May 20 is recognized as National Rescue Dog Day, celebrating the benefits of bringing a dog or other animal into your family.
With more people currently staying home, there is a strong allure to having a furry friend around for companionship. Shy Wolf Sanctuary encourages all families to research the animal they are bringing home to ensure they can make the long-term commitment.
If adoption isn’t a good fit for your family, fostering animals temporarily or volunteering at a rescue or shelter are additional ways to enjoy the enrichment that animals bring. You could save a life in the process.
