What sad, darling little faces. I hope this inspires those people who can afford to take someone new into their lives to step forward and save a life.

I have two dogs and two cats already, but they are small ones and maybe one more wouldn't make a difference here.

I can't imagine much worse than having to tell your child that their loving pet has to find a new home because you can no longer afford to care for it. The Animal Shelter does a terrific job - even if you can't afford the 40.00 or 60.00 to adopt a pet, please consider donating a small amount on a regular basis.

in time of trouble, that's when you need a good dog the most! a dog to walk with, play with, comfort with, and that dog doesn't read your checkbook.
you come home, tired and worn and he is so happy to see you. you need some diversion and she's always the playmate.
when you don't feel well, your dog will snuggle close to give you support and encouragement.

now, people need dogs more than ever. Dogs are a most special gift from God. and they just want to belong.
