Today is National Pet Day and many wonderful organizations around the city are celebrating. Here's one on the west side you can check out this afternoon! National Pet Day has been around since 2006, and it's a holiday to bring awareness to adoptable animals in your area and to educate people on why they should adopt not shop!

One great event happening tonight to celebrate National Pet Day is a happy hour event at Fools Gold.
