As many of you might know, October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month – and what kind of animal advocates would we be if we didn’t spread the word about this amazing mission? Dedicated to bringing homeless dogs into the spotlight, Adopt a Shelter Dog Month is the perfect opportunity to consider saving an animal’s life and welcoming a new pal into your family.
This month is especially near and dear to our hearts. We absolutely adore dogs and all of the love, activity, and laughter they bring into our lives and the lives of our animal-loving fans. From therapy dogs to herding pups to your favorite furry couch potato, dogs have the ability to fulfill so many amazing roles in the lives of humans that it’s hard for us to imagine life without them. If we had the means, we’d adopt every last one. Check with your local shelter as they might be running special adoption promotions throughout the month as well!
If you are unable to bring a furry pal home, your time is a wonderful thing to donate to shelter pups in need as well. You can walk them, feed them, love them, donate and/or clean towels, hose down kennels… You name a task, and chances are your local shelter will happily accept your offering to do it. You may also entertain the idea of fostering, as it frees up space at the shelter for another pet in need while also giving that pet a loving place to rest until their forever family adopts them.
