August Dog Rescue

August Dog Rescue01August Dog Rescue17August Dog Rescue08August Dog Rescue20I went to a great event the other day at Gold's Gym in Dallas - August Dog Rescue had some beautiful rescue animals there that were looking for new homes. How could you not love these angels? I know at least one of them found a new home so it was a great day - they just need more homes so they can rescue more animals.
