If you haven’t seen the movie “Marley and Me” in a while, watch it tonight. It’s the cutest puppy movie ever. Duh.

After crying your eyes out at the end, head to Instagram. National Puppy Day is the one time of the year you can spend the day looking at cute puppy photos and video without much judgment. (We know some of you already do this anyway.)

The last thing you could do today is a huge commitment — make sure you’re ready for it — but if you have room in your heart, it’ll be easy. Head to the Belleville Area Humane Society at 1301 S. 11th St.

The animal shelter has more than 30 dogs in need of a good home. Two of those dogs are puppies, and they’re seriously cute.

Archer and King Thor have captured the hearts of Humane Society employees and volunteers. Now it’s time for them to find a family of their own.

On a recent visit to the animal shelter, the Belleville News-Democrat spent time with Archer, a loveable 8-month-old puppy who’s only been there about week.

If you ask us, he’s already an extraordinary dog. He loves to snuggle, is well trained and of course, Archer loves anything that smells like bacon.

We didn’t get to spend time with King Thor because he’s been feeling under the weather lately, but we know he’s a loveable Labrador Retriever with a big a heart. King Thor is 10 months old.

Stop by to visit them this week. The Belleville Area Humane Society is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. today. For more information call, (618) 235-3712 or visit bahspets.org.
