Feb. 20 is Love Your Pet Day, an annual "howliday" devoted to all our furry friends.
For many of us, pets are valued members of the family. They give us unconditional love without asking too much from us in return. Whether you prefer dogs, cats, rats, horses, birds, ferrets or pot-bellied pigs, pets bring so much to our lives, don't they? Love Your Pet Day reminds us to do something special for our two or four-legged friends.
Love Your Pet Day is the "purrfect" time to adopt an unloved, neglected and/or abused animal from the local shelter. Each year, millions of beautiful dogs and cats are euthanized waiting for special people to give them "furever" homes. Please consider opening your heart and your home to an animal in need. Visit your local animal shelter and give a pet a once-and-forever home - before it's too late.
