Hello from Adopt-a-Pet.com! We are proud to bring our readers a brand new post series today titled “Good News In Pet Adoption.” What is the purpose of this new post series? It is to provide uplifting news from around the country about pet adoption.

Whether you’re looking to adopt, or a volunteer in a shelter the problems of pet overpopulation can seem overwhelming, and no one can do it all. We want to help keep morale strong and inform everyone of good things are happening in the name of helping some of our furry friends.
