Make Your House A Home - Adopt a Shelter Dog or Cat!!

This month's (AUGUST) Adopt-A-Kennel is from a very sweet young man named Asher Stamm. Asher saved his money, and decided that he wanted to adopt Petra's kennel to help her get adopted. It worked. Petra was adopted that very week. So this month's Adopt-A-Kennel Sponsor is Asher Stamm, because of his very special love of all animals. A very special thanks to all of our sponsors for their continuing support.
