If you would love to adopt a dog as a companion animal but simply can’t offer the time or proper home for him, do the next best thing: Help train adoptable dogs. Volunteering time at a shelter to train dogs to walk calmly and obey basic commands like “sit” and “stay” helps make them more adoptable to potential families. You'll get your one-on-one time with a dog while helping your local animal shelter, too. And don’t forget: Use your social media platforms to promote adoptable dogs! If you love him, maybe one of your followers will take the leap and adopt him.
