It’s #NationalPetDay how is your pet celebrating?

Submitted by Steve on 08:53, 11th Apr, 2019 | 0

National Pet Day is a chance for those of us who own pets to show them how much we love them.

We all can think of the traditional things: a new toy, some tasty treats, or a long walk in the park, maybe a game of fetch, assuming you have a dog!

But, think outside the box and come up with some ideas to celebrate your relationship with your pet. Once you have indulged your own animals with their favourite treats, why not consider donating to the many animals at the GSPCA?
