National Animal Shelter & Rescue Appreciation Week: Photos & giveaway!

Two of Liz's rescues: Lily and Oreo. Most of you already know that Liz is a self-proclaimed animal-a-holic. She admitted as much in her Puppy Love post written almost exactly one year ago. In fact, she's been known to bring home a dog or two without asking her hubs! (Thankfully he's as much of a pooch lover as she is.) And since she wrote about adopting three dogs into her family (Layla, Lily and Oreo), she's added a fourth into the mix: Scotty. And he is darn cuuuuuute.

And Lisa, who said she'd NEVER get a dog while living in the Midwest because she didn't want to deal with things like: walking him or her in the Polar Vortex conditions, soggy  fur and muddy paws, has now adopted not one but two puppies! (Lily and Chesney.) So between the two of us, we have SIX dogs. But six really cute dogs, if we do say so ourselves!

In honor of National Animal Shelter and Rescue Appreciation Week, we're giving a shout out to all the amazing people who work so hard to help homeless animals find their fur-ever families and sharing some adorable photos of our four-legged family members. And we're also giving away a copy of Doghouse by L. A. Kornetsky. Just leave a comment (we'd love to hear about your adopted pets!) and you'll be entered to win! Contest closes on Thursday, November 6th at 10:00 a.m. PST.

We could never say enough good things about the people who do everything from fostering animals to caring for them while they are in shelters to working for the rescue organizations that place animals with their families. So we hope a THANK YOU will suffice. We know our dogs are incredibly grateful (as you'll see from the photos) as are the many other pets that have been placed with loving families.

Liz adopted Oreo from Pawville Pups. She got Scotty and Lily through the San Diego Humane Society. And Layla is from  Stray and Orphaned Animal Rescue.

Lisa adopted her Lily from Save A Pet and got Chesney from Reach Rescue. Thank you to all of the wonderful people at these organizations!
