Pets need a home for the holidays too!

Adoptable pets available in our local community!

Back in October I  had the opportunity to volunteer at the Gulf Coast Humane Society in Fort Myers.

This shelter has dozens of homeless dogs and cats in various shapes and sizes looking for a good home for the holidays. While at the shelter I met one lovable pooch named Maxie.

Maxie was just one of the many available dogs but one who stole my heart. She was filled with love and big wet kisses. I took a picture of Maxie for the Pics for Pets campaign being run by DoSomething.org.

Being at the shelter made me realize there are so many beautiful pets in need of a home. I think adoption is so powerful because we all deserve a place we can call home! While I think Maxie has since been adopted, there are still countless other dogs in need of love this holiday season.
