First day of summer pictures from Best Friends

Need a cure for the Monday blues? Our photo feature is here to help provide a brief diversion from your workday routine with a small dose of squee, wow and awwww. Enjoy!

Wow, it’s hard to believe that it’s summer already. However, here we are and Best Friends’ animal residents sure enjoy soaking up the rays, taking dips in the water and more. Enjoy the Sanctuary summer edition of funny pet pictures with captions.
