The Joys of Adopting a Shelter Dog

There are so many good reasons to adopt a shelter dog.

  • When you adopt a shelter dog, you know you’ve saved a life.
  • The love and companionship of a shelter dog are unmatchable.  These dogs just know they’ve been given another chance at life.
  • You’re giving a good home and a healthy environment to a dog that may have been abused, neglected or abandoned.
  • Your adoption of a shelter dog has deprived a puppy mill of any profit on the sale of a mistreated dog.

Lucy came into our home on June 23, 2009.  She was found starving to death and we also suspect she may have been physically abused by someone in her past.  We adopted her through Animal Friends Society of Tampa, a wonderful all-volunteer no-kill shelter.

After only four months of constant love, proper veterinary care and a healthful diet, Lucy has gained almost 20 pounds (approximately 9 kilos).  She is a year-old Labrador Retriever mix, and she is now a perfect 55-pound (25 kilo) whirlwind of energy.

Here is Lucy the day we brought her home.

And here is Lucy today!
