October is Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog-Month! The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is dedicating this month to the millions of dogs out there in need of forever homes.
If you or anyone you know has room in their home and heart for one more lovable pup, the ASPCA asks you to please consider adopting from a local shelter. According to the Humane Society of the United States, an estimated 6-8 million homeless animals end up in shelters every year. Sadly, only about half of these animals will find homes.
If you think you are ready to be a responsible life-long companion for a dog in need, please visit the ASPCA for tips on how to prepare your home and family. If you’re not in a position to adopt a dog right now, you can help by just getting the word out about Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog-Month!
