Tomorrow is National Love Your Pet Day

by Char Brooks, J.D.

As we all know, February 14th is Valentine’s Day – a day of celebration for couples. Many of us extend this holiday to include celebrating our kids or special friends.

Needless to say, the gift of time and attention is the one pet’s long for the most. If you’re an active senior, perhaps you’re not home much before you go to sleep. On the other hand, you may spend most of your time at home and your pet may be one of your closest companions. Either way, all pets bring us into the here and now.

If you are having difficulty paying for medications or other needs for your pet, Pet Support Services, Inc. provides financial support if you are eligible.

If you don’t have a pet, perhaps there is one nearby that you can give a little love to. Whatever you do, enjoy your day and appreciate pets everywhere. Their love is unconditional and they bring such joy wherever they go.
