July 11th is All American Pet Photo Day and while the origin of the day is unknown, every pet is included on this day! It’s time to celebrate everything our pet’s do for us. There are many benefits to owning a pet including responsibility skills, time management, and better health by reducing stress levels and increasing social activities. They also provide us with companionship as well as emotional support. Today is the perfect opportunity to share a photo of all your favorite pets; fishes, birds, reptiles, dogs and cats. Find their favorite toys or outfit and take a fabulous picture to commemorate this day and show off your pet(s).
