JULY PET HOLIDAYS
Celebrate these holidays with your pets. Take some of the more “human-centric” holidays and see if you can spin them into a way to celebrate with your pets. Share your creativity with us on our Facebook page!
Share your holiday story with us. If you’re a blogger, contact us (and please put Pet Calendar in the subject line) if you have a pet holiday story you would like us to link to. We have added a few quirky holidays (where you see “Story Idea” below) to give you some ideas.
