Finding Your Best Bud
We know what you’re thinking. Isn’t it about time you committed to getting a pet? Before going to your local shelter or rescue group to meet the dog of your dreams, get the resources to become a pet adoption pro. You’ve made it this far — why back out now?
The Difference A Day Makes
Learn from Tommy & his fiancé. They weren’t sure they were ready for a pet, but a day of volunteering changed that. Read their Happy Tail to learn how a Saturday spent walking dogs confirmed what they’d suspected all along — it was time to adopt.
