Once he recovers from his injuries, Noodle will be ready for a lifetime of love. He's a little warrior who's a big inspiration. Please donate to give him the surgery he needs to walk properly again. Noodle is your Adoptable Pet for the week of July 15, 2013.

Come home, Snoopy!

If you're a Peanuts fan, you know Charlie Brown's Snoopy often thought he was a person (or forgot he was a dog). This Snoopy thinks he's Casanova, because he loves to give kisses. He's not picky either. When a face comes near his, no matter if it's a human or another dog, he's ready to give a big sloppy kiss. And like his Peanuts namesake, this adorable dog has a winning personality. Just say "Snoopy come home," and he'll be happy to oblige. He's your Adoptable Pet for the week of July 1, 2013.
