It might be a picture of him/her as a kitten/puppy, or on the first day you adopted him, or a picture of your pet celebrating a birthday or gotcha day. We’ll compile our favorites into a blog post to honor those special days when we first met our pets!

Two winners will be randomly drawn to receive a $25 gift card each. Winners will be drawn and blog post will go up on Friday, August 15th.
