Pet lovers, rejoice–February 20 is National Pet Day!

Whether they have fur, feathers or scales, it’s a great opportunity to show your pet some extra love!

To celebrate, here are a few fun pet facts from the North Shore Animal League:

  • Dogs can donate blood to other dogs and cats can donate blood to other cats.
  • Studies have shown that people who own pets live longer, have less stress, and have fewer heart attacks.
  • Over 50% of all pet owners would rather be stranded on a desert island with their pet, not another person.
