Adopt a Pet – A Promise of Love
By Lana Newkirk

My beautiful puppy dog, Laci, was adopted into my family on December 7, 2012. So if you want to adopt a pet I know the feeling. Up until the point you get the loving creature you’re happy and anxious to get them but you’re also very scared if they’ll be the right animal or if they will even like you. So if you want to adopt a dog, cat, any animal, I say go and adopt her/him and love the animal no matter what.
