Hug a dog on National Mutt Day!

So many dogs are looking for forever homes, celebrate National Mutt Day by taking one home!

 National Mutt Day is July 30th — a day for embracing, saving and celebrating mixed breed dogs!

It was created to raise awareness of mixed breed dogs in shelters around the nation. It is estimated that 80% of the dogs in shelters are mixed breeds. While some people look down on mixed breeds and think they are inferior to purebred animals, this couldn’t be further from the truth! Mixed breed dogs tend to be healthier, better behaved, live longer and are just as able to perform the duties of purebred dogs – such as bomb and drug sniffing, search and rescue and guiding the blind.

Here are a couple of pups who could use a forever home in the West Palm Beach area:

Name: Soos

Age: 3

Full of love and energy, Soos is looking for an active home. He came to Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League with his 3 brothers and sister after his owner lost his home. He’s been through their “Canine Good Citizen Shelter Dog Program,” a six-week training regime that ensures he’s an upstanding canine citizen.

Name: Snickers

Age: 11

Snickers is an older gentleman looking for a nice retirement home. He’s was adopted from Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League before but his owner passed away so now he’s looking for another home to spend his golden years. He’s a calm fellow, but he does have some pep! Another graduate of the “Canine Good Citizen Shelter Dog Program,” he handled it all perfectly. He loves people, attention, and treats. His adoption fee will be waived and all of his medical care, supplies, food, and vaccines are all supplied by Peggy Adams. All you need to do is give this good boy a great home.

Even if you can’t adopt, you can still make a huge difference. Head on over to Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League for more information on volunteering and donating. They even offer duties for people who can’t be around animals!
