Adoption & Rescue

Dog adoption is one of the most rewarding, selfless, wonderful things you can do! The ASPCA estimates 5-7 million pets are brought to shelters every year. Sadly, 3-4 million of these animals never leave the shelter and are instead put to sleep. Choosing to adopt a pet means choosing to save an innocent animal’s life. It means having a pet that knows you saved him; it means doing something that will forever change your life. Many people (including myself) who rescue a pet say the animal they saved actually saved them.

By choosing adoption, spaying & neutering, being responsible pet owners and standing up against animal abuse, we can all save innocent lives! Below you’ll find links to search adoptable pets, personal dog rescue stories and great information on pet adoption. Choose to save a life ~ Adopt!
