October is Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month, and that means it’s time to pay tribute to all things canine and get more homeless pups into forever homes. There are several ways you can help out this month. If you are looking for a dog, start visiting local shelters or online pet organizations with profiles of dogs up for adoption and in need of a home.
Also, spreading the word about adopting a dog as opposed to buying one can help inform friends and family
who may be looking for one. Show your support for the cause whenever you can and
let your others know how they can help.
What Can An Adopted Dog Bring To Your Life?
Are you looking for:
• an exercise buddy?
• a best friend and confidant for your child?
• a dog you can train with to learn animal-assisted therapy?
• a partner in agility competitions?
• a constant companion for your favorite senior citizen?
• a fuzzy face to greet you after a hard day at work?
An adopted dog can be all these things -- and so much more!
Your local shelter is the perfect place to find dogs of every type, size, age and personality -- all waiting for a loving home. Or, if you prefer a particular breed that isn’t currently available at a shelter, go online to find a breed-specific rescue group in need of adopters like you!
