DENVER (CBS4)– National Love Your Pet Day is Saturday but the focus isn’t on pets who already have homes, instead it’s on those pets looking for a forever home.
Michele Kell, President of Pet & People Sitters, talked about the organization’s mission on CBS4 Morning News on Saturday.
“We are a custom, in-home concierge service. We come into people’s homes and we’re a companion-based service,” said Kell.
Kell said in addition to helping pets and others, the organization focuses on visiting a shelter pet or raising awareness about fostering a shelter pet.
“We delivered cat, dog and horse treats to the shelters as a way to show our love for them, because the volunteers take care of them but they need a little bit more,” said Kell.
National Love Your Pet Day encourages animal lovers to visit their local shelter and donate $1.
