Weekend Getaways: Fun for You and Your Dog

Fishers, Indiana: August 21, 2009 – Fall is the perfect time to take a weekend getaway.

Thinking About Getting a Dog? Adopt, Don’t Shop!

Fishers, Indiana: August 1, 2009Are you considering getting a dog for your family or yourself? If so, you should consider adopting from the Humane Society or other "rescue" agency rather than buying from a pet store. Many pet stores get their dogs from puppy mills. Only 20% of pet dogs are adopted, yet millions fill shelters every year, and many of those are euthanized if not adopted.
