Love Your Pet Day: Meet San Diego’s Favorite Fur Babies and Family!

Pets are humanizing. They remind us we have an obligation and responsibility
to preserve and nurture and care for all life.

Happy National Love Your Pet Day! (February 20, 2017)

That’s right, they created a day for us, San Diego!

San Diegans love their pets


San Diegans might be the worlds most prolific pet lovers. Our restaurants and stores often have food and water available for our fur babies. ALSO IMPORTANT: We have beaches, trails, and parks designated for our fur loves!
