For over 100 years, Coldwell Banker has helped people find homes, and now our mission extends to man’s best friend. Because there’s nothing like coming home — especially when there’s a furry friend waiting on the other side of the door — we’ve teamed up with Adopt-a-Pet.com, North America’s largest non-profit pet adoption website, to help 20,000 adoptable dogs find a loving home this year.

Did You Know
More US Households have dogs than have children – and people consider them part of the family. Since, much of the rental inventory is not pet-friendly, the ability to have pets – especially dogs - is an obvious advantage to home ownership.
Coldwell Banker believes in "Home Sweet Home. We share that feeling we all get when we're on our way home. You know that feeling you get when you walk through the door, kick off your shoes and you can just relax because you're home. #homerocks
But what goes on when your not at home and who is waiting for you on the other side of the door. That is the heart of our campaign Homes For Dogs. This year, we're taking a look at things from the view of man's best friend (and Home’s Best Friend) who's anxiously awaiting your arrival and the excitement that bursts out as soon as you walk through the door.
