Did you know today is National Puppy Day? I hope these pictures of cute puppies make you smile and go hug your dog (or cat). If you’re thinking of adding a furry friend to your family, please consider adopting from your local animal shelter.

Whenever I meet a new furry friend, I’m overcome with a desire to adopt a dog, but then I think, “Nah, I’m OK,” after I dog sit for my sister and dad. As much as I love and adore dogs, I’m not quite ready to be an owner.

One of my favorite animal rescue sites is Best Friends Animal Society in Utah — bestfriends.org — an organization that depends on volunteers. Many many many years ago, I read an in-depth article on the animal society and the thought of visiting has stuck with me for years.

Best Friends Animal Society relies on volunteers to help rescue animals prepare for their forever home. From petting to grooming to caring for the many animals to simply cleaning floors or facilities, kind-hearted people travel from all over the country to volunteer.

For more information, read this fabulous article “Vacation Destination” and look at heart-warming pictures of volunteers and animals. Not only do the volunteers look happy to give their time and love, but the animals seem to enjoy the attention and affection. I totally need to go there now.
