We’d also love to hear from you on your shelter dog success stories. Have a shelter dog and want to tell their tale? Contact us with your story and we’ll share it on our blog, or tell us a little more about your shelter dog success story in the comments below.

We love to hear about all the great dogs getting a second lease on life thanks to the many wonderful adoption organizations out there. And while we’re working on our blog series, you can also read more great tips, success stories, and information on the ASPA’s website today.
