Happy National Dress Up Your Pet Day! This fun holiday was founded by Celebrity Pet Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate Colleen Paige – who is also the founder of National Dog Day and National Cat Day.
According to founder Paige, National Dress Up Your Pet Day is about giving your pets a little more attention and promoting pet adoption.
I realize that there are many people who are excited about this day and some others, not so much. The one thing that I feel important to note is that as silly as this day may seem to some, all of my holidays have the underlying goal to help save lives and give homeless animals as much exposure as possible.
According to the National Pet Owners Survey, 63% of U.S. households currently own a pet which equates to more than 69 million households!
So, it’s no surprise that this day gets extra attention and several pet lovers dress up their beloved pets for fun! Here at Loom and Leaf we support having fun with pets and have even dressed up some of our office pets.
We think Helo and Bailey look rather cute posing on our Loom and Leaf mattress! If you want to participate today, please share your photos with us with #LoomandLeafDressedUpPets.
