Search & rescue dogs save lives everyday, using their incredible sense of smell to find people buried in rubble. Therapy dogs perform emotional rescue & they too save lives. Even if they’re not officially trained as such, all dogs are therapy dogs.

Dogs walk happily alongside their significant person on a nature trail and also on the bumpy road of life, always loyal and loving, a sweet furry reminder that all is not lost. After a hard day when life’s cruelties seem too much, a dog’s love can be a reason to keep on keeping on.

People who don’t own dogs sometimes don’t get it. It’s like not having kids and watching parents grapple with screaming toddlers; you watch dog owners pick up poo with little bags and wonder: what’s the attraction? Try fostering a dog or taking care of a friend’s dog. Or, just take a dog lover’s word for it: Dogs are wonderful.

It’s a big responsibility, owning a dog. But those who want or need a dog should get a dog. Make the commitment and give a dog a home. They will give so much back.
