Adopt Me! Mallory Is Happy to Be Your Pool Lounger

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Mallory, a 3-year-old Lab mix who has been with the Eleventh Hour Rescue of Rockaway, New Jersey, for more than one year.

Even though it's only temporary, Mallory is making the most of her loving foster home before she finds that place to spend forever. "She has playful bursts of energy and likes to play tug of war and chase after balls," says foster mom Tammi Green-Strelkoff. "When she's finished playing, she'll curl up next to you or find a cozy spot next to you and just hang out for some quiet time."

Lovely, sweet and kind are just some of the adjectives friends have used to describe the incomparable Robin Williams. And, if they could find the words, it's likely his furry friends would describe the late actor in much the same way.

Williams's Instagram feed is filled with adorable shots of him kicking back with many an animal friend, including his road dog Verna Pearl (above), whose unexpected passing last year left him deeply saddened.

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Muffin and Scruffy, a bonded pair of pups who were given up after a divorce.

These purebred Jack Russell terriers arrived at the Potter League for Animals of Middletown, Rhode Island, at the beginning of August. In their previous home, they were left alone for long periods of time, which made them extremely close. They're totally best friends, but definitely in need of a little human TLC.

Dog Finds Newborn Baby Abandoned by Side of Road

It was a road less traveled by Jeff Kopp and his dog, Bobby.

But something inspired the pooch to take a different route down Marion Road on Monday in Diamond Lake, Michigan, and it's a good thing that Kopp obliged.

The dog pulled his owner to a satellite dish just three feet away from the dirt road where a newborn baby had been left.

"I saw what [looked like] a rabbit at first," Kopp told WOOD TV8. "Then it moved. That's when I started yelling."

The hours-old baby girl, whose umbilical cord was still attached, was lying in the fetal position with leaves on her face, according to Kopp's daughter Cathleen Neal, who ran to her father's aid along with his wife.

For Miranda Lambert, home is where her dogs are.

The singer is currently mother to six adorable pups – Waylon, Bellamy, Cher, Delta Dawn, Jessi and Black Betty – and counting.

"I have a little plaque in my house that says: 'There is always room for one more dog,' " she tells PEOPLE.

Lambert, 30, has been rescuing strays since she was a little girl, but it was her first shelter dog, Delilah, who inspired her to found the MuttNation Foundation.

"I started the foundation in 2009 along with my mom and two other board members, with the mission of raising funds to help dogs and shelters," she says.
