Here at 97.3 The Dawg we’re kind of a little partial to 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 video above you’ll meet our buddy Otto. He's been waiting over 517 days.

That's Otto's number. He's been waiting that long for his foster or forever family. Otto was abandoned when his owner was evicted from their house, but he didn't let that get to him. He has personality plus on his side!

Otto is one of the friendliest, happy-go-luckiest guys you'll ever meet. His favorites things to do are hanging out, riding shotgun, playing with dog and human friends.

Otto is three years old, weights about 50 pounds, and is a male shepherd/hound mix.  He is affectionate, eager to please, intelligent, goofy, house and crate trained. Please consider fostering or adopting Otto & sharing his story.

To meet & possibly adopt or foster Otto, apply at www.arfla.org. Follow us on facebook at Animal Rescue Foundation of Louisiana.

We are currently for fosters, volunteers & sponsors at ARFLA. You wont' change the world by saving one animal, but you will Change That Animals World! We can Make A Difference today!
