National Pet Travel Safety Day

Jan 4, 2016 | Holidays

While the official day is January 2nd of each calendar year, this special day is important to recognize all

year long.

NPTSDThe day was originally established by Colleen Paige, known for her

animal advocacy and the founder of several national days designed

to recognize both our canine and feline companions, as well as other



National Pet Travel Safety Day was created to shed light on the

safety issues for pets when they travel unsecured in vehicles, and to

provide education and solutions for how to make vehicle travel more

safe, secure, and comfortable for both people and their furry friends. Often we don’t think about how

quick stops in traffic, flying debris (for pups with their heads out the car window), or sudden accidents

can both physically and emotionally hurt and scar our beloved pets.
