Photos: It's World Animal Day, so here are pictures of your pets

In honor of World Animal Day, we asked viewers to send in pictures of their pets, and boy, did they ever. Dogs, cats, lizards, goats, horses - here's a cross-section of what we received.

World Animal Day is celebrated in conjunction with the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.

Join us on Sunday, Oct. 13 all day on KATU News. We'll be teaming up with the Oregon Humane Society to raise money for animals in the Portland area.
