There’s no better way to celebrate Earth Day than by “recycling” in the best way – adopting a homeless pet! There are dozens of animals awaiting their forever homes at MHS – you can see them HERE!

Of course, we know that not everyone is in the position to adopt a pet at this point in time. But you can spread the word of what a great choice adoption is, or you can check out these cool craft ideas of ways to recycle and make cool things for your pet (or to donate to a shelter!)
