Marjoram and Miller

In case you missed the memo, we're right in the middle of the Soirée Cutest Dog Contest, with 50 adorable pups vying for the crown in the first round. (Vote for your favorite here!) And while we had hundreds of submissions from around the metro, we know many of you are in the market for your very own furry bundle of joy.

Cue Central Arkansas Rescue Effort (CARE) for Animals, the Little Rock-based organization that has helped more than 3,850 animals find homes. If you're on the hunt for a new pup, we highly suggest visiting their website.

To help get the party started, we'd like to introduce you to two of the adoptable dogs at CARE right now. Think you might want to make them part of your family? Begin with the online adoption application.

*Dogs in this Paws in Prison program are trained under the AKC Canine Good Citizen standards, and are specifically selected to be family and companion dogs. They spend 24 hours a day with their trainers. For that reason, they will do best in homes where they are primarily inside dogs and spend lots of time with their families. The adoptive families will receive Marjoram’s or Miller's training journal, which documents their arrival from the shelter, daily training progress and interactions with trainers.
