It's National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day today and we're celebrating by showing you all of the pets up for adoption at a Grand Junction Animal shelter.

Today (April 30) is National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day. Today is all about raising awareness for thousands of pets that are waiting at shelters for someone to adopt them, according to National Calendar Day. It's a great day to contact your local shelter about adopting a new family member, especially since we're home more due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Pets bring so much love and happiness in our lives. I adopted my two pets from Roice-Hurst Humane Society and I can't imagine life without them. From the 5 a.m. wake up calls to the bedtime cuddles to the hours of endless entertainment, I love my furbabies and I'm glad I adopted them.

Celebrate National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day by looking at all of the pets that are currently up for adoption at the Roice-Hurst Humane Society in Grand Junction. One of these pets could be the next member of your family, it is the perfect day to adopt.
