Did you know that poundWISHES has begun expanding globally? We now not only support rescues, shelters, sanctuaries, and all animal welfare non profits in the US, we're also expanding our efforts into Europe, Canada, Africa, and even Australia. As National Pets in Politics Day, created after Richard Nixon's dog Checkers, is right around the corner, we thought: what better way to celebrate, then by taking you around the world to introduce you to political leaders and their fur-babies! Politicians are best known for how they lead people and what laws to carry out, but rarely do you get to see them sit back and relax with their pets. It may come as a surprise that these politicians also enjoy playing fetch and cuddle time with their animals.
