TIme for Talking Pets to honour the rescue pet, those that have no home but have a lot of love to give. And to honour those owners who have adopted a pet, from a shelter, pound, the neighbourhood stray.
This week’s Talking Pets show included:
Your stories about pets
We heard from lots of you about how your pet came to live with you. It is beautiful to hear of how so many listeners adopt their pets and some are even fostering pets until they find their homes. Good on you! You can share your story in the comments below too if you like, or promote your rescue organisation.
