My mom recently rescued a dog named Bing. Bing had been in two different states before landing with a foster family in New Jersey. She'd been shuffled around a bit in her first year and a half of life. And, I feel like when I look into Bing's eyes, it's as if she's thanking my mom and our family for her salvation. I would imagine all the rescue dog moms and dads who shared photos with us see the same thing in their pups' eyes. How about you?

Flip through a photo gallery of South Jersey rescue dogs below. They'll certainly bring a smile to your face, and maybe even inspire you to open your own heart and home to a pet in need.
