Many families who have adopted pets will be onsite to share their experiences of adoption! See more photos of dogs up for adoption here.

There are many reasons for you to adopt a pet! For example:

A daily walk with your pooch is a great way to get yourself regularly exercising. It is good for your own health, not just your buddy. Adopt a dog and jump-start your healthier lifestyle today.

By having pets, you can teach young children some important lessons in life: i.e how to be responsible. A dog's character can also influence kids with qualities of loyalty, acceptance and unconditional love.

If you are an elderly person you could get a companion. You may even gain more friends in the neighbourhood!

Pets may create a mess at home but you can train them and reward them with treats. Pets are for life! Steadfast and vigilant, dogs have long served as man's protector. They are your trustworthy guardians and your best friends!

Look at these adorable faces! Come along and meet these cuties!
