Are your weekends a little lonely? Could you be in the position to change the life of a furry creature forever? Or, are you looking to add another member of your family during the time of year where love is being widely celebrated?
It takes a lot to love and care for a canine companion, but it can be one of the most rewarding relationships for any human.
