Shared Furry Family "Fotos"

In honor of Adopt a Shelter Pet Day, April 30, we showcased the cats and dogs that found their FUR-ever home after being rescued from a shelter. When you're "chewing over" the idea of adding another member to your family, remember to #AdoptDontShop! The unconditional love from a rescue will have you feeling as if the life you saved was more than just theirs. 

View the available dogs, cats and other animals for adoption from the Animal Services Division here.
