Today is National Pet Day!

Celebrate the wonder of unconditional love that our pets give us. Then pause to think about how you might help the millions of shelter animals who are dying to share that love with someone.

Every little bit helps!  

The statistics can be overwhelming to think about. Yes, we're talking about the 16,000 beautiful shelter animals that die needlessly every day. It's difficult to wrap our minds around that statistic.

But if a million people gave $1 a month to a shelter, that's $12 million raised for homeless pets across the nation!

So instead of that latte, consider donating a small amount to a rescue. Whether it's a bird, cat, horse or dog rescue, it will will change lives... including your own.

Consider fostering

Tito, our 3-year-old foster Chiweenie

Want more of a hands-on way of making a difference? We highly recommend fostering! Taking in foster pups has greatly impacted us here at BaxterBoo.com. We've partnered with Paws & Co. Adoptions and opened our lives to a couple of dogs so far.

The transformation of these scared, thin pups into perky, content companions has also changed us. Our preconceived notions of why dogs end up in shelters were challenged. They may have been hurt, but they forgive and heal much more quickly that us humans.

How will you celebrate National Pet Day?
