April 30 is National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day

Furry friends in need are the focus of National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day.

The annual event, celebrated on April 30, was created as a way to encourage adoption of pets currently waiting in shelters across the United States.

People on social media tweeted photos of their pets that they adopted using #AdoptAShelterPetDay.
