Here at 97.3 The Dawg we just love our four-legged furry friends.

Unfortunately, there are more animals than you may imagine that need a good home. Shelters throughout Acadiana are sometimes overflowing with lovable, family friendly dogs that are just looking for someone to care and love them.

We decided to try to help out in this cause by getting more of these sweet babies adopted and/or fostered into loving homes.

In the above video you'll meet Belle. Her adopter recently passed away and she is super sad and heartbroken! They loved one another and enjoyed each other's companionship, but now Belle has returned to the shelter.

She is looking for a foster or her forever home. She is 4-years-old, weighs around 30 pounds is super sweet and very well mannered. Please consider opening your heart and home to Belle. It would mean the world to her!

To apply to meet and possibly foster or adopt Belle, where she is patiently waiting for his forever home, please visit:

You can also follow them on Facebook at Animal Rescue Foundation of Louisiana. They are currently looking for fosters, volunteers and sponsors at ARFLA.

You won’t change the world by saving one animal, but you will change that animal’s world!
