April 13, 2021 – April 11th was National Pet Day. While loving our pets is something we do every day, National Pet Day encourages us to pay special attention to pets who may not get that extra attention.
National Pet Day was founded in 2006 to celebrate pets and the joy they bring into our homes.
As a pet lover, Legislator Kennedy recognizes what our pets do for us on a daily basis and there are cats and dogs who need homes.
