In conjunction with National Love Your Pet Day, Commission Factory celebrates the pets in our lives – and the online stores that keep them happy!
Each year, the 20th of February marks the celebration of National Love Your Pet Day. For pet owners, these furry (and scaly) animals have become like family to our households, and it's a time to show them just how much they matter to us.
Pets in Australia
Australia has one of the highest pet ownership rates in the world. Up to 69% of Australian households own pets - equivalent to 6.9 million homes to date. Dogs are the most common pets in our families, followed by cats and birds.
Pets bring a significant positive change in our lives, with 85% of pet owners saying that their pets have improved their mental and physical health. But as much as our pets love us, we love them back equally! Australians spend over $33 billion annually on pet food, accessories, and vets.
With over half of the Australian households owning a pet, it's no wonder the pet industry is big. The market is worth more than $13 billion dollars, and many retailers are keen to be consumers' No. 1 choice for pet food, products, and health.
Pet retailers that make us smile
Australians turn to pet retailers for the best products and offers in the market, and these retailers help us give our pets the best care and support. Here are two pet retailers that make us smile at Commission Factory, and if you're a pet owner, don't forget to show your animal love today by shopping with them!

What can you do on #LoveYourPetDay?
National Love Your Pet Day is an excellent time to show our love to the pets who need them the most.
Last year, the RSPCA received over 90,000 animals in their shelter. This overwhelming statistic indicates that animal welfare is a prevalent issue that needs to be addressed. As pet-lovers, there are many ways to help animals in need.
To join RSPCA in its cause, consider volunteering your time or giving a donation to the organisation. If you'd like to be an animal's forever home, you can also adopt a pet at your local RSPCA.
