When You Adopt a Shelter Dog

I worked for my area animal rescue and shelter when I was younger and have cried at the joyous moments when an animal goes to a loving home, and also at the choices that must be made with the ones that don’t get adopted. For Adopt a Shelter Dog month, I wanted to share some things I learned from that experience.

How My Shelter Dog Rescued Me

Me and this little goofy snug bug were meant to find each other. Dogs, all animals really, have a way of opening our hearts wider than we ever thought possible. Animals, unlike humans, will love others more than they love themselves. Anyone who has ever experienced this relationship with an animal has been changed on some level for the better.
