20 People Who Went the Extra Mile for Their Pets

Our pets are always considered a part of our families — they’re around us all the time, sharing countless moments of joy and sorrow. In fact, 44% of millennials see their pets as their “starter children” before they have real ones. So it’s no wonder that we’re ready to do anything to make our little family members feel safe and happy.
