My mission is to help get the word out about a wonderful website I found by accident. DogsinDanger (www.dogsindanger.com) is a non-profit website aimed at helping get shelter dogs saved before it's too late. It allows shelters to post pictures and info about their dogs and how long they have left to live. It's sort of a last minute life line by giving the dogs the exposure the need to hopefully find their loving home in time. After visiting the website, I came across an adorable black/white 1 year old dog from a rural California shelter. I contacted them immediately and found out that he was one of the volunteer's favorite dogs. She even payed for his neuter surgery in hopes that it will help get him saved. The shelter told me that he had been at the shelter for over 3 months and nobody wanted him. Many rescue groups and potential adopters visited the shelter but always ignored his cage. I don't understand why because he is the sweetest and most gentle dog I have come across. But now when I look back I think it was meant to be that way...because he was destined to become a part of our household :) It has been 5 months since we adopted him and could not be happier with him! My goal with creating this group is to encourage others to visit the website and help get these sweet animals saved. Even if you're not able to adopt, please contact your friends, rescue groups, and post on forums. It really does make a difference!
