Please, will you join the “Help Petfinder Adopt the Internet Day” effort on March 15th? Email your dog loving friends and relatives. Feel free to share this blog post with them. Heck, write a blog post of your own! Together we will increase awareness about adopting homeless pets and hopefully create the kinds of happy endings that Quinn and my family have enjoyed.
Do you have your own story about adopting a homeless pet? We’d love to hear it. Know of an animal who needs a home? On March 15th, please post a photo along with adoption contact information on my Facebook page (
