A New Year With New Hopes And Dog Adoptions In 2015

Because ultimately our goal is finding new homes for these dogs, not just getting them out of shelters. We promote "Save A Life. Foster A dog" as part of our fostering campaign because we need to get people to foster the rescued shelter dogs once we get them out of shelters. Continue reading
