What we cover in this blog ?


Are you exploring special holidays for pets that honor the unique significance that dogs and cats play in our lives? Well, you've landed at the right spot.

Our animal friends are just as stressed out in this stressful work environment as we are. They, too, need vacations to unwind, feel relaxed, and enhance their mood. Getting them cheer boxes filled with surprises is definitely of the ways. But when is the perfect occasion for a break?

This comprehensive list of national pet holidays, updated throughout November, includes both frivolous celebrations and serious pet awareness days, weeks, and all month-long events that draw attention to problems in the pet community.

History Of National Pet Holidays

National Pet Day was established in 2006 by famous animal welfare proponent and lifestyle advisor Colleen Paige. This day honors the joy pets bring into our lives and raises public awareness of the animals waiting for homes in shelters.

Private organizations typically determine these pet-related holidays, but sometimes, more than one organization will choose to designate a holiday for the same occasion. There are now more occasions to honor the beloved pets we all have!

November Pet Holidays

Here is a list of national pet holidays for November to celebrate joyous occasions with your loving fur babies.

Month Long Observances

Why celebrate pet holidays just for a day when you can celebrate them all over the month?

  • National Pet Awareness Month-

    Through our educational initiatives and resources shared across our different platforms, National Pet Month (NPM) promotes and increases awareness of socially responsible pet ownership.

  • National Senior Pet Month-

    Senior pet animals are recognized and honored on this Day. It encourages owners to cherish and spread the affection of their older pets to the public. Senior pets may have a little more grey and move slowly, but they are just as loving and wonderful friends!

  • Pet Cancer Awareness Month (AVMA)-

    Pets are diagnosed with cancer at a rate similar to humans, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association(AVMA.org). Since November is Pet Cancer Awareness Month, now is a good opportunity to review the condition's symptoms.

  • Pet Diabetes Month -

    November has been designated as Pet Diabetes Month. This campaign offers tools to help raise awareness of pet diabetes among pet owners and treat pet animals appropriately so they can live happy, healthy lives.

Week-long Observances

  • Nov. 6–12: National Animal Shelter and Rescue Appreciation Week-

    In honor of the numerous shelters that care for millions of displaced animals in America, the first full week of November is designated National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week. The celebration also honors the devoted individuals who support the cause by working at the shelters.

  • Nov. 13-19: Human-Animal Relationship Awareness Week-

    More like national dog week from September, this is a week to inspire a safer and more sympathetic attitude toward our furry companions' well-being and help us understand the significance of the bond we share with them. You can buy some adorable customized jackets to make them look cuter than they already are!

Special Days And Holidays

Various dog days, cat day, and more celebrations all over the month!

  • November 1: National Cook for Your Pets Day-

    This special day is dedicated to promoting healthy eating habits among our cherished pets by cooking their favorite food at home that supports good nutrition.

  • November 4: Chicken Lady Day-

    Dr. Marthenia "Tina" Dupree is honored annually on November 4th with National Chicken Lady Day. Dr. Dupree served as the Director of Community Relations and Training for the second-largest chicken restaurant in the world for 12 years.

  • November 7: National Canine Lymphoma Awareness Day-

    This awareness day aims to spread awareness about the symptoms of the disease, how it affects pet animals, and what to anticipate.

  • November 12: Fancy Rat and Mouse Day-

    The purpose of Fancy Rat and Mouse Day is to raise awareness of fancy rats as pets and companions. The "Mus Musculus" family of rats includes fancy rats, which are more attractive than wild black rats.

  • November 17: National Black Cat Day-

    Given their well-established reputation as a sign of bad luck, black cats could use some positive press on black cat day. National Black Cat Day allows cat lovers to celebrate their admiration for their enduringly iconic black cats.

  • November 20: National Adoption Day-

    National Adoption Day draws attention to the many animals in shelters awaiting adoption each year. If for some reason, you are unable to adopt the animals, you can think about contributing in other ways, such as by volunteering.

  • November 19-20: National Dog Show Broadcast-

    Two all-breed dog shows hosted by The Kennel Club of Philadelphia and approved by The American Kennel Club will aid in generating funds for several dog-related charities. Try these trendy pet collars and new style dog collars to make your dog more adorable in shows!

  • November 23: Thankful for My Dog Day-

    In 2020, M.Y.O.S. Canine Muscle Formula established the holiday. It's a day, just like national dog party day, set aside to show our appreciation for dogs for all the ways they lift our spirits, make us laugh, keep us company, show us love and unwavering loyalty, and provide us joy in various ways.

  • November 26: Coton de Tulear Day-

    A day to honor all the Cotons who have physically passed away but who still live on in our hearts.
