Shelter Dogs

This video is certainly manipulative and tugs at the heartstrings, but twanging heartstrings is my theme these days. Yesterday marked the six month mark since we adopted our shelter dog, Cooper. I can’t imagine a time when he wasn’t in our lives, and want to again, at the risk of boring everyone, encourage those looking for a pet to go to a shelter and NOT a store. Pet shops are never a good bet for finding family members. Food, yes. Collars and bowls and Kong balls and shampoo, sure, but rescue rescue rescue. You won’t regret it.

One response to this post.

  1. This video is awesome !! I’m a shelter manager in North Idaho and this video not only inspires me but reminds me why I do what I do and I couldn’t have a more fufilling job. Thank you for all that you do to make a difference in these dogs lifes. Your describtion of how these dogs feel and respond to a little kindness is heart warming. Keep up the great work and I’m so blessed to have found this post.

    Thanks Again,
    Kim
