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.

Emerson is a 9 year old stoic boy who enjoys hanging out. He loves running and playing alone or with a group of his best friends. He's a very smart and a curious companion who loves exploring new things, so don't let his age fool you! He enjoys rolling around in the grass, being with nature and enjoys a dip in the kiddy pool. Emerson enjoys being loved and is looking for his forever family. Please consider Emerson during his golden years!

To apply to meet and possibly foster or adopt Emerson, where he 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!
