Here at 97.3 The Dawg we kind of are a little partial to our four-legged furry friends. Yep, we love our pooches.

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 Houston. He's a 4-year-old, 60 pound lab mix. He's a sweet, laid back, gentle sould who loves playing, kisses, napping and hanging out with friends.

Would you like to be his best friend? To meet and possibly adopt or foster Houston, apply at www.arfla.org.

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!
