October - National Adopt A Dog Month

The more I work with the rescue groups, the more I am seeing the need to adopt from a shelter. Over 12,000 dogs and cats are euthanized A DAY in the US.  Please, please consider a shelter dog for your next pet! Although we love Dozer to pieces, we have made the committment that our next addition will definitely be from a shelter.

Adopt-A-Dog Month®

October is American Humane Association's Adopt-A-Dog Month

What Can an Adopted Dog Bring to Your Life?

There are as many responses to that question as there are dogs in this world! That’s why -- during American Humane Association’s Adopt-A-Dog Month celebration in October -- we’re encouraging people to adopt a shelter dog and experience the joy of finding their own answers.
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.

Find out what a shelter or rescue dog can bring to your life this October during Adopt-A-Dog Month.
