They are the four-legged friends that steal our hearts and lick our faces. Dogs. Many would say they love their canine companions just as much (if not more) than their human counterparts.
In celebrating the day of the dog, it's a time to draw much needed attention to the thousands of unlucky dogs who don't have the luxury of a forever home.

And if you're looking for a love with four legs, CMPD's Animal Care and Control is offering a special until the end of August. Adoption fees for dogs have been reduced to only $10, cats and kittens, $5.
