All-American Rejects guitarist Nick Wheeler and his adopted dog, Dex

Rockers The All-American Rejects (AAR) want to help spread the word about how great adoptable pets are. And they should know: Guitarist Nick Wheeler’s adopted dog, Dexter, is their unofficial fifth member and joins them on all their U.S. tours! (Read Nick’s Happy Tail.)

So all year, AAR will be working with Petfinder to help other pets find homes and to give back to those who help. First up: Three lucky Petfinder fans will win tickets to see AAR in concert and a signed copy of their new album, Kids in the Street. (Find out how to enter here.)
