Today is National Rescue Dog Day. It is a day aimed at encouraging people to adopt dogs from shelters and rescues.

It is estimated that around 3.3 million dogs arrive at shelters every year. Some were abandoned, some abused and some rescued by organizations. National Rescue Dog Day aims to highlight the fact that all of these dogs need and deserve a forever home.

At House with a Heart, we partner will local rescues to help find homes for dogs like these. Please visit our website to see some of the dogs available for adoption through our rescue partners.
