HAPPY NATIONAL ADOPT A SHELTER PET DAY!!! This day was created as a way to raise awareness for the thousands of pets that are desperately and anxiously waiting to be adopted from animal shelters! Proud owners of rescue pets will tell you that the life they saved stares up at them every morning with complete gratitude because they were given a second chance at life and at happiness (or because they want some of whatever you’re eating). For those of you without a shelter animal in your life, what are you waiting for?! In honor of National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day, WAGS first wants to send out a huge THANK YOU to everyone who worked, volunteered, or adopted a pet this weekend at Pet Expo 2018! 41 pets were welcomed into the loving arms of new families! All the furry feels to be had here! However, as i choke back tears while writing this.. FIVE of our dogs made the trip back to the shelter with us yesterday and are still without a home, and a family to call their own. FIVE amazing dogs that didn’t understand why no body picked them. SO, this is a CALL TO ACTION for everyone in our community.. come be apart of a once in a lifetime opportunity and adopt one of the LAST five adoption available dogs we have here currently at WAGS! This has not happened ONCE in five years!! Our goal is to provide you with a full heart and us with an empty shelter. BUT, We cannot do this with out YOU. So if you have the opportunity to adopt PLEASE come down today and meet our “leftovers” that were passed by at Pet Expo. If you cannot adopt please spread the word by liking and sharing this post so that our last five dogs can find the loving home they deserve! Pictured below are our five remaining dogs. Let today be the perfect time to expand your family by four furry paws (Or in Tres’ case three)! You can also celebrate National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day by sharing pictures of your adopted pet on this thread and by using #AdoptAShelterPetDay . WE HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON!!!
