Valentine’s Day is typically an either love it or hate it holiday, but animal lovers can all appreciate Love Your Pet Day that is celebrated on February 20 without any mixed emotions.

With February also being National Spay/Neuter Awareness Month and Responsible Pet Owners Month, we have even more reasons to celebrate our furry friends.

While some of these items are for humans too, they definitely are designed for animal lovers.

Note: We receive no money for any of these gift suggestions. They are included because they are good and we like them.
