Today is National Pet Day! This holiday is all about appreciating and celebrating the wonderful pets in your life. Now, we all can think of the traditional ways to celebrate: a new toy, some tasty treats, a long walk in the park, or maybe a game of fetch, assuming you have a dog! But, think outside the box and come up with some ideas to celebrate your relationship with your pet. Once you have indulged your own animals with their favorite treats, why not consider donating to a shelter or other animal welfare organization?
There are so many neglected and unwanted animals waiting for some love and attention. You can donate your time, or you can donate food or other supplies. Every little bit helps. If you don’t already own a pet, what better time to adopt one? A good phrase to keep in mind is “adopt, don’t shop.”
