Pets bring so much joy into our lives. Bringing home a fur baby from a shelter is one of the coolest things you can do. National Animal Shelter Rescue Appreciation Week is November 3-9.
Mutual Rescue is a non-profit animal welfare initiative founded by Carol Novello, who recently authored the book “Mutual Rescue: How Adopting a Homeless Animal Can Save You, Too.”
