We love our furry, little friends. Many of my family and friends have pets, specifically dogs and I'm proud to say that most are shelter dogs that we adopted. These days there are so many precious dogs waiting to be adopted, you would be crazy not to. Some of the cutest and most loving animals are looking for their 'furr-ever' homes. 

I have 2 friends who lost their beloved pets within the last year. They both had their pets for many, many years, they were family, not just a pet. I spoke to both recently and each said they are ready for a new companion. I immediately knew I needed to recommend some great places here locally to rescue these fur babies. I also knew I needed to share with anyone else who may be in the same situation.
