVENTURE
While you don't need a special day to hang out with your pal, going on a day adventure together is a great way to spend National Pet Day! Go for a car ride, plan a hike, have a picnic in the park. Anything goes!
4. SCHEDULE A GROOMING APPOINTMENT
Even your buddy deserves a nice, relaxing spa day. Schedule in a bath, haircut, and nail trim at a local groomer - or do it yourself at home!
5. THROW A PET PARTY
National Pet Day is always more fun with friends! Provided they get along, have your besties' pets over for a playdate.
