Why I Volunteer: Jenn
Oakley at PetSmart. I volunteer in animal rescue because I love animals. …Obviously, right? But it’s about more than just loving them. It’s about believing that they deserve more respect and love than they receive. And it’s about fighting for their rights when they cannot do so themselves.

Featured Adoptable Dog: Max
When meeting Max, most people have to fight their urge to take him home and cuddle him all day. I myself was wondering if he’d just escaped from Build-a-Bear. He’s been in the TAGS program since February. His current family had to make a hard decision to surrender him. They wanted the best for him, as they realized that they won’t be able to

Some of you may be looking outside and thinking, Wait, this grass isn’t green enough! and also may be thinking about purchasing some lawn care products. But hold that
Tucker’s New Life
Tucker (formerly Tanya) arrived at TAGS in November. Very often we see families moving away and not bringing their dogs along. Tucker’s case was the same. Suddenly she found herself at a very different place, and without her family. It was a big change for her, but she adapted quickly in her temporary foster home, thanks to her calm and loving nature. Little did
Age Is Only a Number
When we started looking for a new dog, we had no intention of adopting a senior. Only 10 months before, but feeling way more recent, we’d experienced the tail end of years of watching our senior dog, Roxie, decline, until we ultimately had to make that tough decision all pet owners dread. Roxie on her last day with us. So when we were ready
