Encourage Dog Lovers to Adopt ๐Ÿ’•

Hearts and Bones Rescue is a foster-based organization that has dogs in both Texas and New York.

As I’ve mentioned before, some shelters and rescues have very strict adoption requirements. These requirements are in place for the safety of all the dogs and humans involved, but many humans dislike them.
