From the Dogster Community...
Here's another truly inspiring sentiment from the human of Dunkin

Dunkin had been in a kill shelter in another county and he was on the euthanasia list--not long for this world. The folks at ARF took him in. ARF is a no kill shelter. He had been at the ARF facility for some time and I simply couldn't figure why he had not been adopted right away. Well, now I know--he was being kept as a special gift and blessing for me. I couldn't be more proud.

Dogster gave me the opportunity to tell others about ARF and to meet other Bassadors, like Dunkin, and to connect to a wonderful group of folks who love their fur kin as much as I do. I have never found a site like Dogster! So much is offered to participate in, a bevy of ways to share, the cutest collection of photos of fur kin I have ever seen. It is a pleasure to sign in to Dogster, to join the Groups, post in the Forums, send Rosettes and bones, Message other Dogster canines. If there is a site more dedicated to dogs, I have not found it or anything close to Dogster.

Thanks for the story Dunkin (and family). We really love to hear from everyone. Please, keep the stories coming! Send them to: Randi [at] Dogster [dot] com.

May all animals be happy and safe,
Ted, John, Steven & Dogster HQ
Dogster, for the love of dog!
