The White House has been the official residence of all US presidents since John Adams, our second president, and First Lady, Abigail Adams, moved into the house in November of 1800. But the White House actually belongs to the people of the United States. It’s often been called the People’s House. It’s a place for the nation to meet and celebrate joyous national occasions, share in times of mourning, honor heroes and showcase some incredible national talent.
Besides being an important office, the White House is also a home and many American homes have pets. So, of course, First Families since 1800 have had their own pets. Everyone loves being worshiped enthusiastically and unconditionally and many pets do just this! Presidents and their families keep pets for the same reason anyone else does – they love them.
