Deciding to purchase a new dog or puppy is an exciting time. One of the most interesting features of their website is that you can help fund shelters by donating about 70 cents a day.

Once you are approved you will be notified when a dog or cat is available for you to take care of. Make sure that the rescue group knows what size of dog is best for you and how many you can take in your home.

Of course, as an animal rescue person, I discourage anyone from deliberately breeding more dogs. If you adopt a dog from a shelter you must be prepared to pay about $65 ( municipal shelters) or up to $500 ( purebred rescue groups). Just as some people would only own a Corgi and others are not content without a German Shepherd, some would only take a mixed breed dog.
