Featured Stories

Check out these special dogs and how their paw-rents continue to LOVE HARDER.

Love Harder

These fur babies are all so easy to love, but have a harder time getting adopted.

Pitbull Mixes

Pitbulls are actually some of the most gentle and loyal companions. They love snuggles and can be great with kids!

Senior Dogs

Senior dogs often have calm personalities, need less exercise and are a shorter commitment. They will be so grateful to live out the rest of their days in a loving home!

Wonderful Black Dogs

Color has no influence over a dog’s personality, and black fur hides on clothes and furniture way easier than white fur! These babies are full of just as much love as any other kind of dog.

Dogs With Disabilities

Some dogs that fall under this category are blind dogs, deaf dogs, amputees or those who require daily medication. Dogs are so incredible at adapting, in many cases they’ll get around like any other dog. Dogs with special needs make an extra special bond with you.
