In this time of chaos and self-isolation, it is important to take a step back and think of the companionship and amusement our pets provide. Many of us are afraid of what’s to come, but there is one thing that remains the same- the people of PMH have some really cute pets. So for now, take some time to appreciate the following animal friends.
