On This Day: National Pet Day

CassiusCassius always looks forward to April 11th because it is yet another day for him to show off.  The benefits of pets have long been proven, but National Pet Day also has a focus on the thousands of pets in animal shelters.  Consider adopting a pet before you shop breeders and other sources.  The National Pet Day motto is easy to remembers “Adopt! Don’t Shop”  You could end up with a little guy as adorable as our own Cassius!
