The goal of this campaign is to make people aware how they can make a difference for the dogs in their community. There are many ways but one way that stands out among all others is ADOPTION. This campaign is designed to promote and encourage dog adoptions and encourage people to encourage others to adopt via social media and other ways. Shelter pets all across Ohio and the United States need help finding their happy homes. Please remember the world needs people like you to make a difference and you can make a difference right here in Holmes County Ohio
