Adopt a shelter pet day


April 30 is National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day!

It was created to raise awareness for thousands of pets waiting for their forever home.

Leaders with the Humane Society of Marathon County said it's important to go through a shelter instead of a puppy mill.

"You're saving a life," said Lisa Leitermann. "Not only the life of the pet you're adopting, but the life of the pet that's going into the kennel next. And they save your life a little bit too."
