February 20th is Love Your Pet Day. Hopefully all pets are loved on all days of the year, but this is a good reason to pamper them a little extra. When it comes to pets, spending time with them and giving them attention goes a long way.
If you have a dog, take them out for a longer walk. Take a new route and spend some time sniffing the trees and fire hydrants. Good for both humans and pooches.
Special treats are always good. All pets appreciate something new and tasty! A lot of human food is bad for animals, especially chocolate and onions, but there are many good treats available.
Giving and playing with a new toy is a great way to bond.
If you don’t have a pet, this might be a great time to adopt one at a local shelter or rescue, or give a donation. Many grocery stores have bins for local shelters where the public can drop off dog and cat food. Most pet rescues also need everyday items such as blankets and towels.
