In America, there is an overpopulation of homeless pets. You can help by adopting from a shelter or rescue group. 

Shelter pets are so greatful to have a loving home. If you truly love animals, please rescue one and you will see, they give you so much love everyday.  It is the best decision I ever made.


I adopted my first dog, a sweet and pretty yellow Labrador mix from the Humane Society of Greater Miami. This chic new shelter has a small selection of pets but they are very sweet. They have a lot of black labradors there. I adopted a black labrador mix, next.  I noticed a lot of black dogs at the shelters. I think some people think they look dark and scary, but that is not the case at all. Labradors, or Lab-Mix's are my favorite breed. They are sweet, gentle, mild-mannered, love to play and great with kids. They don't growl or act possessive. Labrador Mixes are the best and there are lots of them available at shelters. 


My black lab mix is so full of love and playfulness. She is so happy to have a nice, happy, loving home. She loves tummy rubs and cuddling. I love you sooo much and thank God for you every day! She was neglected, skinny and found tied to a fence when she was rescued. Now she is fat (too many treats) and happy!  My children love to pet her and play with her.



South Florida Rescue Groups: is Huge shelter with a great selection of pets. They have a waiting list for certain breeds.


There are many rescue groups for different breeds if you are looking for a certain breed.
