Love Your Pet Day is in February, National Pet Day is in April and Take Your Pet to Work Week is in June. But here at the Advocate, we believe you don’t need a holiday to celebrate your pet.

We’re searching for the best animal stories in Lake Highlands to feature in our September pet issue. Check out last year’s edition here.

Whether you have a black labradoodle whose joy is serving  those in need or have a shaggy Goldendoodle with an amazing recovery story, we want to hear what makes your pet special or how you’re advocating for animals.

Don’t have a dog or a cat? No problem. Pigs, chickens, birds, snakes and other reptiles, are welcome.

Email your stories (and pictures!) to by July 15 to be considered for a feature in the September issue of the Lake Highlands Advocate magazine.
