I came across this Freekibble site that is petitioning to make April 30th National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day. May not be a huge deal, but you don't have to do much to send the "letter" to President Obama. You just click on the little red box on the bottom right that says "Click Here to Email Our Letter to the President" and then you just type in your name, city and email address and submit! They want to get as many letters in as possible by September 30th.
To my best friend, Natalie: Wipe that disgusted look off your face. Animals are cute!
