National Love Your Pet Day Encourages Foster Homes For Homeless Pets

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.
