AF, Thanks for your service!
My family has become quite involved in our local animal shelter/rescue organization on many levels.
It has been a very educational experience for me.
I'm a fan of the animal shelter programs and also appreciate all those who choose to source their pet/companion dogs via a shelter.
It also really thrills me to see a service dog, a working dog, a sporting dog, etc. that has found its way there via the shelter format.
Congratulations and thanks again.
