SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is hosting an event dedicated to teaching the public about past presidential pets.

The event gives the public the chance to learn about little-known pets, like Lincoln’s two goats, named Nanny and Nanko, and other presidential companions like mockingbirds and possums.

The second annual “Pets in the White House” event in Springfield on Sept. 17 will feature a pet parade where the public can show off their furry companions.
