Happy Gotcha Day Riggo! Today marks the one-year anniversary of the day we adopted Riggo! Another reminder of how quickly a year goes. I’ve shared Riggo’s homecoming story before (check it out here), so I wanted to use today as an opportunity to say how awesome pet adoption is, and how highly I endorse it. We found Riggo through The Lab Rescue of the LRCP , an amazing all-volunteer run non-profit, that rescues, fosters and places homeless, abused or abandoned Labs (and lab mixes). Each year they give around 850 dogs new and loving homes. How awesome is that?!
The passion these folks have for animals is inspiring, and my goal is to one day be in a position where Joey and I can volunteer and possibly help foster animals on their way to finding their forever home. By now you know we’re a Lab house through and through, but whatever the breed you may be interested in, please please please consider looking into a rescue group, or local shelter first. Without going all Sarah Mclachlan on you, my point is that there are so many animals in need, and through pet adoption you may just find your perfect match. We definitely did.
