Beloved pets get a fresh start, and America wakes from winter | Passport Picks

April 11th is National Pet Day and we are celebrating these animal’s new lease on life thanks to technological advances. Left disabled without fins, flippers, beaks, or tails because of disease, accidents, or even human cruelty, some animals need what amounts to a miracle. Amazing prosthetics made possible by the latest engineering and technology are able to provide just what they need, and scientists are finding that innovations created in the process are benefiting both animals and humans.
