National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day is observed each year on April 30. This day was created as a way to raise awareness for thousands of pets that are waiting for (and needing) adoption from the shelters.
HOW TO OBSERVE
If you can care for a pet, consider adopting. Celebrate National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day by sharing pictures of your adopted pet on social media using #AdoptAShelterPetDay.
We are currently researching the origins of National Adopt A Shelter Pet Day.
