Paw It Forward

With Black Friday in the rearview mirror, it's time to think outside the big box store. In the spirit of do-good, feel-good opportunities, I introduce Maggie (Magnum, officially). He's been living in a Dogs Deserve Better foster home for three years. Now, I'm not suggesting you run out and adopt Maggie in a burst of egg nog-fueled euphoria. Adoption is obviously a serious commitment. But how about simply showering him with presents—a collar, leash, treats or a new washable bed, in particular—through DDB's Sponsor A Foster Dog Program?

And he’s not the only one. Maggie is one of many foster dogs, who were chained or penned for their entire lives before being rescued by DDL. They and their people could use a lift this season. Read the stories, view the photos, and tackle the wishlists of Freckles, Banshee, Maizy, Hannah Banana and the others. And deal with your own gift list by sponsoring a dog in the name of a pup-loving friend.
