Of course I love my friends and my family, but I have a special place in my heart for my kitty, Muffin. She has taught me what unconditional love is. For all those that are lucky enough to have pets, you know what that special love is like. Sadly, so many dogs are homeless in shelters, and are not lucky enough to share that bond with a special human of their own.
One local rescue with lots of dogs waiting for their forever home is Love Shack Dog Rescue in northern Virginia.
"The Love Shack Dog Rescue got started in May 2012. Our goal is to save dogs that are about to die simply because there is no room at the shelter that they are at and "their time is up". We don't favor a particular breed, but try to 'pull' dogs that will make wonderful family dogs given a little love, good food, and training. When we feel each dog is ready for a "forever home", they become available for adoption. All dogs stay at the Love Shack Dog Rescue until they are adopted. It is truly their last chance to be loved, and they are going to get it!!!"
