Ah, I think it is obvious that I love my pets. And the motto of National Pet Day is one I tend to agree with
National Pet Day was founded by Celebrity Pet Lifestyle Expert & Animal Welfare Advocate “Colleen Paige” and is sponsored by – Animal Miracle Foundation + Network.
The pets I have had have never been purchased, as in coming from a breeder or pet shop. I do have friends with purchased pets and I do not criticize them for that choice, or any of you reading this who have done likewise. But there is something about walking into a shelter with so many caged animals and making the decision to take 1 or 2 of them home with you that can not matched by a pedigreed pet I believe, that sense that you have saved them from that coped up life. I also like to think that by loving them each day I help heal the rejection that they must have felt at being ‘turned in” to a shelter and “cast out” from another place.
