    This sounds like me! I got my own place in may and now that I don’t have roommates I’m feeling the urge to get my own puppy. But, my place has a no pets policy…how did you handle that? I’ll definitely take a look at the shelters since I’ve got some extra time on my hands and a love for cats and dogs :)

    Nice article, Kelly! Thank you for adopting a shelter pit bull, and getting the word out about the incredible dogs in the shelters. As much, thank you for stressing how important volunteers are to keeping municipal shelters operational, such as ours. We miss you volunteering with us at Sacramento County Animal Care, come back any time!

    Great article. Our pup came from the Bradshaw location and 9+ years later she is going strong and sharing her love with all. After volunteering as a dog walker my son too adopted a middle age pup that had became ill. This dog too is a neighborhood favorite and gorgeous!
    We tell everyone that every breed age and size pup is at these shelters and how glorious it is to get to walk play care for all the animals if you are not in a position to adopt. !!!

    Thank you for writing about your own experiences and promoting shelter (or any animal welfare) volunteer work! I’ve been a volunteer for around 9 years and found it very rewarding. To see a cat or dog go from homeless to a beloved family member–well, if you love animals, there’s just nothing like it!
