Meet Ziti. My family adopted her this week, and today’s Care Package is a celebration of our amazing new good girl.

Dog knows when friend will come home
because each hour friend’s smell pales,
air paring down the good smell

We adopted Ziti from this amazing organization, and so have several friends of mine. Collectively, our experiences have been very positive, and if you’re looking to adopt a special pooch, check them out. If you’re not in the area, visit petfinder.com to seek out dogs up for adoption where you are. If you aren’t looking to add a dog to your family but want to support organizations that rescue them, you can donate to aspca.org, The Animal Rescue Site, or your local Humane Society.
