Give a Wag! Gives to Dayton Shelters

LUV4K9s mission is this - "To help every dog in our rescue find a safe and loving forever home".  This 501(c)(3) runs entirely on donations and sponsorships; donations are tax-deductible.  This group of dedicated, animal loving volunteers have over 40 years of combined experience in pet rescue and animal welfare.  They got their start by saving dogs from puppy mills and puppy auctions, homeless dogs, unwanted, abused, starving and branded "not adoptable" dogs to give them a safe, loving environment to be rehabilitated, be nurtured and spoiled.  

Many of the pets they initially took in had never even been touched by another human being nor treated like anything more than property.  Until all puppy mills cease to exist and there are abusive, uncaring "humans" out there that do nothing but harm them, LUV4K9s will be their advocates.  Every dog deserves a loving, forever home; every dog that is unloved, unwanted, abused or worse needs a voice.  We can all help put an end to this by becoming advocates for the humane treatment of all creatures and to tell our elected officials that all acts of abuse and neglect against animals receive harsher punishments that a slap on the wrist. 

If you are looking to adopt a new best friend, your adoption fee will cover spaying/neutering, shots, deworming, microchipping, heartworm testing and monthly preventatives.  LUV4K9S is always looking for dedicated and loving volunteers and fosters to care for their adoptable pets until they find their FUREVER homes!  If you are in the area and are looking to volunteer for a good cause, LUV4K9s would be happy to see you!

    Every dog has its day at Dayton's Splash Your Pup!  This year-round, 36-foot swimming pool and diving dog is designed just for dogs, with ramps for easy access!  No worries about harsh chemicals for your sweet pup; they use an advanced filtration system that reduces the chlorine and uses non-toxic minerals.  The pool stays a comfortable 82 degrees year round so its good for older dogs with arthritis and joint issues as well as young pooches.  Exercising in water is good for humans as well as doggos and for the same reasons! It promotes weight loss, the rehabilitation of joints, it reduces stress, is good for the heart and strengthens the muscles. And besides all that, it is a BLAST!
