TODAY'S TALK: National Dress Your Pet up Week


Grab your cat, dog, hamster, or even turtle because today is National Dress Up Your Pet Day.

According to the day's website, the day was founded by celebrity pet lifestyle expert and animal advocate Colleen Paige, also the founder of National Dog Day and National Cat Day.

Dress up your pet day is meant to be a fun day that gives pets a little more attention and another way to promote pet adoption.

Here in Winnebago County, according to the Winnebago County Animal Services, the group shelters and cares for over 10,000 stray, abandoned, injured and unwanted animals every year.

A veterinarian oversees the care, sanitation, and preventive health care for the animals housed at the shelter.

Animal Services are able to facilitate adoptions on and offsite.

WCAS says because of volunteers, rescue groups, and fostering parents, they are also able to increase the number of pets available for adoption to our community.

Tune into 13 News at noon for this week's pet of the week.
