Check out local shelters to give yourself the same holiday cheer this year. Today is the last day you can adopt a pet at animal shelters like this one in Gloucester County. Freeholder Dan Christy, liaison to the Gloucester County Animal Shelter is quoted on NJ.com saying, "The holiday season is a time for family and togetherness. What better way to celebrate than by adopting your forever friend."

For those who aren’t going make it out right this second, not to worry. There are countless shelters to visit before and in the new year. If you want to make it a holiday gift, give your loved one a DIY-voucher for a visit to the shelter, so then everyone can take part in the process of finding your perfect rescue dog or cat.
