There is a holiday for EVERYTHING now (some funny, some serious)

Did you know yesterday was Alascattalo Day?

Yeah, neither did I. Apparently its an Alaskan thing. A cross between a walrus and a moose is something that's celebrated. Strange. But I guess they'd probably look at Pulaski Day as something very strange in Alaska.

But some holidays really mean something. Today is Humane Society Anniversary Day. Humane Societies are wonderful things - helping the creatures that get lost in poor decisions, sudden allergies, cruel and inhumane conditions, and the wild creatures that can't survive in the urban environment.
Isn't that a wonderful sight? This picture of the assistance of two pups in the desert was taken by Wonderlane, a flickr user.

So today I thank the people that volunteer, donate and manage the humane societies around the world, for doing such a wonderful service.
Look at that face! Can you imagine taking him home? Photo taken by AScappatura.

Instead of buying a pet, try to find one that needs a home. Donate to your local humane society. This holiday is for real and should be celebrated by everyone in the world.
