DogsInDanger.com was launched in October 2007 with the goal of getting as many shelter dogs adopted into loving homes as possible, before their time runs out; and raising awareness of the number of dogs being killed in shelters. DogsInDanger.com believes in the power of compassion, and that Americans would do more to help and adopt shelter dogs, if only they knew how many dogs shelters were forced to euthanize. Simply put, we have chosen a path of technology as a means of connecting these scared, abandoned shelter dogs with the loving homes they deserve. As a nonprofit organization, we seek no other gain except for the happiness we see in the face of a dog as he faithfully walks out through the shelter doors, in perfect step with his loving new family.
