Jaxon is a handsome boy that was given up for adoption when his parents moved to an apartment. But new dad Sal says this was a good thing. Jaxon used to spend the day in a cage, but his new mom is home all day to play with! Plus Sal's son works at night so he has another playmate for part of the dag. Lucky dog!

Teddy is an aptly named little fellow. Who could be more lovable and squeezable than he, we ask? His new mom, who adopted him from the RISPCA, says, "Teddy is the best thing that ever happened to us. Ever since we adopted him he's been a great friend that loves to play, go on walks and eat meatballs!" We're with Teddy on all three, especially the meatballs. Go Teddy!

Lucky Loki! Just adopted from the #RISPCA, Loki had a family that didn't have time for this energetic pup. New mom Sara recently bought a new house and has the time and space to dedicate to training and loving this big guy. It's a story with a very happy ending for 1 1/2 year old Loki. #adoptdontshop

Elsa is an aptly named one year old American Eskimo with a sweet smile and a happy disposition. She was adopted from the RISPCA at a successful adoption event sponsored at a local Subaru dealer. Over a dozen dogs were adopted! Elsa was given up by a previous owner that didn't have time for her, which is great luck for her new owner Roger. She looks thrilled with her new dad, who definitely won't "Let It/Her Go!".

Rosie is a four year old Min Pin just adopted from the RISPCA. We just LOVE this photo of Rosie and her new dad Manny. So many newly adopted dogs come to us straight from the shelter, and the bond that has already developed between owner and pet is amazing. The dogs have a sense of trust and love that sometimes seems impossible after what they have been through. We hope this photo of two smiling faces puts a big smile on yours too!

These two handsome boxers are father and son, they look alike and act alike! They were both up for adoption and the staff at the RISPCA wanted to see them placed together. Thanks to new mom Amber, they will go to the same home and live out their lives as one family. Congrats!

Maddie was paralyzed after a fall from a deck at her previous home. New mom Julie adopted this cutie along with her wheelchair! A sweet face and a happy new life!

Tuesday's Adoption Tale: Jesse James Steals a Heart. This little Cairn Terrier mix is a nine year old love bug. His new mom said, " I'm old and so is he, so I knew we were made for each other!" Plus, a cute face and an even cuter name doesn't hurt! Congrats to Jesse and his new mom! ‪#‎adoptdontshop‬

Winston is a sweet 10 year old King Charles Spaniel mix that just got adopted from the RISPCA. His new mom wants to do pet therapy with him, and his disability won't stop them. Winston is deaf! Just looking at him makes us feel better, how about you?

Lotus is a 7 year old Shih Tzu that was adopted by new mom Susan. She was given up when her old owner had to undergo cancer treatments and couldn't take care of her. "We fell in love at first sight. I feel truly blessed!" It's obviously a match made in heaven! #adopt #dogs

Kobe is a one and a half year old mix of lab and shepherd. He's really big and really sweet; a gentle giant as his new mom says. He sports the Up Country Anchors Aweigh collar, maybe getting ready for new adventures a sea!



They just need love
