Upcoming pet holidays for the month of September

30/08/2022 | Sandra Dunkins

What we cover in this blog ?

Our pets are such amazing friends and quickly integrate into the family, bringing us so much joy. Whenever we can, we celebrate our pets by having pool parties, dressing them up in cute clothes and pet collars, and celebrating special days.

We all enjoy including our pets on significant holidays like Christmas and Halloween, but there's no reason we can't do so throughout the entire year. But did you know there are numerous other pet holidays to observe in addition to the well-known ones? We have compiled a list of pretty much all September holidays for pets!


Greetings from fall, and get set to party! Numerous pet-related events, like the World's Largest Pet Walk and National Hug Your Hound Day, fall in September.

Month Long Observances:

  • Happy Cat Month:

    Happy Cat Month, observed in September each year, is a celebration that strives to inform and educate cat owners on what they can do to keep their pets happy and healthy. The CATalyst Council organizes it with assistance from partners.

  • Animal Pain Awareness Month

    Animal Pain Awareness Month is in September, so be sure you are fully informed so you can look after your pet's safety and well-being.

  • National Pet Insurance Month

    The month of September is Responsible Dog Ownership Month! Even though we all prefer to think of ourselves as caring pet owners, we all make mistakes. This month-long initiative, started by the American Kennel Club (AKC), aims to teach dog owners how to raise healthy, content pets.

    The month of September is designated as Pet Sitter Education Month. This month-long celebration was started by Pet Sitters International (PSI) to draw attention to pet sitters' dedication to ongoing education and promote the programs now available to pet sitters.
