Have you ever wished you had a dog to walk on a crisp evening but can't commit to full time pet ownership? A revolutionary new dog share program (started in San Francisco and expanding to Seattle, Portland and Los Angeles) allows full time owners share their doggy time with others.

While some may scoff at the idea of sharing man's best friend, if the alternative is the animal being caged in a shelter or neglected by a devoted but busy owner, it could be great for the animals. The program could be especially effective for people who have pet restrictions in their homes, want to experience different breeds, or just have some puppy love to give, but can't make the full time commitment.

The idea that the pet share program can help alleviate concerns of overburdened and overcrowded shelters is an undeniable benefit of the programs as well.
