For the Love of My Dogs features tips, stories and advice on all things dog. Drawing from personal experiences with dog rescue and my own zoo including three dogs, a cat and numerous fosters coming in and out, I created Love of My Dogs to promote pet adoption, share dog advice and ramble about my own crew from time to time. Additionally, you’ll find healthy treat recipes, shopping reviews, training tips and links to pet adoption resources.

We aim to promote responsible ownership while encouraging pet adoption. Did you know that 17 million people get a new pet each year? Each year, 3-4 million pets die in shelters. Imagine if only a fraction more people chose to adopt! We volunteer and foster for Miami-Dade Animal Services, the government shelter that takes in 100-150 dogs per day and more cats than that. There are times it is heartbreaking to be involved in rescue but turning my back does nothing to help these poor animals. We participate in adoption events, donate time and supplies to the shelter and our favorite thing: foster needy shelter pets who would otherwise be killed.

Along with tips, stories, advice and advocacy, For the Love of My Dogs features our fur-babies:Β Harley, Scarlett, Chelsea and Roory.

Harley: Miniature Schanuzer, 5 years, 8 pounds.

Scarlett: Vizsla mix, approx 2.5 years, 50 pounds, rescued from Miami-Dade Animal Services.

Chelsea: Shepherd mix, 1 year, 35 pounds, rescued from Miami-Dade Animal Services.

Roory: Tabby cat, 15 years, 6 pounds, rescued from the street.

    I believe I NEED to follow your blog, not only for the ‘adorable-ness’ factor but also because I know I’ll be learning much from you about taking better care of my own dogs (I must explore those Dog Treats posts). I, too, am concerned with animal welfare issues and I’m glad there’s one more blogger who’s raising awareness about these. πŸ™‚
