Today is the Best Day to Adopt a Lufkin Shelter Pet

There are hundreds of pets in shelters across East Texas right now, waiting for an awesome home like yours.  And it’s National Pets Day, so today is the perfect day to go get one, like our super cuddly and slightly spazzy Libby.  Have you browsed through these Lufkin shelters?

We stumbled upon Libby one Saturday afternoon as we were out doing errands, and the girls fell in love with her.  A shelter group had cages set up at a pet store and we got completely sucked in, which is precisely why most parents run fast the other way when they’re within a fifty foot radius of cute dogs that need homes.  But we had been looking and talking about adding a new pet anyway, so it all worked out.

Libby is a Mini Pin-Chihuahua mix and there may be a couple of other blends in there too, we’re not too sure.  All we know is that she’s always happy, she has lots of energy but not so much that it’s annoying, and she’s the best lap dog ever.  We call her boomerang because we have to gently push her off when we’d like to get up off the couch, and the minute we sit back down again she comes right back to us like, well, a boomerang.  She knows our daily routine, goes outside when she has to go, she listens better than the kids do, and she loves us.

I can’t imagine Libby with any other family, and I don’t like thinking about what might have happened to her if we had not stumbled upon the pet rescue group’s adoption event that day.  Dogs are euthanized every day, and the only way we can keep that from happening is to adopt, adopt, adopt.

In Lufkin, check out these places today so little squirts like Libby can have a great life full of treats, back yards, and cozy laps.
