I've been slacking on my Woof Wednesday posts, but I feel that now is as a good a time as ever to get back to it. I don't have a specific dog to bring you today, instead I just have a plea. If you are planning on getting a dog for your family this Christmas, please consider adopting one from a shelter as opposed to getting one from a breeder.
There are thousands of dogs in shelters who would love a place to call home and who are, unfortunately, running out of time. And if you need more convincing than that, please remember that shelter adoption prices as often far less expensive than breeders and most dogs come already spayed or neutered...another expense you need not worry about. But all money aside, the best thing about a rescued dog is the love they give you when you give them a second chance. So please save a life this Christmas! I promise you won't regret it.
Visit your local shelter or look on www.petfinder.com to find an animal in need.
