I’m an animal person. So naturally, when I went to a fundraiser for dogs in need of homes this weekend, I had to blog about it.
The fundraiser’s theme was “Animals in Wonderland,” and we were asked to envision what wonderland would look like for, well, animals. For my dog, it would be a world where squirrels run really, really, really, slowly. But, as the President of the Humane Society said, wonderland for stray dogs is simply a loving home. And we can all help out in order to make their wonderlands a reality.
To do my part, I’ve put together a blog post full of the dogs that I have loved and seen from my rescue work–or even just some random ones which I thought deserved good, loving homes. Dogs are my inspiration, they’re the reason I go on each and every day, and they give back in so many ways by just loving us, and bringing out the best. And I believe that dogs should all get loving forever homes.
So let’s all give back. Donate or adopt from your local animal shelter, and help a dog find his wonderland.
Click on any of these dogs’ images to read more about them. If you’re interested in adopting any one of these beautiful creatures and making him or her part of your family and life, please leave a comment on this post with an e-mail address where I can get back to you.

Douglas is a 3-year old. 10lb a wired hair Terrier mix. Happy guy, tail always wagging, body wiggling and a smile on his face Rides great in the car Was a little nervous and cautious of the world when first out of the shelter, but is learning that the world isn’t that scary and is actually lots of fun! Loves short play sessions with the small dog in his foster home but is also happy snuggling up in his a comfy bed/crate or on the couch next to you. Very food motivated. No food aggression or resource guarding Wasn’t a big fan of his bath (who could blame him!) but loved to be brushed afterwards Sleeps in his crate quietly at night Seems to be housetrained Discovered squeaky toys and loves them! Barks whenever he sees the cat in his foster home (otherwise not a barker), but could probably learn to live with them
