Warren’s Pet Of The Week

April 5, 2020

WARREN, NJ — Meet Diesel! He has been chosen as Warren Patch’s Pet Of The Week.

This is my boy Diesel. During this time with so many uncertainties, the one thing we can all be certain of is the comfort that our fur babies are bringing us. While this pandemic is keeping all of us quarantined, our pets have never been happier to have the entire family home surrounding them. I believe our pets are playing a huge role in keeping our sanity. They are all emotional support animals right about now, so give you’re fur babies a hug and kiss, thank them for being there, and keep them safe as well! God Bless and be safe!”

— Michael Aprile, Warren
