Our annual pets issue features the "least adoptable" pets at four local shelters and rescue groups, our readers' pet tales, and pet-related news.

Dog Days of Summer 2008

The most difficult thing about the Indy's annual pets issue is having to choose only a few readers' stories to print. So we've put additional readers' tales online.

This year, we drew the names of four local shelters and rescue groups out of a fish bowl and asked them to write a story about their "least adoptable" pet. Our hope is that one of you will give one of these pets (or any of their rescue and shelter brethren) a home.

For pet-related news, see "Durham commissioners to weigh tethering ordinance" and "Animal euthanasia rules languish over language."
