You don’t own a dog, you have a dog. And a dog has you!

“You don’t own a dog, you have a dog. And a dog has you!” is a wonderful way to approach life with a dog. It’s a quote I read in a Chelsea Handler book that stuck with me, if you saw her shows, you can tell she’s a big dog lover. (who can forget Chunk!)

If you can imagine a life with a dog, then you can imagine adopting an older dog, and if you are ready to have a dog, then you should consider visiting your local shelter or coming by Muttville Senior Dog Rescue for #ClearTheShelters adoption event tomorrow, August 17th.

On Saturday, from 10AM to 4PM on Rescue Row, senior sweethearts will be looking for love and companionship, a cheerleader, a champion, or simply a caring person to write their final chapter together with. 

Are you an introvert? There is a dog just for you! Want to be the loving hero to write the last chapter in a dog’s life? Here is a sweet sample of the available sugar faces at Muttville:

 

All over the US there are available dogs ready to get another chance at having a forever family of their own. If you live in the Bay Area, stop by Rescue Row in San Francisco and visit Muttville Senior Rescue, the San Francisco SPCA or San Francisco Animal Care and Control for lots of adoptable cuties!
