Have you been eyeing a cat backpack with a little window for your feline friend to look out of? Maybe you are gone all day and want to treat your dog — and yourself — with a pet camera that tosses treats. Or, maybe it's time your turtle or fish tank had a glow-up. Products like these, plus treats and other pet necessities will be discounted on Amazon Pet Day. 

There will also be deals on popular brands like Fubo, Frontline and Bissell. 

In celebration of Amazon Pet Day, the company said it'll be donating $50,000 to animal shelters in Seattle. Customers can support their favorite pet charities by using AmazonSmile to shop during Amazon Pet Day. 

Amazon Pet Day kicks off at 3 a.m. EDT and is open to all shoppers in the U.S. Pet day deals can be found on Amazon's website.
