It is so unfortunate that there are thousands of dogs that are euthanized every year in our local shelter when there are so many dogs that would make fabulous pets. Please help us make a difference by spreading the word--share this blog on your Facebook page, Tweet about it too.

You can also have your pet micro-chipped for only $20 right at the shelter. That way if your pet is ever lost, he or she can be returned to you quickly when they are picked up by animal control.
