10 Cutest Adoptable Dogs
This week's feature and slideshow brought attention to what animal rescues organizations are doing and can do to stop unnecessary shelter killing of dogs and cats. What the story didn't mention is that you can do something too--spay and neuter your animals and adopt pets from shelters.
There are an estimated six to eight million animals that are abandoned every year and half of them are put down, says Daphna Nachminovitch, a vice president for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. "The problem isn't so much that the animals are euthanized, the problem is that too many are born. People need to look in their homes and think about how they get their pets."
So, without further ado, we present you with the Top 10 Cutest Adoptable Dogs in the Twin Cities. Ranked from preciously sweet, to downright adorable, each one of these pets needs a home. (Click on the animal's name for adoption information.)
