(WTVM) - National Pet Day is observed annually on April 11. The compassionate day is dedicated to paying attention to pets who may need an extra act of kindness.
Ways to celebrate National Pet Day include taking supplies to animals in pet shelters, adopting pets, assisting struggling pet owners with pet necessities, and buying your pet new toys.
Many take to their social media account to express love for the pets using the hashtag #NationalPetDay.
