The secret lives of pets: 225’s November 2023 issue is on stands now

Sometimes we find our pets. But other times, our pets find us.

Loyal and adorable, our furry friends make for great companions. And at their very best, they can also lift us up, push us out of our comfort zones and help us lead more joy-filled lives.

In this month’s cover story, we’re celebrating the stories of a few special pets in the Capital Region and the organizations that help them thrive—slobber, venom, adoption processes and all. We’ve paired these stories with guides to local pet-friendly restaurants, animal rescues, pet shops and much more.

Also in this month’s issue, we’re teaching you how to set your Thanksgiving tablescape, where to find neon signs around town, how the Festival of Lights display comes together and much more.
