At an adoption "paw-ty" for your pet, you can celebrate the arrival of your four-legged family member with his or her "furever" family. If you've gotten a dog, choose a pooch-friendly location such as a fenced in backyard or a local dog park. If you've recently welcomed a cat to your family, host the adoption paw-ty indoors at your home. Bake a pet-friendly cake, and invite your family and friends. You also can provide your human attendees with information about adopting a pet from a local shelter to spread the word about the importance of supporting animal advocacy organizations.
If you know the day of your pet's birth, you can make it a birthday shindig; however, if you don't know it, you could opt for March 17, the day that Purina honors all pets with an unknown birthday.
