Today, May 20th is National Rescue Dog Day! Rescue dogs are the best! I have a magnet on the back of my car in the shape of a dog paw and it says "Who Rescued Who?"

We have been blessed to have had 5 shelter dogs as part of our family! Katie was adopted from the Bangor Humane Society, Henley, who  was adopted from the SPCA of Hancock County and Bob who came from Star Bright Animal Rescue.  Elmer and Pebbles, our Great Danes, are both rescues, having been rehomed from their original owners

Currently there are 56 dogs listed on Petfinder.com within 100 miles of Bangor. Could one of these be your next family member?
