National Pet Parents Day


Founded by Veterinary Pet Insurance (VPI) in 2007,
NATIONAL PET PARENTS DAY was created from inspiration
in seeing the majority of their policyholders consider their pets
as part of their family. The holiday was celebrated this year on April 26th.

Also, those sick with the virus or deceased will not longer be able to care for their pets."
