May 20th Is National Rescue Dog Day
All of our dogs have been rescue dogs from our local shelter. There is nothing quite like a rescue pet. Provide a loving fur-ever home to a rescue dog and you will feel the gratitude forever!
Over 3 million dogs are placed in shelters every year. Unfortunately, many (millions) are euthanized because a home can't be found for them. If you've been thinking about acquiring a dog, please consider adopting one from your local shelter. If you can't adopt, perhaps you could consider fostering or making a monetary donation to your local shelter.
And even though today, May 20th, is the official National Rescue Dog Day... every day is a good day to adopt a shelter dog in my book.
