Love adorable animals? Help recognize National Pet Month by taking a look at some of Bismarck-Mandan's pets.

I love animals. My parents have two dogs, which I consider my own, and I personally have a cat. Our lives would be so boring without pets! When I found out it was National Pet Month I thought it was the perfect opportunity to reach out to you guys.

I asked you to send me photos of your pets and to my surprise, I received quite a few. Some big, some small, and some scaley! Check out the pets of Bismarck-Mandan in the gallery below.
