Image for All American Pet Photo Day

All American Pet Photo Day

Pets are celebrated today by having their pictures taken. Over half of American households have pets, making it easy for the day to be celebrated. Dogs and cats are the most popular pets, but those who have fish, hamsters, guinea pigs, turtles, lizards, and other pets can also participate. After pictures of pets are taken, they are often shared online.

How to Observe All American Pet Photo Day

Celebrate the day by taking pictures of your pet(s)! The photos could be candid—of them playing or sleeping—or could be planned out in advance. Since it is "All American" Pet Photo Day and the 4th of July just took place, you could dress your pet up in a patriotic costume. There are many things you could do with the photos, but perhaps the best thing to do would be to share them online. If you don't have a pet, make sure to remind your friends who have pets what the day is, and keep a lookout for pictures of pets.
