Celebrating “Adopt a Shelter Pet Day” Every Day

Celebrating Adopt a Shelter Pet Day Every DayToday is Adopt a Shelter Pet Day, a day where we spread awareness for pets that need homes in shelters and rescue organizations across the United States. The organizations in our local area are run by a group of dedicated individuals who have a strong passion for shelter pets and would do just about anything to help them find their forever homes.

One of these amazing volunteers is Sierra. In addition to adopting 3 shelter pets of her own, she also has volunteered and fostered animals with numerous rescue organizations in the Fargo-Moorhead area. She improves the lives of animals every day.

 We had the pleasure of meeting Sierra (and her animals) and learning more about her connection to this important day.
