Dog Adoption Stories Our team takes great pride in giving back to our community. We are extremely active in donating our time to dog adoption and increasing its awareness. Through the numerous years of our involvement, we have many of our own dog adoption stories that we are very happy to share with you. http://www.alwaysadopt.com/event-details Jake Darsch Organizations Involved in: Super Dog Adoption Days, Sponsor for South County Crew Team, Sierra Club, ASPCA and SRI Chamber of Commerce. Kobi's Adoption Story "Kobi was a rescue from the South. He came up for “Super Dog Adoption Day” a few years back as a puppy and was the star of the show. We believe he is a Shepherd / Bernese mix. He is the typical goofy 70-pound lap dog. I had no intentions of adopting another rescue that day but there was no way of walking out without him! He always makes you smile and lights up the world with his always wagging tail." Shelby's Adoption Story "Shelby was a rescue from Southern Virginia. She was found in a dumpster along with her sister at 5 weeks old. I saw her on Pet Finder one night and it was love at first sight. I called the next day and made all the arrangements and then jumped in the car for the 9-hour drive. Thankfully she was a great car puppy for the 9-hour drive back home. We believe she is a shepherd/collie mix. She is always by my side and has a way of jumping into my bed with her "stealth mode". You never see her or feel her jump in, but you will turn your head and she is sharing your pillow!" Bella's Adoption Story "Bella was a rescue from a pet store. She had been there for months and was ill. I adopted her for my Samoyed who was in a depressed state due to the passing of my Malamute. Bella's spirit did the trick and all was right in the world again. Bella is an Australian Shepherd and is the most devoted dog I have ever owned. She will never leave your side and always listens to everything you say. She is now 13 years old and has become the matriarch of our pack."

Rosie's Adoption Story Rosie is a seven-month-old Weimaraner/German shepherd mix rescued from New England lab rescue in Maine. Her and her litter were found alone by a dumpster and Rescued by a good Samaritan. She is spunky, high energy, and absolutely in love with our children. She’s a 60 pound lapdog with the goofiest ears you’ve ever seen.
