This week, May 1-7, is National Pet Week®, which is dedicated to celebrating the more than 200 million pets that enrich our lives each and every day.

Sunday: Choose Well, Commit for Life
When you choose a pet, you accept responsibility for the health and welfare of another living thing. You’re making a promise to care for your pet for his/her entire life. You also become responsible for your pet’s impact on your family, friends and community.
We highly recommend you carefully consider what type of pet best suits your family, home, and lifestyle. Unfulfilled expectations are a leading reason why people give away, abandon, or give pets up for adoption, so invest the time and effort to make an informed decision and ensure the years with your future pet are happy ones.
