Happy National Pet Day!

Kepler, one of the many office pets who frequent and occasionally staff KEXP

Today is National Pet Day! While you probably don’t need a lot of reminders to appreciate that furried, feathered or finned one in your life, who might right now be curled up beside you, romping around your yard or sitting eagerly waiting for food, today is for remembering all our little friends. Pets demand attention, but not all creatures are so lucky. National Pet Day is a time not just to “celebrate the joy pets bring to our lives” but also to “create public awareness about the plight of many different kinds of animals awaiting a forever home in shelters all across the nation.” Enjoy this pet-friendly playlist below and find out more about how you can help the thousands of potential pets who need your love and support here.
