Thx for posting this. I've adopted several dogs over the years, have fostered some and also volunteered at local rescues. There are so many wonderful pets in need of loving homes. This is a cause near and dear to my heart. I also have great respect for Lone Star Rescue. My niece got a wonderful dog from them and I've helped them out here and there during events. Great group of people!
