It's National Dress Up Your Pet Day!! This can be lots of fun but make sure everything fits correctly, doesn't restrict their movement and doesn't have loose ends that can be chewed. Most importantly, if your pet doesn't enjoy being dressed up, pass on this holiday! #DressUpYourPetDay

National Dress Up Your Pet Day

A day to celebrate our pets with fun fashion and promote pet adoption.


Today is Save the Eagles Day. There are more than 70 species of eagles throughout the world. The only exception is Hawaii, where no species of eagles reside. Poaching, pesticides and other dangers continue to threaten eagle populations.

Some species of eagles are on the endangered list due to poaching and pesticides. However, due to the work of scientists and the public, the Bald Eagle was removed from this list in June 2007. #SavetheEaglesDay

Looks like you don't have to ban poinsettias from your home this holiday season. Even if Fido or Mittens gets into them, they're not deadly, just "sickly". See what the Pet Poison Helpline says below.

Poinsettias and Cats, Dogs - Poinsettias Poisonous to Cats

Poinsettias are only mildly toxic to cats and dogs. Medical treatment is rarely necessary, but if you think your pet has been poisoned, call your vet or 800-213-6680.
