PetGuide.com is dedicating the month of November to multiple pet ownership and we were thrilled to hear that “National Get a Pal for Your Pet Day” is on Tuesday, November 19.

A Pets Add Life (PAL) initiative, National Get a Pal for Your Pet Day was created to celebrate multiple pet ownership and consider welcoming additional pets into the home. According to American Pet Products Association’s (APPA) 2013/2014 National Pet Owners Survey, multiple pet ownership is at an all-time high with 44 percent of pet-owning households in the U.S. owning more than one pet (up from 42 percent of households in 2010).

“This designated day is a great opportunity to help spread the message that, like humans, pets also need pals and companionship when owners are away from home,” said Bob Vetere, APPA President & CEO. “Pets Add Life is all about promoting responsible pet ownership and we truly encourage current owners to consider welcoming additional pets of all types into the home.”

If you’ve never heard of PAL before, it’s an amazing non-profit campaign founded by the APPA that helps spread the joys and benefits of responsible pet ownership and encourages increased animal adoption.

We think it’s a wonderful idea and encourage you to think about bringing home an additional furry, feathered or finned pal home. And because we’re huge fans of PAL’s creative and hilarious videos, we thought we add the latest for you, entitled “Mouse Rover,” to enjoy. Watch it below!
