NATIONAL ADOPT A SHELTER PET DAY - April 30April, 2016
To raise awareness of the thousands of pets that are waiting for (and needing) someone to adopt them from the shelters they are living in, National Adopt A Shelter Pet Day is celebrated across the country on April 30th.
If you’re thinking about getting a dog or cat, be a hero and consider adopting from your local shelter. You’ll be saving a life and greatly improving yours. Dogs are amazing, supportive, and heroic companions who can make a huge difference in your world as a best friend, an exercise buddy, someone who can be trained to provide animal-assisted therapy and help those with challenges they may face, or simply be a fuzzy face to greet you after a hard day at work.
Your local shelter is the perfect place to find dogs and cats of every type, size, age and personality — all waiting for a loving home.
