Happy Adopt a Shelter Pet Day

Adopt a Pet Day

Happy National Adopt a Pet Shelter Day ⁠⁠🐶🐱💗

Adopt a Pet Day

Titus🐕 and Frankie🐺 were both adopted from Westside German Shepherd Rescue (WGSR), and we are forever grateful they were able to save them. Most mornings, you will find them sunbathing in the front window of our office. Come by and say 👋 !⁠⁠

This day raises awareness for the thousands of pets that are waiting for (and needing) adoption from shelters. When you adopt one pet, another gets saved from waiting lists of other pets to be euthanized in animal shelters all over.⁠ Since 2002, WGSR has successfully saved and found loving homes for 13,000+ dogs. Animal shelters like WGSR require year-round assistance, and adoption is a part of the process. Since animals are brought in daily, the shelters must work quickly to ensure the animal’s health and well being. Only then can they be adopted into their forever home. ⁠⁠
