I donate my time to rescue organizations when possible and love to hear the success stories when the animals find their forever homes. There are far too many unwanted dogs, cats and other animals crowding shelters. They're often there through no fault of their own and just want a family to love; that's why I'm so adamant about adopting, not shopping.
Chuck and Chris Coslet held the event at Rusty's Place in Ringwood. It's a great pet supply store with owners who really care about animals and know everyone who walks through their door! If you're in the area, check 'em out!
