20 Homeless Dogs Looking For A Forever Home… I Fell Instantly In Love With #14.

When in search of a new dog to bring into your household and family, you should never shop for one but rescue one.

Animal shelters all around the world help prevent overpopulation and surrenders as they take animals in. It is true that when you adopt a dog from a pet shelter, you are saving a life. Don't worry, shelters are full of various dogs of every breed, size, and age. You're sure to find your new best friend there.

We've taken the liberty of compiling a list of websites you can check out and adopt dogs from for various cities. For even more thorough and detailed information, be sure to visit the website or call the shelters.

Please also note that there is more than one adoption agency website for each city out there. The links we've provided are just suggestions to help you get started on your search.
