The Shelter Dogs of Hillsborough County

Tampa - - Today I visited the local Animal Services shelter.. Here are a couple new friends.
There bodies show what mankind can do to an animal or not do.  Beauty, submissive, intelligent..
Shelter dogs are amazing animals.. To be able to hold sanity, when there is only a kennel or for the lucky ones, an outdoor part of the kennel.  Despite a lack of funding, all volunteers feed and care for the over 130 dogs at this location.  I will be volunteering there hopefully at some point, but its no easy task.
Those who I have seen volunteering are very serious about the dire needs these dogs have..  I hope I can make a difference in the lives of many dogs.  Taking time to assist rehabilitating and releasing animals of all nature is a job done by those who use their time to serve the community and a species as a whole!
Please adopt a shelter dog from a local, non-profit animal shelter.. Ones that euthanize their dogs preferably because those beautiful, loving, playful creatures are depending on You and I to save their lives.. Everyday thousands of animals are euthanized in the United States by animal rights groups as well as county ordinances.
