Help Rose help dogs


The other day I got the most adorable e-mail from a 12-year-old named Rose, who goes to school in Westchester County, NY, and is trying to help get two dogs adopted from the Yonkers Animal Shelter. As Rose said, “Currently, I am taking a course named “Animal Rescue.” In this course, we try our best to find dogs their forever homes. I put my best into this course and feel I can do more. Would you help me expand public awareness about our many available dogs? Two dogs, which I am working to find homes, have been at the Yonkers Animal Shelter for a long time and are getting sad. I would very much appreciate your help, and so would the dogs!”

How can you resist that? The dogs, Spot and Penelope, and pictured below. You can learn more about at the shelter’s Web site, or call 914-377-6730.



Good luck Rose! I hope these dogs find good homes.
