Snuggle your fur babies close: it’s National Pet Day, a celebration founded in 2006 “to celebrate the joy pets bring to our lives and to create public awareness about the plight of many different kinds of animals awaiting a forever home in shelters and rescues all around the globe.” You can celebrate by adopting a pet, volunteering, or donating to a local shelter. If you’ve already got a furry, feathered, or scaled companion, give ‘em a special treat for the occasion, or maybe a new toy. And enjoy this pet-inspired playlist below:
